The Babel Apocalypse is a genre-blending dystopian, sci-fi mystery-thriller that will make you think about language in a whole new way.

The book is a Reedsy Recommended read, descibing it as follows:

"A creative take on our high-tech future" The Babel Apocalypse by Vyvyan Evans is a thrilling sci-fi mystery set in a high-tech future where language is no longer learned but streamed to neural implants. Powerful corporations control the technology, and when a cyberattack causes a global language outage, detective Emyr Morgan is tasked with finding the one responsible. What he discovers leads him to question everything he’s ever known. The worldbuilding and lead characters are all excellent, and reviewer Karen Sidall calls it “one of the most creative” sci-fi novels she’s read recently. We recommend it to readers of cyber-punk and dystopian fiction, especially those with a passion for linguistics!"  (Reedsy Discovery, ISSUE #214 – APRIL 21, 2023)

The Babel Apocalypse is book #1 in the Songs of the Sage series. Check out the website here
