Uncover the Truth about Loki and His Devoted Wife Sigyn

This captivating book takes you deep into the infamous legacy of Loki and the quiet power of Sigyn, the goddess of loyalty and compassion. As a controversial figure in Heathenry, Loki is often approached with trepidation. But this book introduces you to his true self: a trickster, but also a loving husband and creative problem-solver.

Join Heathen author Lea Svendsen on a rich exploration of these two Norse deities, together and separate. Discover their adventures in parenthood, their complicated relationships with the other gods, and their entertaining exploits. Learn how to set up an altar to each of them, what offerings they like, and how to perform rituals. You'll also enjoy compelling thoughts on Loki and Sigyn from Pagan and Heathen leaders, such as Patricia Lafayllve and Erika Wren.

Includes a foreword by Mortellus, author of Do I Have to Wear Black?
