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.

Not a recommended research book for folklore. - Goodreads
I would do your own research after finishing this book. - Goodreads
Not a bad overview, but it lacks depth and breadth. - Goodreads
Or if they really believe what they are writing... - Goodreads

Review: A Field Guide to Demons, Fairies, Fallen Angels and Other Subversive Spirits

Käyttäjän arvio  - Avery - Goodreads

I read this book a really long time ago. It was a neat, more folklore-oriented introduction to spirits, etc. I was really into faeries at the time, so I enjoyed it quite a bit. Lue koko arvostelu

Review: A Field Guide to Demons, Fairies, Fallen Angels and Other Subversive Spirits

Käyttäjän arvio  - Francisco Becerra - Goodreads

A fantastic collection of folklore tales from all over the world, presented as the warning they used to be to warn ourselves from our own inner monsters. Lue koko arvostelu
