BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE ANNETTE CURTIS-KLAUSE PDF

Blood and Chocolate is a paranormal romance novel for young adult readers by Annette Curtis Klause. It is set in the contemporary United States. In Klause's novel, the loup-garoux are a separate species from humans and wolves, but with elements of both in behavior and anatomy - referring to themselves as Homo lupus. There are two differing accounts of their origins alluded to in the book; some believe they are descended from a prehistoric breed of canine which absorbed protean matter from a meteorite which enabled them to shape-shift into humans, others that they were a tribe of ancient human hunters blessed by the moon goddess Selene. Most loup-garoux follow the latter account and thus worship Selene as their patron and mother. Loups-garoux are portrayed as glorious beasts who revel in their dual nature, but do not reveal this truth to humans at the risk of violent backlash.

Vivian Gandillon 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 disarray, and she feels lost in the suburbs of Maryland. She longs for a normal life. But what is normal for a werewolf? Then Vivian falls in love with a human, a meat-boy.

Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack. Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would. 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? This … is a weird book for me. I remember having mixed feelings about it even back then. But I have to acknowledge it may just be my taste. There was a lot of pressure, you know? The story flowed very easily, and it felt different than other books I have read.

The characters are fairly simple — they are made mostly of passion and lust and hunger. But Vivian, Aiden, Gabriel each have maybe a handful of facts to give their characters a little background. The others blend together. What more is there to say? It was a book that I enjoyed when I held it in my hands, and forgot about when it was out of sight. Still, I hesitate to recommend it because I see some uncomfortable levels of intimacy and behavior between certain members of the wolf pack.

I liked it. Despite some sentimentality I have for this book, I really thought it would end up on the giveaway pile. What I discovered upon revisiting is that this book was entertaining and made me want to write about werewolves. And I want to keep it. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
