Artificial Condition is a RT Book Reviews Top Pick!

Artificial Condition by Martha Wells

“Much like the anxiety-ridden but good-hearted Murderbot itself, this series is a delight, carefully balancing snark and other humor without ever concealing (or even really trying to conceal) the real and serious character work and emotional intensity that’s at work here. Wells doesn’t downplay the trauma and existential questions the underpin parts of the story, but also keeps it swift-moving and delightful, partly by respecting those aspects of the story instead of trying to gloss over them. As before, Murderbot makes for a wonderful protagonist and narrative voice, one of the most compelling reluctant heroes science fiction has seen in a while.” — RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars, Top Pick!
