Review - Sisters Red - 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 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 loved this book despite starting off thinking I probably wouldn't. I'd heard a few things to say it was little slow (which it is to start with) and that the main character was very much focused on hunting (which she was) but I don't really think these were faults. I loved how the story started by filling you in with the background giving you time to get properly introduced to the characters. I loved the bond between the two sisters. Scarlett reminded me a little of Buffy the vampire slayer in her drive for the hunt. It is what she is all about and what drives her. I think it takes you right until the end before you really grasp the point of it and click why it is so important. On the other hand I totally understand rosie and how she doesn't want to be labelled and is torn being being loyal to her sister and doing her own thing. I must admit I saw the first of the twists but not the second. Both of those things made the end of the book amazing. I would not have been abl to put it down if I'd tried. Fab book, brilliant reworking for an old fairy tale, excellent cover. Fingers crossed for a sequel!
