Goodreads Synopsis:

TAKE A STAND FOR HUMANITY Kuklo left the walls behind for one reason: To see a Titan for himself, and finally banish the doubts that have dogged him about his own humanity. That mission has been accomplished, but not everything has gone according to plan. Now Kuklo is on the run with the Survey Corps from a 10-meter-class Titan. But it soon becomes clear to Kuklo and Commander Pikale that they have no chance to reach the wall in time. To live, they'll have to fight! 


There is a lot of titan fighting in this volume. Like, half of the volume is Kuklo on the field, fighting the titan, and figuring out a clever way to get back to safety.
It’s intense. And I did not necessarily love it. But it was all right. Some parts of the fighting were a little hard to follow, though.
Then we get back to town, and Sharle deals with some political drama. Kuklo is taken in again, badly, and Sharle is a little helpless as what to do about it. Things are not looking good for them.
This was not my favorite volume, I will say that, but I’m still sticking with it. I’m interested to see where it goes, and I’m definitely frustrated with the politics and the higher ups. They never even try to understand. Annoying, though not surprising.
Hoping the next volume pulls me back in.
