Summary

Meet Emily - she can solve advanced mathematical problems, unlock the mind's deepest secrets and even fix your truck's air con. But, unfortunately, she can't restart the sun.

She's an artificial consciousness, designed in a lab to help humans process trauma, which is particularly helpful when the sun begins to die five billion years before scientists agreed it was supposed to.

So, her beloved human race is screwed, and so is Emily. That is, until she finds a potential answer buried deep in the human genome. But before her solution can be tested, her lab is brutally attacked, and Emily is forced to go on the run with two human companions - college student Jason and small-town Sheriff Mayra.

As the sun's death draws near, Emily and her friends must race against time to save humanity. But before long it becomes clear that it's not only the species at stake but also that which makes us most human.

Fascinating

A fascinating and very different view of AI and what it means to be human. Loved it!

Enjoyable and Annoying

The synopsis of this book sounded intriguing and it certainly was that, I am not sure if it was the authors intention to make Emily such a pretentious character or not, at the time of a mass extinction of the human race to be taking morality lessons from an “artificial consciousness” was quite frankly ludicrous and I almost wished Emily 2 plans had come to fruition, maybe my moral compass is skewed 😳 that aside the story was enjoyable and engaging, I found the ending a bit trite and simple but it does leave itself open to continue, the narration was excellent and I could listen to that voice all day long (I nearly did too) a good story elevated by better narration and maybe more to come
