10/21/2002 Entry: "Annette Curtis Klause's BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE"
Meeting Annette Curtis Klause had me wanting to re-read BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE. But I had to obtain it from the library so that I wouldn't put stress on my newly-autographed hardcover copy. (Collecting is such a sickness.)
If you haven't read BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE, it's about Vivian, a young werewolf who falls in love with a human in her school. She longs to reveal herself to Aiden, but it's strictly forbidden by pack Law and politics. And pack life is becoming very complicated because of a leadership vacuum. Humans are being killed by an unknown werewolf in the pack. Vivian is having strange episodes which lead her to think she might be the killer. Added to this is the fact that Gabriel, the dangerous young werewolf who looks to take over the pack, has become a threatening presence in Vivian's life. Does he want her? Will he kill her anyway if he finds out her secrets? Teenage issues on a monstrous scale. Riveting stuff.
