I really enjoyed this book. It was my first introduction to stories about wherewolves and I really liked it. If you want a story that is filled with action, fantasy, and love this would be a great book for you. I wish they would make a ssequel to it though I think that could go on with the story after the battle scene and make a series of books from it.

He's fascinated by magic, and Vivian longs to reveal herself to him.Â Vivian's divided loyalties are strained further when a brutal murder threatens to expose the pack.Â
I loved this book, it was amazing and captivating. This book kept me on edge and always craving to read more. I wouldÂ recommendÂ this book to people who love romance with a twist.Â
Blood and Chocolate is a classic in it's own right. Well thought out and well rationalised, this book tells the story of average loner Vivian- if by average you mean memeber of a pack of werewolfs, or Loup Garou, hoping to start a new life in a new town. Vivian loves the change, lives for the run, the freedom of becoming her true self. But when she meets offbeat poet Aiden, her life changes forever. Vivian is torn between protecting her pack, and possibly becoming the head bitch with Gabriel, and her love for the human Aiden. Highly recomended. I have read this book more then any other book I have ever read- and got my sister hooked on it as well. Beautiful, haunting, curageous, and witty, this book has everything a girl could want. Romance, action, suspence, mystery. One of those rare finds that will have you hooked and wanting more.
Blood and Chocolate is a book about a teenage girl named Vivian who is part wearwolf. She is a painter and goes to high school liek any other teenage girl. When she publishes one of her paintings in the school newspaper a peom next to her picture catches her eye. It is about wearwolves. This immediately sparks her curiosity. She sets out to find the guy who wrote the poem. She finds the author to be a guy named Aiden. She also finds that Aiden is different from other guys. He is intruged by everything supernatural. But when Vivian starts dating him the clan gets suspicious. It is considered a betrayel to date a human. So Vivian is forced to chose...her clan, or the guy she now loves.
The book starts out with a description from the main character Vivian, a sixteen year old werwolf. She explains about her father, the old leader of the pack, and the group called the Five. The Five consist of Rafe, Finn, Willem, Ulf, and Gregory.
They are the only pack members of Vivian's age and their group used to include another boy called Axel. In their old town, the Five started to become more feral, using their wolf forms to scare humans. Vivian was afraid they might betray the pack's secret, but in the end it was Axel who lost control.
Axel killed a human girl and someone saw him change back from his wolf form to human after he did it. When Axel was in prison, the Five killed another human to make it look like the "real" killer was still loose, and he was released. Vivian's father killed Axel for endangering the pack, but she pleaded with him to let the Five live. Not long after, a group of suspicious neighbors set fire to the pack's house.
Now a year later, Vivian starts high school in the new town, where she has no friends because of her reserved and secretive nature. Many girls she attends school with find her intimidating and are jealous of her beauty. To find out the rest you need to read the book....
I love this book. LOVE it. Annette Curtis Klause's teenagers are bad, for once, instead of goody two-shoes. She writes very well about the confusion in between love and lust and you could practically think she's a werewolf by the way she writes about them.
The plot toward the end is very surprising, but in a very good way.
This was a really great book i loved it so much. it was about a girl who is a warewolf and she never really had human friends but one day she meets a human boy who is not like the other boys she knows his not like the other warewolf boys. But things goes wrong when they find a human dead and the pack might have to move again
Vivian is a beautiful, self-assured 16-year-old werewolf girl. After a tragic fire strikes the lives of her pack in West Virginia, the remnants of the group move to a city in Maryland temporarily. Vivian finds it hard to make friends; everyone is intimidated by her beauty and self-confidence. Meanwhile, shes lonelier than ever because shes starting to feel that her old werewolf friends are becoming immature and dangerous, while her mother Esme flirts too much with younger men ever since her husbands death in the fire.
Then Vivian meets Aiden. Hes poetic, sensitive, gentle&and a human, a meat-boy. Still, Vivian finds herself falling for him. Her family and friends dont approve of her playing with her food, but Vivian is certain that she and Aiden are wonderful together, and that maybe, someday, she can reveal to him what she really is.
Meanwhile, the pack is uneasy because they must choose a new leader. The strongest candidate is Gabriel, a powerful and dangerous 24-year-old who seems intent on making Vivian his mate, no matter how much she resists him. But Vivian barely has time to think about him. Things with Aiden have turned bad, and she thinks she is becoming a danger to her pack. How far will she go to protect the lives of the ones she loves?
BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE is exciting and unusual; it doesnt let down for even one page. All of the characters are multifaceted and complex, which I love. Readers of all ages and genders will be able to appreciate this book, which has a little bit of everything for everyone.
THE SUMMARY: Vivian Gandillon is a beautiful and strong sixteen-year-old werewolf, but the same cant be said for her pack. After her fathers, the old leaders, death a year ago, the pack still remains leaderless and confused. The humans at her school avoid her, and she longs for friends to talk to. Then, she met and fell for Aiden, a kind and gentle human boy who longs for magic and the unknown. Perhaps he is someone who can love her for who she is.
