Description

Fallen Dragon is a classic standalone novel by science fiction star Peter F. Hamilton.

Lawrence Newton always dreamed of adventure amongst the stars. Now the ultimate prize is within his grasp, but what will he risk to get it?

Lawrence is the sergeant of a washed-out platoon taking part in the bungled invasion of yet another human colony world. The giant corporations call such campaigns 'asset realization', but in practice it's simple piracy.

When he's on the ground, being shot at and firebombed by resistance forces, he recalls stories of the Temple of the Fallen Dragon. Its priests supposedly guard a treasure hoard large enough to buy lifelong happiness. So Lawrence decides to mount a dangerous private-enterprise operation of his own.

A coherent universe inhabited by believable people

Hard science fiction at its best. Hamilton has created a fully realised universe and filled it with utterly believable characters. The ending was perfect. John Lee's narration was quite compelling.

Not quite a sum of its parts

All the elements of a PFH classic are there - soldiers, revolutionaries, captains of industry.

There's an interesting ftl mechanic in the "portal colony" idea.

But it doesn't quite gel into a perfect whole.

The rambling storyline and standalone world remind me of his Great North Road, which I rate similarly, mostly for the unstoppable space eating viral alien threat idea.

It's a good book, but not one of his best.

Magnificent book and narrator!

I read this book when I was 15 and just finished listening to the audiobook. Excellent performance again by John Lee and great story!

Like!

If you like the Commonwealth universe and Hamilton's detailed, describing writing, this one is for you. Even better, it is only one book, the end makes Sense, leaves not much open. A must.

Gute Story aber gegen Ende hin wenig aufregend

Ein gutes aber nicht sein bestes Buch. Wo am Anfang durchaus Platz für Twists war und diese auch schön genutzt wurden, ist gegen Ende hin das Buch immer geradliniger und die Entscheidungen des Akteurs wirken etwas aufgesetzt.

Da wäre Platz für eine Trilogie und mehr gewesen.

Dennoch: ein gutes Buch.
