Series Info:
A stand-alone novel.


"Cat, this is Finn. He's going to be your tutor."

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 now is to tutor Cat. As she grows into a beautiful young woman, Finn is her guardian, her constant companion... and more.

But when the government grants rights to the ever-increasing robot population, however, Finn struggles to find his place in the world.

Following her acclaimed Young Adult debut for Strange Chemistry, The Assassin's Curse, the very talented Cassandra Rose Clarke moves on to more adult themes, in a heartbreaking story of love, loss... and robots.

File Under: Science Fiction [ Constant Companion | Finn X | Sentient Rights | Hot Tin Roof ]


Praise and Reviews

"Cassandra Rose Clarke has delivered a novel that is brave enough to take on one of the largest issue’s confronting all of us today - just what exactly it means to be human in a time when the definition of such seems to alter almost daily in the face of whirlwind technological change. The Mad Scientist’s Daughter is a haunting, memorable, and very original love story, told in an alluringly graceful prose."
- Peter LaSalle, author of Tell Borges If You See Him: Tales of Contemporary Somnambulism

"Fantastic character building and a truly classic love story make The Mad Scientist’s Daughter a literary classic for lovers of both genre fiction and classic romance."
- Catherine Russell, The Functional Nerds

"One of the most heart-clenching and gut-wrenching love stories I have ever read ... Clarke's exploration of human nature versus science versus faith versus the disingenuous youth are the reasons this book needs to be read and loved by everyone."– Open Book Society
