Book Review of Shadows: Utterly Wicked by Dorothy Morrison (2020)

"Let's begin with what makes this book special - the fact that cursing, binding, jinxing and otherwise casting "baneful magic" (I love how poetic that is tbh) is a rarely touched-upon subject in books for modern witches. This book covers everything from the different words for this type of magic, to common methods and ingredients, ethical considerations, and reversing hexes and curses. She doesn't shy away from including classic ingredients like the witch's own urine, but there are plenty of spells for most purposes and the reader can decide what they're comfortable with.
