After some internal discussions, we have decided to place The Legend of Sun Knight on temporary hold so that our team can kickstart a new project that we are very, very excited for.
Without further ado, we proudly unveil our new project: The Lovers’ Sabers (鸳鸯刀) by Louis Cha!
Some quick background: Louis Cha is a famous Chinese wuxia (martial arts) novelist who has written 15 novels and novellas, including works like The Legend of the Condor Heroes and The Smiling, Proud Wanderer, which have been made into movies and TV shows, inspiring writers everywhere. In fact, Lolidragon from the 1/2 Prince series had borrowed her handle from a character of the same name in The Return of the Condor Heroes. Most of his works already have official and unofficial translations, so we are glad to be able to claim one of his few remaining works for ourselves.
The Lovers’ Sabers is a story of a pair of precious blades which through various circumstances, end up in the hands of two couples. Because of this, they are hunted down by government officials who want the treasures for their own regime. It’s a deep and touching tale filled with conflict, romance, deceit, and comedy. Our staff have all enjoyed previewing the translation drafts we have so far, and we are thrilled to be able to bring this work to our readers.
We are scheduled to release the first three chapters in April, with the first one coming sometime next week. Stay tuned!
