If you're involved in any form of Celtic Wicca or Witchcraft, or if you just want to know more about the ancient Celtic Priests, the Druids, you need The Lost Books of Merlyn by Douglas Monroe.
But you're not the only one who wanted this book. After his first book appeared, he received over 20,000 letters asking for more! That's the purpose of this book.
The Lost Books of Merlyn is a series of writings which have come down to us as attributed through the pen of Merlyn, or ― more precisely ― as having originally been in his keeping. Merlyn (upon whom the mythical Merlin was based) was a Druid, and the Druids were the priest-priest-initiators of their people. So this book is a reconstruction of the ancient philosophy, beliefs, and methods for personal transformation you can use today.
The book is composed of three parts, each one based on old Celtic legends, in the form of a story. Why was it written that way? "Because that is the way the Druids, the Celts, would have done it ― that is the way they taught."
The three sections are "The Battle of the Trees," "The Book of Pheryllt," and "The Gorchan of Maeldrew." When these stories were originally told, the people knew the meanings of their symbolism. Not so, today. Therefore, at the end of each section is a grimoire explaining the meanings and, at the same time, sharing rituals, oracles, and magical methods.
You'll learn about tree oracles, Celtic signs of power, and the Druidic pantheon of deities. You'll discover how to contact Faery folk, the power of words, and charms of protection. Revealed, too, is how to make and use dowsing rods to find ley lines, and the secrets of magical dance and music. Also, you'll find out the secrets of the "Charm of Making" and the proof that it was ancient before it was popularized in a movie.
This just barely scratches the surface of the book. You'll find that the wisdom here will touch you and help you on your path. Read it and learn.

Part adventure tale and part grimoire, The Lost Books of Merlyn remains true to the Druids' method of wrapping important knowledge in a story. Monroe's tale of the British Celts, their conflict with the Romans, and the last days of King Arthur, recounts the demise of the Druids but reveals the hope of their resurrection today. Coupled with an abundance of spells, charms, and sacred rites, this is more than just a well-written fantasy, more than just a well-stocked spell book. The Lost Books of Merlyn is both teacher and course. Whether you read it as a work of fiction or dig for a deeper meaning, you will hear a voice in these pages speaking to you as Merlyn speaks to the author: "Now, at last, it is your turn to understand what has already been lived, and what may come of it." --Brian PattersonFrom the Publisher:
In ancient Britain, the natives followed a religion based on the Goddess of the Moon. When the ancient Druids came with the Celts to the British Isles, they brought with them solar worship of a Sun God. Rather than force their beliefs onto the people, they combined the two, becoming the Priests of this all-encompassing faith. Today, what we base on these ancient traditions is called Celtic Wicca or Witchcraft.
There are many books written by scholars about the Druids. The Lost Books of Merlyn is also written by a scholar of the ancient teachings, but with one difference: Douglas Monroe presents the information so that you can use it today, for personal transformation and growth.
There are three sections or "books" here which are derived from an ancient manuscript called "The Book of Pheryllt." He uses the ancient texts to recreate the lore and legends of the ancient Celts. But this is not just a book of stories. Within each story is the wisdom of the Druids.
When the Druids roamed the Celtic lands, people knew the meanings within their stories. Today, much of that knowledge has been forgotten. So at the end of each section Douglas includes explicit instructions you can use to transform your life. He includes oracles and protection rituals, healing herbs, and musical secrets, how to tap into the energy of the earth, your own energy and even how to work with your dreams and astral project. He also reveals the ancient ways of evocation and the secrets of plants, herbs, and the sources of the Charms of Making (popularized in a movie).
Isn't it time you went back to the source? If you're involved or interested in any form of Celtic Wicca, I think you're going to love this book.
