I loved his commonwealth series, and I love John Lee's narration. This book is a different universe, but still it was quite good. Hamilton and Lee knock it out of the park yet again.
There is one thing about Peter F Hamilton and John Lee though that bugs me and makes me have to pay more attention to the words and less to my imagination, and that is the shifts between scenes. It can be hard to realize when the narration has gone to another character, or even another time. Lee can be talking for a minute before I realize we are in a different scene. It may be the editor, or the book, or the narrator, but it is a definite issue that plagues most of the books Hamilton and Lee do.
Other than that, the technology is easily imagined, along with great characters and detailed scenery.

Great book with great Sci-Fi concepts. The story is quite slow to start with and I found that sometimes the viewpoint changed a bit too frequently with plot points being wrapped up quickly and without much explanation. This caused me to be a bit confused early on but I got the hang of it.
The Sci-Fi concepts are top notch, good for pondering post read. My favorite types of Sci-Fi are the ones that keep me thinking long after I've finished reading and Fallen Dragon definitely hit the mark. I found it to be a refreshing take on Sci-Fi with more of a grim, realist adaptation of regular tropes.
