A historical fantasy epic about two war generals who were once close...until dark circumstances ripped them apart.
The empire of Chonghua once produced two young generals who rose to prominence fighting side by side. Mo Xi, reserved in nature, was known for his commanding air and ruthless temperament. His best friend and comrade, Gu Mang, was the complete opposite: as charming as he was clever, he was beloved by his soldiers and the people. That is, until Gu Mang shocked the empire by turning traitor to serve an enemy nation.
Years later, a feral Gu Mang has returned, his mind broken. The public demands his death, and no one is assumed more hungry for vengeance against him than Mo Xi. But when Mo Xi stays his hand, the question must be asked—what is the true relationship between the pair? And what past secrets hide beneath Mo Xi’s icy exterior and Gu Mang’s tortured psyche?
This Chinese fantasy (xianxia) epic built around the desire between two men (danmei) is the newest hit set in the universe of The Husky and His White Cat Shizun. The Seven Seas English-language edition will include exclusive, all-new covers and interior illustrations from artist St.
