Here is the catalog copy for Death’s End (minus spoilers for The Dark Forest):
With The Three-Body Problem, English-speaking readers got their first chance to experience the multiple-award-winning and bestselling Three-Body Trilogy by China’s most beloved science fiction author, Cixin Liu. Three-Body was released to great acclaim including coverage in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. It was also named a finalist for the Nebula Award, making it the first translated novel to be nominated for a major SF award since Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities in 1976.
In January of 2016, this epic trilogy will conclude with Death’s End, which takes place half a century after the end of the second book in the Three-Body trilogy, The Dark Forest, out in the U.S. on July 7, 2015. How has humanity answered the threat of the Trisolaran Invasion Fleet? And what outcome would prove the greater threat to humanity’s existence: defeat, or victory? Will humanity reach for the stars or die in its cradle?
