    The most advanced scientific enterprise ever mounted, Sir John Franklin’s 1845 expedition in search of the fabled Northwest Passage had every expectation of triumph. But for almost two years his ships, HMS Terror and Erebus, have been trapped in the Arctic ice. Supplies of fuel and food are running low. Scurvy, starvation and even madness are beginning to take their toll. And yet the real threat isn’t from the constantly shifting, alien landscape, the flesh-numbing temperatures or being crushed by the unyielding, frozen ocean. No, the real threat is far more terrifying.

    Beneath the gaze of the gods, the mighty armies of Greece and Troy met in fierce and glorious combat, scrupulously following the text set forth in Homer's timeless narrative. But that was before 21st-century scholar Thomas Hockenberry stirred the bloody brew, causing an enraged Achilles to join forces with his archenemy, Hector, and turn his murderous wrath on Zeus and the entire pantheon of divine manipulators; before the swift and terrible mechanical creatures that catered for centuries to the pitiful idle remnants of Earth's human race began massing in the millions, to exterminate rather than serve.

    Im Jahr 2700 - die Erde ist durch den Großen Fehler bereits vor langem zerstört worden - leben die Menschen auf 200 verschiedenen Planeten. Künstliche Intelligenzen - kurz KIs genannt - kontrollieren diese Welten in einem Computernetz. Sie haben sich zu den heimlichen Herrschern über die Menschen erhoben. Auf dem Planeten Hyperion, der außerhalb dieser Kernzone liegt, regiert eine Schreckensgottheit: das Shrike, einem rätselhaftes Wesen, halb organisch, halb mechanisch, und Inbegriff des Schmerzes und der Qual.
