The hit danmei/Boys' Love novel series from China (also known as BAB) officially released in English for the first time! In this modern tale with a sci-fi edge, an elite young man with a dark side develops a deep, aggressive relationship with his former doctor. (By the author of The Husky and His White Cat Shizun and Remnants of Filth.)
From the outside, He Yu seems to have everything going for him: he's handsome, rich, and smart. But beneath his perfect facade, he's hiding a dark secret-one that makes him a slumbering threat to the people around him. After spending years abroad, he enrolls in film school to pursue the girl of his dreams, Xie Xue...but that forces him to deal with her overprotective older brother, the man He Yu hoped he'd never see again.
Xie Qingcheng, an icy man of subdued emotion, was once He Yu's doctor, and is the only person who knows He Yu's terrible secret. He Yu swears not to let his past with this man get in the way of his feelings for Xie Xue, but he soon finds himself drawn into a tangled web of intrigue and violence that involves both of the Xie siblings. As a sprawling conspiracy sucks in He Yu, he must confront his own grudges and face new truths-including his own feelings for Xie Qingcheng, which warp into a fixation much darker than what he feels for the man's sister.
The Seven Seas English-language edition will include exclusive, all-new covers and interior illustrations.
