Blog Tour with Giveaway & Review – Death of the Body (Crossing Death, Book 1) by Rick Chiantaretto





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 find out who I really am, protect my friends, and get back to my beloved hometown of Orenda.

Review by Angela

I was given a copy of this book for the blog tour in exchange for an honest review.  What to say about this book? Well, let me just say that I have not read anything like this!! It is so imaginative, witty, action-filled, scary, creepy, surprising and awesome. I was enjoying the book and when I was just getting a sense of what I thought was happening, Rick changed it!! Something completely unexpected happened and it changed into something else. But this did not detract from the story or the circumstances.  It actually enhanced it and caused me to be even more invested in the story and want to know more about what the hell was going on. Rick is so adept at not giving anything away until the last possible second. While the main character, Edmund, would come to the realization sooner than the reader, he never let it be known to the reader until it was necessary. I really had a hard time figuring anything out early on, which is a good thing to me! I was so enamored with this story and I did not want to stop reading it. I only had about 40% left when I went to bed the other night and I stayed up to finish it because I had to know what was going on. I couldn’t quite put my finger on what was happening and what everything meant so it was frustrating and I needed to know! I felt like I needed to know more than I needed sleep.  I love when a book does that to me.  5 books!! Go get it now!! Go!  It’s only $0.99! What are you waiting for?


Meet Rick Chiantaretto


Author Bio:

I’ve often been accused of having done more in my life than the average person my age, 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.
