Author: Edain McCoy
Trade Paperback, 224 pages

Edain McCoy is regarded as a poor scholar in the circles I run around in. However, Inside A Witches' Coven does not delve into a history of Witchcraft, instead focusing on the ups and downs of finding and belonging to a coven. It is chock full of common sense. Which requires a lot less work than researching the Gods of ancient times, but still is important to share with others. McCoy shines in this work.

After all, we all need to be slapped with a little common sense now and then (okay, some may need slapped with a lot). The ideas in this book are so simple, but someone overwhelmed with the urge to find a coven may ignore them without a little push to remember. Anyone searching for or thinking of creating a coven should read this book.

Some of the points covered are safety, trust, and organization. In this day and age, safety is something that we always can use a brush up on, and McCoy reminds us of warning signs and basic safety that could help steer away from less scrupulous individuals. Trust is also emphasized, and the concept of "Perfect Love and Perfect Trust" is well explained. For those founding a coven, the organizational information is invaluable. There is an outline of what kind of decisions need to be made before problems occur, types of covens, and planning for growth.

While I never thought I would say this about one of Edain McCoy's books, Inside A Witches' Coven will soon find a permanent place on my bookshelf.
