This was a fun book, though I will say it felt a little disconnected from the larger timeline of Murderbot books—like I wasn’t sure where it took place, if it was supposed to be before or after the events of Network Effect, which raised more questions for me than maybe it should have. 

But this had all the hallmarks of a good Murderbot book, with tight and effective action sequences and lots of fun Murderbot internal monologuing. It just felt a little less grounded than the other books, which I think posed a challenge for some of the greater questions that the series has been asking up until this point. But definitely lots of fun!
