Veil is a fast-paced, psychological sci-fi thriller that will hold you on the edge of your seat and leave you questioning the truth of your own reality. The story follows the tale of three characters, as they attempt to navigate the perilous courses of their own lives and bring an end to their stories, each character dealing differently with the troubles that living brings.
But unbeknownst to them, far away on a distant planet called Omia Prime, their cosmic doubles exist in a world that is thousands of years ahead of their own.
In this world, large medical companies have discovered the existence of the earthly "primitive doubles". In their research, the medical companies of Omia Prime have discovered that the life of the Earth-bound primitive twins has a drastic effect on their advanced counterparts, so they devise ways to "lengthen" the lives on their planet by affecting the lives of the primitive cosmic twins. The more money you spend on your double, the more of an effect you can have, doing everything from preventing a suicide, to making them wildly successful and prosperous.
But life is a two-way street.
Ethan's life begins to unravel wildly as he runs for his life across the United States. So too does the life of his double, a broken and isolated man who longs for the quiet peace of death.
As Casey sits on her bed, a glass of wine and a bottle of sleeping pills held between her hands, she is interrupted by the phone call of a long-lost love. It's a sign from God, she thinks. A sign to keep on living. Her galactic doppelganger sighs in relief.
Gordon grows richer and richer by the day, but his tastes are quickly resorting to the cruel and macabre. Millions of lightyears away, his double smiles in a room full of wealthy men as he watches tsunamis wash over derelict islands and third-world cities.
Can it all be stopped?
Will they find what's waiting beyond the veil?
