Description

One of the most anticipated book of 2019, Wicked Fox is an addictive fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul. Eighteen-year-old Gout MI young 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. But after feeding one full moon, MI young crosses paths with jihoon, a human boy, being attacked by a Goblin deep in the forest. Against her better judgement, she violates the rules of survival to rescue the boy, losing her Fox bead—her gumiho soul—in the process. Jihoon knows MI young is more than just a beautiful girl—he saw her nine tails the night she saved his life. His grandmother used to tell him stories of the gumiho, of their power and the danger they pose to men. He’s drawn to her anyway. When he finds her Fox bead, he does not realize he holds her life in his hands. With murderous forces lurking in the background, MI young and jihoon develop a tenuous friendship that blossoms into something more. But when a young shaman tries to reunite MI young with her bead, the consequences are disastrous and reignite a generations-old feud…forcing MI young to choose between her immortal life and jihoon’s.

About the Author

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.
