Honestly, I really don't remember this book. I finished it a few months back. I think part of it is that this book is so full of themes and poetry and different plots - that I can't quite remember them. I found the first book to be a much more interesting because of the pilgrims. This second book is a more traditional science fiction stories following very similar themes of other big universe type stories. ( )

A fabulous sequel to the Hugo award winning Hyperion. I thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )

I think this series of two books combined is one of the most impressive things I've read. An extremely complex universe rendered in loving detail, an excellent and absorbing plot, and a cast of characters I really cared about, even the Shrike. ( )
