"Strix Craft is an intriguing approach to modern witchcraft inspired by ancient Greek lore. ... Highly practical, the author covers magical tools, herbal lore, mythology and devotional rituals, and a large number of spells for love, healing, protection, and more, all informed with an ancient Greek aesthetic. Strix Craft effectively takes hold of what limited knowledge we have about ancient practices, and works it into a complete and useful system."—Patrick Dunn, author of The Orphic Hymns: A New Translation for the Occult Practitioner
