March 3, 2012 - March 25, 2012

Babel imagines the story of the brilliant architect of the biblical tower that would reach to heaven. Driven by colossal failure
and personal tragedy, and with the resources of a king at his command, he establishes a vast library. So vast, in fact, that
many in the secret society that administers it believe it has no end. But when an Initiate to the Order of Librarians discovers
an irregularity in the architecture that points to hidden chambers, the search for tantalizing hidden knowledge is on.

What secrets does the library hold? Who will find them, and who will be responsible for the awesome power they contain?
A modern parable about the danger of hubris versus the power of knowledge, Babel is a world filled with labyrinths and
secret societies, danger, mystery, and ultimately a secret that leads to an entirely new world.
