Woken Furies is the third installment in Richard Morgan’s Takeshi Kovacs saga, and according to Richard Morgan it will be last. If this is so, the series goes out with a bang, bringing together a lot of the world building hints Morgan has strewn around in the first two novels, Altered Carbon, and Broken Angels.
A brilliant mesh of cyberpunk and noir, this is one of the best novels I’ve read this year—smart, ferocious, and with a tight plot, it is one intense ride.
While Woken Furies can be read as a stand-alone, it is much more fulfilling if you’ve read the previous two installments.
Get on board the Kovacs train. You won’t be disappointed.
