"Martha Wells's Hugo, Nebula, Alex, and Locus Award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling series, The Murderbot Diaries, comes to a thrilling conclusion in Exit Strategy.

5 stars

Really quite happy how this all turned out. Also very excited we'll be seeing a complete novel at some stage in 2020.

Truly fantastic writing.
