I've finished the series, but I'm left wondering about Moneta's transformation into a Shrike-like form during her last meeting with Kassad in the first book.

After that and during the second book before they meet again, Kassad is very unsure about everything regarding her. However, Kassad seems to have been put at ease again simply after they meet in the second book. The transformation isn't even brough up with her, if I remember correctly.

Almost all of the immediate questions left from the first book seem to be explained in the second. The others seem to be generally addressed at the end of the last book. But I don't think what was going on with that one meeting between Kassad and Moneta was ever discussed.

  • I read the last two books. I didn't notice it mentioned. – user28185 Jul 10 '14 at 4:00

    I vaguely remember her bringing it up when they meet in Fall of Hyperion, to the extent that she says something along the lines of "it was the Shrike that tricked you, not me" (I think). I found the revelation that Moneta and Rachel were the same person to be far, far more irksome than the Shrike incident, however. – aroth Oct 22 '15 at 14:29
