Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce A Review

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

This is a Little Red Riding Hood reimagined and redesigned. She has added in more characters, changed the thinking of our main characters and added a dash of modern days to the story line.

Our main characters are two sisters living with their grandmother. Like in the original story a werewolf kills the poor grandmother and maims the older of the two sisters. Leaving her without an eye and lots of scars. She becomes engulfed with the need to kill the werewolves that the killed her family. She has learned that there are things that go bump in the night and that they love to kill specifically young girls dressed in red, its an alluring color for them.

She has really written out characters you can relate to and characters you can feel for. Written in is a love between sisters, one sister feeling compelled to follow in her sisters footsteps because she saved her life when she was younger, and the love that springs up between two people during dire situations.

I love that she shows the determination of one and the desire to fly in the other giving them such different personalities but the same goals and desires. Making them seem at times like one but at other times two different girls from two very different worlds.
