RECENT REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

  • Pagan Portals - Brigid
    Morgan Daimler
    A concise and immensely readable introduction to the Goddess Brigid. A wonderful work that balances lore with living practice. ~ Hugh Eckert, Witches & Pagans

  • Pagan Portals - Gwyn ap Nudd
    Danu Forest
    An accessible and welcoming path to Celtic mythology, welsh divinities and a nature-centered practice. For those interested in Celtic history and practice, this book would serve as an excellent addition to one's research shelf. For those who are brand new to the tradition this provides a gentle introduction that helps one to begin to understand the core concepts that arise so often in these practices. ~ Anthony Rella, Witches & Pagans

  • World State
    Nicholas Hagger
    A tremendous resource. The vision outlined in these books represents an important advance in political and constitutional thinking that must eventually manifest in our future institutions and global governance. It is a necessary historical and evolutionary process and one that deserves serious attention, particularly from a universalist metaphysical perspective that sees humankind as one and seeks the benefit of all. Nicholas has done a great humanitarian service in articulating his world constitution and outlining his proposal for a partly federal world state that can serve as basis for future development. ~ David Lorimer, Paradigm Explorer

  • Paths Between Head and Heart
    Oliver C. Robinson
    Brilliant, wide-ranging and engaging. The book is a significant and accessible contribution towards harmonising science and spirituality, head and heart, and as such points towards wholeness and integration as a further necessary step in our evolution. I hope it will be widely read. ~ David Lorimer, Paradigm Explorer

  • Barrier
    Mary Victoria Johnson
    After Evelyn is free, she finds herself not fitting into the real world. An offer comes that offers her the chance to free the others from Boundry. This was a great book in the same tone as the first. ~ Melanie Laing, NetGalley

  • Beat the Rain
    Nigel Jay Cooper
    I literally couldn’t put this book down, I became completely immersed in the somewhat dysfunctional lives of the characters. The end twisted and turned for me and I found myself reeling along with the characters, often finding myself gasping and open mouthed. Five stars. ~ Lea, Amazon

  • Hidden Worlds, The
    Sandra Ingerman
    Katherine Wood
    The Hidden Worlds is a beautifully constructed story which is woven by the blending of coming of age themes, high school antics, important environmental issues and fundamental aspects on shamanism. The book comes alive with its unique, yet relatable characters who discover their power animals and how working with these energies can help bring great change for their environment. As each character in the book discovers their own authenticity, the reader is able to naturally grow their understanding of shamanism through these characters’ experiences, whilst enjoying the story as it unfolds. The detail in which the book is written allows the reader to feel like they are living the story which adds to the fascination in reading the accounts of their journeying whilst waiting to discover what happens next.

    From an adult perspective, it is heart-warming to read and share this book with the family, especially as the younger members of the family show intrigue for the almost childlike, shamanic flavour blended with the portrayal of friendship, teamwork and acceptance of each other and are then able to apply these lessons to their own lives through family discussion. The Hidden Worlds is a book with so much to offer for the family as a whole, because it brings everyone together just like the characters who decide to work together to achieve a common goal in the book.

    Sandra Ingerman, an internationally acclaimed shamanic teacher and author and Katherine Wood, an experienced teacher and shamanic practitioner have produced by way of this book, a gem for any family home library which can also serve as a wonderful introduction to shamanism for our younger generation. ~ Badrunnisa Patel, Indie Shaman magazine - Issue 38, October 2018

  • Seven Ages of the Goddess
    Trevor Greenfield
    Seven Ages of the Goddess (edited by Trevor Greenfield) contains the collected voices and knowledge of a group of new and more established writers. Sourced from myth, folklore, fact, fairy tale and personal experience, it traces the hallowed history of the Sacred Feminine from the Stone Age to the present day and beyond.

    Divided, as the title suggests, into seven sections from ‘Ancient Goddess’ to ‘Tomorrow’s Goddess’ and containing subjects as diverse as the Stone Age Goddess, Lilith and Eve, the Eleusinian Mysteries, Mary Magdalene, Mother Goose, Gaia and Nature and the Goddess in the Machine among others, it also tells how She remained hidden within our culture and history, of Her eventual ‘rebirth’ in recent times and of the intersectional, nonbinary, and ever evolving
    nature of Her future aspects.

    This is one of those books you can sit down and read from cover to cover or simply pick and choose what draws you. Here you will find the Goddess in all Her pre-historic, Pagan, Christian, Techno-pagan and other forms. You will find much of interest, many ideas to question and a lot to think about. As it says in Jane Meredith’s excellent introduction, “The writings in this book can be an entry point, a confirmation, a provocation and a jumping off point for your own
    exploration”.

    Whether your relationship with Her is intellectual, emotional or spiritual, if you have ever wondered about the words ‘The Goddess’, their history or what they might mean to the world around you today, if you have just found Her or She has walked beside you all your life there is something and, perhaps, more than something in this book for you. ~ Martin Pallot, Indie Shaman magazine - Issue 38, October 2018

  • Pagan Portals - The Hedge Druid's Craft
    Joanna van der Hoeven
    Joanna Van Der Hoeven’s new release with Moon Books in the Pagan Portals series, The Hedge Druid's Craft, draws from the well-known practices of Wicca, Traditional Witchcraft (including the cunning artes) and Druidry. Using the techniques of ‘hedge riding’ to travel between the worlds and realms, the author directs the inquisitive reader into a clear understanding of how to work with boundaries and liminal space. These are a key to expanding magical ways of bringing back
    enchantment perhaps lost from our everyday modern lives.

    Van De Hoeven has written many books, primarily about aspects of Druidry, with her unique and well placed understanding of its place in the world. Her writing style is engaging and the book is written in a straight forward and concise way. The author is both instructive and encouraging, whilst maintaining authority of the subject. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on weather lore, something I had not studied before but am now keen to research further. I found her guide to using herbs and plants in the Plant Lore section, very informative and inspiring. I was also impressed that the author included her own personal experiences when appropriate, such as being privileged to witness a
    group of adders being born and being visited by a fairy, these very poignantly add to the credibility of each aspect of Hedge Druidry.

    I believe that anyone who is seeking a way of including different aspects of Wicca, Witchcraft and Druidry in their unique practice will find The Hedge Druid’s Craft an essential tool to enable success. This is definitely THE book for those whose spiritual beliefs overlap into different paths but who also want some structure to their practice. If this is you then you should definitely buy this book! ~ Thea Prothero , Indie Shaman magazine - Issue 38, October 2018

  • Emma Oliver and the Song of Creation
    Susan Elizabeth Hale
    The author Susan Hale is taking us in a delightful adventure filled with colorful characters. All the elements for a great story are present: The read is flowing and very well written. The feel is elevating yet grounded, punctuated with humor and mystery. The theme is filled with lessons in courage and trust: A young girl's initiation in saving the trees, finding her voice, moving though fears and darkness, involving being alone in much of her journey yet surrounded by loving support including ancestors, family, animals and lovable tree people. The characters, some bigger than life, seem to come out of mythology and are easy to visualize and to befriend. Their names are cleverly chosen. Even though I am far from the juvenile category, I so enjoyed hanging out with Emma and her friends...

  • Everyday Enchantments
    Maria F. DeBlassie
    I highly recommend giving it a try! The language itself soothes and whispers to the soul, though the content may not be the balm everyone needs. Medicine is only as powerful as one's need for it. ~ A. Beckert, GoodReads

  • Malaise, The
    David Turton
    The Malaise is an end of the world dystopian story that is frighteningly all too easy to imagine. The characters were all very enjoyable and pretty realistic. The main characters were quite well developed and I found myself truly caring about what happens to each character. The ending is left open to a potential sequel and I for one, would definitely like to know what's going to happen next! ~ Megan Vickers , GoodReads

  • Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest
    G.L. Davies
    Wow, just wow. Whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, this book will have you on edge from beginning to end. So G.L Davies who identifies himself as “John” really puts himself out there by telling how a malevolent home drove him and his then girlfriend apart and left them feeling empty, depressed, angry and John said even suicidal. Was it ghosts, demons, or simply bad energy? Maybe it was all of the above that created the Hell House they had once attempted to call home. I give it the 5 stars it deserves. ~ Irma Sage, Sagereads.wordpress.com

  • Anne of Cleves
    Sarah-Beth Watkins
    I really enjoyed Sarah-Beth’s style of writing and the book flows really well. You can certainly sense the desperation Anne must have felt during those uncertain six months. ~ Moniek Bloks, History Of Royal Women blog

  • Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest
    G.L. Davies
    Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest by author G.L Davies is a spooky, intense read! A perfect book for October! Full of creepy non fiction accounts of a couples dream house gone nightmare. Told in an interview dialogue, the book reads fast paced and fun! ~ Keirstin Smith , NetGalley
