Thanks to the tender care of a spaceship captain's daughter, an astronavigational computer achieves sentience. Two hundred years and an artificial body later, Darling, the ex-machine, is off in search of a dead artist, a living artwork, and the forces behind a mystery that spans the universe. Accompanied by an assassin who lives only to serve her alien gods, Darling will confront the Maker and perhaps answer the question: Can a copy capture the soul of the original?
A fastpaced space opera, Evolution's Darling is also a meditation on the nature of individuality, artificial intelligence, and the power of memory by one of science fiction's most exciting new voices.
