One person found this helpful. The world created for this book is rich and highly original. People and animals live in hives and have a collective awareness. The social implications for the colonists create a number of conflicting and dangerous situations.
The hero and the heroine of the first two books are still front and center, but some time has passed, and their relationship has shifted. I wanted more for the hero and heroine. I found the ending too logical and bittersweet, although it will satisfy most readers. I must give a warning to eager romantics that this is in no way a romance fullfilling the promise that no matter what, the hero and heroine will end up together happily ever after. If it were a romance, I would expect a fourth book, where the artificial intelligence entity would return and make everything right again.
But maybe that's just me. I'm fiercely partial to satisfying endings There's a problem loading this menu right now.

Apr 26, Elsi rated it really liked it Shelves: Third novel in Lichtenberg's Dushau trilogy. Outreach concludes the adventures of Krinata, a 33 year old human researcher who has assisted Jindigar, an Duschau outcast, to escape from the rapidly declining empire of the Allegiency empire.
After picking Farfetch the middle book in the trilogy from a bookbox, I immediately set out to swap for Dushau the first book and Outreach so I'd have the entire series. At the end of Farfetch , Jindigar has managed to constitute a functioning oliat from six Third novel in Lichtenberg's Dushau trilogy. At the end of Farfetch , Jindigar has managed to constitute a functioning oliat from six Duschau and Krinata. With the human in the telepathically linked group, the oliat is fragile and has yet to achieve a smoothly function rapport.
But, they've managed to convince the nearby natives that the multi-species colony of escapees from the Allegiancy empire is a new type of hive, thus allowing the colonists to co-exist with the natives. But its a precarious truce at best.
Now the time has come to disband the oliat as most of its Duschau members are quickly approaching Renewal, a biological change that occurs every years restoring youth and fertility, but suppressing the telepathic ability to join in the oliat. Native swarms become confused by the lack of cohesion in the oliat and attack the colony -- preventing the oliat from successfully dissolving their telepathic linkages.
It's up to Jindigar and Krinata to come up with a solution that will preserve the sanity and even lives of the oliat's members and also forge a permanent acceptance of the colony by the native species.
