Review: Woken Furies

The third installment in Richard Morgan’s Takeshi Kovacs saga is great.

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.
