Book Review: Vicious Spirits by Kat Cho

Ok Seriously! Kat Cho, we need to talk. I think you may have been inside my brain and peaked through what I like in my books. That is the only explanation I could find as to how you could mix up stuff that I love in a story and whip up this book. Seriously I think I may have to look into those trespassing laws in that case. Well, considering after being in my brain, you might need therapy for the rest of your life, I am going to let it go :P. But seriously this had every ingredient I like in a book in the perfect ratio and this series, I mean the two-book till now has been one hell of an adventure. I love LOVE LOVE LOVE it. ( note the CAP SHOUTS) feel my excitement people….!

Vicious Spirits Official Synopsis

As Vicious Spirits begins, Miyoung and Jihoon are picking up the pieces of their broken lives following the deaths of Miyoung’s mother, Yena, and Jihoon’s grandmother. With the support of their friend Somin, and their frenemy, Junu, they might just have a shot at normalcy. But Miyoung is getting sicker and sicker by the day and her friends don’t know how to save her. With few options remaining, Junu has an idea but it might require the ultimate sacrifice and, let’s be honest, Junu isn’t known for his “generosity.” Meanwhile, the events at the end of Wicked Fox have upended the forces that govern life and death and there are supernatural entities lurking in the background that will stop at nothing to right their world.

Vicious Spirits RWAT Take

The reason why I love the book is that it has everything just the way I like it. Romance! but not too angsty or clingy or weepy. Its more like catch me if you can style. Trouble brewing! but not too complicated and twisted that I get headaches figuring it out. Funny! but not forced ones. Light! but not too light that I can’t see the point of the book behind the lightness. Mythology, Folklores and paranormal elements! you can add that as much as you want and I am there and lastly … Kdrama …oooo my god…somebody scrap me out of this floor for I have melted after reading the book

Call it girly! I don’t mind but this book honestly will completely sweep a particular set of the audience like me, whose whole guilty pleasure is this genre. At the same time, I can also see a set of readers who will get massive eye roll headaches…That’s ok …that is why I am warning you. Tread lightly and don’t bad mouth this book just because you found it too “kDrama-ish or cheesy” I Swear I will bring my own concoction of kimchi spice and Joseung Saja (Reaper) to hunt you down.

This book has brought the perfect character to place an entire book on. The character of Somin and Junu has taken the book to a very amazing path. It was so much fun to watch these characters in their full capacity while the story arc simply progressed amazingly


This is a series I have thoroughly enjoyed and solely because it is a quick, light-hearted read, filled with swoon-worthy romance and amazing story developments. It makes for a perfect weekend read yet letting you travel into a completely different world. AND GOD !! somebody, please talk about those covers… AMAZING. Both the book in the series has outdone itself with their covers.
