A Gumiho is a fox, specifically a fox with 9 tails that hunts people and eats their livers. They are demons known in many cultures as monsters that can disguise themselves as beautiful women to seduce and capture their prey. But is it really that simple? Gu Miyong is a Gumiho but she doesn’t rip her victims apart, and she preys upon only the most heinous criminal. She hates that she has to kill to live but such is the life of a Gumiho. She knows humans will never trust her if they ever find out what she truly is, or at least that’s what she has been told. She trusts no one except her mother, has no one that she considers a friend, and wants to keep it that way. Everything changes in an instant when a charming slacker named Jihoon stumbles upon her secret. Cho does a fantastic job of world building. Fans of folklore and the paranormal, romance, and K-Dramas will love this book and its sequel Vicious Spirits.
