I love Murderbot! --Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice The Murderbot series is a heart-pounding thriller that never lets up, but it's also one of the most humane portraits of a nonhuman I've ever read. Come for the gunfights on other planets, but stay for the finely drawn portrait of a deadly robot whose smartass goodness will give you hope for the future of humanity. --Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous Clever, inventive, brutal when it needs to be, and compassionate without ever being sentimental. --Kate Elliott, author of the Spirit Walker trilogy Endearing, funny, action-packed, and murderous. --Kameron Hurley, author of The Stars are Legion Not only a fun, fast-paced space-thriller, but also a sharp, sometimes moving character study that will resonate with introverts even if they're not lethal AI machines. --Malka Older, author of Infomocracy We are all a little bit Murderbot. --NPR Wells gives depth to a rousing but basically familiar action plot by turning it into the vehicle by which SecUnit engages with its own rigorously denied humanity. --Publishers Weekly starred review I already can't wait for the next one. --The Verge Meet your favorite depressed A.I. since Marvin. --B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog A great kick-off for a continuing series. --Locus Wells imbued Murderbot with extraordinary humanity, and while this is a fun read, don't make the mistake of thinking it's not a profound one. --LA Times PRAISE FOR MARTHA WELLS Martha Wells writes fantasy the way it was meant to be--poignant, evocative, and astonishing. Prepare to be captivated 'til the sun comes up. --Kameron Hurley, author of The Mirror Empire and God's War The Cloud Roads has wildly original world-building, diverse and engaging characters, and a thrilling adventure plot. It's that rarest of fantasies: fresh and surprising, with a story that doesn't go where ten thousand others have gone before. I can't wait for my next chance to visit the Three Worlds! --N. K. Jemisin, author of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms Breathtakingly surprising and fun. For readers who missed earlier entry points to this delightful series, now is the time to get on board. --The New York Times on The Edge of Worlds That rarity--a completely unique and stunning fantasy world. --Hugo Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear on The Edge of Worlds
