Here tells the tale of Murderbot’s sister, a killer on board a generation ship heading towards a new home…

Well, she’s not really Murderbot’s sister, but it sure reads like it. I have the feeling that Medusa and Murderbot would get along great with one another, each of them swapping stories of how to kill people and who survived better in their own way. I would love to see a combination of Medusa Uploaded with Murderbot, but sadly I don’t think that will happen.

Anyway. Back to the story itself.

This was one of the many new releases that I purchased in that Kindle Ebook Haul of 50+books, and it was money well spent! I loved Medusa, and the unique world that was centered around her. Keep in mind, this is as heavy duty as Game of Thrones in killing off people rapidly, in every chapter I believe, except for Medusa herself. So don’t go getting attached to anyone, because it won’t end well.

The story revolves around a girl who slowly becomes uploaded into Medusa, a being that’s meant to carry thousands of souls. While it’s not a hive mind kind of situation, it’s certainly an interesting one. The generation ship is heading towards a new world, along with its sister ship Titania-of which gets destroyed with the girls parents on board. Things spiral from there, and there are a multitude of murders plotted, committed, and produced. It’s a blood-thirsty tale of revenge, survival of the fittest, and where only the smartest live on.

I highly recommend this to those who loved Murderbot. It’s got the same flair, though there aren’t as many witty remarks, it’s still definitely going to be one of my favorite reads of the year. Medusa Uploaded is sure to be a great way to kill the time, and find some new interesting ways of killing people. At least when it comes to writing fiction.

Until next time,
