More About the Author

Jackson Pearce currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, with a slightly cross-eyed cat and a lot of second-hand furniture. She recently graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in English and a minor in Philosophy.

She auditioned for the circus once, but didn't make it; other jobs she's had include obituaries writer, biker bar waitress, and receptionist.
Jackson began writing when she got angry that the school librarian couldn't tell her of a book that contained a smart girl, horses, baby animals, and magic. Her solution was to write the book herself when she was twelve. Her parents thought it was cute at first, but have grown steadily more concerned for her ever since.

Sisters Red (published in 2010) is Jackson's debut novel in the UK.Her second, Sweetly is published in 2011. Her first novel As You Wish has recieved rave reviews in the US.

i loved this book despite starting off thinking I probably wouldn't. I'd heard a few things to say it was little slow (which it is to start with) and that the main character was very much focused on hunting (which she was) but I don't really think these were faults. I loved how the story started by filling you in with the background giving you time to get properly introduced to the characters. I loved the bond between the two sisters. Scarlett reminded me a little of Buffy the vampire slayer in her drive for the hunt. It is what she is all about and what drives her. I think it takes you right until the end before you really grasp the point of it and click why it is so important. On the other hand I totally understand rosie and how she doesn't want to be labelled and is torn being being loyal to her sister and doing her own thing. I must admit I saw the first of the twists but not the second. Both of those things made the end of the book amazing. I would not have been abl to put it down if I'd tried.
Fab book, brilliant reworking for an old fairy tale. Fingers crossed for a sequel!

Format: Hardcover
The lives of Scarlett and Rosie March changed forever when a strange man called at the house they shared with their grandmother. The man was a Fenris (werewolf) who hungered for human meat, particularly young, female human meat. The attack leaves the girls' grandmother dead and Scarlett horrifically scarred from her efforts to defend her younger sister.

Since then both girls have devoted themselves to learning how to spot, attract and kill the Fenris. However while Scarlett has made it her mission to rid the world of all Fenris, Rosie wants something more from her life - something more normal.

The return of their friend Silas to their neighbourhood coincides with a rise in the number of Fenris attacks in the small Georgia town. They realise that they are looking for a Potential - a young male bearing the Fenris taint but who won't become a Fenris until he makes his first kill. However as they search for the Potential, the bond between the sisters begins to break and soon it's not just their lives that they're fighting for, but their very relationship.

Pearce's second novel is a gripping riff on the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale. Scarlett and Rosie are utterly believable characters - Scarlett in particular with her scarred face is driven by a need to exterminate the Fenris and while she's aware of what they've taken from her and how her appearance affects the way others see her, she is not ashamed of who she is and the bitterness that sometimes manifests does not make her pitiful. Rosie is also an interesting character - her desire for a normal life is well depicted and completely believable and the simple joy she gets from taking classes in drawing and dance really makes her come alive.

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce, Hodder, 2010

I love novels and stories based on fairy stories and I was prepared to love Sisters Red. And the opening chapter, when the fruit salesman turns up on granma's door-step, and you want to shout "No, no! Run, he is not what he seems," to the two little girls playing in the garden is very good... but there were just too many gaping holes in the plot for me to love the rest of it. It began to remind me too much of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but not in a good way. I am prepared to accept the Buffyverse: all sorts of nasty things turn up on the doorsteps of Sunnydale because it's built just above Hell-mouth, and Buffy has to deal with them because the Authorities are either incredulous or too occupied with sacrificing to demons and preparing to manifest as Hell Beasts themselves to do anything about it. But here we are in Ellison, Georgia, real-time. If the Fenris (Pearce's rather specialised werewolves) are such a real and present danger to young girls, then dealing with them on a vigilante basis is irresponsible to say the least. There seems no particular reason why the March sisters (a nod to Louisa May Alcott?) positively collude with the Fenris to keep their existence secret. After all, they are easy enough to identify, with their clan tattoos on their wrists and their inability to stop their teeth and nails becoming suspiciously pointy when they get too near to nubile teenagers. It's not beyond the bounds of possibility that the hunters could persuade the authorities of the reality of the Fenris' existence, so they can embark on a campaign of eradication, or, at the very least, see that the young girls are warned. But if the hunters have to work alone, then why do they have to rely on knives and hatchets instead of guns?

Format: Hardcover
Sisters Red is a contemporary reimagining of the story of Little Red Riding Hood, in which the big Bad Wolf is replaced by a whole species of Fenris - a.k.a. werewolves - who pray on adolescent girls. Unlike the original fairytale, Little Red herself is replaced by Scarlett and Rosie March, deadly teenage sisters who have made it their mission in life to hunt and kill as many Fenris as they can.

Badly scarred by the werewolf attack that left her grandmother dead, Scarlett March is one of the most memorable YA characters I've ever encountered. She's someone who has experienced the worst that the world has to offer and been irreversibly altered as a result. Her scars have become part of her identity, and in shielding her younger sister from the wolf that day she assumed the permanent role of protector. In contrast, Rosie March has the potential to be more than a hunter - to do normal teenage girl things, and to fall in love - but she feels a responsibility to the sister who saved her life and still bears the marks to prove it. The dynamic between the two sisters reaches crisis point following the reappearance of Scarlett's former hunting partner Silas and Rosie's instant attraction to him, which heightens the girls' awareness of their differences and the tension between what they both want from life. Both sisters are portrayed with compassion and subtlety, and after initially bonding mainly with Scarlett I was surprised to find my sympathies divided more equally between them as the story unfolded.

Despite its fairytale roots, Sisters Red is no bedtime story. It's dark and it's fierce, and packed with fight scenes described so unflinchingly that you can practically feel the pain of Fenris teeth slicing through flesh. I'm not usually big on gore, but Sisters Red needs that.
