Worldwired by Elizabeth Bear

"The men who love war are mostly the ones who have never been in it"

This is quoted near the end of this last part of the trilogy, but I can't find the originator.

This book hits the climax and the resolution of the series -- communication with the aliens, political assassination, the dropping of the world wire, chaos and sacrifice -- and continues the excellent characterization and plot. I stayed up later than I planned to finish it. This book is bloodier than the others, but not unnecessarily. Definitely a good trilogy to read.
