The Sparrow
3.  The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell

The Hyperion Omnibus: Hyperion, The Fall of Hyperion (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
4.  The Hyperion Omnibus: Hyperion, The Fall of Hyperion (GOLLANCZ S.F.) by Dan Simmons
The list author says:
  "Make sure you read the Endymion books as well (ISBN: 0575076348). Close call between these and the Rama's, but this is probably Simmon's best work. Few create characters as deep and colourful as this."
