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 and her friends have taken to calling themselves bandits and have been protecting Fire Tribe villages from cruel government officials. Meanwhile, Kang Tae-jun, the Fire Tribe chief's second son, goes to Katan Village with orders to eliminate the bandits there. He still believes that he's killed Yona--but suddenly, he hears her voice! What will happen when they come face-to-face again?


Taejun believes he heard Yona, and now he's obsessed. He needs to find out if she's alive, and then he needs to impress her and get her forgiveness, and he will do anything he can to get it. He's a bit crazy with his obsession, and it's honestly hard to tell whether this is good or creepy or what. The way that Yona handles it is quite impressive, though.
It's really nice to see what influence Yona has, and what she can get people to do, without using any force or threats.
It looks like the story will be going in another direction in the next volume, and I'm excited. I love this series so very much, and I can't wait to see what happens next.
