Rogue Protocol is the third entry in Martha Wells's Hugo, Nebula, Alex, and Locus Award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling series, The Murderbot Diaries.

Starring a human-like android who keeps getting sucked back into adventure after adventure, though it just wants to be left alone, away from humanity and small talk.

Who knew being a heartless killing machine would present so many moral dilemmas?

Sci-fi’s favorite antisocial A.I. is back on a mission. The case against the too-big-to-fail GrayCris Corporation is floundering, and more importantly, authorities are beginning to ask more questions about where Dr. Mensah's SecUnit is.

And Murderbot would rather those questions went away. For good.

  • Wonderful series

    A great protagonist and fantastic writing
  • Good not great

    By Mr. Art Vandalay
    The first two books in the series I loved, this one, not as much. I still enjoyed it, but the plot was built around, just setting up the next book. This book had no direction and or any real purpose for happening. Murderbot’s character and human persona grew, but not enough to warrant this pitstop, being told. Highlights of the book were few, the introduction of Miki’s character made the book, just like Art did in the second one. I hope the 4th book, will expand on Murderbot’s growth as a character, as he finds out what it is to be part human. Low points on the book, would have to be where the story took place. In this genre, writers have to create make believe locations and technology and weave them together seamlessly. While making the reader understand something, that they don’t have first have knowledge of. In this book, the author fails to do that. I was forced to reread many passages just to figure out what “diggers” were, what they did and what they might look like for example.
  • Wonderful books.

    Love the books. Hate the price/length ratio. So I bought one to see the author compensated and checked the rest out at the library.
  • Page turning fun

    By Leapyear1958
    In the current day of AI this series humanizes the potential future in a brilliant way. Great thrillers!
  • And now for something completely different

    By rokinrev
    “I hated caring about stuff. But apparently once you start you can’t stop.” I love The Murderbot Diaries. The only problem I am having is reading these out of order. Martha Wells’ series of stories about Murderbot are snarky, sometimes in questionable taste, but a lot of fun. No one takes Augmented Humans like her completely seriously; which leaves them “scratching their programming” when something new and different comes along. Makes you wonder how Murderbot was programmed originally and what “flipped the switch”? Here she makes “friends” with a “pet robot” Miki, (who makes me think of the song “Tomorrow “) and she hates “pet robots”. IMHO, Murderbot hates that she’s part human because it means she has to care...kind of a Catch-22. Highly recommended 5/5
  • Nice Novella But...

    By Bubba Bill Jones
    The author chose to tell the story of the murderbot in the form of a connected series of novellas instead of one large novel. I can get behind this idea since all the novellas are well written page turners, but they were all released in the same year and should have just been published as a single collection. This one is not quite as good as the previous novella - ART made that story, but it is gratifying to watch the murderbot develop as a character. If you enjoy novellas and short stories, this is definitely worth a read as this is quality in that genre.
