This week I am waiting on
Wicked Fox (Gumiho, #1) by Kat Cho
Publication Date: June 25th, 2019
A fresh and addictive fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul.
No one in modern-day Seoul believes in the old fables anymore, which makes it the perfect place for Gu Miyoung and her mother to hide in plain sight. Miyoung is a Gumiho, a nine-tailed fox, who must eat the souls of men to survive. She feeds every full moon—eating the souls of men who have committed crimes, but have evaded justice. Her 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 forcing Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon’s.
I saw the cover reveal for this book on Twitter the other day and that was enough to seal the deal for me. However, when I read the premise I realised that this fantasy is one I could definitely love. To start, I’ve never read a fantasy novel set in Seoul before, so that’s very exciting, and the mythology of the nine-tailed fox sounds magical and quirky and a lot of fun. I can’t wait to read this book.
