The Captain’s Log – rogue protocol (Martha Wells)

Ahoy there me mateys!  This be the third book of a quartet.  While I try to post no spoilers, if ye haven’t read the previous two then ye might want to skip this post. If ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . .

I love the Murderbot!  I thought the first novella was basically perfect and loved the second just as much.  This one was almost as good.  The plot was a little vague but I didn’t really care.  I thought it has a fabulous beginning and I love how the Murderbot continues to explore its identity and ponder its future.  Like ART in the last novella, this one also has fantastic robot interactions.  Only Miki, in this one couldn’t be less like ART.  I just adore all the varied and nuanced robot personalities.  I don’t want to get into too many details because it is better for the reader to savour on their own.  Read about the Murderbot and fall in love.

Side note:  There be one more novella scheduled in the series that arrives in October.  I need it now!!

Check out me crew members reviews of this one:

Elise @ thebookishactress’ review – “I’m going to stop reviewing these novellas individually because I’m not going to lie: this entire volume could be about Murderbot laughing at a cat video and I would enjoy it.”

Niki @ theobsessivebookseller’s review – “I braced myself for this book. My trust in this author and this series was so strong by this point that I just hopped in and buckled up without even asking where we were going. And I was treated to possibly my favorite of the bunch (it’s like combing fine hairs).”

Sarah @ theillustratedpage’s review – “I adore this series, and I’m happy to hear that Martha Wells is going to be publishing a Murderbot novel! More Murderbot is always a good thing.”

Goodreads has this to say about the novella:

SciFi’s favorite crabby A.I. is again 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.

  1. Thanks for the shoutout! 🙂 I’m so glad you’re liking these as much as I do. I just read an article saying TOR signed Wells for a full-length novel continuation of Murderbot’s story!!!

  2. I cant wait to start this series! I just have so many review commitments that I should read first. But they’re short, there’s no reason I can’t just squeeze one in soon, right?😁
