This is the last of the Hyperion Cantos and I am just going to assume that anyone reading this review has read the previous three novels. If you haven't go and read Hyperion, because it is really very good. This is the fourth and final book in the series. The strength of the books has never been...

Once again, Simmons dazzles with sheer imagination. He builds wonders upon wonders in the Hyperion universe and never seems to fail at topping himself with something even grander (or stranger) as the tale progresses.
