The Fall of Hyperion - Hyperion, Bk 2 Author:Dan Simmons 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.
Love, love, love. The first book of the series was merely a prequel to The Fall of Hyperion. Thoughtful and complex, this one was a page turner to the end. I highly recommend the book 1/book 2 set, even if you don't think of yourself as a "sci-fi" fan.
