About this title
Curses and harmful magic spells are often the first thing which spring to the minds of the uninitiated on hearing the term hoodoo, yet few rootworkers and conjurers are willing to discuss the subject. This simple book provides a variety of harmful and vindictive spells, including candle work and, of course, the famous VOODOO DOLLS. Described too are the methods for preparing and for cleaning up after harmful work to avoid spiritual backlash.Review:
This is going to sound like an oxymoron, but this is a fun little book that reminds me of the old chapbooks you could order from catalogues and such that you can still find today in botanicas and hoodoo shops. With the penchant of modern Neopagans to ignore the left hand path and see only the good and healing parts of the path ignoring the underworld and Fate, one doesn't see too many works on destructive and retaliation magics except in history and anthropology texts. In grimoires from the Middle Ages and stone and metal tablets from the times of ancient Greece, curses or "death and destruction magic", as the author puts it, were commonplace.
For being a slim volume, Death and Destruction is packed with lore and spells; from different types of spells (poppet, candle, foot track, and jar or bottle spells) to incredibly specific spells for each possible situation the spell-caster may be in. The spells themselves range from simple and subtle to hardcore and nasty - and some of which are not for the feint of heart or stomach however - so if you'd rather stick with protective practices than destructive ones, this is not the title for you. Talia Felix knows her ingredients and methods well. Should you ever consider such magics, this is a good volume to have stored away for a rainy day, especially if you incorporate Hoodoo into your practices as this work was written by a Hoodoo practitioner for other Hoodoo practitioners. --The Pagan Bookworm, September 12, 2009
