Debut author Kat Cho bursts onto the YA scene with a gripping fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul.
Miyoung is used to being on her own. She’s a gumiho, a mythical fox creature with nine tails who feeds on the energy of human men, so a solitary existence is often necessary. She knows only the company of her demanding and emotionally distant mother. But one night, as Miyoung hunts in the forest by the light of the full moon, she saves a boy named Jihoon from a vicious attack, and what begins to form between the two is a bond unlike any the young gumiho has ever experienced or could have imagined for herself. Jihoon accepts her wholeheartedly, providing Miyoung with a solace and security entirely new to her. But lurking in the shadows are dark forces that want to tear the two apart, and soon the time will come when Miyoung must make an impossible choice between her immortality and Jihoon’s life.
