Red Riding Retold

Wolves attack and kill Grandma, but little else is familiar in the retelling of the Red Riding story in Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce. As children Scarlett and Red survive a fenris or werewolf attack that kills their grandmother and horribly scars Scarlett. Now teenagers the girls are avid fenris hunters, which is a good thing considering that fenris attacks seem to be on the rise. The wolves are hunting for a Potential, one of the rare humans that change into wolves when bitten, to add to their pack. The girls, along with their woodsman friend Silas, head to the city to track the killers. Drawing from folklore and mixing in some modern day action and romance, Sisters Red is an engaging read (and an awesome bookcover!).
