"Who will be the one to bury mankind, Orwell or Huxley? No need to give your answer so quick. Let's read a story first.
When Lu Bixing, a hipster from the Eighth Galaxy, fell in love with a gangster called B4, he didn't know that his darling muffin was Commodore Lin Jingheng, the commander of Silver Fortress. As they knew each other further, the world changed dramatically: Interstellar pirates invaded the Interstellar Union. The nasty secrets about Eden emerged in front of them. Lu's pedigree was found to be unbelievably mysterious.
But all they wanted was each other, no matter how peculiar the world was around them.
In a sentence, it's a story about conspiracies and murders, gentlemen and villains, love and hatred.
Coming back to the question, the answer is: "Humans are born from belief, die of belief, and reborn from the ashes of belief." "
Don't get discouraged by the sci-fi genre, this novel is accessible to everyone and can be read without any prior scientific knowledge!
