A murderous android discovers itself in All Systems Red, a tense science fiction adventure by Martha Wells that interrogates the roots of consciousness through Artificial Intelligence.


"As a heartless killing machine, I was a complete failure."

In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.

But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn’t a primary concern.

On a distant planet, a team of scientists are conducting surface tests, shadowed by their Company-supplied ‘droid — a self-aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module, and refers to itself (though never out loud) as “Murderbot.” Scornful of humans, all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it is.

But when a neighboring mission goes dark, it's up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth.

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“I’ve heard about this series and finally got a chance to get started with it. I’m definitely going to be continuing on and reading the rest of the Murderbot Diaries. I loved this book! It wasn’t a long read but also didn’t feel like I was missing anything for it being a novella. I read it on kindle and listened with audible and felt like the audio book was great too. Super happy to finally be reading this series!”
