Desperate, Jae delves into the ancient arts of metamorphism and uses her growing power in the Spirit World.

I would recommend this novel to anyone that loves YA, urban fantasy, or that wants to read a unique and fun story that introduces the mythos of a fascinating country. The Mirrored Shard by Caitlin Kittredge. You would be hard-pressed to find an extremely traditional Korean talking well about a Japanese, for instance.

The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker. So I will give the romance aspect that. In the novel you will find references to the amazing underground system in Seoul, the palaces,the KTX train,the coffee shops,the food and the vibrant atmosphere of the city. It is just rude, and that’s what this farlley does. She keeps realizing her errors. That in itself is a great lesson.

I really am not! Jan 14, Giovanna rated it liked it Shelves: Awkward storytelling moments undercut the effectiveness of the magic girl plot, which I think YA readers especially young ones would enjoy. Generally speaking, I’d say it worthed all the longing, after all.

Gilded (Gilded, #1) by Christina Farley

I loved this book. It was really interesting to learn about Korean culture and myths, something I’ve never even thought about! To this day, the descendants of Princess Yuhwa are doomed to be captured and enslaved into an unwanted wedding with Haemosu. View all comments.

It didn’t annoy me, but I wasn’t shipping it either. Irresistible and charming, Marc threatens to break the barriers around Jae’s heart.
