A new trend in fantasy fiction (which is long overdue and very much appreciated) is the departure from European based mythology to cultures that have not been explored in mainstream publishing as much as they should. Therefore, seeing a book revolving around Korean mythology definitely caught my eye, for it is something I haven't seen come out of mainstream publishing. Right from the first line, "Gu Miyoung’S relationship with the moon was complicated" had me sucked in to this breathtaking fantasy. I love the idea of the main character, this creature that prays on evil men's energy. Definitely think this is a fascinating read.
