Format: Paperback
This looks like a lovely book of poetic inspiration.

I would merely like to note that the Celtic tradition has no Moon Goddess. For the Celts the SUN was a goddess (Aine, arguably Rhiannon) though there was also Lugh/ Lleu/ Llew as a sun god. But no Moon Goddess In fact the Celts loved the sun and in their lore took little notice of the moon.

I admit I'm fairly expert on Welsh tradition less so on Irish, though not bad on general Irish deities.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nice mix of academic theory and facts and meditations/exercises to tune into the subject yourself. Well written and a good introduction to Celtic tradition based on academic research, instead of unclear assumptions on the subject.

What all Celtic Spirituality books should aspire to... 4 Oct. 2005
By Phillip A. Bernhardt-House - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sharynne is a wonderful person and a fantastic musician and ritualist, and this book reflects both her personality and her spirituality quite deeply. A wealth of research and consideration went into this book, and the references are both extremely helpful AND trustworthy, which is something that can't be said about many other books in the realm of Celtic spirituality and reconstructionism. Further, this book is one in which a variety of topics--shamanism, classical views of the continental Celts, insular Celtic stories and traditions--are brought to bear on the overall question. While one may not agree with the overall interpretation presented, what is given is also not presented dogmatically as the only possible way; no matter what, the average reader will come away with much more information than they had initially, and the specialist (both academic and those practicing Celtic spirituality) will also benefit from the point-of-view under which the evidence is presented. I commend the author greatly, and would unreservedly recommend this book to anyone who is a seeker in the Celtic traditions!

Brilliant Research That Will Appeal to All 19 Sept. 2005
By D. Champigny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book speaks to me on several different levels. The moon has always been a strong influence in my life and spiritual practice and Celtic/British mythology one of my favorite subjects. Sharynne's book has brought my two loves together. She has struck what in my opinion is a most difficult balance. There is much to learn here from a scholarly perspective, but it will also appeal to people who wish to incorporate Celtic spirituality and moon lore into their lives. Two thumbs up and five stars for a book that people will be able to go back to again and again over the years for juicy information and rocking spiritual material. I will eagerly anticipate her next offering.

ACCURATE AND INSPIRING! 28 Sept. 2005
By LAURA KIDDS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Queen of the night is one of the best books I have read so far on spirituality. So many books rehash the same information over and over....Wicca 101 and Goddess basics 101. This book is definately different! It is rare to find a book that provides historically accurate information in a spiritually inspiring setting. This book provides a solid foundation for so many aspects of moon worship and Celtic religion, and continues to take you deeper into the heart of each one. This book is a treasure trove of really authentic wisdom about Celtic spirituality...a rare thing indeed!

Queen of the Night: Rediscovering the Celtic Moon Goddess 17 Sept. 2005
By Charlene M. Shipman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sharynne MacLeod NicMhacha's first book is an excellent introduction to the Celtic material relating to the moon goddess. She provides enough background material for the beginner to follow her argument while mantaining a balance with more technical details to keep the more informed reader interested. Her book is a welcome bridge between popular and academic material on the subject of Celtic mythology. Hopefully more books by this author will be forthcoming in the near future.

Legends of Celtic moon mythology in thirteen chapters 10 Feb. 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Writer, musician, member of the Celtic band "The Moors" and practicing Pagan Sharynne NicMhacha presents Queen Of The Night: Rediscovering The Celtic Moon Goddess presents legends of Celtic moon mythology in thirteen chapters, structured to represent the moon's thirteen monthly and annual cycles. Meditations, ceremonies, and exercises to help one connect with the Moon and become in tune with its power in everyday life. As much a transformational book for the self as it is a discussion of how the Moon has been perceived since British and Irish prehistory, Queen Of The Night discusses both astronomical and spiritual manners in layman's terms. A readily accessible and welcome contribution to new age literature and reference.
