Fallen Dragon is a classic standalone novel by science fiction star, Peter F. Hamilton.Born in a colony world in 2310, Lawrence Newton hankered after the golden era of starships exploring the galaxy. But the age of human starflight was drawing to a close, so this hot-headed teenager ran away from home in search of adventure. Twenty years later, he's the sergeant of a washed-out platoon taking part in the bungled invasion of another world. The giant corporations call such campaigns 'asset realization', but in practice it's simple piracy. While he's on the ground, being shot at and firebombed by local resistance forces, Lawrence hears stories about the Temple of the Fallen Dragon - and a sect devoted to the worship of a mythical creature that fell to the ground millennia ago. More importantly, its priests are said to guard a hoard of treasure large enough to buy lifelong happiness...

Jag tyckte vldigt mycket om Night's Dawn-trilogin. Fallen Dragon blev inte alls samma upplevelse. Hamiltons anslag r lika episkt som ngonsin, men hr tycker jag faktiskt intrigen sviktar under den sanslsa detaljrikedomen och den stundtals direkt omstndliga vgen fram till bokens sista fjrdedel dr ntligen alla trdar smlter samman. Jag frstr syftet men tycker inte genomfrandet r alltigenom lyckat. Dremot r det en roman som i sina enskildheter bjuder p en hel del intressanta passager.
