Cynical, quick-on-the-trigger Takeshi Kovacs, the ex-U.N. envoy turned private eye, has changed careers, and bodies, once more…trading sleuthing for soldiering as a warrior-for-hire, and helping a far-flung planet's government put down a bloody revolution. But when it comes to taking sides, the only one Kovacs is ever really on is his own. So when a rogue pilot and a sleazy corporate fat cat offer him a lucrative role in a treacherous treasure hunt, he's only too happy to go AWOL with a band of resurrected soldiers of fortune. All that stands between them and the ancient alien spacecraft they mean to salvage are a massacred city bathed in deadly radiation, unleashed nanotechnolgy with a million ways to kill, and whatever surprises the highly advanced Martian race may have in store. But armed with his genetically engineered instincts, and his trusty twin Kalashnikovs, Takeshi is ready to take on anything—and let the devil take whoever's left behind.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A cinema-rich world rivaling that of Philip K. Dick.”

    USA Today

  • “Broken Angels is clearly the work of a gifted, ambitious storyteller. Morgan’s prose is clean and direct, his characters almost uniformly hard-edged, his future convincing, well conceived, and decked out with an almost limitless array of technological marvels.”

    Washington Post

  • “Morgan writes with…panache and conviction…Drenched in brutality and yet with a sensitivity in the [narrative], it seems a fairly safe bet Morgan’s going to be a heavy hitter in the genre.”

    SFX Magazine

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sebastian | 2/16/2014

    " Overall it was an entertaining read and I enjoyed it. That said, it really was just so much cinematic fluff - an action movie in book form. Nothing wrong with that as long as you take it for what it is: a "guilty pleasure" type of book. I think I somewhat preferred Morgan's first Takashi Kovacs novel, "Altered Carbon", as it was more character driven but this was a worthy sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zac | 2/11/2014

    " A huge let down from Altered Carbon to this. I STRUGGLED to get through this... just absolutely nothing at all sucking me in. And then when things really did finally start to happen, I just didn't care. I'd go into specifics and spoilers but it doesn't seem necessary. I won't be bothering to read the third in this series. Really disappointed because I LOVED Altered Carbon. Ugh "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris LaHatte | 2/7/2014

    " I really hesitated over the 3rd star for this. I liked his more recent The Steel Remains, and can see his writing has matured since then. Much of this would have benefited from a red pencil to tighten up the story and remove some of the almost irrelevant parts. Some good concepts, but the battle scenes were a a bit unlikely, and the ability of the hero to sustain damage and carry on was a bit stretched even with the technology. Some of the characters were interesting but he didn't develop them enough. Many of the rest were forgettable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shay | 1/11/2014

    " A slow start, but worth sticking with. I especially love how it's the women who can actually fix things/save the day while the men are off beating each other senseless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erich Hugo | 1/10/2014

    " serious let down after altered carbon "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra Sandle | 1/9/2014

    " not a patch on the first one "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian McCusker | 12/27/2013

    " Love this book. A great sequel to Altered Carbon, yet a whole new story on it's own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Cavosie | 12/24/2013

    " Where Altered Carbon mined noir, Broken Angels mines the war and espionage tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 12/11/2013

    " Decent follow up but didn't have the same depth as Altered Carbon. In all fairness that is an incredibly high bar. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gingub Gravette | 6/8/2013

    " took awhile to get into this book - but worth it in the end, so hang in there if you find the first 1/4 of the book missing the zing of book 1. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 5/25/2013

    " Not as good as the first, but still great "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Holland | 8/12/2012

    " Not as good as Altered Carbon but still a solid read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Evans | 5/3/2012

    " Better than the first novel. Some plot arcs are more or less superfluous. Less playful, more brutal; the parts of the book which resonate are the ones which offend. In that sense it's a fairly unpleasant book, but since that was the point I have to say well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lysergius | 2/4/2012

    " Love these books. Wonderful concept! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah'sDad | 4/23/2011

    " Second in series every bit as good as the first. Going for third soon. Highly recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 4/7/2011

    " Not as good as the first, but a very interesting futuristic military fiction piece. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 3/18/2011

    " Third re-read. Says something. I'd never re-read a book (outside of academia) until Richard K. Morgan came along. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erik | 3/6/2011

    " Maybe I'm getting stingy and simplier in my old age, but way too much gratuity in this book for me to give it 3 stars. And all the Martian crap at the end was just confusing.

    However, just one book in the trilogy left so I'll throw it on my list to read at some point. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick | 1/13/2011

    " You've really got to be a fan to feel that this one didn't drag horribly. I am now not a fan. "

    " Loved it! Its nice to find non Gibson quality cyber punk. "

    " I love the attitude of the main character. A bunch of good ideas in here. Same universe as the first book. Good stuff. "
