The pictures in this book are lovely, and it's well put together, but the information in it is even more fruit-loopey than most fairy books, and she has a strange view of light vs. dark. I found it slightly disturbing and wasn't expecting it in this book.

This work is almost like a mini coffee table book...lots of pretty pictures and tidbits of information and the writing is lovely, but overall it's not something you'd sit down with and then find it easy to put into practical application. It does talk a little bit about communicating with faeries and it does contain some spells, but it reads more like a brief overview than a full book. If each chapter had been expanded and gone further into aspects of the Fey and having a relationship with them, then it would have been a far more useful book in my opinion and not just a pretty one.

The spells in the book are old ones for the main part, which makes them both interesting and also difficult to actually do unless you make a lot of substitutions or have access to a fairly extensive garden. Sadly, their source is not credited. But calling this a Faery Spell Book is a bit misleading, since there are only a handful of them in the text. Perhaps, the most interesting was regarding the use of the "toadstone," which I have read of before...but not in this context.

The author talks about the Fey and their relationship to nature and how they fall somewhere between the angelic realm and the earth realm. This is probably based on the Christianized folklore regarding Faery, where they are sometimes referred to as being "fallen angels" who took up residence in the seas and earth and air. The author also calls the Earth Mother the "Earth Angel" and considers Her to be the Goddess.

In fact, there is a lot in the book that seems to be based on the author's own personal terms for things and hearken to a cross between Pagan and New Age beliefs. If this is your sort of thing, then you might like it. If you want your view of Faery to be unsullied by Christian or New Age overlay, then you might not like it.

Its a cute book and the pictures are nice and would make a okay present for someone into Faery, but not a book for those who truly wish to pursue deeper relations with the Fey. For that, I'd recommend reading works by Orion Foxwood and R.J. Stewart, among others.

This book was given to me as a gift a long time ago - it certainly isn't something I would buy for myself, so perhaps I'm not the most qualified person to review it considering I don't adhere to the belief system that author Claire Nahmad does (whatever that may be; it seems to be an old blend of pantheism, Christianity and Wicca), so consider this a "may as well" kind of review!

My overall impression of "Fairy Spells" was that it's an odd little book, with no real rhyme or reason to it. The stated purpose of it is to help people "see and communicate with fairies," but though Nahmad provides information on the most auspicious days and hours, the most likely locations, what to expect, and what spells or prayers to invoke in order to achieve this goal, she also goes off onto a tangent several times. Although the book does not have a particularly large page count, it includes several full-page illustrations, poems, meditation tips, anecdotes of her personal experiences and the "spells" of the title - though they appear to be more folk remedies, and aren't as prevalent as the title would have you believe.

In fact, there's so much going on in this book that it almost comes across as an anthology of various bits and pieces, and terms such as "Creatures of the Shadow" and "the Earth Angel" are dropped without any explanation whatsoever. I can only assume that these terms mean something to people involved in the religion itself, though there is a strange ideology at work here when Nahmad says things like: "There are angels of light and angels of darkness, and the fairies definitely serve the former. There are gruesome creatures who serve the dark angels, but we need have no fear of them." Though I don't think Christianity and pagan-based belief systems are necessarily incompatible, what is presented here feels more like a personal belief system Nahmad has created for herself rather than anything I've heard of in my (admittedly limited) knowledge of Wicca or pantheism.

There's nothing wrong with that of course, so long as you know what the buyer is getting for their money beforehand, but at times it all come across (as another reviewer succinctly put it) as rather fruit-loopy. Nahmad tells us:

"Visionaries of our age assure us that gathering around our planet is an ethereal mantle of divine light composed of angelic substance, imbued with the vibrations of higher intelligence emanating from a pure and elevated source in the cosmos," and on the next page: "Seers and physics assure us that in spite of our ravages of what the fairies hold most dear, in spite of the painful limitations of our truncated visions, the time is ripe and even urgent for the rediscovery of the enchanted fairy realms."

Really? What seers? What visionaries? Who is "they"? I'm pretty sure the likes of Steven Hawkings have never claimed that "angelic substance" orbits the planet. If you're going to include such fantastical theories, some citations would be helpful.

In terms of presentation, this is indeed a beautiful little book with glossy pages and full-colour illustrations. It's just that it doesn't quite seem to know what it *is*, and as such seems rather at odds with itself as a mishmash of ideas, theories and random thoughts. And if I let my cynical side speak, there is something to be said for the general way in which the "communicating" process is described: "you will need to speak to them in your heart, perhaps several times as you sit in solitude and silence, revisiting your chosen spot, before they will venture to trust you; and when they begin to communicate with you, it is likely that some time will elapse before they allow you to see their ethereal forms shimmering in the sunlight, or appearing like the lineaments of a dream as they dance translucent through soft mists and gentle rain."

I consider myself in touch with my spiritual side; but this just feels a little hokey to me, especially with the book's subtle-but-clear subtext: "if you can't see them yet, you're just not being patient enough."

This small hardcover book is illustrated with many famous paintings from the past. It's an interesting mixture of things, as the author talks as much about angels as she does about faerie, relegating the latter to things of children and vegetation and other "lesser energies." That's probably the biggest issue I take with the book. In many ways, she makes work with fairy seem almost formulaic, providing information on fairy hours and special days and what she calls "fairy dieties."

Some of the advice given is very Christian in orientation, making this a good book for those who see faerie in that way. In it she writes "I who walk with angels would walk with the fairies," and describes a secret well of the heart called the Cup of Mary. Her spells are formulaic as well, with lots of poetry, and they link fairy with angels in a way that isn't comfortable for me.

Although I don't particularly like this book, I agree with her writing on the use of imagination and intuition as gateways to faerie. She stresses the importance of attitude and intent in working with them and I agree.

The book makes no references to other books, and no bibliography is included. It's not one I'd particularly recommend.
