Product description

Review

¿Richard Morgan, never less than engrossing, his mastery of the SF thriller has brought a well deserved new kudos to the genre.¿ (Peter F Hamilton)

"Morgan creates a narrative which is akin to a weapons-loaded ship crewed by angry pirates. An action packed thriller full of brilliantyl choreographed set-piece scenes. (SFX)

"Underneath all the crowd pleasing violence, it is an interesting tale" 3/5 (Anthony Brown Dreamwatch)

The characterisations are vibrant... a rich plot and trademark conceptual freestlying.. hits the retina like a laser beam and it's a true page turner. (Richard Bagley Morning Star)

This is a terrific book; the only problem is that it's quite hard to know quite what Morgan can do for an encore. (Alex Sarll PA News)

As inventively nasty as Morgan's other novels about Kovacs. Morgan's world is one of unbridled capitalist thuggery where more goes wrong than the rest of us easily imagine. (Roz Kaveney TIME OUT)

Richard Morgan¿s hardboiled SF books about the grimly blood-spattered ¿hero¿ Takeshi Kovacs come with a formidable reputation and it¿s easy to see why. The third book, WOKEN FURIES, is terrific. Morgan¿s narrative can seem unsympathetically inhuman and amoral, only to pull you up short with deliciously ingenious SF twists on psycho-thriller melodramas. Remember, when a femme fatale starts chanting machine code at an intimate moment, it is time to be very afraid. His writing is rewardingly dense (DREAMWATCH)

(A) Maelstrom of plasmafrag rifle fire, neurachem enhancements and alien constructs. A third outing for Richard Morgan's anti-hero Takeshi Kovacs, Woken Furies marks something of a consolidation point both for the hard-bitten ex-special forces operative, and the calculating heavy metal noir environment he inhabits. (EDGE)

Morgan's knack for grisly set-pieces and heart-stopping violence makes for compulsive reading. A superior SF thriller. (Dave Langford Amazon)

Cyberpunk continues to work because the original was built on the foundations of hard-boiled detective fiction, and readers instantly understand the rules. Morgan takes those rules and twists them just enough to add uncertainty to the mix. (Jon Courtenay Grimwood GUARDIAN)
