There are other human beings living beyond The Hegemony of Man, and these Ousters are about to trigger all-out war by invading Hyerion, a remote planet, a world of mysteries. The Tombs have been the center of political and philosophical controversy since their discovery in Hyperion's desert. There are those who believe the Tombs signify that the time has come for humanity to Atone for its long, bloody history,. And the instrument of Atonement is the Shrike-the Lord of Pain. Now the leaders of Hedgemony have decided to allow one final journey for seven specially chosen pilgrims. One thing is certain: at a time of impending chaos, the Shrike and those facing his awful judgement hold the key to the future.
