"Vibrant debut novel . . . an utterly original take on the young-adult fantasy."--Entertainment Weekly

"A romantic and unique read bursting with lush atmosphere."--BuzzFeed

"This book is a delight from start to finish. It's everything I adore about the best Korean drama, mixed with a dash of urban fantasy. The chemistry between Miyoung and Jihoon kept me turning the pages into the wee hours of the night. Cho's prose and pacing are crisp, and the world is utterly transportive."--Ren�e Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath & the Dawn

"Full of heart and heat, Wicked Fox is the perfect summer read. If this charming yet emotionally charged novel doesn't win you over with the supernatural mystery or fraught family drama then the sweeping romance will." --Tor.com

"A fun read that should have YA enthusiasts hooked." --Culturess

"This is urban fantasy as readers have not seen it before: steeped in Korean folklore...Fresh and fast paced, weaving together action and romance." --School Library Journal

"For K-drama addicts everywhere, this book is for you! Romance and suspense that will make you cry, cheer, laugh, and swoon...I seriously loved this book! Now, please, somebody make it into a real K-drama!"--Ellen Oh, children's author and We Need Diverse Books co-founder and president

"I fell in love with the world of Wicked Fox...Cho's Miyoung and Jihoon will steal your heart and give it back to you a thousand times fuller. This is a page-turning debut you cannot miss."--Traci Chee, New York Times bestselling author of The Reader series

"Wicked Fox
is a delight from beginning to end. Set against the bustling cityscape of Seoul, this elegant contemporary fantasy explores what it means to be a monster and what we must give up in the pursuit of love, forgiveness, and our truest selves. A triumph!"--Julie C. Dao, author of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns

"In this haunting fantasy romance...Korean folklore comes to life in modern-day Seoul as a supernatural creature and human collide...Cho's debut--driven by anguish, sweet romance, and the need for connection--is a formidable first effort that ends with a promise of further adventures." --Publishers Weekly

"The story is reminiscent of a K-drama with sweet romantic moments, lovable friends, and impossible obstacles ... an addicting read with complex main characters and unexpected twists. This fantasy debut will be eagerly devoured, and readers will clamor for a sequel." --Kirkus Reviews

"With plentiful Korean words in the text to describe the food, culture, clothing, and family dynamics, Cho establishes an authentic setting. . . The current surge of interest in K-pop, K-drama, and Korean film will draw readers to this fantastical romance set in contemporary Seoul." --Booklist

"Reading Wicked Fox was like coming home. A gorgeous contemporary fantasy set in modern Seoul, Cho's compelling debut balances creatures from Korean myths--goblins and immortal foxes--with the everyday lives of teenagers, navigating friendships, family drama, and first love. Suspenseful, romantic, and utterly consuming." --Axie Oh, author of the New Visions Award-winning Rebel Seoul

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.
