Review: Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

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 ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls' bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett's only friend--but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they've worked for?
This is my new favorite book.  I read this book just in awe.  It is so amazing.  Jackson Pearce is an amazing author, and now I can't wait to read both the next book in this series and her previous published novel.

This book seems like it has it all.  Two sisters, who have had a rough life, which adds a real life element to the story.  A cute and sweet romance.  Werewolves, which add the paranormal effect.  I mean, what more could you want in a book? :)

The thing that I really liked about Sisters Red is that it's different. So many paranormal books that are published today display things in all the same way.  This book doesn't display werewolves in the same way as every other book I've read that has werewolves in them.  Another thing that I really liked about this novel is that it's from a different perspective.  You don't have the perspective of the werewolf, you have the perspective of the werewolf hunter.

Overall, I wouldn't change one thing about this book.  It's wonderful just like it is, and I can see almost everyone enjoying it. :) A+, highly recommended by me.
