It would be easy to say this is a delightful little book for beginners - but Lucya Starza packs so much information into 25,000 words that it qualifies as a must-have introduction to the fascinating subject of candle magic. I particularly like the down-to-earth, chatty approach that reads like a casual conversation around the kitchen table - by candle light, of course. Candle magic is one of the simplest, yet one of the oldest, most powerful forms of spell-casting and an essential addition to any witchs toolbox of tricks - so if you want to discover more about the glittering, shimmering, flickering, dancing world of candle magic then this is the book for you. --Melusine Draco, Principal of Coven of the Scales and author of the Traditional Witchcraft series of books

My guess is it'll get used a lot.
And not only by those who are new to the Craft, but also those far more familiar with the Old Ways, who know there is always more to learn.
Lucya Starza teaches well.
I like the way, right from the start, she talks magic - with a simple spell. It's engaging and informative, with the promise of good things to come; and she does not disappoint.
From the types of candles, colours and correspondences, herbs and crystals to scents and oils - the first section on spell work is jam packed with information, delivered in an easy writing style.
The following three sections on ceremony and ritual, psychic work and the history of candles delve deeper into a fascinating subject which in all its apparent simplicity, forms the basis of the Craft itself.
I enjoyed it very much.
I am tempted now to make my own, am relieved to find a use other than firelighters for the left-over wax and I'm glad the history of candles was mentioned last in the book. Not because I don't appreciate it, the roots of anything are an important piece of the puzzle of creation. And knowledge of origin, as the author says, can help get the magic into context...
She also says she doesn't think it's as interesting as doing spells, which really made me smile as I'm right with her on that one. Too many facts and figures just clog the psychic juices up.
But with Lucy Starza, that is never going to happen. She loves magic too much, which is easy to tell by this testament to the sacred art and one of its most effective tools in the box.
Candle Magic is flaming good!

Mélusine Draco, Principal of Coven of the Scales and author of the Traditional Witchcraft series of books
For a small book it packs a lot of information. It is a very practical book as well. It offers plenty of magical activities you can try with materials from your own home and kitchen. No need to acquire a large amount of esoteric equipment or ingredients!
Even if you have not tried working magic before, this book offers plenty of suggestions. Always with a reminder of the health and safety aspect!
Lovely small book!
