Publisher’s Description: 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…
Review: This was a really fine read. Great world building coupled with superb characterization. The novella flows really well for a work truncated in nature and builds interest to the point where you cannot put it down. An easy 5 stars if written to length rather than as part of a multi-series.
