Rick Chiantaretto

Author Rick Chiantarettoabout this book: Death of the Spirit (Crossing Death #2) is a different kind of scary. While Death of the Body (Crossing Death #1) focused on normal human fears, Death of the Spirit's horrors all come from within.

In Death of the Spirit, we continue Edmund's story. He has returned to a home he doesn't recognize. He misses the simplicity of being human. He misses his magical hometown that he spent so long fighting to get back to.

As the darkness inside him grows, he must learn to sacrifice for the greater good. In order to save his family (both mage and human alike), he must face his nightmare, embrace the darkness, and descend into the Hell of the Damned.

Once there, he will have nothing left to fear but himself: Edmund Gavel, human, mage, demon... maybe monster.

• "Rick Chiantaretto has crafted an incredible story in which the reader will be rooting for Edmund, no matter what his decisions are. Rick's awesome world building and incredible storytelling always remind me of another favorite of mine, Anne Rice."
— Marilyn Almodovar: Author of YA Chronicles of the Interred

• "Death of the Spirit reminds us that sometimes, the scariest places of all are inside ourselves. Both Rick's mundane and magical worlds are fully developed and his characters are utterly realistic, sometimes frighteningly so! This entire series is amazing. I think everyone should read it--and go to hell with Edmund!"
— Margo Bond Collins: Author of Waking Up Dead and Sanguinary
