Crowning Moments of Awesome, FOR EVERYONE
Not to give the ending away, so this sentence is your spoiler warning. This is the hardest earned happy ending that was earned. They were chased around the galaxy, abused by older races, bullied by their peers, lied to by libraries, and adopting some friends that they had to protect or see them enslaved by others. Then at the end, they finally get to a place where they could have been ok, but they have to fight another battle.
DAVID BRIN just let someone, anyone be happy! I don't care who you choose, but just give someone a nice comfortable place to ride off into the sunset.

Finally, something interesting happens.
The first two books in this trilogy set the stage for this installment, but the story elements that contribute to that effort are buried under boring manusia. You could easily distill out all of that unnecessary background development and get one book a third as long as either of the first two books.
Overall I really liked this book, except for one massive plot hole: What happened to Jillian's husband and his crew? This really bugs me.
