Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5

Volume: 1. 7. 9.

Goodreads Synopsis:


Kuklo heads to Shiganshina District to test the new model of the Device, while Sharle anxiously awaits his return at Xenophon's workshop. But long after Kuklo’s expected date of return, there is still no sign of him… Meanwhile, an anti-government group carries out a plan in the Industrial City, where Sharle works. Little do they know, Xavi has infiltrated the mission on orders from above.


A lot of this volume is taken up by the underground movement, as they're planning an attack and to overtake the government. Xavi is a clear part in this, but he's also working behind the scenes to get to Sharle.
I will admit that I'm not a fan of Xavi, and I don't trust him. But I do like that he's worried for Sharle, and he had plans to get her to safety before everything blew up when he didn't have all of the information. And when things blow up, he doesn't even bother with formalities and his promised part in the scheme, he goes straight to find her. It makes me more confused about his intentions.
It's the same with Kuklo, of course. As soon as he finds out, he goes on a mission to get back to her.
I do enjoy this series. It's has it's ups and downs, and goes back and forth with each volume. But I'm enjoying it for the most part.
