“…an addicting read with complex main characters and unexpected twists. This fantasy debut will be eagerly devoured, and readers will clamor for a sequel.” —Kirkus Review
“…haunting fantasy romance from debut author Cho…driven by anguish, sweet romance, and the need for connection—is a formidable first effort.” —Publisher’s Weekly Review
A fresh and addictive fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul.
Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret–she’s a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt.
Miyoung’s life is upended when she kills a dokkaebi, a murderous goblin, in the forest just to save the life of a human boy. But after Miyoung saves Jihoon’s life, the two develop a tenuous friendship that blooms into romance, setting them down a path that will soon force Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon’s.
