I want to state up front for the record that I am not on
Eschaton's payroll. ::grin:: I just think they put out good
That said. . . .
This is the second book on this subject that I have read in as
many months. Unlike the first one, I found Candle Magick useful
for more than just making candles. Once again, Eschaton has
provided a book that fills a niche.
As the subtitle states, this is a guide for novices at
spellcraft. The author starts with the basics -- such subjects
as ethics and history -- and smoothly moves into equipment needed
and how to set it up. This is a small book -- only 88 pages --
yet it is packed full of information. This is not a cookbook
of rituals. Instead it is a tool to teach you how to understand
and use the techniques of candle magick.
I admit I did disagree with a couple of statements -- like the
use of black candles. But overall, I found it useful and well
written. I recommend it.
