Sisters Red is a modern retelling of Little Red Hiding Hood, in which there isn't a well-timed visit from a woodsman to save Grandma and Little Red from the wolf. Grandma dies, and Little Red and her sister dedicate their lives to hunting the werewolves - or Fenris, as they like to call them - that tore their family apart.
The characters are all well fleshed out. Scarlett and Rosie's personalities are distinct, and at odds with each other. Scarlett is the determined, ruthless hunter, and Rosie hunts alongside her because Scarlett saved her life and she feels obligated to do so. Rosie is innocent and sweet, and her sister is hard-hearted and brutal, yet they love each other immensely, and go so far as to say they share the same heart. Their dynamic is an interesting one to read.
Both of the March sisters' voices shined through in their alternating narration, though Scarlett was, at times, hard to connect with because of her obsession with hunting. On hunting, the action scenes in Sisters red were well-written and descriptive, whilst not overbearing or gory.
The romance between Silas and Rosie was sweet and developed slowly and realistically. They had a lot of chemistry, and were childhood friends. I love when main character's fall for old friends rather than the dark, mysterious stranger.
The plot was engaging. Even though it wasn't exactly fast-paced, it never got boring. The main plot complication at first seemed trivial to me - I mean, they wanted to find what the wolves were looking for to use as bait to hunt them, when they could have just hunted them like usual. But the twist comes later, and it begins to make more sense.
I give Sisters Red a 4 out of 5.
