The Babel Apocalypse Review Spotlight

Welcome to the book tour for The Babel Apocalypse by Vyvyan Evans. Read on for more details!

The Babel Apocalypse is a science fiction thriller and the first in it's series that is going to grab you and have you page-turning. Books that detail a futuristic look of the world are always fascinating, and The Babel Apocalypse is no different. 

The Babel Apocalypse starts off with a chapter meant to set the stage for the book with the elusive Ebba Black being the focus of this particular chapter. The author focuses highly on Ebba in this chapter, but this wasn't the chapter that would gain my attention the most in this book. When the story shifts to chapter one and brings in Emyr Morgan, THAT'S when things start getting interesting. 

An explosion in the sky, in space, and many stop and stare. No one truly understands just the depth of the impact that is about to rain down (not literally) on them and throw the entire world into chaos. An attack has happened, and now lives are at stake. Chips that used to control language - have been fried, to put it bluntly. Now? People who were on certain networks can no longer communicate with each other. Some have lost it completely. Now? Chaos reigns. 

This book is gripping and a true page-turner the deeper in you go. The author writes of a world that is controlled by either the government or powerful corporations. The author paints a vivid picture of the dangers that swirl all around. Brace yourself for moments that will literally have your jaw on the floor, and shivers going up your spine. Because this could be a potential future for the world. 

Page by page you go deeper as Emyr works to get to the bottom of what has happened and who exactly is behind it all. It's literally a race against the clock because of how many people are being impacted by this. The sheer depth of it will shock you as certain characters reveal disturbing truths concerning what has happened. 

Lovers of science fiction, and cyberpunk, with a nice swirl of dystopian - grab this book! It will surprise you, it will grip you and it will keep you coming back for more! Remember! This book is part of a SERIES so there will be more to come! I can't wait! 

5 out of 5 stars

Expected Publication Date: May 2nd, 2023

Genre: Sci-Fi/ Cyberpunk/ Dystopian

Publisher: Nephilim Publishing

They who control language control everything.” A dystopian, cyberpunk, sci-fi odyssey that will make you think about language in a whole new way.

Language is no longer learned, but streamed to neural implants regulated by lang-laws. Those who can’t afford language streaming services are feral, living on the fringes of society. Big tech corporations control language, the world’s most valuable commodity.

But when a massive cyberattack causes a global language outage, catastrophe looms.

Europol detective Emyr Morgan is assigned to the case. His prime suspect is Professor Ebba Black, the last native speaker of language in the automated world, and leader of the Babel cyberterrorist organization. But Emyr soon learns that in a world of corporate power, where those who control language control everything, all is not as it seems.

As he and Ebba collide, Emyr faces an existential dilemma between loyalty and betrayal, when everything he once believed in is called into question. To prevent the imminent collapse of civilization and a global war between the great federations, he must figure out friend from foe—his life depends on it. And with the odds stacked against him, he must find a way to stop the Babel Apocalypse.

"A perfect fusion of SF, thriller, and mystery—smart speculative fiction at its very best." - Kirkus
