Mini Book Breakdown 

*ARC received in exchange for an honest review*

So let's say you're getting into witchcraft and how have no idea how to set up an Altar, well, this book is for you! Not only does it go over altars but it also gives a little bit more in depth about altars. Some of the altars in here I'd never even heard of! Like Digital ones, a dashboard alter. Very creative and fitting for those that are more modern in their craft. 

The writing is direct and easy to understand, the authors never once talk down to the reader but always like they just talking to you. I love when authors do that, makes the book read so much better.

If you are looking for a new type of alter, this is also a good book, they talk about Voodoo alters and even their own, which I thought was a great personal touch. So really, this book has just about everything you need to know about alters, even a blessing ritual. I love that these two very different voices were able to make sure a great book, I can't wait to add this to my bookshelf for reference.
