Rogue Protocol is the third book within The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells.
I picked this series up on a whim last year and quickly fell in love with Murderbot and Martha Wells’ humorous writing style. It draws you in right away!
In this installment we rejoin Murderbot on its continued hunt for answers regarding its violent past.
It ends up on another mission, this time heading to a terraforming facility once run by the mysterious and sinister GrayCris Corporation.
More humans are involved; there mucky things up for our beloved Murderbot, yet again. It also needs to befriend, or intelligently influence, another AI. This time a tragically adorable, human-form companion robot named, Miki.
Miki’s entire personality was exploding with cute. I loved their interactions; so pure.
As usual, there was a lot of action, more betrayals and corporate cover-ups. It also ended much too quickly, although this one definitely crushed my heart a little bit there at the end. Not going to lie.
Why did I have to be listening to it before I had even had my first coffee of the day?
Sadness aside, I can’t quit Murderbot! I’m excited to continue on with their story.
