In an alternate 21st century Solar System: Tandra Grey has left Earth for the ancient sustainable culture of Varok, with its promise of stability for her young daughter. But a genius with a hidden talent sets her eye on Varok's wealth—and Tandra's soul mates. Tandra, the elll Conn, and the varok Orram must untangle a web of deceit to restore balance for Varok and their fragile new family.
The second novel in Cary Neeper's Archives of Varok series, The Webs of Varok catches up with the characters from Neeper's 1975 novel A Place Beyond Man, re-released in 2011. With three more titles coming in 2013-14, the five-volume Archives of Varok travels with Tandra's family on quests from Earth to the Oort Cloud, with several stops in-between.
