After eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung, a nine-tailed fox surviving in modern-day Seoul by eating the souls of evil men, kills a murderous goblin to save Jihoon, she is forced to choose between her immortal life and his.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 June #1
Gu Miyoung appears to be an ordinary, if exceptionally beautiful, 18-year-old high-school senior. She appears to be human, too, but she is secretly one of the gumiho, magical nine-tailed foxes who devour the energy of men to survive. As such, she is constantly on the run to cover up her full-moon feedings that result in the deaths of her victims. When Miyoung saves classmate Jihoon from an encounter with a goblin, she breaks all the existing patterns in her life by making friends with this human boy, much to her ferocious mother's disapproval. With plentiful Korean words in the text to describe the food, culture, clothing, and family dynamics, Cho establishes an authentic setting and educates readers not with a glossary but by elegantly and effectively placing words in context. The current surge of interest in K-pop, K-drama, and Korean film will draw readers to this fantastical romance set in contemporary Seoul, and happily, the cliff-hanger ending guarantees a sequel. Grades 8-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
Kat Cho used to hide books under the bathroom sink and then sneak in there to read after bedtime. Her parents pretended not to know. This helped when she decided to write a dinosaur time-travel novel at the tender age of nine. Sadly, that book was not published. She currently lives and works in NYC and spends her free time trying to figure out what kind of puppy to adopt.
