The latest work of Xia Da, probably most known for her "Zhi Bu Yi" alias "Dare mo Shiranai" series.
It began serializing in the February Issue of "Manyou" this year, and subquequently via online release on u17.com at the end of April.
u17.com is a manhua online reading site, calling itself 原创漫画梦工厂, meaning about as much as "Original Manhua Dream Works".
Among a lot of amateur works, there are quite a handful of professionals there and even among the amateurs there are enough skillfull ones releasing their works on the site. Most of them are original works, but I have also spotted some doujinjis there as well.
Page by Page online reading on u17.com is free, to enable chapter batch-download one has to pay a fee.
The teaser chapter contains various seemingly random pages of the series, along with the announcement of its online-release. It gives a good impression on the mood and drawing skills of Xia Da.
Xia Da uses quite flowerish and literary Chinese. I doubt my translations do her justice, but this work does certainly look good to me.
Editing skills by me are also rather mediocre, but it should look not too horrible.
