Cover Art - 'The Mad Scientist's Daughter' (Cassandra Rose Clarke)

 I enjoyed 'The Assassin's Curse' (albeit with some reservations) so I'm looking forward to 'The Mad Scientist's Daughter' already. It's not out until February 2013 though so have some cover art and blurb to be going on with in the meantime... :o)

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.

Angry Robot have pretty much always come up with the goods with their cover art (except perhaps with 'The Hammer and The Blade'...) and it's good to see that this cover proves to be part of the rule rather than the exception. I need to clear the 'Reading Pile' first but like I said, I'm looking forward to reading  'The Mad Scientist's Daughter' when it finally reaches us next year :o)
