Emissary by Jonathan Davison

Book Description

May 4, 2012
When Dr Trehearn Culver is awoken from cryogenic stasis only to find the rest of his colleagues have mysteriously died, he becomes the sole survivor aboard the ‘Emissary’, a vast star ship on a mission to colonise a far off planet. Battling his solitude and compelled to carry on his mission to appease his only companion, Adraste, the ship’s ‘thinking computer’, Trehearn travels down a road of scientific research and ethically questionable experimentation.
Believing himself to be the only hope of rekindling his species that have reduced themselves to near destruction, Trehearn’s genial aptitude and tireless efforts look to have achieved the impossible, but then even the best laid plans can be doomed for failure.

Review –
I enjoyed the first half of this story the most and didn’t see the twist coming so that made it even better. This is a first-rate piece of Science Fiction and shows the relationship between humans and a thinking computer.  Well worth the read,
