Author Biography

Barbara Kloss loves adventures, and finds them through reading, writing, trekking through the wilderness, and gaming—though she doesn’t consider herself a gamer. She just happens to like video games. RPGs, specifically. She’s also a bit of a fitness enthusiast, a classically-trained pianist, and she believes that maintaining balance in life is a good thing (coffee excluded).

Before she opted to write full-time, Barbara worked for years as a clinical laboratory scientist. She was lured there by mental images of colorful bubbling liquids in glass beakers. She was deceived.

She currently lives in Northern California with the man of her dreams and their two boys, whom she fully intends to turn into little adventurers. Author of Gaia’s Secret, The Keeper’s Flame, Breath of Dragons (a 2015 RONE Award winner), and Heir of Pendel (a 2016 RONE Aware Finalist).

Breath of Dragons (A Pandoran Novel, #3) by Barbara Kloss is a high stakes young adult fantasy full of action and adventure. After the death of a prince, Alex and Daria go off in search of Pandora's legendary box. The box supposedly holds a power so strong that Daria believes it can overthrow Lord Eris. But Daria doesn't know where the box is and time is not on her side. Lord Eris has amassed an army that cannot be defeated without reinforcements from the other regions. But for those reinforcements, the other lords want Daria's hand in marriage. And another magic stirs in the region, the magic of dragons which hasn't been seen for years and is very unpredictable. Can Daria find the box in time to stop the evil lord? Or will she have to give up on love and marry in order to save her kingdom.

This is a beautifully written book full of love and action and adventure. The writing is strong and readers will love the pacing and details of the story. The characters are interesting and very realistic. Readers will identify with Daria's struggle and understand why she works so hard to bring peace to her region. There are all the typical fantasy elements: evil lords, forced marriage proposals, and even wildly unpredictable dragons. There are other elements in this story too. Strong characters, sweet sensitive sides, and great pacing.
