Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: Artificial Condition

Monday, May 24, 2021

Funny, heart-pounding, poignant and astonishing, the second installation in Martha Wells' "Murderbot Diaries" series has Murderbot seeking answers about its mysterious past.

It has a dark past—one in which a number of humans were killed. A past that caused it to christen itself “Murderbot.” But it has only vague memories of the action that spawned that title, and it wants to know more.

Teaming up with a Research Transport vessel named ART, Murderbot heads to the mining facility where it went rogue.
