Summary: It has a dark past – one in which a number of humans were killed. A past that caused it to christen itself “Murderbot”. But it has only vague memories of the massacre that spawned that title, and it wants to know more.

Teaming up with a Research Transport vessel named ART (you don’t want to know what the “A” stands for), Murderbot heads to the mining facility where it went rogue.

What it discovers will forever change the way it thinks…

Here we go,Murderbot is back!I enjoyed this one again. I am glad I tried them cos I remember thinking that why bother since they are only novellas.

Yes! I am glad we tried these! I really liked book 2. I think even a touch more than book 1!!

I am not sure which one I liked more, the first was just right! And this one, well here I knew she was different and funny. ALso Art, I mean ART was great.

ART really topped the cake for me. ART was hilarious!! Bot was funny too and it was nice to learn more about Bot and see Bot try to act more human. 

I did like that we found out what happened, poor Bot. And the trying to be human thing, well they are quite the pair! Great chemistry lol

They made an epic duo. I hope they have more adventures together. They were fun! 

I guess cos it is a novella, I do not have a lot to say to be honest. Great novella, and I can’t wait to see what Bot is up to next!

Plus it was really good and I have zero issues with it. I did listen to the audio version and I liked it. His voice was good. It worked well. However, I think I would’ve liked reading it too (I did read like a chapter of it). Either way this is a great story. 

Audio would be interesting. But I am sticking with ebooks :D But now you have me wondering, I wonder if I can find a sample.

Maybe Audible has a sample you can listen to? I may stick with the ebooks for the future or go back and forth? IDK. I’ll play it by ear. 

Good idea. Wow, this discussion is short! I just have nothing to say. It was a good one.Shit went down. Bot came out on top.

LOL our positive reviews are always short ;) Yessss this was a good one. I liked it more than book 1. Bot is awesome. ART was fun! More pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

The end?

That’s all I got! The end!
