39 – The Legend of Sun Knight

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I am a holy knight. To be precise, I am the Church of the God of Light’s Sun Knight…in training.

The Church of the God of Light worships and serves the God of Light, and theirs is one of the three largest religions on this continent.

As the whole continent knows, the Church of the God of Light has the Twelve Holy Knights, and each one has his own unique personality and features.

To be the Sun Knight is to have shining golden hair, sky blue eyes, a compassionate nature, and a brilliant smile.

…even the Sun Knight-in-training is no exception.

The 38th generation of the Twelve Holy Knights have completed their term of office, yet the time for the 39th generation to take over is still far in the indefinite future.

The Judgment Knight is brash and easily angered; the Storm Knight and the Leaf Knight are always fighting nonstop, day and night.

Since childhood, the Sun Knight-in-training has watched the others grow from kids into adolescents.

What must he do in order to become comrades, who will fight through thick and thin for each other, with this group of “younger brothers”?

“Benevolent God of Light, may I ask when I will complete my training that has taken more than ten years?”

Final rating: 4.5/5 stars

Adair mumbled, "However, if you want to win against Captain, you do lack one certain characteristic, and that's being despicable... cough, cough, and shameless... cough! In this area, you will probably never win against Captain."
Elaro laughed. "It's true that I can't win against my teacher in that area."

Oh how I wish for more books in this series. There can never be enough of the 38th generation of the Twelve knights, and the 39th generation. But there was just something lacking - I wasn't that much... more>> attached to this generation as I was for the previous one. But overall, I still love those who were present in this book.

Thankfully, Yu Wo said that this will be trilogy, but this book can be read as stand alone too. But it felt incomplete because it was not planned to be actual stand alone... Anyway, I loved the switching of the POVs, recalling the past events (see: how to make Adair into a obedient and loyal Sun's Vice Captain by throwing him down the cliff a lot of times) and the new characters were cute and loveable.

► STORY & CHARACTERS:

Even though the 38th generation were absolutely close friends, this generation is more like a family, with Elaro being the eldest one (23) among Hungri, who is 17 and rest that are around 15. Basically Elaro is everyone's big brother, and Ludia is everyone's big sister!

What was interesting and great was that we finally found out what happened to Awaitsun and the rest (more or less) but there is just this fact that Awaitsun and Alice are waaaaaaaay too busy to maintain their own pack of children.

The relationship dynamic between the Storm (Shuis) and Leaf (Valica) knights, between Hungri and Elaro and others, but it mostly focused on these four this time around.

Shuis is in a way insecure, because he feels estranged from his own family and he found a brother in Elaro, who is also a brother figure to Valica who is an orphan (just like Elaro) and therefore there is this unsaid hate between Valica and Shuis.

As the previous generation of Sun and Judgment knight were, Elaro and Hungri keep each other in check, but this time it's the other way around. This time Elaro is the one who needs to keep rein over Hungri, so he doesn't go overboard with putting his feelings that get in the line of his duty.

And finally, the plot happens in "that" period when Grisia and the rest have to go each 6 months. And then something unexpected happens... an undead appears!

Overall, this was a fun volume, and I can't wait for more of it, honestly.

So a bit of a note from what I gathered who is who...
1. Elaro Sun
2. Shuis Storm
3. Hungri Judgment
4. Valica Leaf
5. Snow Cloud
6. Youg Blaze (????)
7. Valkyrs Metal
8. Judge Earth
9. Absenplum Ice
10. Luke Hell
11. Leo Stone (????)
12. Fey Moon

► OVERALL:

I just can't wait for any news about this series additions. Even short stories would do, but I highty recommend this series.

It does have it's flaws, but everything else makes up for it. But if you are looking for exceptional female lead or secondary character... you won't find them in these books. Only those who pass by in the volumes.

But the humor, feels and story are worth it.

EDIT 02/10/2017: Good to know that Yu Wo is working on the second book as she put some snippets from the first chapters of the second book! Can't wait!

The story about the 39th Sun Knight and his troubles as he tries to fix the relationships between the Holy Knights that serve under him. Really funny, but more serious than the prequel.

Read the prequel first before reading this.

A continuation from Legend of Sun Knight. This time, the Sun Knight position still belong to Grisia, but the main character shifted to Elaro as the Sun-Knight in training. The previous cast barely appear, but still mentioned often enough. Story wise, it has less comedy in it. It focused more on the relation between Elaro and the other 11 holy knight in training. If you like LSK, it's a must read.

It's a cute story less focused on action/magic/knighthood but more slice of life style with different personalities interacting with each other.

Highly recommend reading The Legend of Sun Knight (prequel to this) before this, it's worth it.

This is pretty good. Not a legend as its predecessor, but pretty good and tolerable to me because it has Grisia and the others in it...

One complaint is about Grisia (Surprisingly) and his... ... more>>
Spoiler

wife. CAN YOU F***ING BELIEVE IT?!!! I DON'T ACCEPT THIS BLASPHEMY!!!

[collapse]

The characters are pretty great, but it lacked many things... I don't know, the predecessor is just too amazing at everything and the transition made it feels... Bland.

Let's just say, the new generation's knights were all A-grade characters... Meanwhile the last generation (Grisia and his own band of rowdy unique brothers) were S++ grade characters. Yeah, that's the devastating disparity. But it's entertaining enough... I might be selfish. But I really didn't like how
Spoiler

Grisia actually getting laid and has a freaking daughter in it. This is a F***ing blasphemy and I really want to forget this ever happened and pretended like the sequel never happened.
