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.

Really enjoying the series so far. Grounded in science yet isn't afraid to border the surreal. Some likeable characters tho I think one or two could have been fleshed out a little more. Some great ideas in this one.

We really need the final part in the UK. and narrated by Bruno Roubicek. I've heard a sample of the US copy of Deaths End and the narrator, P.J Ochlan is bloody awful. I don't think I can continue until Bruno does the narration.
