Wicked Fox Review

42133479._SX318_Miyoung is an 18 year old with a secret, she is actually half Gumiho; a nine tailed fox that feeds on the energy of men to survive. When she attends a new school in Seoul and meets Jihoon she decides maybe the decisions she’s made before isn’t good enough anymore.

I liked Miyoung, she came across a little cold at the start of the book which contrasted quite nicely with Jihoon who was all smiles and goofiness. I just thought at times she could be a little passive, especially when it came to her mother. I really wanted her to stand up to her and demand the answers she was seeking instead of having to go behind her back with the shaman. 

Jihoon was adorable and very relatable. I really enjoyed the tension between him and Miyoung after the meet again at school. He has quite a traumatic background but doesn’t let that deter him from living ini the moment. He is honest and raw and expresses his feeling quite well throughout the course of the plot. He does undertake quite the journey and has had to go through many difficult situations. His family dynamic is quite complicated but his relationship with his grandmother was so special!

I loved the lore and the legends woven into the storyline. The tales of the previous Gumiho’s and how the correlate back to Miyoung was fascinating. The Korean culture was another factor I really enjoyed reading about. It definitely made the experience more interesting and unique. 

⭐️4/5 It was a rollercoaster ride!
