"I am incredibly happy this was a full length book. I couldn't put it down. Possibly the best book in the series. The action continues to be well written. There were great twists and turns. A beloved character returned in the best way! And the compassion and care shared between characters old and new was refreshing and lovable. This book is a serotonin boost."
"I love all of these books, such fun, quick reads "
"A 6 hour climax! You Must read all 4 other murderbot books before this guy, as it builds up on everything that has come before it (and one book after it) to give you an amazing 6 hours of action and emotional tramma. A from ship raids to taking a planet hostage, one thing just happens after another in this thrilling tale."
