The Veiled Web


Product Description
Product Details


Praise for The Veiled Web "At once thoughtful and imaginative, The Veiled Web is a near-future layering of East and West, of religion and technology, movement and introspection--and of love and its loss--all woven into an intriguing tapestry that shows one turning point in the eternal battle for the souls of men. If one knows quite what a soul is!" --Diana Gabaldon "A terrific novel, ripping a path from today's headlines to tomorrow's realities--a page-turning thriller tempered by romance and ethical concerns, with characters (even some nonhuman ones) you'll care deeply about. Look for this one on the bestseller lists." --Robert J. Sawyer, Nebula Award-winning author of Factoring Humanity and Flashforward "Known for her brilliance at combining science, adventure, and riveting characterization, Catherine Asaro breaks new territory with a compelling story set in the world we know, at the dangerous intersection of cutting-edge technology and the age-old conflict of culture and the human heart. A romance of ideas as well as the story of a man and a woman attempting to build a bridge between two very different societies, The Veiled Web is a thought-provoking and entertaining tale for the dawn of a new millennium." --Mary Jo Putney "Asaro discards TV cliches and "Time" magazine stereotypes to search for the real Arab culture. She chooses her milieu well: the Arabs are a passionate people, and this is a passionate book, crackling with tension between modernity and tradition, art and science, male and female, idealism and cynicism. The attraction and repulsion between her American heroine and Arab hero presage a collision of cultures that will increasingly come to dominate tomorrow's social landscape." --Jamil Nasir
