Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "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.

    "great book,well read"

    Liked the book, though unsure of the ending it threw a load of closure in a hurry, maybe a deadline or word oimit.

    The narration was good, though pauses where the narrative jumped in time would have been helpful.

    Story
    "An epic in a nutshell"

    Classic Hamilton, fantastic short story in comparison to Peters other epics, but just as enthralling, entertaining and as usual a page turner.

    Highly recommended if you do not have the time to devote to one of the trilogies.

    Story
    "Good but lots of flannel"

    Good story, but really somewhat longer than it needs to be. Better Hamilton titles are available, clear that this one is good early work.

    Story
    "So far I have never been disappointed by Peter"

    work of art, twisting time with wonderful technology and aliens. Had my imagination running itself amock, superb, captivating.

    although I did struggle understanding the point of the pirate corporation, while I understand the image, it's bloody unrealistic to have an army of debt collectors.
