Blood and Chocolate-Annette Curtis Klause @ 3:51 PM



Synopsis (from back of book):

Vivian Gandillion relishes the change, the sweet, fierce ache that carries her from girl to wolf. At sixteen, she is beautiful and strong, and all the young wolves are on her tail. But Vivian still grieves for her dead father; her pack remains leaderless and in dissarray, and she feels lost in the suburbs of Maryland. She longs for a normal life. But what is normal for a werewolf?

The Vivian falls in love with a human, a meat-boy. Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack. He's fascinated by magic, and Vivian longs to reveal herself to him. Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would.

Vivian's divided loyalties are strained further when a brutal murder threatens to expose the pack. Moving between two worlds, she does not seem to belong in either. What is she really-human or beast? Which tastes sweeter-blood or chocolate?

Review:

Description in one word: Interesting

I was told to read this book by my aunt, and, because she has very good taste in books, I loved it, and am thankful to her for recommending it. Vivian's feelings and the way she thinks is realistic (for the most part), and the events that occur throughout the book are suspensful at some parts, yet romantic at others. Througout the majority of the book, I felt sad when Vivian felt sad, happy when Vivian was happy, and I could almost always feel her emotions within me.

After I read the Twilight saga, I was looking for fantasy books to read, and when I discovered that this book was about werewolves, I really wanted to read it. The idea of the book was somewhat extraordinary, but I've heard some like it before. Of course the plot to this book was like no other werewolf book out there, and it had it's particular uniqueness.

Blood and Chocolate was a novel that was about the hardships of a werewolf finding love, the fight of the pack for a new leader, and the disasters of a threat to reveal the pack.

I recommend this book to all of you readers out there that enjoy books about werewolves, and some romance. It was not particularly predictable, like many other books I have read.
