I wish I could give this book 3.5 stars... It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't phenomenal in my opinion. I was glad to see that he touched on some topics that many other authors seem almost afraid to talk about (such as death, the after life and mind reading), and I found several things that I intend to try and a couple I have already experimented with. This isn't a typical Wicca and Witchcraft 101 book, since it's geared more towards those of us who are more nocturnal (no one would ever guess that by the title, though, would they?), but I think those who practice during the day or night could find something useful or interesting in this book. I got the sense that he takes himself a bit too seriously, though. Maybe it was just his choice of words...

As with any author, he wrote about what he knows and believes, and as with any other book, you don't have to take it as gospel and do everything in it. I found many things that were useless to me (such as casting a nocturnal circle, since I rarely cast a circle anymore), but there were also many things that inspired me and that I may try out eventually. I would recommend this book, if for no other reason than it being from a different perspective. It's not a typical 101 book, as I said, but there are many of the same concepts, just presented in a new light.

34.0% "I have to giggle a little at some of the things in this book, but I think it's more the writing style than the actual subjects. It's still basically just a Wicca & Witchcraft 101 book, with a different perspective. I do like the idea about Good/Light, Good/Dark, etc., though. And it's refreshing to see work by a night owl Witch."
