Language is no longer learned, but streamed from internet in space to neural implants, fitted at birth as mandated by lang-laws. Big tech reigns supreme. Those who cannot afford monthly Language Streaming services are feral and outcast, at the fringes of society. But when a massive cyber attack causes a global language outage, catastrophe looms.

Professor Ebba Black, the last native speaker of language in the automated world, and leader of the Babel hacktivist collective, is suspect number one. Europol detective Emyr Morgan is assigned to the case. When he and Ebba collide, each with their divergent agendas, Emyr faces a dilemma between loyalty and betrayal, in an altered landscape where nothing is what it once seemed.

To prevent the imminent collapse of civilization, and a deadly war between the great federations, Emyr must figure out friend from foe, as his life may very well depend upon it. And with the odds stacked against him, he has to find a way to stop the Babel Apocalypse.
