Main Plot Points:
- Tensions escalate aboard their ship as the Vitros try to maintain order and control over one another.
- Meanwhile, a disaster on Earth diverts their attention and causes the Vitros to further divide their allegiances to each other and to their space mission.
What We Thought:
- This really expanded upon the ground laid out in the first two volumes and was, I think, a much more consistent product.
- The storytelling really flowed, and I didn’t feel as if (perhaps contradictorily) I needed to have read the first two volumes to be comfortable with what was going on. I really enjoyed the main tension of the story arc, and felt the urgency throughout.
- I also feel that Brett Weldele has finally hit his stride here. I could tell who was who more easily than previously, and really enjoyed the sci-fi bits especially.
- No extra materials, alas.
