At first glance, this seemed a very “fluffy” book. However, after giving Lady Onyx’s book, Everyday Witch A to Z, an honest read, I changed my mind. My pointy hat is off to Ms. Blake (aka Onyx) for a work of fabulous diplomacy and the friendliest introduction to the world of Witchcraft that I have encountered. Organized into short, alphabetized categories, this graphically-pleasing book explains all the basics of Witchcraft in a forthright, non-threatening manner. Everything from the philosophy of Perfect Love and Perfect Trust to Sabbats and Esbats, elementals, basic spellcraft, herbology, gem magic, and more are covered. Do you have a relative, friend, or neighbor who thinks Witchcraft is evil? This is the book to give them!
Beginning witches will find a wealth of information in these pages. The layout of the book demonstrates a great deal about the culture of Witchcraft. From the copious use of pretty graphics and color to the casual mismatch of jokes, quotes, “advice columns,” and helpful hints, Everyday Witch stays true to the eclectic, practical tendency of witches to use what works, when it works. Like the fabric of our lives, there is a lovely balance of mirth and reverence here.
Lady Onyx, it is not an easy thing to create a beginner’s guide that holds the interest of more advanced practitioners, but I think you’ve done it. A blessing in your general direction for a job well done.
