This sci-fi universe was tailor made for the big screen.

I've read all of the Takeshi Kovacs books and this is the best of the lot. Great character development and a fun read. Hopefully the series continues.

'Woken Furies' is far and beyond above Richard Morgan's last effort in the Takeshi Kovacs series, 'Broken Angels.' The revenge subplot running through Kovacs' actions on Harlan's World provides the perfect touch of noir to the novel, and the entire question of both literally and philosophically who is Quellcrist Falconer, a vague and somewhat-unnecessary presence in the earlier tales, propels 'Woken Furies' into the stratosphere, no pun intended. It's a nice return to form for Morgan, who made 'Broken Angels,' itself not a bad novel, little more than a treasure hunt while inexplicably introducing the race of Martians into the mix of human colonization of the galaxy. In fact, the continued presence of the Martians in this chapter of Kovacs' life is the only reason why I didn't rate this novel a perfect 5 -- however, that's what happens when you can't have a half-star addition! 'Woken Furies' simply rings true to me, like it really could and should have happened the way events unfolded, and that's a sure sign of success in any fictional genre. I am not sure why this novel didn't receive better distribution than it did -- note the late date of my review -- but I am simply happy I finally found a hardcover copy. I truly hope this is not the end of the line for Takeshi Kovacs, especially as I am not exactly enjoying as of my writing this review 'Market Forces,' driving the point home to me that Richard K. Morgan's best strengths as a writer lie in the 25th Century.

In the distant future, Takeshi Kovacs heads home to repressive Harlan¿s World to eerily confront himself when he was an Envoy working for the UN as a super soldier to keep people on the remote planets in check. Since he could afford to leave that body behind, Takeshi downloaded his personality into a new 'sleeve' and left for another world to start life anew...................... On Harlan¿s World, Kovacs soon finds himself protecting Sylvie, an apparent reincarnation of a long dead messiah, from the First Families, who need her dead as her message interferes with the power they yield. The First Families send an Envoy to kill Sylvie, but Kovacs believes the killer is a younger healthier him................ This is an action-packed science fiction Noir that starts in hyperspeed before accelerating into faster than light velocity. The suspense laden story line is all action except when Richard K. Morgan chooses to pontificate against any form of religious fundamentalism, which Kovacs believes by its essence means its burden requires either altering carbon structure or breaking the angels of those of other belief systems. Kovacs is at his best when affirming you can¿t home, at least not safely. Fans of electrifying futuristic thrillers will appreciate the award winning author's latest triumph...............

I've loved the Takeshi Kovacs character. In this novel, Morgan brings the character to life. His thoughts, his past, his personality are more immediate and brought to the front of the story. While there is a lot of action in the final book of this series, Kovacs and his internal struggles are really the centerpiece of this story. In Woken Furies, it's less about Kovacs solving a mystery and more about YOU solving what Kovacs is doing. A great book. I loved it!
