Wang Tong couldn’t wait to live his college life - girls, parties, and the dorm life - everything he had ever dreamed of. But, instead of a letter of admission to the college, he had received a ticket to the planet Norton and a contract with the Confederation as a space settler. Soon after his arrival, the Zerg overran the planet and obliterated its defenses in a matter of moments. What awaited Tong on Norton was more than just an unbearable environment - its gravity alone was five-times stronger than earth - there were also swarms of bugs, constant hunger, thirst, and desolation...
Venture into the Tempest of The Battlefield, unlock the secrets within the mysterious space crystals, and meet the legendary Blade Warriors and the potent sword combat tactic: "Ultimate Tactics of the Blade: 256 Genome Nuclear Force".
An honest and humble low-tier robot and a ghost with a mouth full of nonsense both teamed up with Wang Tong in a fight for survival against all odds.
The Tempest Trilogy consists of three compelling and interconnected epic adventures of three protagonists. Each of the three stories is set in a different location in space: the Tempest of the Steel Mecha is in the Earth-Moon System, the Tempest of the Battlefield is in the Solar System, and the Tempest of the Stellar War is in the Galaxy. In each of the books, you will find the ambition, innocence, and passion of the young protagonist and the sacrifice he had to endure along in his journey. Not only is the book full of heroic deeds of a single person, you the reader, like the protagonist, will also discover the value of teamwork and friendship at the end.
I have constructed a fantasy world where even the seemingly insignificant character will have one or two moments to shine, where love, friendship, and family are interwoven with each other to form a complicated yet fascinating tapestry of war. Within this world, our protagonist embarks on an enthralling journey to become a hero and the champion of the world.
I hope every reader will enjoy this unique science fiction world that I have created. Every bit of enjoyment I can bring to you is the best encouragement and reward for me.View More
I was enthralled when I first received the contract with Qidian International to work on the title “Tempest of the Battlefield”. Over the course of the few months that followed, Qidian International had proven to be more than just a professional team in the IP industry; they also went above and beyond to help me further my skills in order to provide the readers a more accurate translation and a more enjoyable experience while reading the novel. To that end, I want to say thank you to the team at the Qidian International and to my editor.
When I was in high school, aside from girls, the other two most talked about topics were science fictions and Wuxia. Being captivated by two drastically different worlds, we often pondered questions such as, “What would happen if a master of martial arts traveled through space and time into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon? And what would happen if a Qi cultivator got enlisted by the Terran Federation as a space marine to fight in an interstellar war against the Zerg-like creatures in Starcraft?”
Almost one and half decades later, we have Lucasfilm to answer the first question — sort of — in their blockbuster hit “Star Wars — Rogue One”, featuring Donnie Yen as the blind Chirrut Îmwe. And today, through the imaginative lenses of the author, Qidian International brought us the answer to the second question, and more! Not only you will be engrossed in the protagonist’s epic journey to power, but you will also be treated to a riveting world of martial arts and hard-core science fiction, laced with mythical elements of ancient Chinese cultivation, and, all of that was backdropped with power struggles of major factions in an interstellar war.
As translators, we were mindful of this unique aspect of the novel, and a lot of extra care has been given to preserve the flavors from both genres. To that end, the translation process was, albeit difficult, extremely rewarding.
Finally, we hope that you will enjoy the end product and join us in the adventure in the world of the Tempest!View More
First and foremost, I’d like to say thank you to the author for his brilliant ideas and his fascinating storyline, and of course, two thumbs up to our team of translators and editors for the amazing efforts of making this happen. I’m truly honored for being able to play a part in this project.
As I was going through the original chapters while working on the translations, immediately, I was drawn to the spectacular universe and lively characters in the story, which also drove me to present the same excitement in English to our fellow readers.
Rest assured, I won’t be spoiling anything here. However, be prepared for a thrilling galactical journey, I’m sure you’ll know what I meant as you read on.
Thank you for supporting Tempest of the Battlefield and have a pleasant read!View More
