The premise to this book was certainly interesting but the delivery - oh so uninspiring! With Scarlet as the strong ugly one and Rosie as the meek pretty one, even the themes pseudo-feminist construct was woefully poorly done, The plot, with its 'twists', was predictable and weak. The characters were flat caricatures. I usually enjoy YA, but this was not one that I will be recommending. ( )

Really enjoyed this Urban Fantasy- you can feel the frustration and futility building to a head- I'll probably read this over again more than once! ( )

Scarlett and Rosie March are sisters. At a young age they are attacked by a fenris (werewolf) and have suffered because of it. Scarlett lives with the memory and scars from the attack, while Rosie lives with her overly obsessed sister who relies on her to "do the right thing." this means hunting the wolves and pretending to be bait.

This retelling of the classic little red riding hood is a modern take. Two girls live in the present time, however don't seem well off enough to carry phones which probably would have helped in some of their troubles. There's a boy who also hunts and is older than both the March sisters, who becomes a love interest, but is a little predictable. I found the story a bit dry for the first half, teenage girl sisters arguing about their lives. The second half was more angst-filled and the plot gets a little better when they go into the big city to hunt.
The climax is very late in this particular work and then rushes to an ending. It was decent but fairly predictable. ( )

This isn't a horrible book, but it doesn't break any new ground. Pearce does a decent job of creating a conflict between the sisters without making one or the other of them obviously wrong. But I thought the Fenris were flat villains: violent and dangerous, yes, but not much developed beyond that (did they do anything besides hunt pretty girls to eat?). The plot twists were often predictable, the worldbuilding was thin in spots, and it strained my suspension of disbelief more than once. at points. I'm guessing I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if I'd read it when I was younger, before I'd read so many similar books. ( )

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.
