What a great story. Broken Angels is edgy, fearless, angry, and to the point. This is an excellent sequel to Altered Carbon. Takashi moves from the world of PI to soldier/mercenary, and he takes no prisoners. In our first encounter with this bitter protagonist, we wonder at the military life of an envoy gone PI. Now we know. Besides the stunning array of far-future weaponry and tactics, we get a birds-eye view of the crazy social dynamics of a distant world at war 400 years from now. Politics, sex, corporate espionage, and yes, aliens, all populate the rich universe Morgan has painted. With the crisp ambiance of Blade Runner and the in-your-face encounters of the Sopranos, this novel will not disappoint you. I particularly enjoyed the clash of ideologies that were thoroughly fleshed out. There are the anticipated Morgan twists that satisfy the mystery reader in us, and it plays out nicely, leaving you satisfied. I recommend this to the hard sci-fi, fantasy, and mystery reader, but caution those with delicate sensibilities; if you’re prudish or easily shocked, Morgan is not your author.
