Publisher Comments:

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. He's fascinated by magic, and Vivian longs to reveal herself to him. Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would.

Vivian's divided loyalties are strained further when a brutal murder threatens to expose the pack. 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?

About the Author

Annette Curtis Klause is head of children's services at the Aspen Hill Community Library in Maryland.  Born in Bristol, England, she now lives in Hyattsville, Maryland, with her husband and their cats.

When she was young, Annette's daddy sat her on his lap and told her the plots of the best old horror movies.  This seems to have made a strong impression.

Annette Curtis Klause holds a B.A. in English literature and an M.L.S. from the University of Maryland, College Park, but when excited, she still has a tendency to howl.

Orphan of Darkness, December 8, 2006 (view all comments by Orphan of Darkness)
well this is the book that i was engrossed in 4 years earlier as i commented in on Orphans of Chaos. ths book was nearly as fasinating as oprhans of chaos. Annette became my firs favorite author when i was either 14 or 15. it was the very first book in my life that i acually read more than once. i believed i read it a totol of 4 times. i expect to read Orphans of Chaos either the same amount or more. both books Blood and Chocolate as well as Orphans of Chaos i have recemended to every one i came into contact with. Bood and Chocolate was a stunning book, i never wanted to put it down because i didnt want to wait to see what would happen next. the book had me obsessed for more. the entire plot was amazing! each page suspenceful and awesome. books like these never have a second or third book to continue the magic... it always a one time stand... unless you read it again!
