The Fall of Hyperion


This book picks up from the cliff hanger of the first book, Hyperion. So you really need to read that book first.

This book describes the epic events that happen to the Time Tombs pilgrims, the war between the Ousters and the Hegemony, and the Techno Core. There are some very surprising twists. The war is not what it seems and Moneta from the first book has a surprise in store! And while the book ends on a note that seems at first to spell disaster for the human race, you see that even in disaster, the events were also probably the best thing to happen to the human race, both Hegemony and Ouster.

Great epic story that I had a hard time putting down!
