In this incredibly epic story, Dan Simmons explores the world of Hyperion through the eyes of several pilgrims set on finding the Shrike, a killing creature worshiped by fanatics on thousand of worlds.

Instead of going directly into explanations about what is that Shrike creature, the author cleverly takes us into his imaginative world by allowing each character to tell his story. From a catholic priest to a drunk poet, each of them has a valid reason to search the Shrike and, in some case, to destroy it.

This is an incredible journey the author takes us to and the sequel “The Fall of Hyperion” should prove to be as entertaining. The writing is rich and imaginative, the characters interesting and the mysteries surrounding Hyperion compelling.

I can’t wait to read the sequel.
