Publisher's Summary

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.

Broken Angels is the second Takeshi Kovacs novel. Don't miss the first, Altered Carbon, or the third, Woken Furies.

"A lively follow-up to an energetic debut, with a still refreshingly cynical hero." (Booklist)

    "Triple wow!"

    The Takeshi Kovacs trilogy is scifi at its best. Extremely original, you can never predict what comes next; the stories are tight and the characters always interesting. Very addictive and entertaining.

    "the best"

    This was absolutely the very best Sci-Fi/horror/adventure novel I've ever read, and I've read a lot of them............I can't wait to read his latest of the series, Woken Furies, hope it comes to Audible soon, or I just might buy the hardback....lol.

    "Bla Bla Bla"

    I Loved Morgan's other book Market Forces, it is one of my all time favorites. But, both Altered Carbon and Broken Angels put me to sleep. The reader of this book is a bit boring and had the effect of making me tune out, kind of like my 10th grade science teacher whose class I slept through. It was like I was hypnotized. I couldn't make it through either book which is unfortunate since I used up two of my credits to this rambling, yawn inspiring saga. The plot didn't advance quick enough and didn't keep me interested. Don't get me wrong I loved the premise of both books, but the readers lips were moving and all I heard was bla, bla, bla. Dick Tracy on downers. Boring. Which is amazing because the basic plot is so creative. Buyer beware.

    "Exciting military sci-fi story, but....."

    I really enjoyed the story line and the characters, but the story was an "F-bomb" fest. It is one thing to skip over the "F-bombs" reading a story, but to hear them in the quantity they appeared in this story was too much, it ruined the story for me. I probably won't buy any other stories by this author. The story also has a graphic sex scene. Too much for me, I like PG-13 stories.
