Woken Furies

by Richard Morgan
Release date: March 2005
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Takeshi Kovacs has come home.

Home to Harlan's World. An ocean planet with only 5% of its landmass poking above the dangerous and unpredictable seas. Try and 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.

Embarked on a journey of implacable retribution for a lost love, Kovacs is blown off course and into a maelstrom of political intrigue and technological mystery as the ghosts of Harlan's World and his own violent past rise to claim their due. Quellcrist Falconer is back from the dead, they say, and hunting her down for the First Families is a savage young Envoy called Kovacs, who's been in storage for two hundred years and who isn't about to share his new existence with a burnt out, ageing, criminal self.

There are gangsters, bounty hunters, religious cultists and hopeful revolutionaries, all wanting a piece of the action – and Kovacs is still trying to work out exactly what that action is. Amidst the rapidly mounting chaos, only one thing is certain – at some point, someone called Takeshi Kovacs is going to die. For good.
