I loved every word.

There are a lot of folks running around these days calling themselves experts on Voodoo or Hoodoo, but Ms. Alvarado's Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook is the best I've seen in a long time! Very well done, and very readable - its like visiting a Voodoo practitioners home and being taught the secrets. I loved every word.

This book has very great insight about Voodoo

This book has very great insight about the history as well as the spells of this Voodoo Hoodoo practice. People don't understand this topic. Author gives great personal detail in easy to understand terms. Nothing to fear. The spells seem to be authentic and have shown promise as genuine working spells, as I continue to try more and more I am convinced of the Authors authenticity.

Lovely

I don't know where to start I'm very happy I brought this book it's full of information. The author outdid herself. What I like most about this book is that she went into a lot of detail, I love everything about this book I have received it on yesterday I just can't put this book down. Basically you have to have understanding and know how to comprehend.

I love it.

I love this book, especially the conjure oil recipes. The author went into a lot of detail throughout the book, but I especially enjoyed the oil recipes. I did have to do a bit of research though on some of the ingredients, and in the process, I learned that some ingredients go by different names, though that wasn't stated outright in the recipes. I got the kindle edition, and noticed a couple of typos I think but this is a solid book - I love it.
