Cynical, quick-on-the-trigger Takeshi Kovacs, the ex-UN 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 by 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. "

    " 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 "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
