Into the Twilight is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi novel by Michael Segedy. The book opens with Ike, a superintelligent advanced AI who relates the story of Jacob Ladder and Emma Fine, two twenty-two-year-olds who wake up after two hundred years of suspended life. Jacob and Emma find themselves in a post-apocalyptic world where the human race has been almost wiped out, with a few remaining evolved humans residing inside the protected dome of a colony called Sumpseris. As they acclimatize themselves to their new home and environment, Jacob and Emma revisit the painful memories of their pasts. Additionally, they learn that humans face an existential threat of the end of humanity, and a small black hole named M-16 is headed directly toward Earth. With two opposing factions offering different solutions, can humanity find a way to survive?
Filled with philosophical musings, metaphysics, and some fascinating theoretical scientific concepts, Into the Twilight is a captivating read that gives readers a lot to ponder. Author Michael Segedy's enthralling character-driven sci-fi drama asks a vital question: "What does it mean to be and remain human"? With increasing advancements and dependence on technology, how will sentience be defined in relation to futuristic AI tech, and how far will humans push themselves in their pursuit of immortality? Segedy's gripping narrative asks these questions and much more through a story that follows two young humans who unwittingly find themselves trapped in a time and place that bears no resemblance to their own. Any sci-fi lover will enjoy Into the Twilight, as did I.
