Princess Yona lives an ideal life as the only princess of her kingdom. Doted on by her father, the king, and protected by her faithful guard Hak, she cherishes the time spent with the man she loves, Su-won. But everything changes on her 16th birthday when tragedy strikes her family!
Hak confesses his feelings to Yona, but how will Yona react in reponse? Later, Zeno suggests heading to Kuuto and getting closer to Hiryuu Palace so that the Four Dragons can heal their wounds. But what will they do when a Kai Empire army attacks the Fire Tribe?” (Goodreads)
Sadly, I got declined for this on Netgalley so I had to wait until it was published and then buy myself a copy. It was definitely worth the wait though, and at least I started collecting the series now!
This volume starts off where the last ended. What happened between certain people causes some tension between them but I liked that the one who confessed didn’t take it back and try to run from his feelings. There is hope for them afterall!
Although this isn’t as action packed as some of the other volumes, there is still fighting and it is always exciting to read. This series also always has me laughing, being said, or just so happy and this volume was no exception! It’s nice to get a lighter one between all of the chaos.
Due to the ending, I am curious what Su-won is thinking. As the love for Yona grows among the people, his followers are getting kind of antsy and I just feel like something awful is going to happen to her. I really hope not but anything is possible. I still don’t know how I feel about him either. His feelings are kind of aloof and it’s really hard to read him.
Overall, I thought it was another great volume and I am definitely looking forward to the next!
