Fugitive Telemetry

Fugitive Telemetry book coverFugitive Telemetry is the newest release in The Murderbot Diaries series by Martha Wells. This series is honestly just a lot of fun. I did find out/realize that this is technically the sixth book in the series as Network Effect is considered a standalone novel, so despite it being a fantastic Murderbot adventure, it isn’t included in the series as progressing the overall story of Murderbot. This means the series itself now has six novellas, which are quick and fun reads, and one longer book to keep the fun going.

Is it weird to say a series called Murderbot is fun? Not at all if you are familiar with the story, or rather the character, that is Murderbot.

Fugitive Telemetry takes place on Preservation Station and our not-so-friendly Murderbot finds itself in the middle of a murder investigation where it must interact with humans to solve the mystery.

Basically, this installment is like a Sherlock Holmes episode but with Murderbot. It is an overall solid entry to the series that will leave you once again wanting more. If this is the case, the Murderbot short story “Home: Habitat, Range, Niche, Territory” that was originally a pre-order bonus for Network Effect was recently made available at Tor.com. Read it at your leisure. I, for one, hope this series continues for a long time and will be happy with as many Murderbot adventures Martha Wells will give us.

Happy Reading.
