Tres ebooks de Cassandra Rose Clarke en oferta

Dentro de la promoción 12 Days of Christmas de Angry Robot hoy le toca el turno a Cassandra Rose Clarke. Si vais a la tienda de la editorial y usáis el código "tinsel" podréis comprar (en formato electrónico sin DRM) sus tres novelas por una libra cada una. Éstas son las sinopsis de los libros en oferta:

"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.
The Assassin's Curse 
Ananna of the Tanarau abandons ship when her parents try to marry her off to an allying pirate clan. But that only prompts the scorned clan to send an assassin after her. And when Ananna faces him down one night, armed with magic she doesn't really know how to use, she accidentally activates a curse binding them together. 
To break the curse, Ananna and the assassin must complete three impossible tasks—all while grappling with evil wizards, floating islands, haughty manticores, runaway nobility, strange magic, and the growing romantic tension between them.
The Pirate's Wish
After setting out to break the curse that binds them together, the pirate Ananna and the assassin Naji find themselves stranded on an enchanted island in the north with nothing but a sword, their wits, and the secret to breaking the curse: complete three impossible tasks. With the help of their friend Marjani and a rather unusual ally, Ananna and Naji make their way south again, seeking what seems to be beyond their reach. 
Unfortunately, Naji has enemies from the shadowy world known as the Mists, and Ananna must still face the repercussions of going up against the Pirate Confederation. Together, Naji and Ananna must break the curse, escape their enemies — and come to terms with their growing romantic attraction. 
The sequel to The Assassin's Curse.
