Hyperion by Dan Simmons

Seven pilgrims set out on a potentially fatal one-way trip to visit the Time Tombs on the planet of Hyperion, where a godlike killing machine called the Shrike will possibly grant one of them a wish … and probably slaughter the rest.

Each pilgrim takes their turn in telling the story of what has brought them to this pilgrimage. Each character's story is gripping, fascinating, chill-inducing. Each is worth the price of admission and offers clues to the puzzle of the Time Tombs and the Shrike.
