Book Review: Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause

About half way through this book I was thinking; "Annette Curtis Klause should sue the creator of that silly ass vampire series for pre-teens." This seemed like the same story only with werewolves instead of vampires. But then things started happening that I didn't see coming. And the author didn't hold back when it came to the graphic violence that should be included in any serious book involving werewolves and/or vampires which are by nature vicious beings. Yet the book is still considered a young adult novel.

This is a story that follows Vivian, a teenage girl whose loneliness drives her to seek a relationship with a human (meat boy). They quickly fall for each other despite disapproval from her pack and his family and friends. When a mutilated body is found, Vivian begins to suspaect that she is the killer. This all leads to a suspense filled climax and a surprising twist.

The writing style was pretty straight forward. Well structured sentences and great pacing kept me interested. This was an all around good read and I'd recommend it to any fan of werewolves or horror in general.

4 out of 5 stars.
