I was given a free copy by NetGalley and Llewellyn in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own.
WARNING: Not totally beginner friendly. There were terms that I had to look up for me to understand them properly, I needed to search for a lot of things even thought this book was well written. I know it said SIMPLIFIED but I felt lost in some parts.
“The greatest Witches of legend and folklore practiced their craft through spirit conjuration and employing a familiar spirit. Now, centuries later, this art, once the supposed proclivity of ceremonial magicians, can be acquired and mastered by Modern Witches using only the enhanced tools and methodologies that they already possess. Without having to invest a lot of time, money, and effort, the average Modern Witch can adopt certain practices and techniques to safely and competently perform invocations, evocations and travel the Spirit World like the Witches of legend.”
Barrabbas’s writing style is engaging and absolutely informative, but with a beginner like me, you can get lost with a whole lot of things. I had to constantly check my laptop for my notes while reading.
The book is written in like a textbook would be written but you know an interesting textbook.
3.5 stars out of 5 just because of all the note taking I had to do. haha
*also if you don’t like magic/spirits/witchcraft/etc.. Don’t read this.
