About the Book

Service Model

Murderbot meets REDSHIRTS in a delightfully humorous tale of robotic murder from the Hugo-nominated author of ELDER RACE and CHILDREN OF TIME.

To fix the world they must first break it, further.

Humanity is a dying breed, utterly reliant on artificial labor and service.

When a domesticated robot gets a nasty little idea downloaded into its core programming, they murder their owner. The robot discovers they can also do something else they never did before: They can run away. Fleeing the household, they enter a wider world they never knew existed, where the age-old hierarchy of humans at the top is disintegrating into ruins and an entire robot ecosystem devoted to human well-being is having to find a new purpose.

Sometimes all it takes is a nudge to overcome the limits of your programming.
