Titles and summary in this set for Altered Carbon 3 Book Collection By Richard Morgan:
- Altered Carbon
- Broken Angels
- Woken Furies
This must-read story is a confident, action-and-violence packed thriller and future classic noir SF novel from a multi-award-winning author. Four hundred years from now, humankind is strung out across a region of interstellar space inherited from an ancient civilization discovered on Mars. The colonies are linked together by the occasional sublight colony ship voyages and hyperspatial datacasting. Human consciousness is digitally freighted between the stars and downloaded into bodies as a matter of course.
Fifty years after the events of ALTERED CARBON, Takeshi Kovacs is serving as a mercenary in the Procterate-sponsored war to put down Joshuah Kemp's revolution on the planet Sanction IV. He is offered the chance to join a covert team chasing a prize whose value is limitless -- and whose dangers are endless. Here is a novel that takes humankind to the brink. A breakneck-paced crime thriller, ALTERED CARBON, took its readers deep into the universe Morgan had so compellingly realized without ever letting them escape the onward rush of the plot. BROKEN ANGELS melds SF, the war novel, and the spy thriller to take the reader below the surface of this future and lay bare the treacheries, betrayals, and follies that leave man so ill-prepared for the legacy he has been given: the stars. This is SF at its dizzying best: superb yet subtle, world-building; strong yet sensitive characterization; excellent yet believable technology; thrilling yet profound writing. Richard Morgan is set to join the genre's worldwide elite.
This is high-action, ideas-driven noir SF of the highest order. Morgan has already established himself as an SF author of global significance. Takeshi Kovacs has come home.
Home to Harlan's World. It is an ocean planet with only 5% of its landmass poking above the dangerous and unpredictable seas. Get above the weather in anything more sophisticated than a helicopter, and the Martian orbital platforms will burn you out of the sky. And death doesn't just wait for you in the seas and the skies. On land, from the tropical beaches and swamps of Kossuth to the icy, machine-infested wastes of New Hokkaido, the hard-won gains of the Quellist revolution have been lost. The First Families, the corporations, and the Yakuza have a stranglehold on everything.
