Now Most of you are going to ask me "Well your Doing a tour on this book, it must be good right?" Well heres the thing: I haven't read it yet, And before Cu reaches through her computer screen to whoop my butt, i want you all to sit an listen why. 
I did not read this book because i wanted to let you all know my thoughts before and after about it. So yes, there will be ala littleork on my readers here. You'll have to come back for part II for my actual review. And i can hear the screams now. You are all asking me "Why do a book tour if you havent read the book. Well, thats the good thing about it, i haven't read it, im not biased, but you can bet ill read it. The second reason i havent read it yet, is because i plan on buying a copy for myself. If im going to read it, im going to pay for it.
I have read Abomination ( see picture and links below ). I loved Abomination. It was my top pick for any book in the 2014 year ( and we still have 3 1/2 months to go before 2015 so thats something ). The Third reason is because im a chatty cathy and for some reason subconsciously ruin the endings for things without realizing it. 
I have read all the teasers for the book, and they are wonderful, I adore the cover ( Made possible by Wolf Paw Designs - Jared Rackler.  

I cannot wait to read this book, and i will be putting up part II in about a week when it I am all finished with it. Come for the cover Stay for the story, and Love for the characters. Below i have links to everything S Cu'Anam Policar, she is a great author and i expect many more good books in the Xosha storyline, Just like i know this will be.

Have a nice day all, And Blessed Be!!!

A strange white whelp found by The Gateway.
The winds tell her that destruction is coming.
That the horde can no longer remain in their home;
But no one will listen.

Rose has always been different.
Being mocked, abused, and shunned;
That's the story of her life.

The gods of her people whisper a dire warning to her.
An unknown enemy seeks The Diamond Isles.
She knows they must leave, to stay means their
She even knows where they mu
st go.
She has seen their "xosha" in dreams and visions.

Will she be able to convince the Oni to leave?
Or will the things the winds spoke of come to pass?

I didn’t ask to be what I am. 
I didn’t ask to be created. 
Everyday my very blood wars against itself. 
They don’t understand. 
They didn’t save me. 
They only turned me into an Abomination.

Book Review

You see this guy:

His name is B.P. Massa. he is the author of a great new book called "The Word in the Dark"

This is a great book for anyone who is looking for something that will keep them on the edge of their seats. 
I never really give 5 star reviews. and when i do its usually on something i will buy or something i can do over and over again. And with that, by definition this book has earned its 5 stars. as soon as i finished reading it, i started it again. and i feel like i still haven't gotten all of the "Holden Caulfield-Esque" wisdom that the main character portrays in such a dark situation.

Writing: When it comes to the Writing itself, B.P. Massa doesn't fall short. cleverly mixing words of every caliber with a fast paced storyline, he yields a great piece of writing.

Character Depth: i was joyed to see how much character depth was shown. With many books that are -200 pages in length, there really isnt much room for character depth. the author will just jump into a plot with these three character and build from there, revealing smaller notes about the characters as the story progresses. This book however, did not copy what i would consider a major shortcoming in some modern literature. starting the book off with emotion and building from a high point was a refreshing point of view.

i think all of you guys would really like this book. For my friends specifically; it hits on alot of topics i discuss on a normal basis and i really think you will enjoy it.

Daily Circle 4 / 1 / 2014

Well its been a while since i posted anything in the blog, stupid snow, me getting sick....twice, swapping my internet to another company. either way, im back and i'm going to start up again on my daily routine.

So here is a small meditation for today. i myself have memorized this meditation and i it and say it over again like a mantra in my head.

May this day be blessed with gifts
Lessons, understanding and friends
May my energy be a gift to all I meet

Let me be centered, healing and open
May I face the day with courage
kindness, insight and compassion

Ok so today i want to talk about something that has been troubling me for the past few days. On March 25th 2014 famous Pagan and Musician Kenny Klein was arrested for have "large volumes" of child pornography.

Now, even to me, this came as a large shock seeing as i have read some of his work and he is an amazing author.

But all that aside, we must look at the bigger picture here; What is this going to do for the Pagan Community?

Not many people on the outside of the pagan religion are going to look at this and not try and connect the two, and trust me i'm not defending this man for what he had in his possession, i'm just saying that something like this is going to reflect on us all.

My proof comes from first hand account of this correlation, when i was asked by a friend of mine who asked "because you are pagan, do you have to watch child porn?" this coming up after her reading the article herself.

Im not saying everyone and their grandmother is going to be more suspicious of us, but a few will and it seems that lately We all try our hardest to shed truth into the eyes of people who thinking we worship satan, but then one or two backslide with something in their personal life and then their connection to the Pagan Community is brought into the mixture.

So i think that today i want to bestow upon people the knowledge that as Pagans, we lead two lives. and until the day where Paganism is shown to be a "legitimate" religion in the eyes of the law, everything bad we do in our life will be connected to our Pagan life.

Placing it in easier to swallow words, all i can say is "Ignorance sucks".

Blessed Be All           ~Rook MoonHammer

The Daily Circle 2 / 18 / 2014

Well the snow doesn't seemed to be letting up  much. I have finally gotten internet back, but i still don't know if its going to be stable internet. So for right now i think I'm going to do today's Daily Circle, and forget of all the past ones i know i wont be able to catch up on lol.

So lets begin today with a small blessing:

May this day be blessed with gifts
Lessons, understanding and friends
May my energy be a gift to all I meet

Let me be centered, healing and open
May I face the day with courage
kindness, insight and compassion

May my spirit and body, honor this day

Ok so for today I thought I could Bring up a more current topic then the past few.

duotheism (plural duotheisms)
  1. Belief in and worship in two deities, usually framed as a god and goddess of roughly equal power.

Above is the definition for the term Duotheism. As the definition states, it is the worship of two specific deities. We in the Pagan community recognize this term when we think about our Patron God and Goddess. 

So what is everyones patron God and Goddess? if you dont have any, thats fine too. i know a few people who just say God And Goddess. Mine is Anubis, and Athena.

Daily Circle 1 / 26 / 2014

Ok so lets start off the day with a blessing:

May this day be blessed with gifts
Lessons, understanding and friends
May my energy be a gift to all I meet

Let me be centered, healing and open
May I face the day with courage
kindness, insight and compassion

May my spirit and body, honor this day

Ok so today i'm going to be reviewing a book i just purchased:

Ok so about a month ago men and my fiancee bought our first copy of Book Of Shadows New Generation Solitary Witch from Silver Ravenwolf. 

Prior to buying a copy for our own collection we had been using a friends copy they hadn't been using. Now that i am done reading the book, all i have to say is that it is now up with our most treasured of books. 

What is covered in such a great book as this you ask? well that is a great question my avid readers. not only is this book laid out in a form that it is easy to find even the most specific bit of knowledge, but unlike most pagan based books, it will start off with the basics and from there go into a more in depth look at things like correspondence tables, Gods & Goddesses, Alchemy, Angels, and much more. 

Just on the sheer size alone shows that many other books couldnt hold a stick up to the mass of knowledge. 

That is why I am giving this book: 4 Out Of 5 Pentacles

Daily Circle 1 / 25 / 2014

Ok so the past few days have been a little rough. i came down with a head cold so the Daily Cirlce didn't end up getting done. But fear not, for i am here to day to give the Daily Circle what it deserves.

So we start off today with a simple blessing:

May this day be blessed with gifts
Lessons, understanding and friends
May my energy be a gift to all I meet

Let me be centered, healing and open
May I face the day with courage
kindness, insight and compassion

May my spirit and body, honor this day.

Ok. so today i wanted to talk about something a friend of mine requested I cover on the blog. The past few months, covens in my area have sprung up that incorporate sex and drugs into their coven rituals.

Don't get me wrong, sex magick is a high level of practice. But drugs? mainly things like marijuana and damiana ( all mind altering drugs). And its really not even the fact that they are doing these acts in a coven environment, but they are mandatory practice for entry into the coven. I am very glad that i run my coven with my coven members opinions in my mind when making a decision like that ( not that i would). so should drugs belong in a magickal enviroment? should people be made to have sex for initiation? you tell me your opinion in a comment below. let your voice be heard.

Daily Circle 1 / 17 / 2014

Bright Blessings everyone!!!

Welcome to the first post of a new daily tradition. i wanted to start today off by bringing a spell to the table that i think could help a lot of us, me especially.

Sleep Spell

By this candle i do sleep,
Hidden from the day in the night so deep,
O lady moon, guide my dreams,
Cover me with your beautiful beams.
As the candle flame dies,
Please close my eyes

Allow me to wake,
In the light of the sun.

Wow makes me tired already.

Daily Circle
