it was amazing

Multi species peaceful coexistence sci-fi is what we need in this divided times

The entire series was a delight in the multi-sapient species sci-fi world of each species finding their common ground and celebrating their differences. The series started from a mostly human POV in the first book, and concluded with a story with almost no humans (except for an emergency visit by a human medical doctor). There were brief explorations of what would alien sapient species think of humans the same way humans would think of them. But mostly, it was about physical and cultural differences of different alien species, how to peacefully coexist and cooperate given the differences, and more importantly, how to celebrate the differences.

It is heartwarming to indulge in such fantasies at current times when (real-life) humans can't accommodate other cultures of our same species.
