Review by lkrough2
Great book on candle magick. Lots of information that you'll find useful for non-candle magick as well. Candles are my preferred spellwork, so I found this to be particularly useful. But the lists of correspondences and associations of colors, etc. will be useful for all. This book also gives information on how to make the ceremonies less Pagan and more Christian in nature.
Review by MarionII
This is an "okay" book for an absolute beginner, could have done with less Christianising but for a kick start into magic, it's fine.
