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. Emily Eternal feels like hope in the face of the end of the world'CultureFly Emily is an artificial consciousness, designed in a lab to help humans process trauma, which is particularly helpful when the sun begins to die 5 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. PRAISE FOR EMILY ETERNAL 'A visionary work of science fiction' Blake Crouch, author of DARK MATTER 'A top-class, high-tech thriller. Emily is a true heroine: warm, funny, brilliant and more human than a lot of humans. You'll be cheering for her to the end' Daily Mail 'Remarkably clever and engrossing . . . It's hard not to be won over by Emily's benign narrative voice and thrilled by the race-against-time plot, even as the book explores weighty questions of self and soul' Financial Times 'Sparsely drawn, but vivid and likeable . . . M.G. Wheaton writes his lead character with charming warmth' SFX 'Captivating . . . a unique portrayal of the end of the world and a taste of what comes after it. If this is all we see of Emily it will be a bittersweet disappointment' British Fantasy Society
