Imagine if there was nothing out there except deep space and empty planets.

Imagine that we're searching in the wrong places for answers. 

And thenif you willimagine that life is only one way of being,

and that we are connected in ways that are beyond our understanding by a 'multiworld' .

Welcome to THE ZiNDER

Packed with intrigue, this imaginative book series captures the charm of summer in a sub-tropical Australian town as an underground battle threatens the fabric of reality.

Aged by time. Sculpted by enlightened minds. It's time for the zinder to reveal its purpose.


In the late nineteenth century it lay buried on a small mountain in Queensland, Australia. To fulfil its purpose it called upon the first samaran to do its life-altering bidding.


In return for protection and dedication it gifted her unique talents and access to its secrets. Since then five generations of samaran have been its custodians. Each inherits talents superior to the last, advancing their legacy, and growing a deep bond with the living object.


At the start of the twenty-first century with our world on the brink of change, the sixth samaran is born. It is in this defining era that the zinder performs a momentous feat that will go down in history as a critical turning point in the evolution of all living beings.
