Known by many names and with a wide array of characteristics Odin is a God who many people believe is just as active in the world today as he was a thousand years ago and more. A god of poetry he inspires us to create. A god of magic he teaches us to find our own power. A god of wisdom he challenges us to learn all we can. In this book you will find some of Odin's stories and history as well as anecdotes of what it can be like to honor him in the modern world.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

I absolutely loved this book. As someone who has been interested in Norse mythology since I was a child, this new take on an old god was a great read. Perfect for those new and old to Odin, this book also offers plenty of recommendations for further reading. ~ Lily, The Faerie Review

As a beginner in Norse Mythology, I must say this was a very informative and enlightening read for me. It's been a while since I've been interested in getting to know the norse pantheon a bit more, and although this book is centred around Odin, there's also an introduction to the whole context of his being, from the beginning of everything, to the most known Norse Gods. ~ Melanie Laing , NetGalley

As a beginner in Norse Mythology, I must say this was a very informative and enlightening read for me. It's been a while since I've been interested in getting to know the norse pantheon a bit more, and although this book is centred around Odin, there's also an introduction to the whole context of his being, from the beginning of everything, to the most known Norse Gods. It really goes into depth into who Odin is, where the references of his personality come from, his various names, etc. so I would completely recommend this book to people interested in getting to know this god and also to those who want to go deeper in their knowledge. ~ Mali Elliot, NetGalley

An incredible insight into modern Pagan worship and the relationships we form with our deities. ~ Jessica Holloway, Fictionally Dysfunctional

Another fantastic piece of inspired work from the very talented Morgan Daimler. She shares her extensive knowledge of the fascinating god Odin covering all aspects not just the myths and legends with the added bonus of her own personal insights too. A must have for anyone's bookshelf. ~ Rachel Patterson, author of several books on the Craft including The Cailleach and Animal Magic

For those seeking an introduction to the One-Eyed Wanderer, there are few authors better suited to do so than Morgan Daimler. Her understanding of Odin, demonstrated here, is broad, deep, and of long standing, and she covers the vast array of topics connected to Himself with a touch both deft and deeply perceptive. ~ Jennifer Lawrence, author of Fire on the Mountain and Listening to Their Voices

Morgan Daimler has once again turned out a well-researched, highly readable work that will be a valuable addition to any Pagan bookshelf. Her insights into Odin's mythos and his place in both Norse and non-Norse spirituality over the centuries are fascinating. And her personal experiences with this multi-faceted god offer the reader a bridge to begin to understand him and include him in their own spiritual practice ~ Laura Perry, author of Ariadne's Thread: Awakening the Wonders of the Ancient Minoans in Our Modern Lives

When Morgan first announced that she was going to attempt to write a Pagan Portals book about Odin, I couldn’t help but smirk to myself a little. Oh sure, people want to know about him, but to squash all of the things into a Pagan Portals book? Madness! Or wodnes, whichever term you’d prefer. So when I first picked up this book, it was with an attitude of admiration that someone would try and take on the matter of Old One Eye in a way that not only gives a good and full introduction to old Grimnir himself, but that also has the insight of personal experience. Morgan Daimler is one of those rare creatures who tries to combine reconstructionist methodology with the experiential, and this is something that shines through the book. The source information she provides in here is a very good starting point for anyone who wants to learn about the Allfather in an easy-to-digest way. However, as always, it’s Morgan’s critical discussion of the material and how it relates to modern practice that really sparkles in this book. My favorite sections were her discussions on modern rune usage vs what we know of historical runes, and the matter of ‘fulltrui’ and henotheism (not once the henotheism, guys!). All in all, this is an excellent summary of a topic which is expansive to say the least. Quite frankly, I’m surprised Morgan isn’t rocking in a corner somewhere after tackling that. So yes, buy these bitter fruits of Morgan’s pain. You won’t regret it! ~ Seo Helrune
