Be ready for a well-developed and intricate post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk universe with a setting that surpasses Lord of the Mysteries in this next novel from Cuttlefish That Loves Diving, the author of Lord of the Mysteries!
Shang Jianyao, our protagonist, is actually insane, or at least that’s what the doctors say. He is one of the few factions still in the postapocalyptic wasteland known as the Ashlands, and he lives in a massive, underground complex owned by Pangu Biology. He acts in baffling, funny, and cunning ways. So, is he truly insane? Probably.
He hopes to preserve the entire human race.
Everyone in the Ashlands believes in something that is intricately connected to this dream: There is a road leading to a new world hidden deep within a specific ruin that is hidden by danger and famine. One merely needs to locate a unique key and unlock that particular door in order to enter the new realm.
There, the earth is abundant, as though honey and milk flow abundantly.
The sun is brilliant as if all the gloom and cold have been swept away.
The populace won’t have to deal with hazards of any kind, including desolation, monsters, illnesses, mutations, and more.
Children and adults alike are joyful there, and everything is going exactly as it should.
That’s the New World, as every Antiquarian, Ruin Hunter, and Historian wandering the Ashlands is aware.
