Review - Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

Once I really got in to Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce I couldn't put it down. It took me a while because I've been busy lately and hadn't really gotten a chance to sit down with it, but I'd always enjoyed it when I picked it up.

I must say it was a nice departure from the "Oh my gosh he's a werewolf? That's so hot!" that I've read before. Now, before you say anything... I LOVE Cole from The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater and I've swooned over Jacob from the Twilight Saga on more than one occasion. I have no problem with THAT kind of werewolf. It just nice to remember that originally, werewolves were bad guys. Hehe.

I liked the fact that Rosie's and Silas's relationship took so long to develop. It didn't seem forced that way. It had me wondering right along with her if he was really just trying to be friendly and she was reading too much into it or if there actually was something there.

Once Scarlett discovered the romance, she kind of started to irritate me. Acting like everyone owed her something. She was really selfish. Everyone had to feel the way she felt about what she was doing. No one was allowed to have a life. Heck, Rosie was SCARED to tell her that she'd been taking community classes. Seriously?

Ok, I get that she was totally wicked heroic at the beginning, saving Rosie's life and risking her own in the process. I get that she's scarred now (literally and figuratively). I get the emotional issues. But to lord it over her for the rest of her life in order to get her to do what you want instead of doing what's best for HER? Selfish. :-\

Maybe that's heartless of me. I just don't agree with making someone pay for something over and over and over and over.

I loved the book. I really did. Despite the selfishness and all that. I think it was phenomenal. It totally grabbed me and wouldn't let me go every time I picked it up. I highly recommend it as a read for everyone.


  1. Ooh, I've been meaning to read this one for a while! I love retellings, and I agree with you, it's neat to see a book that doesn't conform to the trends now (such as nice werewolves) just to mix things up a little :)

    I'm glad you posted a review for this one even though it came out a while ago! Those reviews can be harder to find :)

  2. Dahh thank you - this has been chilling on my Kindle but since it came out before I really started reading book blogs I never saw anyone felt about it. Will have to finally give it a try now. :)


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read/leave a comment! It is always appreciated!
