“Kurr's second installment in his magical series blends mystical-realism into a satiating and inspiring world of fantasy.  His dynamic characters, genuine knowledge of occult practices, and deep wisdom for the human experience make this is a must-read for the seasoned practitioner and esoterically-curious alike.”
