I simply would like to know if anyone has any experience with the system or even any of the text. I would like to get some.

I disagree. Many if not all of the demons of the abrahamic tradition were the daemons of the pagans. These intelligences root tradition seem to pre-date the those that classify them as malevolent spirits.

I have mixed feelings about Connolly and her system. I've tried calling a few of her demons using the enns and sigils with absolutely no result. On the other hand, it was her sigil and enn for Satan that actually propelled my work with him forward. However, once direct contact was established he directed me to use a more traditional seal from the grimoire tradition and I've totally stopped using his enn.
Overall, I would say worshiping these entities is generally a bad idea. While you can make the argument that SOME of them are historical pagan deities, spirits evolve alongside human beings. They are by no means "evil". Just "dark". And their energy/presence/whatever you wanna call it, can delude and lead you down an unsafe path if you don't have a 'counterweight' as it were. I think that's what the whole "command in the name of the LORD" stuff if really all about in the grimoires. I don't really do that, I treat them with respect and veneration, but when I feel their influence is getting to be a too much I take a breather and worship Deity.

I've never heard of the Enns but my class on Death and Dying briefly touched on Jinns in Islamic faith.
I grew up and was schooled Roman Catholic ("until I reached the age of reason" - Carlin) so have a natural attraction towards imagery of angels as depicted in that tradition. I've worked with Angels relevant to this tradition in readings, but the Old Testament always fascinated me more. That led to curiousity for Kabbalah ma'asit or Practical Kabbalah. Right now I'm just divining with different archetypes found within the Hebrew Tree of Life using the Angelarium Oracle, that deck likes taking my breath away (I like combining it with tarot for an extra punch in the gut). I particularly enjoy that the Angels have personalities that allow the reader to go beyond the dichotomy of good/evil.
When I was young I embraced duality and I either attracted or created two angels. Early thoughts understood them as two parts of a whole, opposite sisters or whatever. As I've relied on them through the years I think they're two personalities that individually meet different needs of mine, but also the whole is greater than the sum of its parts; they are synergistic.

I recall wondering why she would want to call 30 demons in 30 days, for no reason. She seems a fake. It was just one of her challenges. I give her a hard pass.
"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning." - Cormac McCarthy
