I am a great fan of celtic witch Rochelle Moore - she has a couple of books on amazon; KARMA and AROMATHERAPY & HERBALISM however, i cannot wait for her new non fiction book called WITCH (counterculture books) www.amazon.co.uk- it already has lots of interest and is in my estimation one of the HOTTEST NEW RELEASES this year. It is due out on the 10th november 08 but already has lots of preorders on it....

I got caught by the truly dreadful 'aromatherapy & herbalism' because of the rave reviews but I should have remembered the old warning: if a thing seems to be too good to be true - it is ! I think the reviews she gets have a lot more to do with her fanclub (she seriously has one!!! check it out on google) than anything positive arising from her actual writing.

I was totally confused that so many people praised something that is just too awful to believe when you actually get it. I wrote an honest review of it on the American Amazon site which immediately got commented on by the author and others (have you ever heard of any other book getting responses so quickly? There "happened" to be 10 people who registered that they thought it was an unhelpful review within 24 hours - oh yeah?) and then a quick post after 3 days by someone who claimed they were a herbalist and that this book really was wonderful: their claims are so far from the book I read that I totally do not believe that this poster was a herbalist by any quantifiable measure that I'm aware of.

The fact this particular author has also written a book on Karma is too ridiculous for words as she fairly obviously doesn't believe in the concept at all from my experience of her. My personal feedback is to watch out for her books: if she's reeled you in and you think she's wonderful - you have my sympathies but go and get them if you must - but if you haven't then I'd try and avoid work from her.

I don't mind disagreements but I am deeply offended that my integrity and knowledge is called into question, by her and her fans, because I had the brass neck to post the truth about one of her products. One of the posts (that even Amazon modded) quoted the wiccan saying: An it harm none, do what ye will - on the premise I presume that the poster somehow thought I was harming the author. What about the author harming ignorant beginners?

BTW watch out for if she does end up doing something on Brisingr - she is apparently a "Celtic witch"
