Overview

Yona of the Dawn, Vol. 8 by Mizuho Kusanagi

A red-haired princess loses her family and her kingdom… Now she must rise and fight for her throne!

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!

Jaeha, the Green Dragon, joins Yona’s party after their harrowing adventure together in Awa. Now the group must find the Yellow Dragon—the last dragon from the prophecy that Ik-su told Yona! Meanwhile, Su-won visits Chishin Palace and tells General Geun-tae, chief of the Earth Tribe, that he should hold a mock battle and festival. But what could be the true intent behind Su-won’s proposition?

This volume is Soo-Won centric, although it must be noted that the first and last chapters are still about our main squad. But the antagonist of this story, Soo-Won has remained more or less a mystery so far. While Yona and her group have been going around collecting the four dragons, Soo-Won has been rebranding the kingdom. He has a different vision from the pacifist King Il, but he also is not focused on war as earlier thought. The story is about when he arrives at the Earth tribe's manor to visit General Geun-tae, and subtly manipulates him into encouraging his people. Soo-Won may not be a traditional warrior like the General or Hak-Son, but he is sly and knows how to use his charms. This becomes apparent when towards the end, the General realizes that he underestimated him, and thought him to be a weak son of a great General. It is a bit too convenient and simplistic, but I am still interested in how Soo-Won will run the kingdom. Meanwhile, Yona finds the fourth dragon, Zeno (more like he finds them) and now they have to evaluate what they want to do next. They can't very well march right into the capital and the palace, even with the strength of all dragons, and Yona has different priorities on her mind right now. So they retire to Ik-Soo's village to help out the people there for the time being. This volume was a little different from the others, obviously, since it takes us away from the main group and introduces us further to the other main character of the story. Soo-Won's relationship with Hak and Yona cannot be denied or forgotten and he still has a hold on them. It would be interesting to see how it develops further, and what role Yona would play if she ever tries to take back the kingdom. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review from Viz Media LLC, via Edelweiss.
