Invisible Kingdom, Volume 3: In Other Worlds: 04/14/22
Invisible Kingdom, Volume 3: In Other Worlds by G. Willow Wilson is the conclusion to the series. A third party has involved themselves in the events begun in Walking the Path (2019). Will they bring the revolution or something even worse?
The four sides to this intergalactic battle are the delivery ship crew, the evil corporation, the Nones and a splinter group called the Siblings run by a man who looks a lot like Glossaryck from Star vs the Forces of Evil.
With all the attempts at subterfuge and drama, there really aren't many surprises in this concluding volume. Technology aka the algorithm is evil. The people working for it are evil. The self proclaimed peace loving leader of the splinter group is, of course, evil, and even more maniacal than the corporation. The nuns are the lesser of all the evils and might actually have some good ones. And the delivery ship is our plucky mismatched team of heroes. Just to make things all the tidier, it has an HEA.
It has all the same themes as Ascender. And frankly it annoys me in many of the same ways. The two things it has going for it over the Lemire comic: it's a short series and each of the books is faster paced.
