  • Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (June 7, 2010)

  • REVIEW YYYY

    Sisters Red is unlike any story I have read before. Filled with sisterly devotion, hidden romance and dangerous wolves that will not leave you thinking of Jacob Black.

    Jackson Pearce has created a world that is so descriptive and frightening that it made me question the sounds that went bump in the night. SISTERS RED is well told, packed with suspense and nail biting action that keeps you gripping your book for dear life.

    SISTERS RED centers on Scarlett and Ruby, sisters that have become a powerhouse duo of wolf assassins. Although both are trained it is Lett that is obsessed with killing them all. Ruby longs for a different life but feels obligated to Lett because she sacrificed herself to save her. Then a long departed friend returns to the fold and things between Lett and Ruby change. Ruby begins to seek happiness outside of the bloodshed and finds romance and a new lease on life while Lett only seems even more obsessed on taking down a new coven. Their worlds are both going down different roads that will ultimately collide but will their relationship survive? or will they both perish.

    This story is told in two different points of view from each sister's perspective and although it is a different approach I would have preferred only having only one POV. Scarlett had a darker and more complex storyline that I preferred while Ruby seemed a bit boring in comparison. Still, the story concept is unique and Jackson Pearce did a fantastic job with this world of evil wolves and it's sisterly duo of assassins.

    If your a fan of kick-ass heroines and storylines with a dark edge then this is the book for you.

    I would love to see what you have to say :)

    “Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
