Book Review: Rogue Protocol (Murderbot Diaries #3) by Martha Wells

rogue protocol murderbot diaries threeTitle: Rogue Protocol (Murderbot Diaries #3)

Author: Martha Wells


Who knew being a heartless killing machine would present so many moral dilemmas?

Sci-fi’s favorite antisocial A.I. is back on a mission. The case against the too-big-to-fail GrayCris Corporation is floundering, and more importantly, authorities are beginning to ask more questions about where Dr. Mensah’s SecUnit is.

And Murderbot would rather those questions went away. For good.

My Thoughts:

Despite knowing exactly what to expect with this book after reading the first two, I wasn’t disappointed or bored by this installment whatsoever. Murderbot’s witty observations, asocial attitude, and innate desire to help others in need–despite Murderbot’s insistent claims of apathy–all combine to create another short but incredibly fulfilling space adventure.

This book also pushes the overall series arc forward quite a bit more than the previous installment, which I was happy to see, as I’m looking forward to the resolution of Murderbot’s internal battle over the confusing relationship with Dr. Mensah and a potential future with the human “friends” Murderbot inadvertently made back in book one.

Yet another entertaining read from Martha Wells!

Rating: 5/5 stars
