Publisher's Summary

The Trisolarian fleet has left their home world and will arrive in four centuries' time. But the Sophons and their extradimensional emissaries are already here. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a last-ditch defence that grants four individuals almost absolute power to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection.

Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

    "A great second book"

    A fantastic extension to the Three Body Problem. An brilliantly constructed story. Can wait to start for final in the series.

    The narrator is even growing on me.

    "Sweeping near-future Sci- Fi"

    Epic in scope and richly developed characters add to a swashbucklingly believable sci-fi plot that had me binging to finish.

    "Even better than the first book"

    This book is the pinnacle of hard sci-fi. The ideas are revolutionary, the creation is unique, and Bruno Roubicek is a fantastic narrator, well suited to the novel.

    Read it if you liked The Three Body Problem. I look forward to listening to the third book.

    "long winded but just about enjoyable"

    took a while to get used to the new narrator, but he did a better job all told. pretty heavy going for me, but had to see where the story led.

    "Interesting sci-fi from a Chinese author."

    I thoroughly enjoyed this sci-fi from a different culture. It brought a different angle to the genre, for me. My only difficulty was remembering the different character's names. I managed to follow the storyline well enough.
    Bruno Roubicek's narration was excellent, minimising my inability with the names.
    I will listen to the others in this trilogy, but don't understand why the first book has been unavailable to listen to almost since I came across it. Hopefully this will be corrected soon, and certainly before the third book is released to listen to.

    "Great story, didn't rate the reader. "

    Very enjoyable although I would have much preferred Luke Daniels (reader of the first book in the series) to read this one. I found this reader to be a monotonous, Luke bought the first book to life!

    Ein hervorragender Abschluss der Geschichte! Science Fiction, aber auch mehr! Mich begeistert es, wenn ein Autor unerwartete Aspekte und Wendungen enthüllt.
