5.0 von 5 Sternen Bin beeindruckt 2. Juni 2003
Von Foxlight
Format:Taschenbuch
Ich war ziemlich überrascht als es gekommen ist, da es schon mal doppelt so dick ist, als ihre bisherigen englischen Bücher.
Es ist mehr wie eine magische Enzyklopädie aufgebaut (würde ich sagen), die unheimlich gute Erlärungen, Tipps und Übungen enthält. Es sind auch ein paar Zaubersprüche bzw Rituale dabei, aber es lebt nicht nur von diesen.
Ich denke nicht, dass es etwas für Anfänger ist. Es ist eher für die Leute die bereits ihre eigenen Sprüche schreiben und Anregungen, Referenzen und Korrespondenzen nachschlagen.
Ich muss sagen ich war sehr beeindruckt (und das ist nicht leicht).

Ich weiß, an den Büchern von Silver RavenWolf scheiden sich die Geister der Wicca-Gemeinde. Der Schreibstil entspricht dem einer Mutter, die ihr Kind im Teenageralter in ihre Wicca-Tradition "einweisen" will. Das dürfte auch der Grund sein, warum viele Themen, die eigentlich untrennbar mit der British Traditional Witchcraft (Gardnerian & Alexandrian) verbunden sind, nur ganz am Rande behandelt werden oder ganz fehlen (Scourging, Skyclad...). Wieder andere Themen würde man in einem Buch über BTW wohl vergeblich suchen, ich sage nur: Zauber gegen Akne... Da ich ihre Bücher aber bisher immer unter genau diesem Vorbehalt gelesen habe, konnte ich nie etwas schlechtes an ihnen finden. Man muss einem Minderjährigen ja nicht gleich die Farrars um die Ohren hauen... (damit kann man ja warten, bis er oder sie, sagen wir mal, 18 ist... bis dahin tut's auch Cunningham.) An manchen Stellen wundert man sich vielleicht, was gerade dieses Thema mit Wicca zu tun haben soll, aber einen kurzen Abschnitt über Reiki oder Ähnliches zu lesen, stört mich persönlich nicht unbedingt. Manch einer mag das anders sehen, klar, aber ich finde es sogar ganz angenehm, wenn ich auch das ein- oder andere ungewöhnliche "Stichwort" in so einem Wälzer vorfinde. Dieses Buch ist sicherlich nicht der Quell der Allweisheit, aber ein paar nette Anregungen kann man darin schon finden und für einen Novizen im Teenageralter ist es sicherlich hilfreich, viele grundlegende Themen in einem Buch versammelt zu haben. Insgesamt würde ich sagen: Kann man durchaus lesen, muss man aber nicht unbedingt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ich liebe dieses Buch!!!! 28. August 2013
Von Teresa
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Sobald dieses Buch ankam konnte ich es nicht mehr lassen:wer richtig und gründlich über den Wicca-Pfad lernen möchte, dann ist dieses Buch unentbehrlich.Viele halten die Autorin für kontrovers, ich denke man sollte eher offen für neue Kenntnisse und Wissen sein, nur so kann man ihre Intention verstehen. Sehr ausführliches Buch, optisch sehr schön, halt ein Buch für Hexen!

1.0 von 5 Sternen All ye who enter here are in trouble 16. Juli 2003
Von W. Lambdin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I had read some titles by Silver RavenWolf, and purchased this one.
I can NOT recommend this book to anyone is good conscience, and I have so many problems with this book; I hardly know where to begin.
Ms. RavenWolf is into getting you to practise her spells instead of giving you the knowledgs and tools to write your own.
Simply reading the words without your intent and energy behind them; you might as well say Hocus pocus!, Shazam!, Abracadabra!, etc.
I am very disturbed by the fact that the author did not even devote one sentence to discussion of the Rede, and teaching the newbies the "ethics" of magic. All magic has a boomerang effect. What you send out is visited on you.
I need to speak to a few matters in the book.
Page 20: "She is the Maiden, Mother and Crone, Shr is the sacred trinity of all religions, Indeed, She is the Holy Ghost"
I am a devout Pagan, and have no love lost for the religion calling itself "christianity" today. However; this sounds as if the author is trying to confuse young people that Wicca is compatible with "christianity".
Before a person has reached adulthood; Neither I nor anyone else have the right to interfere with the spiritual guidance of your parents or guardians.
Page 122: altar layout illustration
The altar layout is entirely too complex. Many people do not have all of the tools or feel the need for some of them. Do not become concerned that you can't do magick because you do not have hundreds of $ to spend on tools.
Start where you are. Cut a limb from a tree and use it as a wand, use tealight or votive candles, use a kitchen knife for an athame, pick up two rocks to represent the God and Goddess, you might visit yard sales, and pick up ceramic figurines of birds, etc.
Page 173: "Most magical people begin working with totem animals by choosing their favorite creature."
I thought this was to be a book about Wicca instead of a book on Shamanism. Furthermore; the totem animal chould choose to work with you; not the other way around.
Page 320: "Reiki is s channeled form of energy healing that originated in Japan"
I am a Master/Teacher or higher in five different forms of Reiki, and can state categoricaly that Reiki is not part of the Wicca system or vice versa.
Page 372: "To understand where the concept of demons comes from, we have to look deep into history and the split between the Pagan belief system and Christian superstition used as a vehicle to control the people."
I have no use for "christianity", but I am deeply offended that the author gives her belief credence; but relegate "christianity" to superstition.
Page 435: "Citrine Purpose: Anti-nightmare, protection, psychism".
The Author has Citrine and Amethyst confused here. Citrine is healing, and works withthe 2nd and third chakras. Citrine is one of four stones that do not need to be cleansed of negativity. The other three stones are Kyanite, Obsidian, and Selenite
I sincerely recommend that you leave this book on the book shelf.
If you are insterested in Wicca; see my Wicca listmania list, or investigate the writings of Scott Cunningham, Amber K, Marian Green, Paul Tuitean and Estelle Daniels, and Dorothy morrison.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Love/Hate... Leaning more towards contempt... 7. Januar 2004
Von Skye Synnestvedt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Let me start this off by tearing into it, that way we can end positively =)
This was the first book I bought starting off in my Wiccan studies. I opened the page to circle casting and was dumbfounded that a topic so seemingly complex could be summed up in - what? - 3 pages?! I knew nothing about Wicca, but I went along with it anyway... since I agreed with the philosophies and needed to start somewhere, anyway. Now that I have read numerous others, I can say that this book was a complete disgrace. All right. So Ravenwolf is the most publically-established Witch around, so of course it's going to be advanced. And it's a great referrence book... But unlike other books, this one did not OFFER tips to Spellcraft. She just typed up her own personal BOS. You can NOT simply put your own spells in there! The acoutrements and the motions mean absolutely nothing when you have no idea why you're doing what you're doing or what the words you're saying mean... I feel that this book encourages the production of the "fashionable Witch" - IE: Go through the motions, get to be part of a cool subcultural "cult".
Not that her intentions were poor, I'm sure. Simply put, it is unwise to print your own Book of Shadows verbatim, as many will take every word as holy writ... However, this book has been exceedingly useful to me at a later time, now that I can look back when I need a memory jog for say, the terminology for counterclockwise movement of a casted circle, runic symbols, etc... There's darned good stuff in here. I simply don't recommend it for beginners, nor the naiive (when it comes to following every word.)
WICCA IS A PERSONAL RELIGION; THERE ARE NO BIBLES AND TO FOLLOW SOME ONE ELSES' RENDITION OF SPIRITUALITY WITHOUT QUESTIONING IS TO FOLLOW BLINDLY! Always remain true to your own heart. Wicca lies within yourself, not the pages of any book nomatter how well-written.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Teenage Witch/Wiccan point of view [3.5 stars acatually] 12. März 2004
Von a - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm a praticing teenage Witch and Wiccan, and I have to say that this book is pretty informative, though not the best place for spells and such. Yes, Ravenwolf does "dumb" things down, but for super beginners and young teens, I think that it's appropriate to do so as to not confuse them.
This book contains *a lot* of information that you cannot find in most other beginning/teen Wiccan books. It contains info on auras, charkas, runes, explanation of the major and minor tarot, and much more.
Yes, this is *not* the place to go to for spells because there really aren't any, and they take about 10 minutes to complete, with circle casting and all.
If your looking for information on Wicca than I suggest that you either buy this or Scott Cunnigham's "Wicca - A Guide for the Solitary Practioner." Both are pretty good though I would go for "Wicca" before you buy this. Both are good, but, "Solitary Witch" does contain more information, while "Wicca" contains better [and more] spells and chants.
Overall, is it woth your money? I would say yes, if your a beginner and/or a teenager. It contains a lot of information that you cannot find in other beginning or teenage books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Solitary Witch: The Ultimate Book of Shadows.... 26. März 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
INDEED! This is the ULTIMATE book of shadows! It is comprehensive, in depth and gives one profound insight into The Craft. Silver writes with her usual humor, sincerity and groundedness. As a purveyor of many different "Books of Shadows", and other Pagan and Wiccan authors, I give this one a A++. She goes into depth on many, mnay subjects related to the Craft. It is deep, yet understandable and not at all "wu-wu." The only thing I can't understand is why people think it's mainly for the younger generation. I'm 51 and very well read and I found this masterpiece truly enlightening!
Many thanks, kudos and blessings to Silver for helping us all on our individual and sometimes lonely paths!
Sincerely,
Moonrose (Kathleen Wilson)

2.0 von 5 Sternen What Happened Silver? 8. Oktober 2004
Von R. Brookes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I Am very disappointed with this book. I own and highly recommend "To Ride A Silver Broomstick" to anyone who is fairly new and interested in The Craft. I also own "To Stir A Magic Cauldron" which in it's own right is pretty decent. So when I saw a book that is being advertised as a "Book Of Shadows" For a solitary Witch, By Silver Ravenwolf, I was very excited and purchased it.

That was a mistake. I am a fairly adept Wiccan, however I am always reading and learning, and suggesting to people just beginning, or even just interested in learning new things, like myself. You can never learn or read enough. Wicca should be a constantly flowing religion.

This book is not helpful, I have NO problem with folk Magick, or "kitchen Witchery" I actually have a great respect for it, so that is not at all what I am complaining about.

The biggest fault of this book is, it is not advertised as a book for young adults or teens, and it is! It has a condescending writing style that I am not too sure even if i was 15 years younger I would appreciate. Some "Spells" in the book can be used to fit some small needs, maybe. It just has terrible references to teachers, fellow students, Proms. Gee, This is a little silly for anyone who is not a young EARLY teen, sort of interested in dabbling in Magick, Which could actually be dangerous if not done properly. Anyone in that realm (new to Wicca) should pick up a Cunningham book, and anyone who has had more than a few months, maybe weeks reading about Wicca should seriously invest in a Christopher Penczak book, they are intelligent and informative.

Again I am very disappointed with Silver Ravenwolf, She WAS one of my favorite Wiccan Authors. I wish she would refocus her attention to the adult Pagans, and if she does write a book directed towards teens or preteens, advertise the book that way!

If you are a solitary Witch and want a book to further your education on the craft, do not bother to pollute your mind with this drivel. Believe me it actually pains me to say that about a Ravenwolf book.
