Sabbatica The Seas of Death and The Arcana of Death Bringer as compiled by Edgar Kerval

I know long ass title right. But don’t dismiss it just because of that. It’s 90% a very good read. I’ll tell you why in a little bit. We all know I will blast a book if it sucks ass. This book however I have mixed feelings on though they are primarily positive feelings.

It had thirteen articles, fitting, that I find quite intriguing. The art work was fitting and quite beautiful if you ask me.

The first 12 chapters I learned a lot from. I read up on different methods of calling and working with dead. Libations to offer and where to place them depending on where your ritual is. There is an essay on having a spiritual portal in your backyard that is really helpful as long as no one goes back there on the regular. It also tells of other places that you can place it. I leaned about the Necromantic Circle and the Necromantic Triangle of Evocation that makes me raise my eyebrow, and say really now? Looks promising. There are plenty of references from books that I have or will be getting that the authors mentioned in their works.

I enjoyed the Death and Resurrection Show, The Arte of Necromancy and the Calling of the Fallen, the Necromantic Ritual of Re-Awakening, Last Touch of the Great Prisoner (which has this awesome 9x9x9 journey that I am definitely including in my journey) and the Crown of Black Thorns which are heavily hi lighted and have notes next to them.

I also read more on Pula, Palo Mayombe and the Shuar People of the Amazon. Needless to say I will not be delving into those arts, as they are way above my head. And frankly I like being sane. They were an eye opening read regardless and have my mind just more reason to wander off and research.

There are more articles that the authors relay their personal experiences with death, and it comes off as being very deep and his you look at things in a different light. That I appreciates as they want to share their experiences with you, as well as help others on their own journeys.

No to the 10% that just pissed me off three ways to February 42nd. The last chapter is about automatic writing and I so a lot of it, so I was really looking forward to what wisdom this author had to share with the readers. This bullshit was, and still pisses me off the first paragraph is one sentence. It contains 173 fucking words, that will complete make you lose site of what the hell he was trying to say in the first place. Basically he was trying to convey how the spirit of a person can move around and connect with the divine around him in different faucets. Or at least that is what I hope he was saying. Because honestly I don’t when what the hell he was saying and it pissed me off. If you can not convey what you are saying, on a way that everyone can understand it, your automatically a dick and need to stop writing. I am glad you have a thesaurus that you use frequently, but to confuse readers so you seem more…”real”, will only have people like what? If I have to decipher your words, but a few more books to understand your “infallible wisdom” well you lost it on me. I will just move you to the list of authors I will never ever read unless I renounce my Satanic path and become a dick rider for Jesus. And that ain’t happening.

All in all the last 37 pages I disregarded. So I feel cheated out of this book. If it was printed again, his section should be removed and replaced with someone else that are on the levels of the other 11 authors.

Is it a good book to have? Yes it is? Can I say go out and get it? Not really. I feel cheated because an author decided to use every word known to man to describe something very simple. That automatically turned me off. For others who like to talk cryptic they may love it and be a follower of his work. I don’t like it and all I can say is look at the book and go off of your gut feelings. If you have no intention to ever do Necromancy work, by past this. This book is for those who are actually working in the current and want to add more to there workings. This isn’t a book to just read and that’s it.

But I did enjoy it.
