I received a free eARC copy from Tor Books ,via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
No, I didn’t kill the dead human. If I had, I wouldn’t dump the body in the station mall.
When Murderbot discovers a dead body on Preservation Station, it knows it is going to have to assist station security to determine who the body is (was), how they were killed (that should be relatively straightforward, at least), and why (because apparently that matters to a lot of people—who knew?)
Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must voluntarily speak to humans!
Murderbot and a Murder Mystery! Martha Wells is spoiling me. This was a different shift for the Murderbot series, no romping through the galaxy saving humans from themselves. It was also a lot less emotional than Book 5. However, I still really loved it. I am a huge fan of a quirky police procedural i.e. Magician’s that solve crimes, writers that solve crimes, and now human robot constructs whom have broken their governor modules that solve crimes!
It was nice to have a more relaxed adventure for Murderbot, getting to see more of preservation station and how Murderbot is integrating into his new life. It still had the prefect amount of sass and a good amount of action just with this new flex of Murderbot’s abilities.
I honest think wither you are a Sci-Fi fan or not that there is something to love about the Murderbot diaries. Tor has just announced that there are going to be three more in the series and I cannot be more excited.
