Wicca is a pagen art because if that's what the Indy book says about it than that is the truth. Whatever Indy say's is Gospel.

"The Sky Pirates" felt like Indy pretending to be James Bond while trudging his way through a tech manual. While the author could have written "The plane landed.", instead writes "The plane's gears shifted as a steel strut planted its base into a 2.5 inch silver planet bolt. The tire, inflated to it's peak efficiency, made contact with the ground which was a mix of ground sandstone and shale. The plane had landed."

I finally finished reading White Witch last night. It was ok, better if the main character's name wasn't Indiana Jones.

I don't know anything about Wicca, but I really liked the book. I got me hooked on the others. Reading posts on the boards, I find myself to be the minority on this. But the book also tied in the story of Merlin, which I thought was cool.

What's the rating on this book? PG? PG-13?

How graphic or scary does it get?

Finally finished after giving up 15 years ago. There's enough of an Indy tale in the 300+ pages. 150 would have sufficed. They ride the Zeppelin to the US, then fly to Florida to look for gold lost by the Confederates. The so-called witch from the forest has the Caliburn (not Excalibur), a charged scepter which creates a concealing mist. She also commands animals like Aquaman.
