Disclaimer: Prisoncorp is the third and final book in the series which began with Orphancorp. Prior to reading Prisoncorp, I had not read the previous two books.

Prisoncorp reads remarkably well as a standalone (though some portions of the book would've certainly had a larger impact had I been familiar with the characters) drop kicking the reader into a harsh and unrelenting women's prison set sometime in the future.

The less than humane living conditions the inmates are subjected to is well artic

The perfect end to the Orphancorp trilogy.

I love this series and this book. The characters are strong, the voice is consistent. I love the cute queer romance and the sense of hope in a scarily realistic dystopian world.

Imagine a bone dry wasteland where the government has completely corporatised the social welfare system, leaving the most vulnerable members of society completely at the mercy of money-hungry corporations. This is the world that Mirii and her friends inhabit. The third installation of her trilogy, Marlee Jane Ward's novella Prisoncorp sees Mirii imprisoned for her earlier attempts to protect her loved ones from the wealthy businesses that run her world. After Orphancorp, Prisoncorp is a brutal, ...more

Prisoncorp being the final chapter for Mirii, I was a little worried from the outset as to whether it would do rest of the series of novellas justice. But honestly, I actually really enjoyed it in its entirety.

Ward manages to keep the reader enthralled regardless of the length of the novel. Although this was only around 150 pages long, it told Mirii's story with precision and grace.

I was so happy with how it ended. All the loose ends were tied up in a neat bow while still taking the reader on a

Oh. Wow. What a trilogy. Marlee Jane Ward has really packed a punch with these books. I have been lost in these for longer than I expected as I didn’t want to leave her world. What could be better than a strong female protagonist, full action, a completely believable world, clever ideas and tight plot? Her language in this is so on point that I found myself thinking it before too long. I’m so glad I waited to read the first two until I had the thir

The perfect end to Marlee Jane Ward’s brilliant Orphancorp trilogy. This series is so original, assured and electric. The fluid, understated way Ward writes about race, sexuality, disability and power is wonderfully modern and filled with care and empathy. The novella is a unique form and this is a perfect example of why it works so well for certain stories. Mirii’s world is a dark and awful place but I’ve loved being in it with her as my guide.

A powerful ending to the Orphancorp trilogy. A dystopian heavily influenced by some people's reality. Well researched and wonderfully written. Marlee is an incredibly insightful author and I'm glad to read her work. ...more

An excellent end to the trilogy, the best book of the three for my money.
Janelle Dazzlepants
DESTROY THE PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! Each of the three books in this trilogy has had such a different tone, but in a way that makes perfect sense. The Prisoncorp is almost a character in and of itself here, and I loved this story of uprising and resilience.

Kinda wish there was a long epilogue though? I need closure.
