The Witch's Book of Shadows: The Craft, Lore & Magick of the Witch's Grimoire
The Witch's Book of Shadows: The Craft, ... The Witch's Book of Shadows: The Craft, Lore & Magick of the Witch's Grimoire - Jason Mankey I've always been fascinated with Witchcraft and even dabbled in it when I was in my late teens. This book was an interesting and engaging look at the different types of Book of Shadows used and was filled with a lot of practical information for making your own Book of Shadows.

Told through the author's own personal experiences. As well as Including the history of witchcraft and examples of ceremonies for cleansing and protecting you own BOS, this book offers both the beginner and experienced Witch a little something worth learning.

The Magick Host by Jacquie Alanna Gallo
The Magick Host - Jacquie Alanna Gallo
This is a debut novel that gives a twist to the tale of magic (with a k) and vampires. It revolves around a trio of twenty-somethings and what happens to make their lives more interesting and infinitely more dangerous.

There is not a lot of explanation about why Skye/Eli can do the things he can, or even a lot of detail about how and why Eli was killed previously, but still this story will take you along. It is a slow burner but stick with it because it certainly heats up as things progress. 

I really enjoyed this book even though I wasn't sure about it, even when I was about a third of the way through. There are some editing issues where characters are called by the wrong name which does interrupt the flow, but on the whole, it is very enjoyable and definitely worth a read and a review.

Black Magick Volume 1: Awakening, Part 1
Black Magick Volume 1: Awakening, Part One (Black Magick 1) - Greg Rucka

The first thing that you'll notice upon opening Black Magick is the art. The art is stunning, despite the very bold choice to work in black and white. Even before I knew anything concrete about Rowan, I was drawn in with the illustrations of a midnight ritual. Some of the dual page spreads in this book are just stunning! And that's after looking at them digitally. I can only imagine how impressive they look in person.

 

That being said, the three star rating here mainly comes from the lack of story movement in this particular volume. We meet Rowan, and get a glimpse into the double life that she leads. That part really intrigued me. To be a part of the normal police force by day, and be part of something much more magical by night. Which, is the part that I wish was really more focused on. The mystery revolving around Rowan's past, and why she was being hunted, were only barely touched on.

 

Truth be told, I'll be reading on in this series. It's hooked me enough, that I want to know what happens next. Plus, I can't wait to see more of this amazing art!

Reading progress update: I've read 48%.
The Witch's Mirror: The Craft, Lore & Magick of the Looking Glass (The Witch's Tools Series) - Mickie Mueller

I've just facepalmed.

 

I have an interest in this subject matter, but also a healthy dose of scepticism. I'm wondering if Llewellyn will drop me as an auto approve on Netgalley after I write my review.

Witch/policewoman is being hunted
Black Magick Volume 1: Awakening, Part One (Black Magick 1) - Greg Rucka

 

 

Portsmouth (USA) Detective Rowan Black is also a witch and an organisation called the Aira is out to kill her, knowing her secret. Murders occur which seem linked to Detective Black. She gets other witches involved and they discover that all is not as it looks.

 

A lot of supernatural events, spark this collection: it is engaging stuff, clearly illustrated in grey tones and leads to another Volume to come.
