This book is about a magical event that has been around for centuries: candle spells. Those who practice Wicca are very serious about this simple ritual. This book is not only for those who practice Wicca but also for those curious about how to attract a desired occurrence by magic when the motive is right, the desire is pure, and the belief is strong.

Could have done with the seriousness and faith elements being at the beginning.
Very American viewpoint, emphasis on wealth mostly, extremely simplistic.
Some interesting bits though.

Little too weird. Themes of incest. Not for me.

Just a bit too wrong tbh. Not even sure it's legal really? Bit borderline. Couldn't finish it.

Really enjoying the plot and the universe of this series so far, my one big reservation, as a listener, is the authors writing style.
His insistence upon continually using the phrase "he/she said" in close proximity is extremely annoying. There are literally hundreds of other words that could replace the word "said" in a sentence, there are also hundreds of phrases that could replace "he/she said" many of which could denote feeling, tone and intent, to rely upon this one phrase is both lazy and incredibly, annoyingly, repetitive.
