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.

Morgan continues his cyberpunk universe where consciousness can be downloaded into new bodies. Life in this context is cheap, and the violence stays at a high level. This second novel has an intriguing storyline about Martian artifacts, reflecting a vastly higher level of civilization existing millennia before humans. But did the Martians truly evolve beyond warfare?

Second one with hero Takeshi Kovacs. Not as exciting a read as Altered Carbon, maybe the concept of "sleeves" as new host bodies for people is not so exciting. Mystery of Martian ruins, various mercenary characters - was OK but found myself skimming at times, skipping any philosophy and looking for some action. Not sure if was my mood or the book - I suspect the latter. Won't be watching for more in the series.

OK. Enough is enough! I've read two Takehish Kovacs "novels" now and if I do any more it'll be under the covers with a flashlight! This isn't literature, it's marketing. I hope the movie comes out soon so I can boycott it.
