I'm about 80 pages from the end of Blue Mars, which is the third book.
And... I finally finished it, Thursday night.

I started Reality 36 by Guy Haley yesterday. From the back cover blurb:

Meet Richards and Klein the Holmes and Watson of the 22nd century.

Except that Richards is a highly advanced artificial intelligence, and Klein his German ex-military cyborg partner. Their first case takes them into the renegade digital realm known as Reality 36 and through the Great Firewall of China, in search of a missing Artificial Intelligence Rights activist. What they find there will threaten every reality.
I find that it's been a bit slow in setting up the world - I'm around page 90 (it's a much faster read than the Mars trilogy was), and there's barely been anything about the missing activist yet. We met him in an earlier chapter, and we've only just found out that he's gone missing. I'm hoping that the story picks up a bit from here.
