Goodreads Synopsis:

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!
Yona finally meets Jaeha, the Green Dragon. Unfortunately, Jaeha has no desire to follow her on her quest! Yona offers to help Jaeha and his fellow pirates, so Captain Gi-Gan challenges her with a perilous quest to test her courage. Will Yona be able to pick the Senju Herbs from the steep cliff face of the Misty Cape?"


We get the pirate plot line in this volume. I must admit, after seeing the anime, this plot seems long and not that interesting to me, surprisingly.
Yona meets the green dragon, and the group gets to meet his gang of pirates. They're all rather nice, and I do like the old woman. It seems like she's going to be a good influence on Yona, and I like that—it could definitely be good for her.
I do like the green dragon, but he's not my favorite. He's rather cocky and flirty, and I think that him and Yona could have a good relationship, especially since it seems like she doesn't take him seriously.
Near the end of the volume, Yona and Yun are planning to take over another ship, and it's a bit rough. I'm really hoping to see Yona take charge, show them up and get fierce. I seriously love seeing her get pissed, and I want it to happen.
On the other hand, it's nice to see the others team together to protect her. They all really care for Yona, and they understand the importance of keeping her safe, and I like seeing that. I think it's especially important, since we know that Yona would do anything to keep them safe in return.
I cannot get enough of this series, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next one.
