Agreed that it really doesn't grab you like Spin did, but in my opinion it's worth getting through to finish out the trilogy. Though Vortex is also not as good as Spin, it does redeem the series from this "middle child" book.
Not quite as mind-boggling as the precursor novel "Spin," but well worth reading for a unique vision of extra-terrestrial intelligence and evolution.
Although not the tour-de-force that was Spin, Axis is a worthy successor to that novel. Axis explores the new world beyond the arch that appeared in Spin after the Earth shed its protective membrane, and follows a group of humans on a quest to discover the nature of the Hypotheticals.
A good story, but not as original or enticing as book one of the series. My attachment to the characters was diminished by an averaging out process: too many of them had 'point of view' sections in the narrative.
