Review by: Nathaniel Patterson on Jan. 16, 2012 :
I found The Skyscraper of Babel to be a really good book.

I'm not normally a big fantasy reader, but I have to say that this was one of the best books I've read in a long while. The whole story is pretty interesting. From the very first page about the events that lead to the main character Aidan's adventure, I was hooked.

Speaking of Aidan, I really enjoyed the character dynamics of this book. There are some really funny and likeable characters (Isaac was my favorite!), but the worlds are also really cool! These teens wake up after a car crash in Limbo, where the Skyscraper of Babel is found. All spirits work as angels there to move on to the next world.

My other favorite part of the book was the battle scenes. It was cool to see a new take on a fantasy novel where angels have to fight to help keep the world safe and from harm.

The only thing I wished I could change about it was the cliffhanger ending! The twist at the end is a real surprise, and the close of the novel makes it too hard to wait for the sequel to come out! I am definitely looking forward to that.

I highly recommended this book. I thought it was a great addition to the YA fantasy genre, and it was written by a 20 year old to boot! Like I said, can't wait for the next installment!
