For such a short book, Lugh is jam-packed with information any new seeker of Lugh would need. Morgan Daimler does a wonderful job sharing important information about the history of Lugh, His stories across different Celtic regions, and ways we as modern polytheists may connect with Him. I wanted to point out something I find very important.

This can make some names and words hard for an English speaker to grasp, but there is a pronunciation guide at the end of the book.
Fire Lyte’s new book, The Dabbler’s Guide to Witchcraft published by Simon and Schuster, is one of the better books on witchcraft that I have read in a very long time. In his book, Fire Lyte promises to deliver practical knowledge to help you build a better foundation in witchcraft whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been doing it for a while. In a book targeted at the average person with an interest in witchcraft, Fire Lyte manages to dispel many myths and misconceptions about witchcraft while offering different perspectives and food for thought.
This book was refreshing to see because of the way it approaches learning tarot. This is not a book that you pick up to learn the meanings of the cards.
Seasons of Wicca is a good resource for those looking to broaden their ritual collection.
Paganism for Beginners by Althaea Sebastiani is a refreshing book meant for those new to any pagan path with a focus on spirituality instead of spellwork.
Harmony is a wonderful human being, but her book really fell short for me. There were a few things that I did like about the book, so I’ll talk about those first.
