What if Little Red Riding Hood carried an axe, and wasn’t afraid to use it?

Sisters Red
By Jackson Pearce

“This well-written, high-action adventure grabs readers and never lets go.” - School Library Journal, starred review

Young adult author Jackson Pearce gives readers a thrilling modern-day twist on the classic Grimm Brothers’ tale with her new novel Sisters Red. Scarlett and Rosie March have spent most of their lives hunting the Fenris, the race of werewolves that transform from handsome men into relentless killers. Ever since a Fenris killed their grandmother and took Scarlett’s eye in a brutal attack years ago, the sisters have honed their skills in fighting back. Donning blood-red cloaks and wielding sharp blades and hatchets, they lure out and kill the Fenris to protect other young girls from a grisly fate.

When the Fenris begin mysteriously growing their ranks and a rash of murders shakes Atlanta, the sisters move to the city in search of answers. While there, Rosie finds herself drawn to Silas, the sisters’ childhood friend who has returned to help them hunt. But as he and Rosie grow closer, their bond threatens to drive the sisters apart, potentially destroying all they’ve worked for.

An empowering story filled with heart-pounding action, fierce sisterly love, and a romance that will leave readers breathless, Sisters Red is not to be missed.

Jackson Pearce is a graduate of the University of Georgia and is now a full-time writer. At twenty-six years old, Sisters Red is already her second published novel. Jackson currently lives in Atlanta and you can visit her online at www.jacksonpearce.com.
