More About the Author

Taken from author's website at www.luthaneal.com

I'm a British initiated Wiccan Priest, as well as a practitioner of Hellenism.
I've been a Pagan for a little over two decades now and in that time I've been involved with people from a variety of different paths.
In addition to my writing, I run different Pagan events in London and am the District Manager for The Pagan Federation London.

My written work is part of my attempt to give back to the Pagan community, by sharing what I have learnt over the years and hopefully making it a bit easier for those who are just finding their footing in Paganism.

Aside from this, my focus is towards my working as a Religious Education teacher in a secondary school, teaching young people between the ages of 11 and 16.

Product Description

The aim of this book is to help people who find themselves training with a witch coven or just considering it. The author concentrates on his experiences, rather than trying to pad out those experiences witha lot of general information on Wicca. There are already enough books on the market that provide the basics of Wiccan belief. This book opens a window into the process of training with a coven, both for the prospective trainees and for all those covens out there who may benefit from seeing things from the other side. All initiates were seekers once, maybe this book can help create a memory bridge back to what it was like to be a Wiccan trainee and put up a few signposts as to what may benefit future trainees. Surely all coven-training experience will be different - as different and varied as covens themslves, but maybe there is a thread of emotion and personal growth that we all experience as we undergo this journey. Maybe we all share similar uncertainties. You may find yourself uncertain regarding that ultimate question of initiation. If such uncertainties are shared between seekers such as the author, then maybe the knowledge of the shared weight will lighten the load a little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 2 Mar 2012
`The Book of Mirrors' is quite a unique book... actually it's a very unique book, the likes of which I've never read before. The market for Wiccan books is huge, as is the sheer number of titles out there, so for Luthaneal Adams to pull out this absolute gem as his debut is astounding.
What `The Book of Mirrors' actually does is present the road to initiation in a very honest, relatable way. I honestly can't see a way in which 'The Book of Mirrors', won't become essential reading for every would-be initiate and coven leader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful book 6 Feb 2012
Very well written, useful book for anyone following or interested in Wicca or paganism. Many books on this subject but not very many are so useful nor are as easy to follow and understand. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 31 Jan 2012
By Mage
I buy a lot of books of magick, Wicca and paganism but this is the first time that I have ever felt the need to write a review.
I picked up this book on a whim because I've been into Wicca for a while and saw it in a shop and thought it sounded quite different. Well, it is definitely different! It is easily the best, most informative book on Wicca that I have ever read!
Okay, it doesn't mess around with all the basics of belief like so many other Wiccan books do, but instead it goes right into what it really means to pursue Wicca and become a Wiccan.
I honestly can't recommend this book enough! Everyone interested in Wicca should read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars From a Seeker 30 Jan 2012
I'm copying the same review that I sent to the author here, just in case another seeker is thinking about purchasing the book :)

I just finishing devouring your book. And I say devouring since I've been unable to stop until finishing it after reading the first pages -though I had to have some sleep at night in the middle.

The title of 'Book of Mirrors' is, indeed, very appropriate, not just for it being the usual title given to that kind of book, but also for the fact that your book acts as an actual mirror; or at least, that's how it has been for me, and maybe has already been for others too. And, for sure, it will be for others in the future.

Conceiving an idea like this is awesome - something new, and needed. But it wouldn't have been the same if you had changed the way it was written, or it's honesty. In fact, it would have been a completely different book. Another book of how wonderful being a Wicca is. Another book not worth to spend the money on - at least in the current economical situation. A book that wouldn't have left me looking at it, once I finished it, just for a while, wondering what just happened.

It is ironic how the same 'synchronization' that you talk about in the book when performing a concrete exercise or ritual with other people and having some similar results, can be applied to the path of the seekers. One can find himself reflected in small and, at first sight, meaningless details like 'not wanting to give the impression that you want to overshadow your girlfriend or even let them think you are with her just for the contact'! Though it is even worse when you have a 'smart mind' that puzzles you and it makes you think if caring about that doesn't mean that you are actually doing it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very dissapointing 29 Sep 2013
By A Smith
I purchased a copy of this book as I was looking forward to reading the authors account of his journey towards initiation and the time he spent training with a coven, sadly most of the book is yet just another "I've discovered Wicca, I've learnt the basics which now makes me an expert, and I'm going to teach you everything I know!" Recounts of his time spent with the coven, and anything that would have been of interest, seem to all end with "ooh that's oath bound, so I can't tell you anything interesting." The book was dull, badly written and wouldn't be of any use to someone trying to find out what it is really like to train with a coven. He seems to like reminding us that this was the aim he set out with, sadly he failed.
