Beschreibung

Delve into the world of Ancient Egyptian and Irish magic, discover ancient magic books and ‘magical’ plants, and learn the difference between modern science and ancient magic. A real world school of wizardry? Yes, it exists! Healing magic in today’s world and modern attempts to use magic? Yes, those are real too.

In today’s world, the percentage of people who believe in magic as a real phenomenon cannot be easily calculated, as the number of believers is considerable, yet magic is not accepted as real by the general population. Are people who believe in magic nuts, or is there something to it?

About the Author

Introduction

The contents of this Wizard of Ends companion first appeared on a number of blogs during the October 2014 virtual book tour to celebrate the series’ release. I have republished the content, written by me, in the form of this companion so current and future readers have an interesting extra to read while waiting for the third book in the series. I have also included the first two chapters of Book 1 for those who have not yet read any of the series.

To the best of my knowledge, all the information relating to magic in the real world contained within this book is true. It blows my mind to think that even some countries’ governments believe in magic enough to attempt to use it! I hope you enjoy reading this free companion as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Are people who believe in magic nuts, or is there something to it?

There are many who believe that magic is real, but misunderstood. It is not, they say, like it is in the movies, where sorcerers hurl fireballs at each other and turn people into toads. Rather, it is subtle and less dramatic, and takes time to work – often up to a month or more.

If we want to get technical, many things that modern humans take for granted, such as electricity, would have been viewed as magic by ancient humans. The use of chants, colours, scents and herbs has long been a part of magic, and these things are now scientifically proven to have an effect on the human body and mind. Thus, one
