This Dorothy Morrison book is obviously intended by the publisher to be a companion to the author's recent book, The Craft: A Witch's Book of Shadows. However, as this book is a journal designed for recording one's own thoughts, magickal operations, rituals, etc., it stands quite well on its own.

Most bookstores carry diaries and bound blank books designed for recording one's one thoughts and ideas. The Craft Companion is one of these blank books with a magickal twist. Only every other page is blank. Facing each blank page is a simple spell. If I counted correctly, there are 111 spells in this volume. Most are purely verbal. None require elaborate rituals. There are, however, a wide variety of spells. As with most Morrison spells, the chants she gives are well-written and rhythmic. Most flow well, helping the user to focus his or her full energy on the magick intent of the spell.

Morrison has a brief introduction explaining how one might use the book. Also included are a version of the Wiccan Rede and glossary of one line descriptions of the deities mentioned in the book. There is also an index of the titles of the spells presented in the volume.

If you would like a nice, spiral bound lined journal to record your magical process, your thoughts, or to be a first Book of Shadows, The Craft Companion might serve you well. The spells, while nothing spectacular, are a nice bonus. My only real problem with this book is the price. It's a bit high for a blank journal. Even the spells can't quite make up for this. If you are mainly looking for Morrison spells instead of a journal, I'd suggest buying her Everyday Magic instead. It's cheaper, has more spells, and goes into much more detail on each spell and on magick in general.
