Description
"With the scope of Dune and the rousing action of Independence Day, this near-future trilogy is the first chance for English-speaking readers to experience this multple-award-winning phenemonenon from China's most beloved science fiction author.

All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead"--
