Clearing Up the Confusion
Volume One: 'Another War' (Une Autre Guerre)
According the badly translated French-to-English by Google, the fist volume of Free Forever is called 'Another War' and tells the story of Marygay Potter and her mission Aleph-10, the end of the war, and the galaxy being divided among the two cloned species, the Taurans and the Humans. This leaves out the remains of the non-cloned humans, who feel as alien as the Taurans did. Now, the remains of the non-cloned humans, isolated on Medius (Middle Finger in the books) attempt to find a new home where they can breed in the old ways...the fun ways.
Volume Two: 'Exodus' (Exode)
The Eternal War is over, and the hard peace is in effect. To make friends with the Taurans, and avoid another interstellar war, the Taurans want us to adopt their breeding habits, meaning clones and form a new species called 'man' and are attempting to make an hegemony with the aliens through genetics. With soldiers that served in the Eternal War coming back, and composed of different eras of humans, the terms of the peace accords with the alien-clones render these people has genetic marooned, and are isolated on the planet Medius (called Middle Finger in the books). Some will be used for genetic stock, others will be modified and allowed to join the cloned ranks of the new humanity, but the bulk will be sterilized. These remains of the old humanity, who are military trained, decide to take a ship by force and head out to make their own destiny...hence the title, 'Exodus'.
Volume Three: 'Revelation' (Revelation)
The remains of vets from the Enternal War, launches themselves into space, to use time dilation to get themselves beyond the current situation, where the current crisis will be an old, maybe forgotten memory. However, the ship starts to lose anti-matter fuel, forcing the crew to abandon ship back to planet Medius. 24 years have passed since the launch of the ship, and Medius is depopulated with the remains of clothing, but no bodies, and some new strangle animals and plants. At some point, the members of old man return to Earth to find some sort of shape-shifting beings and a child-like God. No shit...a god-child. The few reviews I could I find on volume three were negative, often citing the massive Deus ex Machina ending, and seem to be inline with the negative elements of the novel.
