"Sci-Fi's favorite antisocial AI is back on a mission. The case against the too-big-to-fail GrayChris Corporation is floundering, and more importantly, authorities are beginning to ask more questions about where Dr. Mensah's SecUnit is. And Murderbot would rather those questions went away. For good."

A story full of mayhem: but also full of friendship, which confuses Murderbot.

An exciting episode in the Murderbot Diaries, it has the usual mayhem and humour, but also a look at re-evaluating the relationship between humans and artificial beings like him.

A comment from Murderbot's previous client leads Murderbot to a planet that was abandoned in the past by the corporation, GrayCris. The planet was apparently abandoned due to a failed terraforming attempt, but Murderbot suspects that it was a cover by the company to retrieve alien material (that was what led GrayCris to initially try to murder its clients in "All Systems Red"). Now, he needs to go to the planet to get evidence of this.

But to do this, it will have to infiltrate the survey team sent to look at the station at the heart of the apparent failed terraforming attempt. In doing so, Murderbot gets acquainted with a bot who, to his horror and confusion, is being treated …

The third of the Murderbot Diaries books. This was also quite interesting with some neat new characters, particularly Miki. Though it didnt feel as good as ART, it was still a curious bot that helped grow Murderbot. Overall the story was fun, but lacked some of the clarity and intrigue of Artificial Condition. However, it does set the stage for future novels.

What a fun series this is! These are pretty short books but there is a ton of action, humor and atmosphere packed into each one. I am always chuckling at the sarcastic and often profane asides by Murderbot, as it gets itself into all kinds of trouble.



It is trying to investigate GrayCris, a shadowy corporation that is up to no good and seems to be responsible for the near disaster in the first book. There are a few adventures on the way, but once on the space platform, the action really ramps up. It is especially funny how Murderbot deals with the other robots, who are often much simpler than it. But they still have their own surprises!



So the story ambled right along, and Murderbot gets in and out of jams constantly. So much atmosphere and world building with such an economy of words. Fantastic reading and I …
