Vicious Spirits Book Review!!

Yo helloo !!!!

I JUST finished reading Vicious spirits. The reason this blog might go up a little late is because I was planning to fully read it and then review it.



It was probably my most anticipated book after I read Wicked fox. But then somehow I forgot about it and it then suddenly appeared on my amazon home page. So I HAD to buy it

K-Drama In A Book || Dokkaebi: Vicious Spirits by Kat Cho [Book Review] –  bookieecookiee

As in short, this book is about the aftermath of Junu’s Halmeoni (Grandmother) and Yena (Miyoung’s mother) death. Both Jihoon and Miyong are grieving. This leaves SOMIN to get close to the mischievous and mysterious dokkaebi JUNU. A lot of things happen. But a bigger problem is upfront. Somin finds that she can see spirits and only one thing can fix it, but it has gone down along with the dead……………


So anyways this is the sequel to the oh so famous Wicked fox. This book actually went into shadows cause I didn’t hear a lot of buzz around this one as much as its prequel.


I liked this one BETTER. It is quite a common pattern where people like the sequel more but trust me, although the first one was a BLAST, this was an EXPLOSION.

The main reason was the main lead swap

In this book, the main lead position was taken over by Junu (the extremely handsome, crafty dokkaebi) and Somin (Jihoon’s Bestest friend, almost like a sister)

I already found these two characters interesting in the last book. But they couldn’t get the limelight. So in this book, the main being these two, it was more interesting and a lot of unexpected things were happening one by one

It has the K-Drama vibe to it so YES, some things ARE predictable. But the small unexpected details is what makes a story interesting

One more thing I really like about Kat Cho’s writing is that she always leaves us with a cliff-hanger at the end of every chapter. This makes me finish the book within a day itself!!

SO coming back to talking about the characters, I believe if the 2nd book was told from Miyoung and Jihoon, I honestly would have found it boring. Miyoung throughout this series had a stagnant mood which, although is one of the main key points of her character, gets a little boring to read if continuously presented.

So the hot headed, short tempered, bubbly Somin was a GREAT change. And Junu…


I actually LIKE that character!! I was getting a little irritated whenever he was mentioned in the first book. but honestly, he was such a fun character to read. This series is more on the fast-paced side, but still, the character development was slow and fun.
