Curious if anyone has read this? I am starting it in March with an online book "club". It sounds promising! I will update here with my review.

Yep. Bought it  on a recommendation. Read it in two sittings.

Engagingly written, fairly solid magical system that makes sense for the context the authors give.

 

Reasonable levels of Trad Witch info, doesn't come off as Wiccan to me (though some nods to ceremonial magic and BTW) and provides a solid fundamental base that could take a new practitioner a decent way.

Has clearly been hit with the editing stick where some edgier topics have been glossed over a bit, but manages to avoid accumulating fluff in those places which is a point in its favour.

 

I'm adopting some of the tech. they use, but not the system as a whole, and (within reason) it does allow for this kind of flexibility.

Great! I started tonight and am loving it so far! Definitely different than the majority of books out there at the moment in my opinion
