Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Scarlett was eleven when she was bitten, torn and ripped apart, along with her whole world. There was little choice in the matter when she threw herself in front of her sister to save her from the 'wolf', but it was not enough to save her grandmother. Scarlett changed that day but not into one of then, she became a hunter of them.
Rosie can't remember a time without them in her life, werewolves some call them, but that is not their true name. Only a couple of years younger, Rosie watched in horror as her sister took on the 'wolf' to save her, now Rosie lives for her sister. She hunts them with her sister; she hunts them for her sister.
Hunting is their life, the only life Rosie knows, for Scarlett it is the only life she wants. It is a passion that drives Scarlett and Rosie is happy to follow until she sees how different life could be, until she discovers her own passion. But Rosie is indebted to Scarlett; she could never not hunt, could she?
Sisters Red is a twisted fairy tale of loyalty, love and big bad wolves. It is a world where heroines bleed, romance is forbidden and hidden secrets threaten to destroy all that they have fought to protect. A tender and sweet story of sisterly love that must battle through the dark and bloody world of betrayal, loss and monsters to find a life that is filled with passion.
