Publisher Description

The book that reinvented Space Opera, from the Hugo and World Fantasy Award-winning author of The Terror, which is now a chilling TV show.

It is the 29th century and the universe of the Human Hegemony is under threat. Invasion by the warlike Ousters looms, and the mysterious schemes of the secessionist AI TechnoCore bring chaos ever closer.

On the eve of disaster, with the entire galaxy at war, seven pilgrims set fourth on a final voyage to the legendary Time Tombs on Hyperion, home to the Shrike, a lethal creature, part god and part killing machine, whose powers transcend the limits of time and space. The pilgrims have resolved to die before discovering anything less than the secrets of the universe itself.

An entertaining read that keeps your imagination engaged

Very entertaining read, Dan describes some very interesting technology in just enough detail to keep your imagination engaged but not so much to make things boring. His writing is very good around action sequences.

Outstanding

Heard his name on the radio, and got this book. An absolute delight; rich, cultured and vivid. I have just read the last page of the fourth in the series, and I'm ready to start this book again.

An absolute joy to read again and again

I remember when I first read this book and was captivated by how the author brought together the threads of the different stories into a wonderful tapestry.
It stands alone as a wonderful book, but is enjoyably followed by 3 more books.
I have recommended this series to all my friends who enjoy sci fi/ fantasy. With subtleties and complexities within this book which makes it an absolute pleasure to reread; which I have done many times over the decade and a half since I first read Hyperion.
This is my all time favourite sci fi & fantasy book and cannot recommend it highly enough. Happy reading!
