Product Description

From the Back Cover

I will howl for you, human boy, she thought. I will hunt you in my girl skin, but I'll celebrate as wolf...

Vivian 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 howl for her. It is time for her to find a mate.

But Vivian just feels lonely and lost, longing to be 'normal'. That's when she meets Aiden - a human - and falls in love. But can Aiden ever accept Vivian as she truly is? And will Vivian be fully satisfied with Aiden's comfortable kisses - like chocolate - when she has such a passionate need for more? For kisses with real danger in them - like blood...

I've always been a big fan of the romantic horror genre, it's always held more allure for me than you're average boy meets girl love story. The whole premise of boy meets weregirl is so much more interesting.
The love story isn't some straight forward get together, theres lots of twists and turns that keep you interested, as a reader you're always left on tenterhooks, the author does not let you have one moment of relaxation.
i found myself disappointed at how quickly i read this book, i wanted it to go on for that little bit longer. It certainly kept me happy throughout, if your like your love stories with a little bit more bite this is definitely your read - dont miss out!

When i first read this book, i just couldn't put it down! I was so additive to it and couldn't spend time on revising for my exams..oops! It is excellent for teenagers and it is full of romance and alittle horror.
You would loved to be the characters in Blood and Chocolate particularly Vivian !! She is extremely pretty and how she had to get through to be with someone she likes and likes her too.
This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in romance and fantasy kinds, so buy this book and read it ,you'll find that you couldn't put it down either!!

I love paranormal / fantasy stories so when Blood and Chocolate was recommended, I figured it was right up my street. Although the book was incredibly easy to get into, I found that I just could not gel with the main character, Vivian. She came across as stuck up and much older than her 16 years and it really irked me whenever she referred to someone as girl or boy. She seemed over cocky for someone in her situation.
Having said that, the story itself was excellent. Klause's writing flowed easily and craftily and I would certainly read any other books she has written.

I read this in a single sitting. I just couldn't stop which is weird because, on the face of it, I don't think this is a 5 star book. I am not 100% sure why though... I'd like to give it a 4.5 really.

It's about a girl who is a werewolf (or something close to it) who falls for a normal guy, tells him about herself and then all kinds of chaos breaks loose in the town & her pack because of her actions. I found the writing compelling, and I enjoyed reading the main character, Vivian. She's one of those strong leads I like so much, who doesn't mind telling the world to go to hell. She's very headstrong and not always right, but I like how she asserts herself.

I think this is a really quintessential werewolf book, and I think anyone who is a fan of the genre should read this - there are so many things to like. If you enjoyed the Andrea Cremer Nightshade books, you will love Vivian. She suffers from similar problems to Calla Tor, female in a male wolf's world etc, but her solutions are quite different. It also has plenty in here for fans of The Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater too. The werewolves have very believable wolf behavior, and it was great to see them being quite animalistic.

Final word... I think this is pretty hot for YA, so I wouldn't let anyone younger than a 13 yr old read it, and even then it would depend on the 13yr old. There's a lot of lust going on within!

Having seen the film first I was curious about the book. Well I've satisfied my curiosity and, other than the names and the fact they are wolves; I can report the two bear no resemblance what so ever! Personally I didn't enjoy the book as much as the film, the characters in the book were un appealing and did very little for me. My advice is if you enjoyed the film steer clear of the book and if you liked the book you'll be disappointed with the film.

By Stella TOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
I've bypassed this book quite a few times and it's been overlooked because of one thing....I didn't realise it was about werewolves. Had I known that, I'd have snapped it up long before now. How I missed this one I'll never know.

I was drawn into this within a few pages and the story just grabbed me. It's a story about teen angst and love and decisions and betrayal and loyalty and just generally growing up and coming of age.... but with werewolves. I very easily got caught up with the story of Vivian, who has as many problems, if not more, then your average teen.

This book may be geared towards a young adult audience, but it can definitely be enjoyed by those of us who are young at heart and can still remember their youth. Klause pulls off a sensual story about the supernatural without making it seem cheesy. The characters are believable, the shape shifter culture is well rounded and Vivian's world comes alive on the page.

16 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Scriber_scouse VINE VOICE on 28 July 2002
Format: Paperback
This is a book that I will treasure forever, it manages to be funny, sad, a mystery/romance and horror all at once. Vivien is a 16 year old girl who happens to be a loup garou - a werewolf. Vivien lives with her mother and the rest of their pack hiding in the city where they exist within the human world but are forever apart from it. Vivien breaks this unspoken barrier when she falls in love with Aiden a human boy in her high school and tries unsuccessfully to lead a more normal human life.
Vivien's relationship with Aiden breaks your heart because you KNOW it will end badly, not only does Vivien end up hurt and rejected by the boy she loves but her romance with the human sparks off serious resentment with the Five- the teenage males nearest her age in the Pack. This resentment spirals out of control and endangers the whole Pack's welfare as human bodies begin to pile up, suspicions are raised towards Vivien and she must try to clear her name and find the real killer before the Pack is hunted down by humans once more. The best part about this book is that it deals with werewolves which is very rare in YA horror which normally tends to focus solely on vampires or witches. This werewolf novel is very well written with great characters- particularly Gabriel (hubba hubba!) the 24 year old drifter who much to Vivian's embarassment looks set to become her mother's toy boy. The one liners are very funny and anyone who doesn't laugh out loud at Vivien's dry wit doesn't possess a funny bone- the best line that springs to mind is Rafe's "I got me a new honey", and Vivien's zinger of "yeah who is she when she's concious."
This book is a classic and you really FEEL for poor Vivian who only wants to try and balance a normal life with her werewolf nature.
