    "Let’s face it, most pagan anthologies suck. In most cases the only people who read pagan anthologies are those who contributed to them. Hekate Her Sacred Fires however, is not one of those anthologies and is still my favorite anthology to date. Edited by author Sorita d’Este, the founder of the Covenant of Hekate and the worldwide Rite of Her Sacred Fires, Sorita is considered a modern expert on the history and devotion of the goddess Hekate. The book features over fifty different authors and it’s the diversity of these authors that bring this anthology strength. Hellenic Reconstructionists, Wiccans, Theistic Satanists and daemonaltors, Theurgists and Pagans and Occultists of all flavors lend their visions of Hekate to showcase what a vastly encompassing and complex goddess Hekate is. This anthology is a cornucopia of diverse ritual, poetry, art, personal experiences and musings on Hekate. Coming in at 307 pages, the book itself is a just slightly larger in size of Raymond Buckland’s “Big Blue Book”, so it’s not a very small anthology."

    "I gave this one less star simply because there are a lot of words written in Greek that are not immediately translated for the reader. I understand this being a scholarly work it is written for a specific audience, one that probably knows those words without translation into English. But I am not such a person so for me, I took off the star simply because I would have liked those words translated (Perhaps in parenthesis next to the word or in footnotes) for my own ease of reading. Other than that, I'd say this is a five start work. Definitely worth the money and a great resource for anyone studying Hekate."
