Egyptian magic was performed for five thousand years or more, and as Claudia Dillaire points out, for a religion to survive that length of time is a true testament of how important the beliefs were to the people. Whether you believe in magic or not, Dillaire makes the case that rituals and spellcasting can have a cathartic effect. Introducing aspects of ancient Egyptian culture and its mysterious deities, Dillaire details the needed oils and herbs for 25 spells specific to this esoteric discipline, with instructions on how to cast an effective revenge spell—using such techniques as spitting, swallowing, breaking, fashioning figurines and red pots, and inscribing curse tablets and letters to the dead.
