Goodreads Synopsis:


Erwin’s political enemies have hired Levi and his crew to take back some incriminating documents. Their reward: the right to live a proud life above ground, in the royal capital. But deep in Titan territory, it’s going to be tough to break formation and steal from a squad leader, and Levi still insists on killing the man who humiliated him after the mission is complete. Of course, beyond the walls anything can happen, and a sudden change in Levi’s fortunes will force him to face the greatest regret in his life…



First of all: color pages! Of Levi! They’re so pretty!
Now, we all knew that this was going to end badly, right? I mean, of course. It sucks, but it happened. Poor Levi, who has to live with it.
We got to see Levi be his awesome self some more, who kicks all the titan ass. The plot with Erwin wraps up, and I honestly didn’t really care about that. Erwin never really stood out to me, and he still doesn’t.
We saw a little bit of Hange in this book! Yay! Now that’s the real interesting story, in my opinion—how Hange and Levi got so close. Hange is such an interesting character, and has such an obvious relationship to Levi. I wanted more of that, but oh well.
Also, in regards to the side story at the end, am I the only one who loves Levi cleaning in an apron while glaring? I think he looks so charming like that, and I smile every time I see it.
A very interesting, though sad, spin-off story. Definitely worth picking up if you like Levi and/or Erwin. Totally worth it.
