In the stunning continuation of the epic adventure begun in Hyperion, Simmons returns us to a far future resplendent with drama and invention. On the world of Hyperion, the mysterious Time Tombs are opening. And the secrets they contain mean that nothing - nothing anywhere in the universe - will ever be the same.

    "Nope."

    Silly conclusion to a great story. Disappointing hero, lackluster heroine, lots of unnecessary in between characters. Almost seemed as though it was written by a different author from the Hyperion series.

    Story
    "overall not bad"

    There were awkward moments (like the love scenes... yeesh) and the deus ex machina of having the previous series be a fictional work was a bit lazy in my mind.

    However there were moments of incredible fantasy and imagery that were wonderful, and the ending was a pleasant surprise.

    "A solid conclusion."

    If you've read the first three, you're going to read this one. I think you will be content.

    Story
    "What a dissapointment. Best to stop at Endymion."

    While i binge listened to the previous 3 books this one took longer and required me to force myself to finish. its as if the author himself was aging backwards and was now writing at the level of a 16 year old. This story has all the complexity of a wizard of oz and high school rama with the healthy doze of american religiosity, mixed with a dollop of political correctness, with the side of holywood sentimentality, and generously sprinkled with puritanical uptightness. if like me you enjoyed the previous books youll do well to stay away from this one and keep the wonder and awe of the universe mr. Simmons created intact. . or this book will slag it into a pool of bubbling and foul smelling goo.

    "I love this series!"

    From Hyperion to this last book, AMAZING! I have already listened to it twice (4 years ago was the first time) and I know I will listen again in the future.

    "A real science division epic"

    It's been a while since I've found a real science epic and, for me, this tetralogy delivers... good science, interesting: themes, morals, worlds, and technology. what is this Shrike? What is Aenea's true purpose? All will be told.

    "Should have stopped with Hyperion"

    It's a decent story, but the original Hyperion is orders of magnitude better than this.
