Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding twenty-fifth-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever. Once a gang member, then a marine, then a galaxy-hopping Envoy trained to wreak slaughter and suppression across the stars, a bleeding, wounded Kovacs was chilling out in a New Hokkaido bar when some so-called holy men descended on a slim beauty with tangled, hyperwired hair. An act of quixotic chivalry later and Kovacs was in deep: mixed up with a woman with two names, many powers, and one explosive history. In a world where the real and virtual are one and the same and the dead can come back to life, the damsel in distress may be none other than the infamous Quellcrist Falconer, the vaporized symbol of a freedom now gone from Harlan's World. Kovacs can deal with the madness of AI. He can do his part in a battle against biomachines gone wild, search for a three-centuries-old missing weapons system, and live with a blood feud with the yakuza, and even with the betrayal of people he once trusted. But when his relationship with "the" Falconer brings him an enemy specially designed to destroy him, he knows it's time to be afraid. After all, the guy sent to kill him is himself: but younger, stronger, and straight out of hell. Wild, provocative, and riveting, Woken Furies is a full-bore science fiction spectacular of the highest order-from one of the most original and spellbinding storytellers at work today. "The author's eye for detail and feel for the atmosphere and nuances of sf noir result in a story packed with action and angst that will also appeal to general suspense readers. Highly recommended for most sf and popular fiction collections."-Library Journal Download and start listening now!

    " I met Richard K. Morgan in NYC at a luncheon Random House invited myself and James Killen to. I've read everything Morgan has written since! This novel he used my name for a character. Needless to say, I was very pleased! "

    " Maybe this should have been a lot tighter and somewhat shorter, but for a reader willing to brave them, Woken Furies and the two earlier Takeshi Kovacs novels take a lot of big ideas into a cyber noir future, as told by the impossibly jaded, cynical heart of gold Kovacs. Part detective story and part cyberpunk, His journeys are wandering yet circular, as this soul, doomed to survive reincarnations into body after body through the technology of cortical stack implants, fights to retain something that is human as humanity moves further and further from its original meaning. "

    " Good sci-fi concepts, marred only by the bad sex scenes "

    " All in all a great series. Started really strong and given the nature of "time" in this trilogy, finishes well. A version of the future which allows the author to download his hero into a variety action packed adventures. Loved it. "
