I can't wait to see what Adelt aka king clutch will think of next
Volume 2, like the first one, is a shockingly successful blend of "epic fantasy action" and "mystery thriller," and due to the "locked room murder mystery" plot of the first volume, we know almost all the main characters very well, and it's exciting to see them play off of each other as suspicions run high. The primary character focus is given to Mora, the Saint of Mountains, and the character introduced at the end of the first volume, and we learn quite a lot about how Saints fit in this world, what their abilities can do, and what other Saints exist. Mora was, for me, one of the more frustrating characters from the first volume, so i was pleasantly surprised that i ended up liking her so much, and sympathizing with her circumstances, by the end of the volume. Other surprises abound in this volume, so much so that i don't want to reveal much of anything specific in this review! I'll just say that the ending may leave you cursing the author (with a smile on your face the whole time).
Both volumes of Rokka are excellent fantasy literature that i would recommend to just about anyone. Unlike most other light novel series (DanMachi, Arifureta, Realist Hero, Shield Hero), you don't need any kind of familiarity with anime or light novel tropes to tolerate the characters or events. Each character feels like a human being in that world with their own desires and ambitions, more than a simple archetype, and the cast is balanced quite well between male and female. I can't recommend this series enough to anyone who's intrigued by a mix of fantasy and mystery.
