Summary
"Riley, a veteran of interstellar war, is one of many beings from many different worlds aboard a ship on a pilgrimage that spans the galaxy. However, he is not journeying to achieve transcendence, a vague mystical concept that has drawn everyone else on the ship to this journey into the unknown at the far edge of the galaxy. His mission is to find and kill the prophet who is reputed to help others 'transcend'"--

Summary
As it travels to its destination at the end of the galaxy, where a Prophet offers guidance in achieving Transcendence, dilapidated spaceship Geoffrey plays host to a motley crew of pilgrims who pass the time by telling their stories. In addition to Aldebaran "flower child" 4107 (a sentient plant), heavy-world tripod Tordor, "weasel-faced" alien Xi, and captive-born human Asha, there's also mercenary Riley, a war veteran hired by anonymous but powerful employers to identify the Prophet and kill him. Fans of Dan Simmons' Hyperion, which also draws inspiration from The Canterbury Tales to present multiple narratives from diverse perspectives, should enjoy this richly detailed, thought-provoking novel. - Description by Gillian Speace
