3.5 would be my true rating. I liked the retelling, but found it to be a little too repetitive in thoughts of the characters and too predictable as well. it was good, but not "that" good. ( )

They don't look back, as though they're afraid I'm part of the bad dream as well. I think they might be right.

(look at this cover. LOOK AT THIS COVER. LOOOOK AT THIS COVERRR)

Man I always wish I could be more certain and decisive when I review books, but some of them just sit in that awkward place that can only be described as "not for me and I figured it out too late." I enjoyed it generally and although it came off as a bit repetitive, it tore quickly enough through its (180 ebook) pages to keep me reading it on transit and between classes.

A solid, shining aspect of it was Scarlett, specifically, and Scarlett and Rosie's relationship, in the broad sense. I bought both their fixations and debts, perceived or otherwise - Scarlett so often felt so /right/. I love that little spot where few heroes fit, the Buffy Summers spot, where the hero is so infuriatingly fixated on their mission but you know that they have no other choice and they're a better person for taking this route. They're kind of admirable alongside how frustrating they are. They're the people that refuse to turn a blind eye to terrible things and take full responsibility. I liked how Rosie wasn't 100% either way - she felt the responsibility to not let people die, to not let down her sister, but still wanted her own life. This effect was lessened a little because there was actually nothing standing in the way of her dating Silas, honestly...dating Silas would put her in the same position as Scarlett having him as a partner, just with more smooching. (I mean, after Scarlett got over it.)

In the third act I could see what was up and why it was important, but I felt like it was delivered with too much melodrama to both take seriously and appreciate. It felt like it was searching for a theme to latch onto and never quite got there, keeping me at arm's length but still managing to shape a nice relationship/emotional arc.

Maybe that's my main hang-up? The melodrama. The cheese. The Disney death. Maybe I'm just old and crotchety and "I love you" sounds so cheesy in a serious story. (Also, 'my love.' I had this weird feeling like I was watching a really cringy couple make out in public when Rosie thought of him that way.) We had a head-on collision with Silas romance that definitely felt like it fit, but something in the execution and the intensity felt way too massive for the scope. It overshadowed Scarlett at vital moments. I felt so much more for Scarlett and Rosie & Scarlett and Silas. Maybe I'm just biasing Scarlett.

Anyhow, very cool monsters, some really nice prose, and damn what a stunning exit there, Rosie. It started melting in cheese in the third act but held up nicely besides. JUSTICE 4 SCARLETT 2K17 ( )

I did enjoy this book it was a nice retelling of the "little red riding hood"
There were some things I wish were different but I'm not the author........ ( )

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce is an urban fantasy story about the March sisters, Scarlet and Rosie, who hunt werewolves, in this book called Fenris, who prey on teenage girls. Scarlet lives to hunt these creatures, arming herself with a hatchet and knives, wearing a blood red cloak, she lures and kills them to save other young girls. Her sister, Rosie, feels she owes Scarlet her life as in their first encounter with a Fenris, Scarlet protected her although it cost Scarlet an eye. Although Rosie is very adapt at the hunt, she does dream of having a different life, one that doesn’t involve so much death. She is drawn to their hunting partner, Silas, but is concerned that loving him will make Scarlet feel betrayed.

While this dark version of Little Red Riding Hood had many ingredients that I usually enjoy, I never really found this book very appealing. The character’s were rather boring and a little too transparent. Scarlet being the angry, bitter and bossy sister, while Rose was too compliant and weak. I also think I am just not a fan of urban fantasy as I found the whole concept did not match well within a modern setting. An example of this was having the sisters use hatchets, in these days I would think they would have had more efficient and stronger weapons.

Overall I simply found Sisters Red to be too predictable, too silly and too unbelievable and not a book I would recommend to anyone. ( )

My advice: don't go into this thinking it will change your life. It won't. It's a YA fairy tale retelling in a genre full of them, and there are certain things (like using hatchets instead of guns, or the romance or the twist) that will just have to be taken without comment.

I did enjoy this. I particularly loved the different voices we get through the alternating POV--Scarlett and Rose are so different from one another, but still fully formed, codependent, and sort of twisted young women. Scarlett, in particular, is aware of her darker impulses and accepts them as part of who she is. Not in any kind of broody way, but because she knows better than to try to change herself. (I took her view toward "dragonflies" or "innocents" to be part of that: how *she,* specifically views the world, not as a victim-blaming thing. But now that it's been pointed out to me, I can see it and certainly wouldn't begrudge anyone who disagreed with me.)

What I DID hate was how a boy came between the sisters. They worked it out eventually, and that new introduction to their relationships is part of their evolution, but I really, really hated how Silas sort of seduced Rosie away from hunting/Scarlett's way of life as it was happening. ( )

Pearce is on the mark with this modern-day retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Told by the sisters in alternating chapters, this well-written, high-action adventure grabs readers and never lets go.
