Publisher's Summary

An illuminating exploration of Ireland's ancient dark goddess - the beloved "phantom queen" of the Celtic world - with practices for modern-day devotees.  

The Morrigan is one of Pagan Ireland's most famous - and notorious - goddesses. Her name translated as "phantom queen" or "great queen," the Morrigan is famous for being a goddess of war, witchcraft and death, protection and retribution. This book also explores her patronage of motherhood, healing, shapeshifting, and the land. 

Classified among the Sidhe (fairies), the Morrigan dates back at least to Ireland's Iron Age, but she is as modern as she is ancient-enjoying a growing contemporary and global following. 

Author Courtney Weber provides a guide for the modern devotee of this complex, mysterious goddess that encompasses practical veneration with modern devotionals, entwined with traditional lore and Irish-Celtic history.

BAD CHOICE FOR READER VOICE

like, misophonia levels of bad. content is great, just wish they’d have hired an irish reader and/or someone whose voice doesn’t sound like a bread machine infomercial from the 90s.

great author

Courtney Weber is a great author. The narrator however leaves a bit to be desired.

great book to learn about the Morrigan

This book taught me a lot about ancient Celtic culture in regards to the Morrigan, a terrifying and misunderstood goddess from Ancient Ireland. the author recounts myths about the goddess and contextualizes them for modern sensibilities. she does a great job making the practice of worshipping and honoring the Morrigan accessible for modern devotees

Excellent information

I originally chose this book on The Morrigan because Lora O'Brian had recommended it. Lora O'Brian is someone I trust in recommending authors and teachers of Irish Pagan history. That being said, I am very glad I was able to listen to this book on Audible. Courtney Weber gives the listener/ reader a lot of information on The Morrigan and also includes different perspectives allowing the listener/reader to research and make up their own mind on how they interpret the history. I plan on reading more from this author.

This could be a great book with wonderful

information. I am sure it is. I just couldn't get past the narrator. So boring.

Great Book

This book sure does explain a lot of things. It would appear to be a dang good dive into the Morrigan. Worth every minute. The narrator however speaks so calmly its easy to just relax and sometimes lose track.

Pronunciation of Irish language very distracting

Very informative book containing some opinions I'd never considered before. But as an Irish individual, I found the pronunciation and accent extremely distracting. Its a problem as people hearing this will think that this is how you are suppose to pronounce these words and this will get carried forward. Surely there was a person more familiar with the Gaelic language that could have done this..

It's a keeper.

Enjoyed this book very much. Excellent narration and a very cordial introduction to reputedly the most formidable goddess of them all.
Highly recommended.

The first book I read that actually speaks real

The rituals etc are complete codswallop but the other information makes up for it more than enough

brilliant book, super bad reader ruined it.

This book is brilliant, no wishy washy bullshit. The reader ruined it. I put up with it for 1/2 of book but couldn't take it anymore. I seen on the Irish pagan group that Courtney didn't pick her reader n only knew her book was being made in2 audio when they needed advice of pronouncing words. NOT GOOD AUDIBLE!!!

Historical perspectives and personal experience

I like the approach to content of this book - Offering various perspectives on the Morrigan based on myths and legends, providing interpretations of these, followed by personal experiences and suggestions for rituals.

The reader/voice was good but it would feel more authentic to have an Irish accent for the reader.

Life changing read!

Life changing stuff. I’m now going to have to buy the hard copy so that I can refer back to different sections over and over and over. A wonderful listen, and I loved the tone - there was no condescension towards the audience, or assumption that the audience knows nothing. Loved this experience!

Horrible audio

I didn't even get a chance to get into the book. I plan on purchasing the hard copy because I've wanted to read this for ages but I only got 1 minute and a half into the audio book because the audio is clunky and irritating to listen to.
