Ebooks en oferta: iD y vN, de Madeline Ashby

Hoy Angry Robot nos ofrece en oferta dos ebooks de Madeline Ashby: iD y vN. Se pueden adquirir en la tienda de la editorial (usando el cupón "tinsel") por una libra esterlina (unos 1,20€) cada uno,  en formato digital sin DRM. El año pasado vN fue una de mis novelas favoritas y, además, tuve la suerte de entrevistar a la autora. Esta es una muy buena oportunidad para conocer su obra si aún no lo habéis hecho.

Éstas son las sinopsis de las novelas:

vN (Book I of The Machine Dinasty)
Amy Peterson is a von Neumann machine, a self-replicating humanoid robot. 
For the past five years, she has been grown slowly as part of a mixed organic/synthetic family. She knows very little about her android mother’s past, so when her grandmother arrives and attacks her mother, little Amy wastes no time: she eats her alive. 
Now she carries her malfunctioning granny as a partition on her memory drive, and she’s learning impossible things about her clade’s history – like the fact that the failsafe that stops all robots from harming humans has failed… Which means that everyone wants a piece of her, some to use her as a weapon, others to destroy her.
iD (Book II of The Machine Dinasty)
Javier is a self-replicating humanoid on a journey of redemption. 
Javier’s quest takes him from Amy’s island, where his actions have devastating consequences for his friend, toward Mecha where he will find either salvation… or death.

  1. Estoy con el primero, y coincido totalmente contigo que el prólogo es un cuento genial. A ver cómo evoluciona la cosa.
