Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts fiercely alongside her. Now Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves and finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax-- but loving him means betraying her sister and has the potential to destroy all they've worked for.
I don’t read many retellings but after this book, I feel like I should continue with more. Sisters Red (if you haven’t guessed it), is a great, modern twist on the old tale of Little Red Riding Hood. Which means yes, the wolves are the bad guys in this one and not some romantic love interest. Refreshing already, right?
The story is told through alternating chapters of each sister, which I thoroughly enjoyed because it allows the reader a chance to see the characters from different angles depending on whose point of view you're reading from. And not only do you get to know more about the well developed characters that way, but more about Scarlett, Rose and Silas’s way of life as well and how they really feel about it.
Another thing I enjoyed was the fact that Rosie and Scarlett kicked some serious butt. They were fierce, strong hunters; characters that I wish I could see more of in YA.
Overall, I really liked this novel. Jackson Pearce wove together a great, fresh tale of love, friendship and sisterhood. And following your heart.
I definitely recommend picking up a copy!
