Blog Tour Stop~Giveaway~Scavenger Hunt~Review Death Of The Body by: Rick Chiantaretto ****

Title:  Death of the Body (Crossing Death #1)
Author:  Rick Chiantaretto
Genre: New Adult Urban Fantasy
I grew up in a world of magic. By the time I was ten I understood nature, talked to the trees, and listened to the wind. When the kingdom of men conquered my town, I was murdered by one of my own—the betrayer of my kind. But I didn't stay dead.
I woke to find myself in a strange new world called Los Angeles. The only keys to the life I remembered were my father’s ring, my unique abilities, and the onslaught of demons that seemed hell-bent on finding me. Now I must learn who I really am, protect my friends, get the girl, and find my way back to my beloved hometown of Orenda.


I was instantly captivated by this book as soon as it started. The beginning will blow your mind. You’re like what in the world happened. So of course I kept reading because I needed to know more about what was happening. It is such a wonderful story that will keep you reading and your interest peaked.

I absolutely adored Edmund. He was such a great kid. As soon as the book starts you are in love with him and his friends. They are all wonderful. Then you learn their secrets and you can’t help but adore them that much more. My heart broke for all of them though the more I read. Especially Edmund. He went through so much.

So if you love getting to read a different type of story that will leave you thinking and doing your best to guess what’s going on this is the book for you. I was ecstatic to get to read this book; it was definitely suspenseful and kept my attention. I was NEVER bored and I love it when a book can keep me glued to it. Definitely worth reading. 

About Rick Chiantaretto
I’ve often been accused of having done more in my life than the average 30 year old, but if I were completely honest I’d have to tell you my secret: I’m really 392.
So after all this time, I’m a pretty crappy writer.
I have one book published but out of print, one coming out soon, and a bunch half written (when you have eternity, where’s the reason to rush?). I’ve been favorably reviewed by horror greats like Nancy Kilpatrick, and my how-to-write-horror articles have been quoted in scholarly (aka community college freshmen’s) papers.
I enjoy the occasional Bloody Mary, although a Bloody Kathy or Susan will suffice.
Mostly, I just try to keep a low profile so people don’t figure out who I REALLY am.
