Fallen Dragon

By Peter F. Hamilton

Rating: 4 stars

In an ultra-capitalistic society, the dream of space travel is all but over, written off as economically not viable, except for “asset recovery” missions to already-established colonies that send in private corporate armies to try and get some return on investment for the shareholders.

This is one of my favourite Hamilton books, with its ultra-capitalistic societies proving an interesting backdrop and an interesting reason for continuing with space travel. The main character, an embittered sergeant in one of these corporate armies provides a sympathetic point of view and the hardware is pretty cool too.
