The Mad Scientist’s Daughter is the heartbreaking story of the journey from childhood to adulthood, with an intriguing science fictional twist.
There’s never been anyone – or anything – quite like Finn.
He looks, and acts human, though he has no desire to be. He was programmed to assist his owners, and performs his duties to perfection. A billion-dollar construct, his primary task is to tutor Cat.
When the government grants rights to the ever-increasing robot population, however, Finn struggles to find his place in the world
This book has definitely been on a lot of peoples WoW I think haha. It sounds really good and I love that this book it toted as a sci-fi about a robot with emotions, for some reason it just really reminds of Frankenstein. I did enjoy Clarke’s The Assassin’s Curse so I’m definitely up for reading more of her works (while I wait for book 2 of The Assassin’s Curse)
Also, the ARC is up on Netgalley for anyone interested.
