so i understand why barnes and noble has this filed under "teen paranormal romance," but that is really a terrible designation. frankly,it is terrible that such a category even exists, or that there are such a substantial number of books in the section. to my way of thinking, it should really only be like half a shelf, like the agriculture section in our store.

Hmm, this is a very difficult book to rate. One one hand, it contains most of the elements I consider important in a good urban fantasy novel: tough heroines, nice love interest - but with the story focus being on bigger things than whether or not they'll get together, mean and nasty supernaturals, touch of grittiness... yet I still had a few problems. I thought Rosie was a very dull
Okay, Sisters Red, we need to sit down and have a little chat.

I love strong characters. I love strong female character. I especially love strong female characters who happen to kick a lot of arse. You think there isn't a difference, but actually, there's plenty. Because sometimes writers try to have strong, kickass female characters, but only end up with the kick-ass part and leave the strong one out.

To put it in another way, whenever I read books like Sisters Red, I feel like the writer wanted
I loved Pearce's debut novel, As You Wish.... and while I loved the idea of Sisters Red.... I just enjoy it quite as much as I did As You Wish.

I loved how Pearce portrayed Rosie and Scarlett's world... it was almost like they lived in this fairy tale realm that was on the outer edge of a world much like our own, there was something very notable about that. And I loved the relationship between the sisters. Having two sisters of my own, I understand how strong of a bond sisterhood can be. Not to m
Lisa (Fic Talk)
The beginning was good, then I got impatient and it just felt like Rosie was whining a little to me. And the age thing with her and Silas. Dude. No. She's basically still a kid, no matter how 'different' she looks physically. A lot of people look older than their age, does that mean that it's okay? She's underage. Not legal. He's an adult. Plain and simple. And I felt so bad for Scarlett. Didn't she deserve SOME sort of romantic interest? Jeez, just because she's scarred that makes it okay for g ...more
Originally reviewed on The Book Smugglers back in 2010 (a few months later this review caused a shitstorm online and you can read about it here).

Ana’s take:


I could tell you that for the first pages of this book I was completely engrossed in the story. How could I not? I mean, a dark, violent even, retelling of Red Riding Hood in which two sisters are the hunters who kill the wolves? I am in. It helps that the first pages were very gripping: back in the past when the kids lived with their
“Knowledge does have a way of making you an outcast.”

This story isn't very similar to Little Red Riding Hood though the concept is. Wolves. Or in accurate words, Werewolves. And they are completely mean and nasty and gritty and... Oh, they are just your typical mean bad wolves.

If you want me to describe this book in one sentence then this is what I would have said:
This book is action - packed.

Each action filled event is described in so much detail that it doesn't get repetitive or boring to r

Let me start off by saying that I enjoyed the first 1/3 or so of this book. But then stupid things started happening (repetitive action scenes, insta-love which seriously annoyed me... ugh.)
Sophie Riggsby
First let me explain that a wonderful friend shared her ARC copy of Sisters Red, so I had the pleasure of reading prior to its release date on June 2, 2010.

I often think that re-told fairy tales can go only one of two ways: slightly dull or brilliantly twisted. Sisters Red is definitely in the latter category.

Take the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and turn it around into a story about sibling bonds and rivalry. Now, mix in the mythology of The Wolf only make it darker and more modern. Then you'

Sisters Red is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. There's a wolf and a grandma but that's really all the two have in common. In this version there are two sisters, Rosie and Scarlett, and after their encounter with a werewolf they become hunters.

Dislikes: I don't understand why the girls dropped out of school. I think it would have been totally possible for them to hunt and go to school. Buffy finished high school while guarding the Hellmouth. Why are they wearing cloaks? They could wear an

From the second page of this book when a man's smile simultaneously faded and grew more forced, to the 321st page when the sister's entangled their arms around each other and sniffed each other's hair, I hated every single thing about this book.

Clearly, the writing was a problem. It was awkward, contradictory, and stilted. I wasn't expecting the plot to break barriers, but the big "twist" was so badly telegraphed that I saw it 150 page
Carolyn (Book Chick City)
This isn't a run-of-the-mill werewolf book, but a very intelligently written story loosely based on the Red Riding Hood fairy tale. This is quite a special little book, from the depth of emotion felt by the characters to the attention to detail of their lives and surroundings.

I really enjoyed the relationships between the characters, Scarlett, Rosie and Silas. The relationships are quite complex and yet simple at the same time. Simple because they all love each other and would do anything to pro
Before I started to read this book, I had kind of mixed feelings about it. Whereas I have only heard good things about Jackson Pearce's debut, As You Wish, Sisters Red has received mixed reviews.

A cruel attack of a Fenris, a soulless wolf-man craving young women's blood, has destroyed the lives of the two March sisters Scarlett and Rosie. Now Scarlett, heavily scarred and thinking of herself as an outcast, is committed to hunt the monsters and revenge her grandmother's death. Her younger sister
Jackson Pearce's dark retelling and continuation of Little Red Riding Hood is really good: Excellently written, cleverly adapted and highly original. So do not be put off by my rating. It's not the book, it's me: As I passed the first-third-mark I sensed that I was feeling more and more depressed and my sympathy for both sisters overshadowed my pleasure in reading the story. It must be a sign of Pearce's great writing that the tension, the guilt and the strange bond between the sisters, who have ...more
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce delivers a perfectly crafted, suspenseful modern twist on a famous fairy tale.

Pearce does not miss a beat when it comes to blending all the right elements to keep the reader engaged and riveted as two sisters, who are committed to protecting the world of the dangerous Fenris, risk what it takes to fight for what they believe in. Scarlett and Rosie’s sisterly devotion mixed with Silas’ bond to the girls was a captivating read that kept me engaged with page after pag

Sister Red is the modern day version of the timeless storybook; Little Red Riding Hood, only in this re-telling, it's much darker, deeper and desperate.

We begin our tale with two sisters, Scarlett and Rosie March.
Scarlett is devoted to the hunt, or more like obsessed, given that seven years before, a Fenris stole the lives of there grandmother and left her with countless battle scars, including an eye. Now, an eighteen year old Scarlett, with the help of partner-in-crime Silas, has made it her l
I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And this book is like a great, top-notch episode of Buffy, sans vampires, but rife with werewolves. I don't want to give too much away about this novel, since it won't be released for a while. But, let me share with you why Scarlett March (and Rosie March, though to a lesser extent) is a way better superhero than Buffy.
Buffy has super slayer strength. Scarlett is strong, but there's no super powers here. Scarlett has years of consistent, brutal training and a po
I am hereby going to amend my review.

I was bored the other day and decided to look back at all my old reviews. I think this was one of the first I ever wrote, and one of the first YA books I read. I read it before I read the T-word. Yeah. That was like, AGES ago. Practically the stone age.

Anyway, I've been on something of a YA journey of discovery since I read this. As a result, everything I felt toward it has been erased and changed completely. I liked this like I might have liked Fallen, when

I love fairytale retellings. Love love love them. Especially modern ones. I wouldn't say this book is one of my favorite YA fairytale retellings, but I guess I enjoyed it.

Scarlett and Rosie are sisters who live in a world where Fenriswerewolves who murder and consume young girlsroam everywhere. One had taken out Scarlett's eye when she was younger, and since then she had been a determined hu

This book has a really great concept. I was truly excited to read it,then I started reading it. I am so happy that I borrowed it and didn't buy it, because it's bad. Basically two girls find out young that werewolves are real but not how you think. They are essentially men who crave the flesh of hot sexy coeds, yeah. Only men are wolves, and they grunt sexually they pant like they are horny and just want to eat you. The sisters wear red because the wolf men are also attracted to that, but they t ...more

Sisters Red is a very original and interesting take on Little Red Riding Hood. Everyone knows that story, but Jackson Pearce was able to refresh a familiar story with new life, injecting it with modern sensibilities. The thing I loved most in the book was the relationships between the characters. The bonds between Rosie and Scarlett, Scarlett and Silas, and Silas and Rosie are so strong and genuine.

I liked the mechanisms behind becoming a Fenris. It wasn't comp

Damn. This is exactly what happened to me two years ago when I tried reading this series. Started out with the second book, Sweetly, and loved that one. Then decided to read Sister's Red because WEREWOLVES. If I remember correctly I have the same problems I had two years ago. The pacing is very slow, I couldn't connect with Scarlett and Rosie, and just the fact that a 16 year old might end up with a 21 year old guy. The fact that she is under age I am not a fan with. Fyi I have NOT finish

Loved the details, sisterly bonds, werewolves, and details. Liked the romance between two of the characters.

After reading this book I wanted to call all my sisters. I wanted to buy a red cape and be scarlett.

 Eden Creed
I had a difficult time becoming engrossed in this story. It's well written, the characters are realistic enough, the pace is good, but for some reason I couldn't read for too long at a time without needing breaks.

Scarlett is so difficult to like, even when knowing her background, and even when (knowing that background) her motives and behavior at--to a point--understood. She's selfish and stubborn and it has to be her way or she freaks the bleep out. I was shocked, to be honest, by how her life
