Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old Jae Hwa Lee is a Korean-American girl with a black belt, a deadly proclivity with steel-tipped arrows, and a chip on her shoulder the size of Korea itself. When her widowed dad uproots her to Seoul from her home in L.A., Jae thinks her biggest challenges will be fitting in to a new school and dealing with her dismissive Korean grandfather. Then she discovers that a Korean demi-god, Haemosu, has been stealing the soul of the oldest daughter of each generation in her family for centuries. And she's next.
But that’s not Jae’s only problem. There's also Marc. Irresistible and charming, Marc threatens to break the barriers around Jae's heart. As the two grow closer, Jae must decide if she can trust him. But Marc has a secret of his own—one that could help Jae overturn the curse on her family for good. It turns out that Jae's been wrong about a lot of things: Her grandfather is her greatest ally, even the tough girl can fall in love, and Korea might just be the home she's always been looking for.

Princess Diaries meets Urban Fantasy

I have read a LOT of urban fantasy & I have yet to read one that is quite so odd & yet really, really good.
The main character starts out super angst-y teenager & even as she is being dragged into a world of Korean mythology (well done & super interesting) she seems to spend at least half her time moping that she isn't normal anymore & being all dramatic...
Weirdly still a great book & a likeable main character although the writing in the beginning is kind of....choppy? It doesn't flow...
I keep thinking of reasons why I shouldn't like it but honestly I really enjoyed it. Not the best book ever but still very much worth reading, if only for the Korean mythology.
