Pagan Portals: Lugh || Book Review

I had the pleasure of receiving an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions written in this review are mine alone.

"Lugh is a God of Ireland who is also found in other Celtic language speaking cultures, popular historically and just as well-loved today. A deity of kingship and battle, he led his people out of oppression. A God skilled in magic, he used his power to bless and curse. Multifaceted and known as the 'many-skilled', Lugh is an intriguing member of the Tuatha De Danann and we can learn a great deal about him through his mythology, by looking at his cognates in other related cultures, and his modern appearances." - Moon Books Blurb

The Inner Mysteries || Book Review

"A look into the underlying principles behind modern magic in Witchcraft, this investigation provides an integrated training system for both solitary Witches and coven-based trainees in the form of magical energy practice and cosmology. By fully explaining the values of Witchcraft, this work makes numerous Wiccan practices approachable, including Circle casting, raising energy, elemental work, and drawing down the moon. Illustrating how Wicca is a modern, nondogmatic, and dynamic tradition still in a state of evolution, this book also features a history of the spirituality of Witchcraft." - Amazon Description

Witch by Lisa Lister || Book Review

AN IMPORTANT NOTE!

I can no longer say that I'm "on the fence about this book". After being educated about the ways this book talks about the "womb" and "women", this book is transphobic and not inclusive to all who practice witchcraft or any form of "alternative" spirituality. This book is no longer one I would ever recommend to anyone at all. The link to purchase this book has been removed, but I will leave the review up for transparency.
