Awesome Fox of Nine Tails Story

Miyoung is a nine tale fox demon and she is a super rad character. She is strong and hard while at the same time she has a soft side. Jihoon is such a lovable character. Together they are perfect. It is a bit of an enemies to lovers thing for them. I will definitely be continuing this series.

Twisty ride

I gobbled this book up and didn't want it to end. I had to force myself to stop reading because sleep is not an option. From the beginning this world grabbed me and took me on a twisty, high-stakes ride. Along the way I met three dimensional characters that popped off the pages. I found a new book boyfriend in Jihoon and rooted for him as he had so much family issues to deal with.

I also found family, friendship, self-acceptance, and a sweet romance. The characters had to learn how to trust others and learn who they could really trust. This made for lots of suspense and plot surprises. I loved the Korean culture, setting, and foods inside. The author tossed unseen twists and paced this debut book perfectly. I can't wait for book 2.

Captivating and Intricate

Wicked Fox by Kat Cho was an automatic five stars from me!!! Though I knew very little about the book going in, I couldn't put it down once I began. The main storyline is a beautiful blend of Korean mythology and modernity. Its focus follows a young gumiho named Miyoung but shamans, ghosts, and even dokkaebi make appearances. Humans, however, play perhaps the second greatest role in the story considering that Miyoung is surrounded by them and even half of one herself. Her love interest, Jihoon, is also human. This love story acts as pretty much the main story line of the novel, and its safe to say that it was absolutely endearing. It was so heart-warming to see the two characters connect and grow together.

However, as fun as Miyoung and Jihoon's romance was, I think my favorite part of the book was the side-relationships. The various friendships Miyoung creates with Jihoon and his friends was developed very slowly and thoughtfully, which I really appreciated. Jihoon's contrasting relationships with his grandma and his mother were probably the highlight of the book for me. They were so complex and intricate in their own ways that each had me in tears at one point or the other. I really appreciate the extra mile the author took to ensure that such relationships maintained significance in the story and for the characters. It's far too often that such relationships are simply pushed aside in romances so seeing them so fully developed makes me so excited! I absolutely cannot wait for the sequel!!!
