Klause poetically describes the violence and sensuality of the pack lifestyle, creating a hot-blooded heroine who puts the most outrageous riot grrrls to shame. Blood and Chocolate is a masterpiece of adolescent angst wrapped in wolf's clothing, and its lovely, sensuous taste is sure to be sweet on the teenage tongue.

Vivian's not happy. A tragic fire killed her father a year ago, and now her mother (partly out of grief) has started flirting with men half her age. The Five, a group of adolescent boys her age, are completely immature around her and she doesn't have any friends at school. And then there's that problem with being a werewolf. Normally it doesn't bother Vivian. After all, as a member of the loups-garoux, she and her tribe (including the aforementioned mother, Five, and even her dear departed father) keep mostly to themselves. They mingle with humans to some degree, but soon they'll have to find a place outside of civilization where they can be themselves. There's mutiny stirring amongst the pack, however. Without a strong leader factions are struggling to gain control, and no one knows where it will all end. And then Vivian falls in love with a human boy...
The book's a well written fantasy that makes the idea of werewolves just a touch less silly than usual. Vivian is an uncommonly self-assured young lady.Read more ›
Vivian's struggles to live as a "normal" human and lycanthrope, as well as the pleasures and pains of her relationship with Aiden, provide the book with its primary strengths. Vivian is also a fully-developed character, with readers able to know her thoughts. From them, we learn she is strong, vulnerable, sardonic, and in touch with her feelings. Vivian is also worthy of the reader's sympathy, even empathy: "Blood and Chocolate" provided me with the vicarious experience of feeling for Vivian, especially after she reveals her hidden self to Aiden in a scene filled with psychological and sexual symbolism. (Her mounting desire for total acceptance from Aiden reminds me of the words of another "dangerously" sensuous sixteen-year-old from literature and opera, addressed to the severed head of the man she desired: "If you had seen me, you would have loved me.") Of course, this is one one of many scenes that symbolize the perils of adolescence: the angst, insecurity, and desire for acceptance that occur no matter how beautiful one may look, or how confident one may act.Read more ›
I love this book! It took me two hours to read and the complexity of the themes had my heart racing. Vivian is the perfect semblance of beauty, strength, and sensuality. Blood and Chocolate impresses me because Annette makes werewolves seem so tangible. And that being so in touch with their primal needs and actions resides, though repressed, in all of us.
