Just finished Probability Space by Nancy Kress, the third book in a trilogy, following Probability Moon and Probability Sun.

Aside from the silly titles, these are all excellent books. One nice thing about them is that they are all stand alone books - each one is a complete story with no cliff-hanger endings. The third one is a little less stand alone and is my least favourite. The first two are centered around the characters dealing with a strange new culture and trying to figure out what is causing it's unusual features. Probability Space deals with the consequences of what happens in the first two books and wraps up the over-arching plot line. It feels more like a standard "space opera" without the cultural exploration angle and suffers because of it.
