Emily Eternal Kindle Edition
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.
Her beloved human race is screwed, and so is Emily. That is, until she finds a potential answer buried deep in the human genome that may save them all. But not everyone is convinced Emily has the best solution--or the best intentions. Before her theory can be tested, the lab is brutally attacked, and Emily's servers are taken hostage.
Narrowly escaping, 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. Soon it becomes clear not just the species is at stake, but also that which makes us most human.
Innovative...A quirky mix of melancholy, irreverence, and romance.-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Emily Eternal is nothing I've ever read before. This was such a unique tale. I raced through it becuase Emily's story ecxited me so much. I absolutely loved her character and I had to remind myself from time to time that she is not a real person.
I would recommend this book to everyone who loved a good sci-fi.

The problem being that certain groups want to apprehend this Consciousness to serve their own purpose.
I find the concept of Consciousness being conscious of itself quite amusing. In many ways I am already primed to enjoy such a story as this one. However, I do feel that the author hasn't quite attained a level of authorship that would cause me to feel riveted by either the story or his penmanship. One moment we are being introduced to the concept of “Emily” and then far too soon, without sufficient deepening of plot, raids take place and persons associated with Emily are killed. Then Emily is fleeing with 2 friends, if one will allow such a term.
We later learn that there was in fact a second version of Emily known as Emily-2 who tries to thwart the efforts of Emily because, unlike Emily who has, by entering into the minds of humans, learnt of the more loving side of being human, only wants to control – not get involved in wishy-washy humane concepts.
I don't believe in mirroring every aspect of a book and therefore I will not tell you how Emily Eternal concludes. I suspect, indeed hope, that many of you will not be as pedantic and analytical as I am and therefore will not let the occasional inconsistency of plot spoil your enjoyment of Emily should you decide to purchase Emily Eternal.
Truly inventive, this presents some heavy sci-fi concepts in a highly entertaining and accessible way, with the best non-human protagonist I've read in a long time. Excellent read.
