Manga fantasy adventure fans will be happy to add another book to their growing pile of reads with VIZ Media’s Yona of the Dawn.

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 reels from the shock of witnessing a loved one’s murder and having to fight for her life. With Hak’s help, she flees the palace and struggles to survive while evading her enemy’s forces. But where will this displaced princess go when all the paths before her are uncertain?

“YONA OF THE DAWN is a riveting series that adeptly combines strong lead characters with plenty of action, romance and royal intrigue to delight shojo manga fans as well as adventure lovers,” says Amy Yu, Editor at VIZ Media. “We look forward to fans of the popular anime adaptation as well as new readers joining us on Yona’s journey!”
