Waiting On Wednesday (34)

Idea taken from The Breaking Spine

Sisters Read by Jackson Pearce.

Scarlett never believed in the Fenris—werewolves drawn to the delectable charms of young girls. That all changed when in one swift attack, a Fenris murdered her grandmother and left Scarlett half-blind and horrifically scarred. Only her younger sister, Rosie, escaped unharmed as Scarlett shielded her from the Fenris’s jaws.

Now eighteen, Scarlett’s life’s mission is to destroy the Fenris and save other girls from her fate—a mission she’s grown to love, despite herself. Armed with red cloaks and hatchets, Scarlett, Rosie, and a young woodsman, Silas, move to the city in search of answers—and vengeance. If they can find a Potential Fenris, tainted by the pack but not yet consumed by it, they can unlock the mystery that transforms them- but better yet, use him as bait.

But unlike Scarlett, Rosie doesn't feel the thrill of the hunt in her blood. Longing for a life away from heavy responsibility and something sweeter than steel determination, Rosie finds herself drawn to Silas. More and more often, they find themselves abandoning the search for the Potential, stealing kisses, sharing secrets.

When Scarlett discovers the romance blossoming in her midst, she abandons her sister to the woodsman, certain that her own heart has no room for love, not when it's filled with her mission, her purpose. Still, the bond between Scarlett and Rosie is too deep to truly sever, and when Scarlett discovers a way to bring her sister back to her side for good- even if it means destroying Rosie’s happiness—she is forced to make a decision that will change the course of both their lives.

Now I'm lusting not only after As You Wish, but Sisters Red as well. This modern Little Red Riding Hood version sounds completely amazing (I really hate give-away synopsis but surprisingly this makes me even more hyped for the book haha). I like the fact that the concept is strictly kept but everything seems all refreshing. The other sister falling in love with the woodsman? Never saw that one coming. Oh and, it's not a necessary thing to say but this cover IS <3

Go on the journey of revenge with the sisters on June 3rd 2010. A long way to go, I know. Wish I could complain to the publisher : (
