This is an urban fantasy set in modern-day Seoul. The main character is an aloof gumiho, living with an even more aloof and isolating mother. Through a turn of events, she meets a human boy and as the book goes on, lowers her walls to form a true friendship.

This isn’t my typical genre, but I really enjoyed the book. There are a handful of parts that felt a bit juvenile or rushed, which is why I am giving 4 stars rather than 5. Overall, the writing is solid and the author artfully balances character development and plot progression. The descriptions are vivid and realistic, so I was easily able to imagine this story as the plot of a television series.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in YA fantasy, and also recommend it to those who only read non-YA, but are open to venturing to the edges of their genre preferences. ( )

This was such a welcome break from faux-European fantasy that tends to dominate the market! I haven't watched K-dramas, so some of the applicable tropes may come across more obvious to other readers, but I thought this was a great unlikely allies/enemies to lovers story giving a contemporary twist to Korean folklore. The descriptions of food are so spot on, they had me craving things I've never even tried. I really enjoyed seeing how Miyoung's torn loyalties played out, and how she couldn't write off her mother as a monster. The distinction between being motivated by rage and revenge vs protection and love (even when not expressed overtly) was a powerful contrast. Junu was my surprise favorite character, I hope to see more of his roguish charm in future books. ( )
