All the Windwracked Stars

Who has read All the Windwracked Stars? I've read it once, but, as is customary for me with Bear's books, there are still some things I'm confused about that might require more readings to figure out. I may actually have to take notes, or something. If anyone wants to have a spoilery chat about it in the comments, that would awesome.
