My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While on a quest to find the Four Legendary Dragon Warriors, Yona and her friends meet Gija, the White Dragon. Gija uses his power to detect the other Dragons, but locating the Blue Dragon proves to be more difficult than expected, and the group runs into a string of disasters! 

After the addition of the White Dragon to the squad, they move on to find the next Dragon, Seiryuu, aka the Blue Dragon. Their journey takes them through treacherous lands of the Fire Tribe, where they are set upon by bandits, and we get to see the strength in Ki Ja’s arm, but also see how Hak Son’s prowess measures up alongside a dragon’s. This volume also marks the introduction of Seiryuu, who is a precious cinnamon roll who must be protected at all costs. His story is also vastly different from Ki Ja, with the former reviled in his village, against the reverence that the latter was brought up in. It brings about how power in perceived in the eyes of different people. Also, Yona starts to show more of a spine – though she has protectors, she won’t sit around and wait to be coddled again. Hak and Ki Ja discuss how, despite their presence, she is still learning archery so as to never be helpless again. This manga definitely brought the feels, and did I mention how cute Ao (the squirrel, not the man) is?! Ah, I am so excited for the story further!!
