The "secret" behind this type of Magick or any, really, is hidden in plain sight. Some of these rituals seem hokey, but substitution for some of the really easy to obtain 'ingredients' is somewhat encouraged.

Shelves: the-craft
Cutesy, humorous, and believing in karma. I recently took an interest in curses because everyone seems so afraid to use them and afraid that they are cursed at the same time. I felt like there was a good deal of repetition in here, especially with cautioning people not to throw out hexes on a whim. I found that a little annoying since the author devoted a portion of the beginning of the text to that, and didn't see a need for the disclaimer throughout the book as well.

Entertaining

This book is by no means based on real historical contexts and even the basic tenets of magic seem to be overlooked here. Please take the "curses" in this book as a grain of salt. I gave this book 3 stars simply because I found it extremely entertaining, especially as a practicing witch of over 20 years. From that standpoint (and that standpoint alone) it does not disappoint!

Confession, I didn't read this and I do not believe in magic or spell casting. I'm giving it five stars for the cover and because I would love to have it in my kitchen next to my recipe books. Would also make a lovely Halloween prop. Sadly, I can't justify the purchase.
