On Sale Date: June 7, 2010
Summary from Goodreads: Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris-- the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.
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.
Twenty-five-year-old Jackson Pearce delivers a dark, taut fairy tale with heart-pounding action, fierce sisterly love, and a romance that will leave readers breathless.
I used to love listening to fairy tales when I was younger, especially when the reader did all the voices for the different characters. Fairy tales are fun because everyone who tells the tale puts their own spin on it, so that no two tellings are exactly the same. I can't wait to see how Jackson Pearce has chosen to retell Little Red Riding Hood.
While I wait for Sisters Red, here are some other fairy tale retellings I will be reading:
Ash by Malinda Lo
Beastly by Alex Finn
Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
Tam Lin by Pamela Dean
