Kang Su-jin, chief of the Fire Tribe, has been plotting to become the ruler of the Kingdom of Kohka—and now he’s started an uprising by attacking Su-won at Hiryuu Palace! As the armies clash on the battlefield, will Yona and her friends join the fray with so much on the line?!
On Princess Yona's 16th birthday, she's trying to plot a course through her marriage proposals until a coup forces her to flee her castle with a childhood friend, the edgy General Hak. Add in a likable villain she loves and you have a shojo love triangle ready to rumble... but not much rumbling happens. The story's fictitious setting is reminiscent of the fantastic ancient China in the classic reverse harem manga Fushigi Yuugi, but without the humor or the magic. In fact, aside from the eye candy of the costumes, the book is lacking all around: the plot and characters are simple and stale. By the end of this first volume, Yona hasn't developed personal agency or become the warrior the cover suggests. However, what story there is has good pacing and layout, and the art is high quality. There's promise for the future volumes, if Kusanagi (NG Life) can bring the characters to life.
