My rating: 4 out of 5
The shortest route to courage is absolute ignorance.
Quite different read from the Hyperion saga itself. Not quite as complex, but still fun action read written from two alternative perspectives - the hunter and the hunted.
What happens when an empire spanning many worlds collapses one day to the next? What or who will fill the void? And what would they do to keep their newfound power?
We follow a group of 3 new pilgrims as they are being chased from world to world by a priest/soldier intent on capturing one of them. And they get into enough trouble as-is even without someone on their heels. Their survival is more due to luck than skills or right choices. How long will their luck hold? And will it help when it comes to mindless killing machines?
Guess we’ll see…
