Martha Wells's Hugo, Nebula, Alex, and Locus Award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling series, The Murderbot Diaries, comes to a thrilling conclusion in Exit Strategy.

Murderbot wasn’t programmed to care. So, its decision to help the only human who ever showed it respect must be a system glitch, right?

Having traveled the width of the galaxy to unearth details of its own murderous transgressions, as well as those of the GrayCris Corporation, Murderbot is heading home to help Dr. Mensah—its former owner (protector? friend?)—submit evidence that could prevent GrayCris from destroying more colonists in its never-ending quest for profit.

But who’s going to believe a SecUnit gone rogue?

And what will become of it when it’s caught?

"I love Murderbot!" —Ann Leckie

My only complaint with these is they're novellas and there aren't enough! I love these books. Lively plot, snappy dialog and great characters. Absolutely worth a read or two

“I’m your Mother’s pet security consultant” Life is not a dramatic serial entertainment, but you can learn a lot about emotions from them. Being human means making choices that might kill you. Being more human means ethics plays a part in things; that there are more than just two choices. And, being human means caring for and about people, even if it might kill you in doing so. These short books about the evolution of Murderbot are chapters in the life of an augmented Pinocchio type who is halfway there from robot to human. This is the last of the series so far, and even though I’m reading them out of order I get it, and am enjoying Martha Wells’ snarky prose. Highly Recommended 5/5 [disclaimer: I received this book from the library system and chose to read and review it]

I had a great time with this newest installment in the Murderbot Diaries series. After reading the previous three installments in the series, I knew that I was going to have to read about Murderbot's further adventures just as soon as I could. This is a novella length piece that could easily be read in a single evening. I do think that this series is best read in order since this newest entry touched on things that happened in previous adventures quite often. This story was everything that I had hoped it would be. Everything comes full circle in the series with Murderbot working to help Dr. Mensah who we met in the first installment. As soon as the SecUnit finds out that Dr. Mensah is in trouble, immediate plans are made to get close and offer assistance. Things are pretty tense at times and there is a whole lot of excitement that had me at the edge of my seat. I loved seeing how much Murderbot has grown over the course of the series. There are feelings in this book. Real feelings. Everyone's favorite SecUnit seems to be having a whole lot of feelings for an anti-social cyborg. There is a lot more interaction with others that is done quite willingly and there are times with the SecUnit is willing to self-sacrifice if necessary. I love Murderbot's internal dialogue and really appreciated its sense of humor. I would recommend this series to others. I think that this book had a great blend of excitement and action. I am so glad that I have had the chance to go along with Murderbot as it tries to find its place in the world. I will definitely be reading any future books in the series. I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library.

Ahoy there me mateys! This be the last book of a quartet. While I try to post no spoilers, if ye haven’t read the previous three 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! Basically I have been avidly waiting for this book ever since I finished rogue protocol. Hell, I wanted all four of them as soon as I had finished the first novella. I read this wonderful conclusion and immediately wanted to reread them all. Murderbot has captured me crabby ol’ heart. Murderbot rocks! In this installment Murderbot’s cover is truly blown and yet it makes a choice to go right into enemy territory. Favourite characters return. Snark ensues. Murderbot continues to evolve and grow in wondrous ways. Tropes are played with. Episodes of Sanctuary Moon are consumed. Murderbot interacts with a new and surprising robot in new and surprising ways. Awesomeness abounds . . . 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: I want a full length novel of the further adventures of Murderbot!! I need it now!! And an “I love Murderbot!” teeshirt. And a fancy edition of all four novellas in one stunning collection. I would make them meself but a) I don’t own the copyright; and b) I have no artistic talent besides. Arrr!
