Mrs Darley’s Practical Pagan Magick by Carole Carlton

Publisher: Wolfenhowle Press

I have never read a Mrs Darley’s book before although I’ve heard good reports from people that have. So I had high expectations for this book before I even started. It is a hard book to classify, partly a story, and partly a practical reference, although that sounds an unlikely mixture I am glad to report that it works really well. The country cottage environment gives the book a suitably old witchy feel, and the information it gives is excellent too.

Each chapter reveals more of Mrs Darley’s beliefs and practices, and every one includes fact sections that blend seamlessly into the storyline. Many pagan text books are heavy reading, this one is a joy to read, drawing you into the story and teaching you a host of facts about the practical use of magick. I will definitely read the next one in the series which is about the highest recommendation anyone could give a series. This is a great book, both entertaining and will teach you about practical magick, if you find traditional pagan or magical factual books too much, just want to read a good entertaining pagan story, or even both this is the book for you.
