A grey witches grimoire does what it says on the tin. It is a fairly comprehensive but concise introduction to witchcraft from the viewpoint of the grey witch. (That is as opposed to a pure and good white witch who might be a little over fluffy at times and a dark and wicked black magic practitioner - a middle ground of a witch who recognises her own human quirks and is willing to take a few steps more into forcing her will on the world around her, sometimes over other people). As with any publication on witchcraft or paganism there are areas which individuals will disagree on, or feel were represented in a way one wouldn't oneself, but here they are mostly not any great issue and don't detract from the book as a whole or it's usefulness. (Which is in itself quite an achievement).

The authors style is personal and readable and again moonbooks are printing on paper which is lovely and soft to the touch and is a pleasure to handle, making the pages easy to turn in more than one way.

Not every spell detailed is one that every reader will be comfortable with as it includes curses and spells to influence the will of another.
Many witches will shy away from such practices, either on ethical and moral grounds, or because of concern for the consequences and unexpected repercussions; not to mention the responsibility you bear when practicing such work is great; and some even avoid taking those steps because they consider there to be healthier approaches to problem solving with reduced personal cost. However for those who are happy with taking on full personal responsibility for these actions themselves who want materials to help them work along the shadowier areas of magic, this should prove to be a good and useful resource.

At first I thought this was going to be another flowery prose sort of book which required me to have my brain so "open" it would leak out my ears; conversely perhaps written by a bregrudging walker of the crooked path who thinks having a bitter tongue denotes wisdom. However, once I had read the first five pages, I realised I was reading the real deal: someone who walked the Crooked Path but had kept their head on straight the whole while, and was willing to guide others through the thorns and brambles a bit (although, quite sensibly, not the whole way through). The book has plenty of great details about the months of the year, touches on the use of hoodoo, and yet also touches on Hermetic magick and application. These subjects are very broad and would require their own book, but the author gives enough for the starting witch to get on with, and breaks it down in straight-forward language. This is indeed a path which is for people who are not of the fluffy-witch variety, or of the hard-core Chaosite/vampiric types, but it does carefully bridge the gap between the two.

It should be noted the book is primarily of a Dianic standpoint and therefore men who read the book for insight may feel a bit left out, but I still think it's a good resource for those who may just be starting out on the Path. Personally, I have been Working for over 20 years, but even I read some things I didn't know about (having never been a part of a coven), and I will definitely be incorporating some things into my practice. All in all, a good book for those who aren't afraid to bring down a hex or two upon a deserving head - but only when it is deserved.

I'm not a big fan of giving Witchcraft a colour, whether white, black or gray. This book seems to combine modern western ritual Witchcraft with aspects of hoodoo thrown in.

I liked the inclusion of the metaphysical witches laws, a lot of how to books seem to skip past that, but I feel the witches laws explain how energy works, and how to work in a state of balance. I also liked the explanation of the elements, and the author has included a few correspondence lists to get the practitioner started. I also liked the description of the sabbats and the 13 moons of the year.

I noticed the author seemed to get confused with the hermetic axioms. On p18 she stated Air = To know which is correct. On p21 she stated Earth's axiom was "to know".

I wasn't keen on how the book refers to witches in a feminine aspect, this book did not come across as being very inclusive of male witches but I do understand there are a lot of books on witchcraft that still do this. I also understand the author is writing from her own experience as a female witch working in a coven of all female witches.

Another thing I was not sold on is the concept of self initiation. I do not believe that people can initiate themselves, but I do believe they can dedicate/devote themselves to a path or to chosen deities. The author states on p29 about the three degrees in Witchcraft, "These degrees are a progression of levels within the hierarchy of a coven, from the first-degree witch passing through her period as novice, to the third-degree witch who will carry more responsibility within the group..." and the author contradicts this by offering ways to self-initiate and self-elevate to third. This to me is the equivalent of sitting your driving test and giving yourself a pass mark for it.
