A must-listen

Most people associate mythology with the Greeks and Romans and know very little about Norse mythology. Learn about the Norse gods and goddesses and their religious beliefs and abstruse magic.

Great content

The book delves into the different types of Asatru magic, the tools needed for it, and how to practice it on your old man. You learn about Norse paganism in today's world and how you can incorporate Norse magic into everyday life. It also talks about how it falls in this modern age.

Great work.

The book is very informative when it comes to describing what Paganism is. I enjoyed Asatru the book for that. Other books are still helpful and informative. The author and narrator did a great job.

This book is a fantastic

This book is a fantastic addition to my research on religion, and how individuals become convinced, if not outright argumentative, about miracles and mysterious gods without proof of their existence.

A great listen.

Very fascinating about Norse magic and how it is heavily influenced by the idea of fate. Also explains that the word rune means mystery, whisper, or secret. There is a lot of very interesting history within this book.

Good book

It’s a good book but does not cover much of spá and its history of it, it just covers the terminology. But the information on the runes is absolutely fantastic
