    I?m going to stop reviewing these books because I?m not going to lie: this entire volume could be about Murderbot laughing at a cat video and I would enjoy it. I love the questions this series brings up of what makes a human, and I?m increasingly feeling like the answers are comi...

    Urban fantasy has made it to the broken assassinbot AI stage in a big way. Just as much internal monologues as the other field, but this is entirely a corporate/spaceships/planetary colonies kind of popcorn fiction. Is this is as good as the other two delicious entries? I think so. ...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/08/23/... Murderbot?s back again in Rogue Protocol, the third installment in Martha Wells? series of sci-fi novellas about a rogue A.I. who has broken free of its SecUnit programming, but all it wants is to be left...

    Not only is Murderbot in full snark while looking for more evidence of GrayCris? criminal activity, but Murderbot is also jealous. Not something it has experienced before, so it?s interesting to see as Murderbot must deal with the loved and coddled robot of a human on a terraformin...

    I tried hard to keep this free of spoilers, but I might have failed a little. ?There needs to be an error code that means ?I received your request but decided to ignore you.?? Sassy bot is back! This newest novella is full of increasing levels of snark, sarcasm and mental e...

    Rogue Protocol continues the trend of exploring a different theme in every movie. This time it about friendship and what it means (I know it sounds a bit My Little Pony-ish but its not) Murderbot meets a robot, Miki, in a team who, while simple, is devoted to the humans and vice ver...

    The good thing about pretending to be an augmented human security consultant instead of a construct SecUnit is that you can tell the humans to shut up. Rogue Protocol marks the third short entry in Murderbot's diaries, and once again our favourite anti-social bot has found a way to ...

    Oh, Murderbot, let me count the ways I adore you....seriously, though, these books are just excellent. I love viewing the world through their eyes, and the overall mystery unfolding is great, too. ...
