Book Review: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho

Book: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho
Genre: YA urban fantasy
Rating: ★ ★ ★ 

A lovely fun fantasy based on the Korean folklore of the gumiho... a nine tailed fox who seduces men and eats their livers! Our girl wants to not be a murder, so she has modified her feedings to just the bad guys... and she doesn't eat their livers, but drains their energy. It's a peaceful way to go and the only way she can survive and still feel okay about things.

Her mom is a very famous gumiho, but she doesn't know who her dad is. She gets help from a shaman girl who provides her with the bad guys. She has just moved to Seoul, since she and her mom don't say in one place long. Al in all, she is not really very happy.

But then this kid, a boy in her new school, gets mixed up in the middle of a skirmish she has with a goblin. And he learns right off what she is, but that doesn't stop him from being massively attracted to her. And his ordinary-ness makes her feel normal. And she likes that.

Well, and so stuff happens during that skirmish that causes her all kinds of problems which is the whole book, her trying to figure this thing out! And things go from bad to worse.

It's great fun and a blast to read about a creature and a tale that is a little different from those we are used to. The romance was fun, the backstories sad, and the action intense. I really enjoyed it!

It ended with an epilogue opening wide the events for a sequel. Here we go!
