The Martians disappeared long ago, but they left behind their star gates, which have allowed humanity to spread across the galaxy--and bring warfare to the stars. As Broken Angels opens, Takeshi Kovacs is a lieutenant in humankind's most feared mercenary company, but rumors of an astonishing archaelogical discovery inspire his desertion. Humans have never found a Martian starship until, perhaps, now. If the rumors are true, and the ruthless Kovacs can take possession of the unprecedented relic, he will make his fortune. But if he fails in his quest, he may find himself imprisoned in high-tech hell for eternity. --Cynthia Ward
Still, to say that it is not as good would be unfair because the two books can't be compared.
For lack of better words, I felt the story and writing didn't flow very well, frequently didn't focus on the aspects I was interested in, or left them unexplained.
This is the second Takeshi Kovacs novel by author Richard Morgan, the first being the very good ALTERED CARBON.
A good reprise of the altered carbon universe. Enjoyable, almost world-building. Character development could be better. But a good ride.Published 1 day ago by Paul Kostyack

Broken Angels is a good book that I enjoyed to read and finish.
However, the story could progress faster and there is too much characters to be able to understand their... Read more
While this is an older book, I really connected with the protagonist, Takeshi Kovacs. A Bladerunner feeling permeates the entire scene. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Allen King
