Death is no longer the enemy, just a helping hand upon the other side of the bridge. This is a book about Azrael, the Angel of Death. It is about the art of Necromancy. And it puts to rest the misconceptions associated with both, for Death is no evil spirit, longing to take life, but a saddened Angel who weeps when he releases the souls of mankind. For too long has he been portrayed as GRIM, for there is a beauty to his nature that when it touches you, you cry. You cry with the pain he has felt, you cry at the joy of life, and you cry in the knowledge that he will in time set you free. This book portrays True Necromancy, not the sordid medieval ditherings of mad occultists. This is not a book of necrophilia or of grave desercration, but of love for the spirits of those gone before, and the love for The Angel. It puts you in touch with a mystical being, and lifts your heart in the process. So go on, give Death a chance and listen to the voice of melancholy. You may one day see him as the Angel of Life...

Everyone has their own way of making contact with the dead. Although this book is incrediblely short at just 50 pages, it makes up for it in information wise. An excellent read.

This book is a verry modern and personalized version of necromancy as leilah claims to have direct contact with death raver then having to call apon him.. at one point "in another book" she actuly cales him uncle az.. raver then azreal or the grim reaper.. never the less it is a griat book and an interesting read showing a less scarey and dark side to death..
there are a cuple of rituals "interesting" in there most of it is jsut information if ure looking for a multiude of rituals its not good but hte ones that are in there are werth holding on to
the actule content of the wrighting is good she cracks a cuple of jokes and makes it a frendly and easy to understand no long words in hear lol
