Odhroerir: Nine Devotional Tales of Odin's Journeys

eBook (PDF), 159 Pages
(6 Ratings)
Price: $5.00
Odin—shamanic Scandinavian God of magic, poetry, and death—is the central figure in this collection of nine short stories written as a devotional offering to Him. Some of the tales in this book feature bold re-interpretations of familiar stories from Heathen lore such as the winning of the Mead of Poetry, the death of Balder, and Odin’s sacrifice of self to Self on the World Tree, Yggdrasil, to obtain the runes. Others take the reader on absorbing new adventures. Edgy and provocative, this volume offers startling and insightful glimpses into Odin’s nature, and is designed to help the reader draw closer to this multi-faceted God of light, shadows, and paradox.

    Odhroerir is an excellent and touching collection of short stories based on Norse Mythology and the author's own finely-tuned, and inspired imagination, informed by her intense study and love for the Norse God Odin. I highly, highly recommend it for those who have a love of stories with a mythological touch.

    "Breath-taking talent and heart-moving love...." ...shine through in this volumn of devotional tales dedicated to the heathen god Odin. The author takes you to the very beginning of Odin's life (little baby Odin! awwww), as seen through the eyes of his mother, Bestla, to his wooing of Gunnlod and winning back the Mead, to his sacrificing his eye into the Well of Mimir, to his gaining the runes on Yggdrasil. The tales are woven through with the pain of experience, the warmth of love, and the excitement of ecstasy. It is exciting to see stories of the gods being told in fresh voices, to see myths handed down from our ancestors being retold by those who love and worship them now. This book is a treasure, and anyone who loves the Old Man should add this to their library. I can't wait to see what else Laure has to offer us!
