Wu Xie’s quiet life of the past five years was interrupted by Jin Wantang’s sudden visit. Jin Wantang unexpectedly knew that the scorpion pattern on the moonstone Wu Xie brought out of the Zhang family’s ancient building was related to Poker-Face’s childhood. In search of clues, Wu Xie went to Nepal and then to Motuo, Tibet, where all kinds of clues related to Poker-Face came one after the other!

As soon as things got out of hand, Wu Xie got Poker-Face’s notes from the lamas at the Jila Temple, and knew the cause and effect of Poker-Face entering the snow-capped mountains that year.

To Wu Xie’s shock, he saw “the limit of the world” in another note—there was another bronze door in the hinterland of the vast snow-capped mountains!

All kinds of people had gathered at the Jila Temple. Was it a coincidence, or deliberately arranged? What did the mysterious scorpion mean? What on earth was “the limit of the world”? Why was Wu Xie the only one who could save the Zhang family? Were the Zhang family members from Hong Kong credible? Were they plotting evil, or accomplishing their mission?

This is a brand-new journey. Wu Xie and Fatty follow Poker-Face’s steps to enter the hinterland of the snow-capped mountains. This time, can Wu Xie solve all the mysteries?


The author said that this should be read after Volumes 1-8 of the main Daomu Biji storyline. I’m just calling it “Daomu Biji Vol. 9” so it’s easier to keep track of on novel updates. The story is split into 2 parts. First part was published and the second part wasn’t so I got the first one off Amazon and the second one off the daomubiji.org website I’ve mentioned before. That means that the second part probably wasn’t edited by a professional so you might notice some quality differences.
