This novella is the culmination of the Murderbot Novellas, in which our nameless murderbot cyborg tries to nail the evil GrayCris corporation for the series of crimes against settlers and researchers, has to rescue it’s “owner”, sponsor and friend Dr. Mensah from the claws of GrayCris, and make friends on the way. And while Murderbot has no problems with violent action and explosions, it is still scared of emotions and … people.
While this concludes the arc of the previous three novellas, a fifth full novel length Murderbot story, Network Effect, is in the works and will be published mid-2020.
All of the Murderbot stories so far have been outstanding storytelling and characterisation and are strongly recommended.
