This story was awesome. The way these girls fight has me wanting to join them. They totally kick-butt. Pulling out knifes here, slashing them there….. wow. The story is action pack and captivating from the very beginning. As you read the story you become engrossed in it watching and taking every step with the characters. The love connection was one I did not see coming, but a great asset to the story.
This was easy, exciting read. I would totally recommend that you read this.If you like Little Red Riding Hood on with two sisters ninjas then read this. Jackson Pearce delivers a haunted, heart-wrenching fairy tale with great action, a strong sisterly bond and of course a romance you can’t resist.
