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.
When I started this book I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy as I was a little lost at first but after the first chapter I was hooked and couldn’t put my kindle down until the very last page was read.
This book in not like anything I have ever read. Edmund is a ten year old mage who can commune with the Earth itself which I loved. While out on a hunt with his two best friends everything changes in an instant. He looses everything and is betrayed by a man he trusts.
The author writes with such vivid detail that I felt like I was in the story going through everything right along with Edmund. I think the scene that stands out the most to me is when he comes back from his town and the fire that has engulfed it follows him back and destroys the mother tree he traveled through. It was like I could see and smell the fire. This is only one example of Rick’s attention to detail and how vivid he writes his world.
Death of the Body is a fresh and unique book that has me waiting impatiently for the next book.
4/5 Bloody Fangs
Meet Rick Chiantaretto
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.
