The Fire Seekers by Richard Farr is the first book in the planned Babel Trilogy. Full of adventure, excitement and action, this mystery thriller about our mythology and destiny witnesses a seventeen-year-old boy being thrown into an international game of survival and intrigue after his father discovered a secret. The secret pertains to the origin of human language and the non-human who Architects who created it.

An atheist and a genius, Bill Caler is the father of Daniel. When Bill announces that the inexplicable "Phaistos language" is proof of the existence of an unknown civilization, people labeled him of being a heretic. Bill's claim is strongly opposed, many by people with vested interests. It is vehemently opposed Julius Quinn who recently founded a fast growing worldwide religion. According to Quinn, the Phaistos language is unlike anything the world has ever known before.

With his father at the center of a major worldwide controversy, Daniel should be concerned but he isn’t. His nonchalant attitude turns to great alarm when a series of events unfold. The death of his mother in a freak accident is followed by the discovery of an ancient warning at the ruins of Babel tower. And more alarmingly, people from all over the world started starting with any reason. Things turn to a head when Daniel's dad, Bill, disappears as he was working on a Phaistos clue in Rome. When Daniel attempts to save his father he stumbles on something more sinister than anything he has heard or seen before. The world may witness its worst ever catastrophe if Quinn is not stopped.

Richard Farr crafted a stupefying mystery thriller is deeply rooted in mythology. Partly drawing inspiration from the biblical story of the Tower of Babel, the story with a liberal dose of imagination and facts explored what really happened at the Tower of Babel? The Fire Seekers is about the Architects who came down to us as the source of all our myths and religions, the source of civilization, and possibly the source of our very humanity. Well-conceived and brilliantly written, this is one book you won’t want to miss.
