Publisher Description

The magnificent conclusion to one of the greatest science fiction sagas of our time

The time of reckoning has arrived. As a final genocidal Crusade threatens to enslave humanity forever, a new messiah has come of age. She is Aenea and she has undergone a strange apprenticeship to those known as the Others. Now her protector, Raul Endymion, one-time shepherd and convicted murderer, must help her deliver her startling message to her growing army of disciples.

But first they must embark on a final spectacular mission to discover the underlying meaning of the universe itself. They have been followed on their journey by the mysterious Shrike--monster, angel, killing machine--who is about to reveal the long-held secret of its origin and purpose. And on the planet of Hyperion, where the story first began, the final revelation will be delivered--an apocalyptic message that unlocks the secrets of existence and the fate of humankind in the galaxy.

Rise of Endymion

Probably the finest series I have read in years. The only problem is, it had to end. If you love a good story loaded with life changing vision that will challenge what you thought you knew about religion, philosophy, history and more importantly spirituality Start with Hyperion and finish here 4 books of the meaning of Love.

Rise of Endymion

Have been reading books for more than half a century. This book and it's predecessor series combine the best of all I have ever enjoyed in my reading...science, sci fi,fantasy, history, poetry, romance...everything I've enjoyed and loved.

Four and a half star finale to a five star series

Most great works of science fiction end up being great works of philosophy, as well. The Hyperion Cantos series is no exception, with the fourth and final book punctuating its universal lesson of tolerance and understanding.

The final book loses half a star because too much of it is slowed in places by Dickensian description.
