    A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review

    I'm surprised at the gamut of emotions this book took me on, for a nonfiction piece. I was excited to get the book, then I couldn't beleive he was serious, thought he was awesome and a few times a complete loon. I will try to give a honest review, but truly you have to decide for yourself. I'm not even fully sure of my opinion yet, so I'll just have to pick something.

    It talks about being a vampyre in a more spiritual sense. It's not about immortality or any of the other vampire myths. It's about energizing yourself and having willing hosts. Blood is not often used, and Father Sebastiaan says to draw real blood there has to be such a commitment from the host that it's just not practical. The person would have to be quarantined for about 10 years before you could even draw from them, including lots of testing to make sure their blood is safe. So they generally stick with feasting on the life force of willing hosts. Can't stress that part enough, WILLING hosts. I love that he put so much detail and precautions in this book.

    He does talk about imortality, but it's more about being able to leave this mortal coil and ascend to a fully spiritual level. Take this quote:

    "Vampyres of the Strigoi Vii Tradition see Themselves as part of a movement which promotes spiritual and philosophical evolution, which is deeply rooted in the soul, not just a specific singular religion or paradigm. Once Awakened there is no turning back; the Current is alive within the individual."

    There is so much deep magick in this book, that I'm not even sure I believe in it. But that's a big part of what made this book so much fun. That and Father Sebastiaan's passion for the subject and the intelligent way he presents it.

    Will I be practicing vampyre magick? Probably not, but the book was fascinating to read. So I should probably go with that for my stars.

    Amazing!

    First of all, I've been looking for this book for three years - the Liber Moroii and sequel to the Sanguinomicon.
    I don't know why anyone other than a Strigoi Vii or avid occult student would pick this up, let alone buy it.
    It gave me a lot of info I've been missing from just reading the Sanguinomicon. I highly suggest reading the Sang right before this if you don't remember it to get a better understanding...otherwise you'd be missing a lot.
    So this review isn't about how good or bad the book was - If you're looking to expand your occult horizon/library or are just a loyal Strigoi Vii, then this book is a must.
    Hail Elorath!
