“I had a complex emotional reaction. A whole new burst of neural connections blossomed. Oh right, I often have complex emotional reactions which I can’t easily interpret.”

Murberbot continues its adventures, and exploring the learning curve of what it means to be a Murderbott. Absolutely solid balance between planning, action, and dialogue this time, with a very satisfying resolution.

“It was very dramatic, like something out of a historical adventure serial. Also correct in every aspect except for all the facts, like something out of a historical adventure serial.”

My nitpick–and damn if Wells wasn’t the one to point it out–don’t do that, authors–is that there was a part that said ‘Bot can’t process organics. Like no organic material in, no waste material out. Does. Not. Compute. Unless her (Wells’) organics are plant-based, then we might have a system. But Just No.

Still, it had a perfect resolution–all the feels–so we’ll go with five non-robotic stars.

    I love the series too! What do you think of the price point? I’m looking forward to a full length novel entry in the series.

      I’ll be honest–I refuse to pay for ebooks over $4.99. I prefer paper, but I’m blessed with a fabulous library system. So I read all four in hardcover through the library. That said, if she releases it as a set, I will totally get it.
