King Over the Water - Sa. .has been added to your Cart. Nick Farrell's newest book is another essential addition to the Golden Dawn corpus

King Over the Water - Sa. Nick Farrell's newest book is another essential addition to the Golden Dawn corpus. Aside from the valuable historical information within, the greatest value in my opinion lies in the rare documents published within, particularly the Book of the Tomb, which was unpublished until recently. My only criticism of this book is the author's opinion of Mathers; Farrell comes off as very critical of Mathers throughout, and this is not entirely justified, as the man was the main architect behind the Golden Dawn, and a genius despite his imperfections.

by Nick Farrell - July 11, 20125.

Rather than painting Mathers as an eccentric genius, Farrell sees him as an autocratic fantasist.

Their supporters traditionally toasted the pretenders as "The King over the Water". The date given for the commencement of his claim is the date upon which James fled London.

With regard to the Scottish throne, however, James was not deposed until 4 April 1689, when the Scottish Convention of Estates declared.

I was hoping for a more detailed biography of the Golden Dawn's leading light, something on a par with Mary K. Greer's excellent Women of the Golden Dawn. The biographical material is only about half the book; the remainder is Golden Dawn rituals as redacted by Mathers. However, if you are interested in the ritual material as well as a precis of Mathers' life during his involvement with the order, this book will certainly repay your purchase and your study.

This book is a must read for anyone interested in the history of the order, its sources and offshoots .
It answers many questions which have puzzled GD folks for decades.
It also raises a few new ones. Ignore the meepers. They're just
cronies of a man who owns a trademark which does not in fact appear on the original
documents and materials.

Looking at the reviews for this book, and I use the term, "book," loosely, I noticed there were 15 people who, well off their medication, gave this book five stars, and another 15 people who, because there is no less rating to give, gave this book, one star. Time to break the tie.

I regret, and will most likely go to my grave regretting, that Nick Farrell ever got any money from the sale of this book from me. If I could have the money I spent on this book transferred into something meaningful, like a retirement fund for former mafia hit men, it would go to a far more reputable establishment.

This book is a hatchet job, a biased work of Ad Hominem garbage, that offers no new information, especially not scholarly information, on the life of S.L. MacGregor Mathers or the Golden Dawn. Farrell, a disciple of the badly tarnished and tarnishing Golden Dawn line (Regardie rolling in his grave) of Chic Cicero (who up until recent years I had much respect for) and his ilk, runs a massive misinformation job in this work, re-labeling the father of modern Ceremonial Magick as a quitter, as someone not dedicated to Magick, to someone lost in a "defeat" that is overblown, and tries to paint Mathers into some sickly coward, dismantling and rejecting the very thing that was his life work.

It's a very disreputable human being who will dedicate his or her life to destroying someone else's character for some premeditated inner-cabal purpose. If you think I'm being too harsh on Farrell, go and watch his YouTube videos, or read his Blog, it's a train-wreck of pseudo-occultism. I teach College Composition and Rhetoric, and my first semester students do a MUCH better job of argumentation and research, of writing authoritative papers, than this so-called "expert" on the Golden Dawn.

While I think this is an important read for people interested in the Golden Dawn and Ceremonial Magick in general, it is only so they can be aware of the horrific bias and sub-plots that Farrell and his cronies are willing to sink to, in order to undermine the Golden Dawn legacy and heritage.

If you are looking for sincere works on the Golden Dawn or MacGregor Mathers, this is not the one for you.

That being said, this flaw is not significant enough to reduce the value of this otherwise brilliant work.

This review is a tribute to being able to tell a story, sharing information that should be available to everybody, and the "God Given" right to express the truth, albeit from a slightly slanted perspective.
When I tell you that there are forces at work trying to suppress this work, as well as the author's legitimacy to have the gall to utter even these words, I am understating matters. It is ALL about high stakes here, folks. Therefore everyone out of the loop owe it to themselves to read this book, if for no other reason than to gain an insight into what all the fuss is about.
No matter what anyone will try to tell you, there is some real meat here. The fact that certain unnamed individuals of the community will say anything - fundamentally, mind you - to remove the authenticity of this work, is striking. No word of theirs will reveal, perhaps, that their motives are anything but altruistic in condemning what here is revealed as to the Man of the Hour, or more importantly the documents revealed for public scrutiny, in this and its twin book "Mathers Last Secret".
It is actually quite entertaining observing grown men - proclaiming high grades supposedly supporting Wisdom beyond that of common man - bicker like children about what to them ultimately is all about losing face as to why your paycheck is no longer coming their way.
Solo practicioner: use their bickering for your own gains, and read this book. The Golden Dawn egregore is alive and well, and it survives in the Heart of the Magician, not in the bickering of money-hungry institutions. Take your fill thereof, and be Satiated!

If you truly want to understand and learn all about the original golden dawn then you owe it to yourself to read this brilliant masterpiece.

Thought provoking, factual and reveals the teuth about this magical order, its foundations, the people who were the real forces behind the order, as well as myth busting.

There has never been a book as lucid on the golden dawn as the king over water and most likely there will never be.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Im sure you will find new insights on the golden dawn too.
