Goodreads Synopsis:

The Ordinary Peace
The Quincy invaders, led by Yhwach, continue their march through the Soul Society's royal palace. Yhwach's goal is to take down the Soul King and destroy the Soul Society once and for all. But Ichigo and his allies have a secret weapon that could turn the battle in their favor.


I have clearly not been following this series. I don't know about 90% of the characters that we see here, and I have no idea what it going on with the plot line.
So, Ichigo and his group are fighting Yhwach, who is connected to Ichigo and controlling him, without Ichigo even being aware. At the same time, there's a group, I believe on Ichigo's side, who are being affected by this fight with resulting earthquakes. Then there's another group, who is releasing some guy that Ichigo previously fought and locked up. And in the midst, I think we figure out where Uryu has been for however long he's been missing?
It's very complicated, and messy, and constantly going back and forth. And while I have very little idea what all of this is really about, or who any of these people are, it was a little interesting to read. Or at least, it wasn't boring to follow.
I'm definitely lost on this series, though, overall.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
