Our Murderbot remains ever capable of combat intelligence, but not only does it continue to struggle with social norms, it also now must make decisions for itself, a thrilling but terrifying experience for the newly emancipated SecUnit.
Sometimes you find a book that's just about you, about the things you love and the longing in your heart and the fears that consume you at night, and Ballad is of all that for me.
The Darkest Part of the Forest seems brief as a stand-alone novel, but it's packed full of events, action, and twists, traipsing all over the fictional town of Fairfold, through the woods, and down below the Faerie hill.
When I got the hankering to reread The Rook, I thought I'd give it a review this time.
High jinks rule the day throughout The Death of the Necromancer. The narrative comes packed with every aspect Victorian-era criminal life has to offer, plus necromancy.
Only seven chapters long, 'All Systems Red' moves along at a snappy pace, following the tale of Murderbot, an angry, dismissive robot learning how to deal with autonomy and other people during crisis. Can relate.

I dust my hands of this nonsense.
A swift, fun read with plenty of twists and surprises, cunning strategic moves, and touching moments between characters.
