The story of a young man born into the world but not of it, and the circle he gathers to fulfill a destiny fifteen hundred years in the making.

An Age of Miracles is the first chapter in the epic of Paran Thakan’dar, a young man drawn by primal cosmic forces into a journey of spiritual discovery. Around him fate gathers a circle of seekers, bound together in the service of an unknown destiny. Yet the path before them leads inexorably to the enigmatic Damien Kildrian, a gatekeeper and trader in the ancient mysteries, who claims to hold the secret of Paran’s greater purpose. Whether he is to prove ally or enemy, trickster or guide, only in the convergence of their paths will the riddles begin to unravel.

  A book that leaves a lasting impression , 05/15/2008
Reviewer: John Dozie
This book is one that lends it self to being difficult to encapsulate, but it is this very essence of the book that has left such a profound impression. I strongly believe everyone will take something different from the book, but for me this book in an unexpected way gives me the ability to believe in hope. The story may be mistaken for a typical science fiction or fantasy book, however the depth and human quality of each character grabbed me from the start of this epic journey. At a time when we have created so many ways to look at how we are all different from one another; this story gives me hope that one day we can realize the simple elegant beauty of knowing we are all part of something much larger than ourselves. This book offers an experience that one cannot afford to pass up.

  A Marvelous Riddle , 07/09/2008
Reviewer: Dominic V.
This book has me quite puzzled and thoroughly interested. I'm at a loss in trying to describe what I'm feeling having finished it. It's very epic and grand, yet for all its grandness the most powerful moments take place intimately within the characters. They are often revealed in jarring nakedness, raw and close. This is an excellent read and stands on its own. That being said, it also feels much like it's only the shadowy beginning of something MORE. An Age of Miracles raises more questions than it attempts to answer, particularly about spirituality, ethnicity, greed, and power. It also stands out in that it manages to weave many bizarre riddles together in a seamless and elegant way. Zindle's world mirrors our own on levels that are both insightful and deeply uncomfortable. This book is large and lofty, thrilling and mystical, but it's grandest quality may be that it never loses its humanity in the process. This book leaves me deliciously puzzled, and looking forward to the next installment.
