12 Days of Great Summer Reads Day 7 & Giveaway: Gaia's Secret by Barbara Kloss

A young girl travels to a new world in search of her missing father, only to find that she's being hunted by an evil sorcerer.

Daria Jones didn't expect she'd have to chase her missing father through a portal into another, magical world she never knew existed. In order to get to that world, she's forced to rely on Alexander Anderson, her childhood friend who she hasn't seen or heard from in three years. But the truth of who she really is could be the greatest enemy of all. 

Barbara Kloss studied biochemistry at California Polytechnic State University, and after she began working in a clinical lab, found herself daydreaming about far off lands and slightly deranged wizards. She, her husband, two boys, and Lhasa currently live in Arizona, where she escapes the heat by writing about lush vegetation and moderate to cold climates. And also by playing too many video games on her PS3. Author of Gaia's Secret, The Keeper's Flame, Breath of Dragons, and Heir of Pendel.

A transparent shape floated above the yard. It took me a second to realize that it was a reflection in the glass. There was something behind me. Someone. I turned my head toward its source and my breath caught in my chest. It was Alex.
