Title: Rogue Protocol (Murderbot Diaries #3)
Author: Martha Wells
Published by: Tom Doherty Associates (TOR)
Synopsis: SciFi’s favorite antisocial 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. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: I hold a Murderbot Book in my hand and I am happy. Rogue Protocol was another great Murderbot adventure. Murderbot needs to find more evidence on the bad that is the GrayCris Corporation, so it travels to a sparsely populated station and sneaks aboard a scientific expedition. For a Murderbot that doesn't want to be bothered by humans, it sure seems to get stuck protecting them a lot.
It took me a little bit to get into the flow of this book, but I kind of always feel that way with Murderbot. It's like I have to get back into the Murderbot Zone. Try and remember what happened in the last Volume, but once I'm in, it's go time. I end up getting sucked in.
This Volume was really good with the action and danger. It always goes by too fast. I need the next book ASAP! I never know how I feel about the novella format. It offers a really quick story, but I always feel that it ends too soon. Oh, and I always have trouble keeping the other characters straight, usually the humans. There's always a group of them and I hardly ever remember their names.
In conclusion, Murderbot is great! I'm ready for Book Four.
