Review: Secrets of The Witch

Published 4th August, 2020 by Allen & Unwin

Secrets of the Witch is elegant and enchanting. From the first page we are treated to stunning illustrations and diagrams that immediately draw you into the text.

“Magic is Magic and the only difference (between white and black magic) lies within our intentions and how we choose to use it” p13

Filled to the brim with historical witchiness and definitions, Secrets of The Witch is easy to read and to understand. I love that this book covers the impact of Christianity on magical perceptions and how it has changed the modern view on practicing witchcraft.

From Wicca to Druids, this book has everything for the budding witch or the curious. It is so easy to read and to understand, even though it reads as a history textbook. It makes learning about magical history fun.

The Practical Magic section of this title is incredible. With the medicinal properties of common plants, crystals and their uses, talismans and pendulums.

This was an eye opening, refreshing read. It is written using modern language, making the history of witches and their craft, more accessable to a new generation. The illustrations are haunting and you will lose yourself in their beauty.

Secrets of the Witch is beautifully written and put together. Thank you to Allen and Unwin for sending me out a review copy of this title. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
