    Summary

    The Lord Song has been arrested and executed for treason, his daughter called back to the capital to prove her loyalty. All Talia Song wants is to go back to her library and books, far away from the politics that she finds herself trapped in.

    Calypso Zhao thought all she wanted out of life was to show her loyalty to her land and protect its people. Uncovering a treacherous plot was part and parcel with that.

In a bid to safeguard humanity, four astronauts - and one Embodied Holographic Metaphor - have been sent to the exoplanet Malang to judge whether it can and should host civilization. But does it already?…
