Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

Summary:(from goodreads) 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?
Review: This is the first book in this fairy tale retelling series. It is a retelling of little red riding hood and I really enjoyed it. Although, there are many parallels to the original story. In this book the story is completely transformed into something unique. The plot was paced really well and there were a few surprising plot twists to keep things interesting. The action at the ending worked well, but I was a little bit confused about how things worked out so nicely for them, it's not really explained.  I thought the way things were left was a good ending to the story, but I do wish the epilogue had been a little bit more detailed. Scarlett, Rosie and Silas were all awesome characters. I especially loved the connection between the two sisters. Although, they were both very different they had a very close connection that nothing can break. The history of these three characters really added a lot to the book and made me connect with them even more. So, even though I did have a few small problems I did enjoy this and will definitely continue with the series.
