Praise for SWEETLY:
“It is easy to care what happens to these characters, even when readers are left wondering who is on the right side and who is not…will still satisfy readers looking for a thrill.”

Praise for SISTERS RED:
“…It’s the compelling love stories that drive the tale—the sisters’ affection for each other, the first breathless flush of infatuation between Rosie and Silas, and Scarlett’s love of the hunt. Readers of Stephenie Meyer, Donna Jo Napoli, and Shannon Hale will enjoy…”

Praise for SISTERS RED:
“Pearce is on the mark with this modern-day retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Told by the sisters in alternating chapters, this well-written, high-action adventure grabs readers and never lets go.”
School Library Journal (Starred Review)

Praise for TSARINA:
“Romance, adventure, magic and history blend seamlessly into a story that is not just historically sensitive and gloriously thrilling—it’s essential moral reading.”
