The Fire Seekers by Richard Farr [SBM Review]

The Fire Seekers
(The Babel Trilogy Part 1)

An undeciphered language in Crete. A rash of mysterious disappearances, from Bolivia to Japan. An ancient warning at the ruins of Babel. And a new spiritual leader, who claims that human history as we understand it is about to come to an end.

Seventeen-year-old Daniel Calder’s world falls apart when a freak accident brings personal tragedy—and he discovers there’s a link between the accident and a wildly successful new cult, the Seraphim. Catapulted into a violent struggle for humanity’s past and future, he’s not even sure who the enemy is, or if he’s battling a phantom that doesn’t exist. But as Daniel puts his life on the line, he is forced to conclude that our very survival as a species will depend on who, and what, we choose to believe.

This was such an interesting and exciting read. It has mystery, danger, mythology, and theology. For me it started out slowly, but once it started going there was no stopping. I couldn't put the book down it was so captivating. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book. It a great adventure for teenage readers.
