Interesting follow-up to Volume 2 – more machinations and revelations

Invisible Republic Volume 3 - Gabriel Hardman, Corinna Sara Bechko

Following on from Volume 2, this volume deals with more of the aftermath of Maia's journal and meeting hazards along the way while flashbacks tell us about Maia's history in this science fiction story about a totalitarian regime on Asan's moon (called Maidstone or Avalon depending on the era), formerly run by Maia's former associate, Arthur. The plot gets quite complicated as it is difficult to know who to trust and no character emerges as hugely sympathetic. Although interesting and well-told, it's hard work in the digital edition (see below). I do get annoyed at stories which chop and change from flashback to present day every few pages: it destroys continuity and is not really necessary. It happens every couple of pages which is tiring. The story will continue in a fourth volume and it is worth a look, especially if you've more patience than I have.
