The time of our immortality is at hand.
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.

odd ending, good story
Yes. This book was a great start with a storyline that was based on the mystery surrounding the Tower of Babel and the emergence of Babylon. It was a fantasy and a thriller with many questions raised, answered and unanswered. And unlike many young adult novels, the story was conveyed from the sole perspective of a young man which is not always the case for this genre.
This is my first.
This is my first. Scott Merriman's abilities are phenomenal!
Research the story of the Tower of Babel. Think about the tower being a mountain versus a building....Consult the historical references for BC era events, including biblical
So the main character had some surprise fighting skills. Get over it. Harry Potter fought Voldemort at 3 years old. I 'm not sure some of the nay sayers see what I see. Given more time and a higher word count, this book could really be the start of a phenomenal series that is neither an epic copy of Tolkein but more of a Edgar Allen Poe take on biblical history with a sprinkle of the unknown and paranormal. I'm anxious to read the next book from the perspective of the sister.
