From Titania Scanlations:
Yona is the sole princess of the kingdom, living the luxurious and carefree life as a princess should. She has it all: the finest clothes and cosmetics, the most divine sweets, a loving emperor as a father, and the hottest cousin crush, Soo-won, anyone could ever hope to have. Now, if only her bodyguard, Son Hak, wasn't so annoying to her and her hair wasn't so red.
But her nearly perfect world quickly shatters as the man she loves, Soo-won, murders her father and the path to his ascension to the throne is assured. Son Hak escapes with Yona, and they lead a life on the run from that point on.

VERY VERY VERY VERY RECOMMENDED!!
Akatsuki no Yona is one of the best manga you'd ever read,,I got hooked in it from the very first chapters,,the story is Awesome,,the art is amazing,,the developement is very good,,the pace is also natural and decent not too fast and not so slow,,but what really amazes me is main character's (Yona) developement,,,from a weak spoiled princess to strong willed powerful girl,,and also her childhood friend (Hak) is so so cool and strong,,,,and the dragons are very amazing,,,so what really distinguish this manga is that every character has its own personality and look (unlike those mangas where u dont even know who the person is!!) and the main character developement (also unlike these mangas where the main character is always crying and waiting to be saved) so trust me on this,,READ THIS MANGA AND YOU WILL JUST LOVE IT!!!!!
i love this
i like the weak to strong part of the main character she is thrown from a world of luxury to a world of the common people or worse since she is being persued she doesnt complain and tries her best to become strong the Hak, her choldhood friend and bodyguard is sooo cool, strong and likes to see her struggle on her own the only thing i hope for is that she doesnt forgive her first love, Soo Won that killed her own father!!! neverth less i love this story and highly recommend it
AWESOME is an Understatement
...for this manga
I really really love all the characters, and the best part of this manga is you see Characters EVOLVE especially the Princess who has gone a remarkable Character Transformation from the beginning uptil now and so has the other side characters namely Seiryuu and Kija
The author has created a nice little Fantasy World add sweet Romance to it coupled with epic action and you get this AWESOME MANGA
Enjoyable (may contain tiny spoilers)
I really like this manga~ the heroine isn't all that weak you know, she is a PRINCESS. How many princesses do you know that can kick butt? Not many right? She is suppose to be spoiled. Crying after the death of her father is reasonable, in addition her CRUSH+Family member killed him, that's a shocker, of course she would be in disbelief. Imagine your dad/mom getting killed by your sibling or your cousin, not to mention the person you like. She grows into a very likable character, she is smart and intelligent. As you read more, it'll get better. So give it a shot one more time for the peeps who dropped this.
I love this series because I find the story have a good potential and the main chara is not annoying like usual shoujo manga I'm having a feeling that this series going to be a quite long one... may be over 20, because so far it has quite slow pace... and I have another strong feeling that Hak might be one of the dragon too.. ah, I cant wait to read it through the end >.<
...you see your dad getting killed in front of your eyes by the love of your life.
I don't get that "she is so weak cause she cries after that"-hype... I get it, it's fiction, but I still prefer a realistic character development. Everyone but the most seasoned and jaded human being would break down after that.
And if you mean she is too naive and bodily weak - that will change.
I really like this series, if you like fantasy, adventure, reverse harem, bishies and romance plus a (future) strong female lead paired with an awesome plot and characters with depth (even the "villain"), this is for you.

Show some patience
Yes, it starts of with a cliche plot of a spoilt princess with the shoujo personality. But the character DEVELOPS. That's why this is a good manga. If you start out with someone who's already perfect to begin with there won't be any room for character development and what's the fun in that? I admire this girl precisely because she tries hard to break out of her upbringing and she actually GROWS UP. Give the girl some credit, she is weak, but she's not weak minded. It's impressive in how much she actually changes. Look, if you're one of those people who gives judgement within the frist couple of chapters, then leave, and don't read it. But I'll have you know you're missing out on one of the best character developing plots in manga.
Please Stick To This!
I've been reading the Chinese raws, and the development gets better and better! (It's currently up to Chapter 41). The female lead starts out relatively weak, but she DEF gets stronger towards the end. The development of the characters are great, and some moments are really funny and some moments are heart wrenching. Either way, please don't drop this manga, it's worth the wait and read!
I have read Kusanagi-sensei's other works, and I have to say this is my favorite so far.
Although the story started out weak, I thoroughly enjoyed the development of all of the characters. The manga itself is not fast paced, and the beginning was slow, but that is how it captures Yona's determination and recovery from the tragic incident. The art I have to say is definitely above average, especially in shoujo manga standards as I think it captures more than just the big kawaii eyes of the lead. Yona is actually very strong, and even if she cries, she doesn't rely on the other male leads to solve everything for her while she hides behind them.
This manga is also more than just romance because of the adventurous elements. I am a big sucker for traditional, fantasy, cultural, and historical settings, so this manga was really perfect for me.
Overall, I think this manga is so far, wonderful! It is refreshing and different, definitely give it a try before giving up! The female lead will definitely grow a lot :>
Not the Best
I gave this series until chapter 6 and I still didn't find it interesting. It's just about a spoiled princess who loses her dad and she seeks revenge against the usurper. It's totally predictable and cliche.
