This near-future trilogy is the first chance for English-speaking listeners to experience this multiple-award-winning phenomenon from Cixin Liu, China's most beloved science fiction author. In The Dark Forest, Earth is reeling from the revelation of a coming alien invasion-in just four centuries' time. The aliens' human collaborators may have been defeated, but the presence of the sophons, the subatomic particles that allow Trisolaris instant access to all human information, means that Earth's defense plans are totally exposed to the enemy. Only the human mind remains a secret. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a daring plan that grants four men enormous resources to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection from Earth and Trisolaris alike. Three of the Wallfacers are influential statesmen and scientists, but the fourth is a total unknown. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer and sociologist, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

Professional reviews

"After discovering that an alien race is coming to eradicate humankind, the world prepares for a battle that is more than four centuries in the future. A narrator change in an audiobook series is always tricky, but the decision to cast P.J. Ochlan instead of Luke Daniels, narrator of the first book, proves to work. Ochlan provides a strong and determined delivery of the narrative while maintaining consistency across a host of dynamic and curious characters. Additionally, he captures the increasing tension in a controlled performance that adds more suspense to the story and keeps listeners' attention. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
