With its easy-to-use instructions and engaging, accessible design, its a must for anyone hoping to make dreams come true

For the record I bought this book on Ebay very long ago, (2015) back when I was 13 years old and interested in witchcraft and supernatural stuff. But along the way something happened and I’m very skeptical person now. With that being said lets get into the review.

As you might expect this book is nothing but “spells” which will help you get rich, turn into werewolf, find love, turn into vampire and other not so clever things which can’t happen by just lighting candles and saying some words in the woods. 

I can’t say much about these so-called spells because I don’t know who people review spells but if any of you know that please let me know.

After going doing my research on Goodreads about this book I found out that most of the people who have read this book liked it but I didn’t.

The language in this book was pretty simple but some explanations were really hard to understand. It might be something to do with English being my second language but yet again I never read any spells before this book.

As I’ve said above I’m very skeptical person when it comes to everything out of the ordinary and magic is one of these things Im very skeptical towards. And this person didn’t do a good job at conniving me that magic is real.

For the most part it felt like a textbook from the Hogwarts which have been removed from the use. And it wasn’t even good enough for Hogwarts because it felt like it was trying way to hard to look like something from Hogwarts but not fitting. 

I give this book 1 / 5

“The Last Days of Jack Sparks” By Jason Arnopp Review

Jack Sparks died while writing this book. It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he’d already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed. Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account. Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed, until now.

I personally had high expectations for this book which it didn’t live up to.

This book is sort of a horror and paranomal book, which had the potential to be good but wasn’t that. It would be much better if we first got to know Jack and his investigation and then throughout his brother which is also in this book we would learn what have happened to him.

I need to give this book points for being funny and the fact that I personally could relate to Jack at the beginning.

The story itself was amazing but wasn’t used in the right way as I metioned above. The story had the potential to create this book one of the best horror books but all we got is a skeleton of a story.

Story started off right up my alley and I thought that I will love it. But after around 80 pages all I wanted is the book to end as fast as possible. An Italian exorcism that Jack gets permission to watch for his next book, the whole principle of the story sounds very interesting, but we as readers need much more than just a good idea for a book.

The main character Jack, was at the begining an amzing character he was sort of a jerk and a huge skeptic in the paranormal which I also am so it made it very easy to releate to him. But after around 100 pages he became more and more annoying. And the rest of the characters in this book was sort of just there to fill the story.

This book was definitely an odd book which had a big potential but it wasn’t scary or even close to it. So this book won’t get points for that.

The writing style was okay, but it could be better than it was. There were points in this book where the writing style was insufferable.

The ending is sort of hard to describe or say anything about without spoling anything for you. All I can say is that it was weird.

Overall this book was entertaining at times but it lacks elements which would make this book good or anthing close to it.

I give this book 1 / 5

"Czarna Madonna" by Remigiusz Mróz Review

98Irish Airlines Boeing 747 was due to land in Tel Aviv at three in the morning. He never made it to the site and contact with the machine was lost somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea. There were 520 people on board, including Philip’s fiancée, who was to make a pilgrimage to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. For the first hours, Filip believes that the plane will find itself. There is no indication of an attack, the coast guard does not find the wreckage, and from time to time the air traffic control receives a signal from a transponder. What happened to the Boeing? How is his disappearance related to similar events?

This book is sort of a religious horror if you can name this book as so. It is definitely a horror book which involves a lots of religious artefacts in it. So take that for what you want. It is important to point out that this book at the time of writing this review is only available in polish.

The whole plot was unique and interesting. But if you are not a religious person or you believe in some other religion than Christianity than you will find this book bad or confusing just like I did. Because it involves a lots of artefacts and details from Christianity which for someone who doesn’t know much about this religion will find confusing.

This book have a lot of positive opinions about it. But in the end this book could have been better.

We have two main characters in this book. These two characters are named Filip and Kinga, yeah I know very polish names. But they relationship is confusing a lot. Because Filip was a priest and Kinga is the sister of his fiancé. And they two have sort of a thing between them and the reason why Filip was dating her sister was because he wanted to be close to her. Yeah confusing. And throughout this book, there are points where Filip begins to have the huge monologs in his head about how much he wants to be together with Kinga not her her sister.

We have couple of characters in this book. But all of them expect of Kinga and Filip are boring and flat. It almost feels like the author didn’t care about all the other characters expect of the two main characters. However there are times when Filip feels so damn flat as a character and he the typical priest which basically goes “sorry, cant do that its against the stuff I believe in”. But there also times when he goes from the typical priest to a person who hires a medium and thinks that it will solve everything.

There are times where Filip acts like a complete teenager and most of the time when this happened you can expect that it involves Kinga. And it is important to say that when his wife come back at the end of this book it feels like they two are enemies and not dating and about to get married.

Writing style is pretty much good. The writing makes it easy to get quickly through this book. And the language is easy almost too easy.

Ending is confusing even more. There is a huge twist at the end which took me almost a day to understand. But the ending really isn’t so good as the rest of the book.

The whole idea behind this book is amazing. The idea of Filip being a retired priest and him sort of being possessed by demons together with that twist at the ending is priceless. But there are a lot of things which could have been better with this book.

The beginning is good, and there are times where this book goes down hill but in the end this book is pretty decent.

There are times while reading this book when you will get the feeling that this author was heavily inspired by Stephen King and Dan Brown while reading this book.

The action is that interesting as it could have been if the author had chosen to add more into the book. Because there are only one thing happening at anytime. It would be more interesting if there were more things happening at once.

I give this book 2 / 5

“A Scream of Angels” by Joseph Nassise Review

100Necromancers, revenants, even a summoned demon or two – they’re all in a day’s work for the men of the Echo Team and their enigmatic leader, Cade Williams. But nothing could prepare them for the fury they are about to face…When a Jesuit priest wanders out of the New Mexico desert, telling wild stories about a secret research installation and bloodthirsty demons hunting through its halls, the Echo Team is called in to deal with the situation. Their orders – investigate the facility, determine exactly what happened there, and deal with any infernal presence that might exist.But the being they encounter there beneath the desert sands has found a way to break the bonds of Hell itself and doesn’t plan on going back easily. This time, their foe might prove to be too much for even the best the Templars have to offer.

A Scream of Angels is the second book in the “The Templar Chronicles”. And the whole series is kind of a Paranormal Fantasy type of series. There are demons, ghouls, swords swat team which can fight against the paranormal, etc in this series.

This book isn’t an advanced read, its rather a relaxing and fun read. Which you may want to get after you read something very heavy.  Generally this book isn’t a good book but it isn’t either a bad book, mostly it is an okay book.

This book is interesting but it’s not even close to what I’ve expected from it. This book is fun to read but it also have a lot of boring or even cringe parts every now and then. It isn’t a big deal after all.

The writing style is for the most part decent, it isn’t bad but it isn’t good either. There are some moments which made me feel like it could have been written better. There are also stuff which have would better instead of the stuff which was actually written in the book. In the end these are small things but together they are actually not so small. However this book or the book series isn’t for the most part meant for someone PH.D degree, but rather for teens who likes to read.

There are couple of plot holes in this book. an example can be the mirror-traveling-ish. There are a lot of magic in this book which I found confusing and hard to follow with. One of the main plot holes which blow my mind was at the beginning of the book when one of the main characters magically healed out of nowhere after being injured and almost dying

The characters are okay. Most of them were like pretty okay, they weren’t interesting enough but there weren’t neither completely trashy.  The main characters was some kind of better than the side characters. Because you could feel the relationship which they had with each other.

This whole book feels like something which kids in grade school would read. But it also works fine for adults who are starting their adventure with fantasy books or books in general. Because it is an easy to understand book and you don’t need to have PH.D degree in fantasy knowledge to like and understand this book. It is a good book when you want to shut down your brain and just relax for a moment.

This book works fine as long as you don’t question anything which is happening in this book. Stupid decisions taken by the characters is also something to keep in mind if you considering to read this book.

The story itself feels like it was used somewhere, but in the end it is good and pretty interesting overall.

This book gets 2 / 5
