If you met a werewolf in a forest at night, would you be able to tell what he really was? Could you resist the dark charms of a vampire or the lure of a fallen angel? Seductive, thrilling and often highly dangerous, you may recognise these inhuman beings in books and movies - but if you came across one in real life, would you know how to escape their clutches?We have already been sucked in by vampires and eaten up by zombies and this year, angels, werewolves and demons of all kinds are poised to cast their spells over us. No self-respecting lover of the otherworldly can afford to be without this indispensable guide, which will help you navigate the shadowy realms of these subversive spirits, and tell apart the mysterious from the mischievous, and the virtuous from the vengeful.

This book is proving difficult to get through. It is a rough compilation of folklore from around the world. A light read but not as captivating as I had hoped. Lue koko arvostelu
