Bear’s Jacob’s Ladder trilogy finale is a stirring and satisfying story, one that wraps up the story of the generation ship, while also being a book about what it means to be human. The two main characters have wonderful narrative voices and they help propel the tale to its surprising conclusion.
After a thousand years, the generation ship Jacob’s Ladder is at its final destination: a solar system with a planet they call Grail. But to the crew’s surprise, the planet is already populated by humans — and these humans are leery of sharing their home with beings they barely consider human anymore. Their leader wishes to negotiate a peaceful resolution, but events engineered by his right-minded colleagues may make that impossible. (SPECTRA, Mar., 352 pp., $7.99)
