Hybrids - Robert J. Sawyer Tidy ending with a double wedding, but it's safe to say that Sawyer has thoroughly exhausted what he could offer based on this premise by the third volume in the trilogy.

Everyone in these novels seems to use extremely short and simple declarative sentences, even when they aren't trying to communicate across a language and species barrier. I have no idea if this is a deliberate stylistic choice and what if anything it means, but I suppose one might try them out on a reluctant reader or an ESL SFF fan. I observed that I blew through them at approximately twice my normal reading speed for recreational prose reading.
