Vertical has recently announcedÂ the following light novel licenses:
- Attack on Titan: Before the Fall — Kyklo
- Attack on Titan: The Harsh Mistress of the City
Update from Vertical:
I take this to meanÂ volume 2 and 3 of Attack on Titan: Before the FallÂ (which tells the story of a character named Kyklo) will be released next year as an omnibus in late spring or early summer, and then the two volumes that make upÂ Attack on Titan: The Harsh Mistress of the City will later be released as an omnibus in the fall. It appears that at the moment only the first volume of The Harsh Mistress of the CityÂ is available in Japan (released justÂ this past August).

He also seems to grow unnaturally fast. Named Kyukuro, he parts himself from his past/upbringing and gambles on the fate of humanity by enlisting in the scouting legion.
Attack on Titan: The Harsh Mistress of the City Synopsis:
The future that was taken for granted was broken by the attack of the Titans. Wall Maria was pierced, and even in the Quinta District where Mathias and his allies live, Titans appear. Due to this, the line of supplies is cut off from the country, and the citizens begin to panic. Rita, a soldier who had joined the brigade of occupation troops, tries to protect the town that has fallen into chaos, but due to the forceful methods the brigade put into action using actual Titans, the entire city becomes afraid. In order to meet up with Rita, Mathias takes the helping hands of a band of thieves…
The first volume of Attack on Titan: Before the Fall was released in English last month. You can read its entry for it here on this website.
