The Real Witch's Book of Spells and Rituals
on 20 November 2003
Having read The Real Witch's Handbook, I bought this title to complete my collection of Kate West books. I enjoy her style of writing, and her spells and rituals are laid out in a clear and concise manner, listing all tools and ingredients you will require and how to prepare them.
There are spells for every kind of situation in this book, and instructions on how to create your own spells for other needs.
There are also rituals for each Sabbat and Esbat. However, these have been written with the Coven in mind, and not a solitary witch like myself. I was very disappointed that I would need a group to follow these rituals, as I have no intention of ever finding let alone joining a Coven. All in all, the rituals in The Real Witch's Handbook were preferable for a solitary!
I'd still recommend this book to any witch who wants to learn more about spells however, as the spells section is very useful. Shame about the rituals section!
