Mutually assured destruction has led to decades of peace between humanity and the Trisolarans, but a new force is awakening and this delicate balance can no longer hold…

Half a century after the Doomsday Battle, the uneasy balance of Dark Forest Deterrence keeps the Trisolaran invaders at bay. Earth enjoys unprecedented prosperity due to the infusion of Trisolaran knowledge. With human science advancing daily and the Trisolarans adopting Earth culture, it seems that the two civilizations will soon be able to co-exist peacefully as equals without the terrible threat of mutually assured annihilation. But the peace has also made humanity complacent.

Cheng Xin, an aerospace engineer from the early twenty-first century, awakens from hibernation in this new age. She brings with her knowledge of a long-forgotten program dating from the beginning of the Trisolar Crisis, and her very presence may upset the delicate balance between two worlds. Will humanity reach for the stars or die in its cradle?

Death’s End is the New York Times bestselling conclusion to Cixin Liu’s tour-de-force series that began with The Three-Body Problem.

The War of the Worlds for the twenty-first century . . . Packed with a sense of wonder.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“A meditation on technology, progress, morality, extinction, and knowledge that doubles as a cosmos- in-the-balance thriller.” —NPR
