I liked this book. Budapest has a way with the written word. This book kept me interested until the very last page. The rituals were beautifully written. Some of the spells are not what you would expect from a Pagan book. The book contains love spells which some people would call unethical. This book also contains spells on how to hex people or bring them to justice. When reading the rituals it is almost as if you're there with her and the Goddess she invokes. Her stance is a feminist one and she makes sure you know it. One of the things I liked is how she didn't exclude men in the rituals. She doesn't hate them nor is she against them. This was refreshing compared to some books I've read.

What I didn't like about this book is her history and some of her politics. She subscribes to the theory of nine million people dead during The Burning Times. Budapest says her mother was the result of a immaculate conception, and her opinions on meat and women come close to being a conspiracy theory.

All in all, this was a good book to read. Critical thinking is a must in some areas, but if one can deal with Budapest's politics, one will find beautiful rituals and some very good ideas.
