On the surface it's the story of a young woman, Brida, who pursues the study of magic on a wicca-like path, the Tradition of the Moon, but also has another teacher, a Magus, who teaches the Tradition of the Sun. She also is seeking love, and her soul mates, and there is a lot of discussion of what love really is, and how it changes once one is on a path such as this. Coelho really is a magnificent writer. The book builds into a crescendo of insights on the part of each of the characters, just as the final ritual in the book builds.Read more ›
Interestingly, I gave this book as a present to somebody else and we did read it simultaneously. My friend also found this story very poor developed. It honestly looks like if he had been forced to write something in the last minute.
I won't tell you not to read it... but from the bottom of my heart, I hope you get if for free because actually I think we should be paid to read something like this... (It's painful and I regret the valuable hours of my life I spent reading it...).

Good read. As always, Paulo Coelho is a master storyteller, but the ending was a bit of a letdown.Published 6 months ago by kerry
