Blood and chocolate
Annette Curtis Klause
Teen Fiction KLAUSE

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

When a 16-year-old werewolf falls in love with a human, she begins to live uncomfortably between two worlds. Klause propels her bloodthirsty tale with "darkly sexy prose and suspenseful storytelling," said PW. Ages 14-up. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Vivian is a hot-blooded, teenaged werewolf, torn between the sweetness of her "meat boy" Aiden and the heat of Gabriel, the new leader of their pack of loups garoux. Why It Is Great: Ten years before Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, Klause made readers swoon with her tales of teen vampires and werewolves in love. Her first novel, The Silver Kiss (1992), used vampires as a metaphor for death and grief. Lovely stuff. Why It Is for Us: Blood and Chocolate is, on one level, an unironic feminist manifesto. With her sexual self-confidence and sensual description of werewolf physicality, Vivian is the anti-Bella some Twilight fans are looking for. (c) Copyright 2010.
