ABOUT THE BOOK:
What if it took the loss of everything you loved for you to become whom you were meant to be?
An ancient Prophecy is fulfilled as Daniel, the Miracle, is found and trained by the Light and is then led to discover the sacrifices necessary for his success in the growing battle against the Dark.

Miraden, Master Magician and Enchanter under the direction of the Creators of the
Realms of the Crystal Orb, finds a boy pure of heart and mind. The ancient Prophecy is fulfilled in Daniel, the miracle boy, as he learns and is guided at the Master's side. His inherent powers help to heal the scars that the Dark has left behind, recover a stolen and bewitched princess, and fight a war against the forces led by Miraden's Dark brother,
Tophet. The boy's own ties to his family are tested and in the final outcome a larger family stands together around Daniel and all proclaim him to be The Miracle of Mirador.
A Prince on a quest for his betrothed Princess; A Kingdom searching for its lost daughter
- that same princess; An Enchanter seeking the Miracle of Prophecy promised since the dawn of time who is to become his apprentice and save the world; A boy growing up wise in a loving family, seeking friends who will understand and share his dreams; A
Darkness, alive since before the moment of Creation - before Humans, before Dwarves -
seeking supremacy over its eternal foes: all meet in a climactic conflagration of battles fueled by secrecy, magic and treachery. The battles center around the heart of the Realms of the Crystal Orb: the kingdom of Mirador. How the Prince, Princess, Enchanter and
Dark Wizard are aided or vanquished by the Miracle forms the center of "The Miracle of
Mirador."

ABOUT THE SERIES:
Daniel Light and the Children of the Orb SERIES
Thirteen novels of mystery and magic
By C. Michael Perry
Youth, in a world and a time that are faraway, learn how to fulfill the demands of the prophecy that are placed on their shoulders. It is a time and place of dragons and magic and other creatures beyond our ken - upon which the Darkness is constantly encroaching.
From Creation to Renewal this is the story of a planet. Not our planet, but it could be. From first to last it is a journey of duties, of wants, of needs; and of a doubt - that reluctance that takes each of us from the carefree levels of our childhood through adolescence to adulthood. A journey that includes the discoveries and sacrifices each of us must make as we seek to return to that place from whence we came having learned, in whole or in part, what we were sent here to learn.
These stories combine the need for the fairytales of our childhood with the thirst for knowledge and adventure that is possessed by the adolescent. These needs we never seem to outgrow, even as adults.
Youth and adult alike can and should be empowered with the desire and ability to make correct decisions in their lives; ones that will lead each of us to good, honest, valuable lives in adulthood. The youths of these stories, through the careful guidance of their mentoring adults, variously achieve or fail to reach such empowerment for whatever reason - internal or external.
The Light inside each of us needs be recognized for what it is; POWER. It should be encouraged and kindled to full flame to help deflect and defeat the Dark that surrounds us.
Daniel, the Miracle of Mirador, is at the beginning, the center, and the ending - he is the leader - of our journey. "And a little child shall lead them."
