I realize that Klause wrote her vampire/werewolf series well before Stephenie Meyer wrote her Twilight series, however I couldn’t help but compare the two as I read Blood and Chocolate. With Twilight (which I admittedly read first and perhaps that had something to do with it) I couldn’t put the book down. I wasn’t as into the characters of Blood and Chocolate. The book is good, don’t get me wrong, and it's much better written than the Twilight books are, but I didn’t like it as well as I liked the Twilight books. Maybe I just need to read the first Klause book, The Silver Kiss, to get a more complete background on the characters.
