SORTA LIKE THE FAIRY TALE…BUT NOT

 

Modernized Fairy Tales seem to be everywhere these days: on TV, at the movies (2 Snow Whites!) and in books. I really liked these two and think the writer has a chance to help us all live happily ever after if she will just keep on writing!

SISTERS RED

by Jackson Pearce

After a Fenris, or werewolf, killed their grandmother and almost killed them, sisters Scarlett and Rosie March devote themselves to hunting and killing the beasts that prey on teenaged girls, learning how to lure them with red cloaks and occasionally using the help of their old friend, Silas, the woodsman's son.

SWEETLY

by Jackson Pearce

As a child, Gretchen's twin sister was taken by a witch in the woods. Ever since, Gretchen and her brother, Ansel, have felt the long branches of the witch's forest threatening to make them disappear, too. Years later, when their stepmother casts Gretchen and Ansel out, they find themselves invited to stay with Sophia Kelly, a beautiful and magical candy maker. But Sophia knows all about the witch in the woods and is using her sweets to lure girls to a deadly Chocolate Festival. Is it time for Gretchen and Ansel to stand and fight?
