Read full description of the books:
In a galaxy far, far away, (the Large Magellanic Cloud, 160,000 light years from Sol) and over 1,000 years in the future, there lived two fugitives, devoted lovers, Raul Endymion of Hyperion, and the new messiah, Aenea, a product of human and nonhuman parents. The strange thing is they reside on Old Earth, somehow our planet has been poached there, by AI, artificial intelligence ( some are immensely evil). Still the couple is happy, a quiet, peaceful existence after a titanic struggle for survival, but this hiatus of four years, will not last, an unknown destiny awaits them...Earthlings have long built stupendous spaceships, that can surpass light speed, and have scattered throughout the Milky Way, inhabiting hundreds of planets, the starry heavens shine down on the bright , exotic structures, and newly erected modern cities, roads and oceans full of vehicles and boats, people transforming dead worlds into lively lands, bringing animals and plants from home. Yet human nature remains the same, greed, the quest for power , glory, wealth, can never be completely extinguished, but the good, will always try to change this...Raul, goes away, alone, on a puzzling mission, at Aenea's request, via the Farcaster portal, and with just a few detours, one, a giant gas planet he falls literally into, mile after mile, he descends, in an endless atmosphere, with only his entirely unsuitable kayak and parachute, growing hungry and thirsty, this chilling, interminable drop, continues, days pass, the air becoming not breathable, unwanted clouds, a constant companion, curious, weird, menacing, transparent creatures, appear...no land is observed underneath... He awakes, to the mountain world of T'ien Shan, his destination, a planet resembling Tibet, Buddhist monks , pagodas, and a new Dalai Lama, ( a boy of eight) Aenea arrived earlier, and the angry, tortured man, soon calms , his great love for Aenea will never stop. She, an amateur architect, is building a structure for the monks, high above, in a mountain peak, the poisonous clouds lurk below, but they can never stay , the brutal Pax rulers of the galaxy will pursue the two wherever they travel, she is dangerous to them, Nemes, the machine made to destroy her is here, the fierce, unstoppable robot, has brought two siblings, nobody can defeat them, a miracle occurs, the mighty Shrike monster, a mysterious friend, comes, and battles these things, a short opportunity to flee, arises, as the tumultuous brawl goes on. Stepping off the ledge, Raul and Aenea, glide in the air with their artificial wings, high above the never seen ground, many miles under, any mistake will plunge them into the deadly, nearby gas clouds, or treacherous mountain cliffs, but the thrill of flying like birds, soaring and diving , seeing new sights , that are indescribably beautiful and intoxicating , pure ecstasy , in fact, as long as it is possible, to remain there, but they need to reach a distant village soon, in order to escape, time is running out...The last of the enchanting, entertaining , and electrifying , series, for any sci-fi fan... they will enjoy it, I did.

Read information about the authorDan Simmons grew up in various cities and small towns in the Midwest, including Brimfield, Illinois, which was the source of his fictional "Elm Haven" in 1991's SUMMER OF NIGHT and 2002's A WINTER HAUNTING. Dan received a B.A. in English from Wabash College in 1970, winning a national Phi Beta Kappa Award during his senior year for excellence in fiction, journalism and art.
Dan received his Masters in Education from Washington University in St. Louis in 1971. He then worked in elementary education for 18 years—2 years in Missouri, 2 years in Buffalo, New York—one year as a specially trained BOCES "resource teacher" and another as a sixth-grade teacher—and 14 years in Colorado.
His last four years in teaching were spent creating, coordinating, and teaching in APEX, an extensive gifted/talented program serving 19 elementary schools and some 15,000 potential students. During his years of teaching, he won awards from the Colorado Education Association and was a finalist for the Colorado Teacher of the Year. He also worked as a national language-arts consultant, sharing his own "Writing Well" curriculum which he had created for his own classroom. Eleven and twelve-year-old students in Simmons' regular 6th-grade class averaged junior-year in high school writing ability according to annual standardized and holistic writing assessments. Whenever someone says "writing can't be taught," Dan begs to differ and has the track record to prove it. Since becoming a full-time writer, Dan likes to visit college writing classes, has taught in New Hampshire's Odyssey writing program for adults, and is considering hosting his own Windwalker Writers' Workshop.
Dan's first published story appeared on Feb. 15, 1982, the day his daughter, Jane Kathryn, was born. He's always attributed that coincidence to "helping in keeping things in perspective when it comes to the relative importance of writing and life."
Dan has been a full-time writer since 1987 and lives along the Front Range of Colorado—in the same town where he taught for 14 years—with his wife, Karen, his daughter, Jane, (when she's home from Hamilton College) and their Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Fergie. He does much of his writing at Windwalker—their mountain property and cabin at 8,400 feet of altitude at the base of the Continental Divide, just south of Rocky Mountain National Park. An 8-ft.-tall sculpture of the Shrike—a thorned and frightening character from the four Hyperion/Endymion novels—was sculpted by an ex-student and friend, Clee Richeson, and the sculpture now stands guard near the isolated cabin.
