Honestly, I probably shouldn't write this, but when my editor at Patheos asked me if I would like to review The Voodoo Doll Spellbook, I wasn't sure what to say. I have been a Voodoo priestess and anthropologist for over two decades and quite frankly, in my personal experience, the "Voodoo Doll" as most people imagine it just doesn't exist. I was curious to see what an entire spellbook on the matter would have to say about it.The Voodoo Doll Spellbook was written by Denise Alvarado, with … [Read more...]
