What makes this book unique? The world of the gray witch has been largely avoided, misrepresented, or glossed over with various books geared gingerly towards 'protection magic'. These books, though informative and well written as they may be, have totally missed the spirit of the gray witch - who she really is, how she relates to the world of shadow and light, and exactly ...more

A very basic, very average witchy book. Nothing new to be learnt here, simple regurgitation of what most people already know instinctively. It was also a bit too small - why pagan writers think they can get away with the bare minimum of word counts is beyond me.
I had high hopes for this book. I really did. After reading the pages available as a preview, and going through the reviews available on Amazon, I was excited! Finally, a book that took (what I believe to be) a realistic perspective on Witchcraft – that all parts of it are to be respected, not feared.

I wish I could say I wasn’t disappointed. For one, its short. Less than 200 pages. (If I had the ability to focus I once did, I could read it in one sitting.) For another, it doesn’t really address

Lovely book, great to read and informative. Wish it was a bit longer.

Solid, concise opening includes magical principles and ethics associated with gray witchcraft. The middle section, which comprises about half the book, is your basic "Wicca 101" information without the "harm none" philosophy. As a seasoned, non-Wiccan witch, I lost some interest here.

Then the spell portion turned my opinion back around. The hoodoo influences were apparent in these creatively crafted charms of a mostly darker nature. Some of them are a little basic, but I also learned a lot here

This book is amazing. It was exactly what I was looking for since I live in the real world,not a bubble where everything is perfect. Honestly that seems to be what the authors nowadays are trying to project as reality. I am so thankful I found and bought this book. It has real world application and is well written. I wish she would write another book to expand my knowledge as this is how I want to live my life.She has written a great book,a handbook really, that has given me what I need

Another lister and tabler. There's an association for everything but no depth analysis of these associations.

Only gets two stars because it adheres to common grammatical conventions and is well organised. There is a half hearted attempt to contextualise ideas but only to very modern contexts - again a solid foundation in folklore and myth is missing.

However, there are more comprehensive guides and most spells and recipes seemed lifted from Judika Illes' Encyclopaedic works.

I chose this book mainly due to the title, and my age haha. Learning through reading as much as I can I have come across a few less than helpful or accurate books. This however gives a greater insight and better understanding of why, how and when things are being, or have been, done. Great shelf filler you will pull out time after time

The first two parts of this book were very remedial, as in none of the information seemed new. It was the same basic 101 stuff you'd read in any Wicca or Witchcraft book. Part 3, however, had some interesting spells which I will hang onto the book because they could prove a useful resource someday.

This book is fairly basic. The ideas are general and able to be altered to meet ones needs. Sometimes we need a gentle reminder that things truly can be simple, yet beautiful and full of meaning.

“The gray witch abhors violence, hatred, and conflict as much as the next person; but she’s not afraid to face these issues using the power she possesses to right a situation and reinstate balance. The gray witch doesn’t flinch at the earthier aspects of her craft that send the fluffy bunnies running for cover, clinging to their illusion of a perfect white world.” 2 likes
