Quotes from Freya Aswynn's Review of my book..

Freya Aswynn (world famous author on runes) is about half way through my book, and is writing the review as she goes. She shared some material with me this morning, and I wanted to share it with you. I've pulled out snippets, as the review is lengthy. I feel like a kid at Yule!


"This book is the single most comprehensive guide to manifold branches of the Northern Tradition." - Freya Aswynn

Chapter 1:

"The first thing which strikes me about this book, is the writing style, easy and unpretentious, simple and straight. No waffle anywhere. The first chapter is written with a enthusiasm for the subject radiating off every page. I especially noticed that it would be very very suitable for kids. Especially young boys who can identify with ‘Viking’ and Anglo/Saxon Warrior culture. It should be introduced at schools. " - Freya Aswynn

On my Herb Lore Chapter:

"The Next section of the book is occupied with healing herb lore derived from original source material. Wonderfully balanced and backed up by comparisons with other healing traditions. Recipes of herbs and remedies for a variety of conditions are detailed described from traditional lore but also it's chemical compositions. A sound reference for home made remedies for small ailments. A viking first aid kit:-)" - Freya Aswynn

Anyway, needless to say I'm pretty thrilled, Freya has been an inspiration to me for many years, and to get such praise from her is a dream come true.

This will be great for the back cover of my next edition :)
