Read the award-winning, critically acclaimed, multi-million-copy-selling science-fiction phenomenon – now a Netflix Original Series from the creators of Game of Thrones.

Imagine the universe as a forest, patrolled by numberless and nameless predators. In this forest, stealth is survival – any civilisation that reveals its location is prey.

Earth has. Now the predators are coming.

Crossing light years, the Trisolarians will reach Earth in four centuries' time. But the sophons, their extra-dimensional agents and saboteurs, are already here. Only the individual human mind remains immune to their influence.

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 from human and alien alike. Three of the Wallfacers are influential statesmen and scientists, but the fourth is a total unknown.

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.

Reviews for Dark Forest (#2 Remembrance of Earths Past)

'A milestone in Chinese science fiction' New York Times. 'The best kind of science fiction' Kim Stanley Robinson. 'Vivid, imaginative and rooted in cutting-edge science ... Cixin stands at the top tier of speculative fiction in any language' David Brin. 'A marvellous melange of awe-inspiring scientific concepts, clever plotting and quirky yet plausible characters, all conveyed in in a plain style capable of signalling hidden depths' The Times. 'Full of surprises and wondrous ideas ... The depth of feeling here is extraordinary. Emotion and science brilliantly co-exist. To call the vision grand and ambitious seems a ridiculous understatement ... I await the conclusion, Death's End, in the spring with enormous anticipation. I have no doubt that when this trilogy is complete we will have a masterpiece on our hands' For Winters Nights. 'Hauntingly gentle in its delivery and gorgeous in its own wondrous atmosphere, The Dark Forest is a quiet slice of lovely science fiction ... it's bursting with character and ingenuity' Starburst magazine. 'Chinese SF has been neglected in the wider world for far too long' Interzone.
