      • Morgan Daimler

        My name is Morgan Daimler I have been a witch since 1991, an Irish reconstructionist since about 1994, and heathen since 2006 I like to write poetry and recently ventured into writing fiction which I enjoy I have had my poetry and prose published in different places including 7 anthologies, Circle magazine, Witches and Pagans magazine and the CR journal Air n Aithesc I am the author of the book By Land, Sea, and Sky, and the urban fantasy series Between the Worlds Through Spero Publishing I have the children s book a Child s Eye View of the Fairy Faith.Through Moon Books I have Where the Hawthorn Grows, Fairy Witchcraft, and Pagan Portals the Morrigan.


    1. First of all, I'm glad I came across this book. Due to time and limited access to certain books about Celtic mythology, this is the perfect book for me to learn about The Morrigan. As the author specifically states, this book isn't meant to be an in depth description of the Goddess since its written as a "resource for seekers" and is "meant to be a basic introduction" to The Morrigan. Not only does she references books to read, she encourages one to do research (time permitting and when you're n [...]

    2. As with others in the Pagan Portals series, there is a limit to the amount of information that can be fit into "Meeting the Great Queens." Yet, even with this limit, Daimler's writing doesn't feel constrained. The citation and bibliography provide excellent resources for further reading on the subject of the Morrígan, perfect for those left wanting more.This is a wonderful introduction to the subject of the Morrígan and ideal for those who like things rooted in strong scholarship. The chapters [...]

    3. I love this Book. I am Heathen myself. But for 2 years, I felt pulled, called, drawn, to the Morrigan. I couldn't put a finger on why. When I talked to my gods about it. They pretty much told me to follow that call. Yours was the first book that I picked up/ordered on my nook. I read through it and felt, comforted. It was great. The information and different perspectives were intriguing. Thank you for putting this together. I look forward to reading more of your books.

    4. Extremely well researched, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in learning more about the Morrigan. Morgan Daimler also shares some of her personal experiences, thoughts, and reflections about her relationship with this Irish Goddess. I look forward to reading Morgan's blog as well as the other books in her "Pagan Portals" series.

    5. I have recently developed an interest in the Morrignae and this is the first real text I have read on the subject. It is very accessible and although I am not a fan of the citation style (nor the apparent emphasis on modern texts over more original sources), the personal perspective from the author is fantastic and hugely helpful.

    6. The Morrigan It is a very well written and informative book. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in the study of the Celtic gods.

    7. I really appreciate that this book was written by an Irish reconstructionist. There’s a certain level of academic adherence in the reconstructionists that puts me at ease. I don’t feel like I have to take everything with a grain of salt and question their research methods and wonder if they’re adding artistic license to their interpretations.Celtic history and lore is tough. The simple fact is that we won’t ever know for sure what things were like, back then. Time and other cultures have [...]

    8. What a fantastically appropriate title for this informational book, The Morrigan: Meeting the Great Queens! If you know anything about The Morrigan, then you already know that the title of 'Morrigan' can cover a number of goddesses, all of which are great queens of their domains. And if you don't know that, and you have interest in this 'dark' goddess, then this book was written just for you.Morgan Daimler stuffed this short piece to the brim with academic information and personal experiences, m [...]

    9. A simple book describing this Goddess and her place in Irish mythology and contemporary pagan practice. I believe this book is part of a series. It's quite brief and as a result necessarily concise. It is very simply and clearly organized and well-written. Unfortunately, perhaps because of the limits of imposed by its length, it doesn't provide much larger context, and if you don't have some of that, a lot of the detail is difficult to integrate. I suspect if I had a broad familiarity with Irish [...]

    10. Not entirely what I expected. The Morrigan is a deity with a long and varied history and a lot of associated legends. She is multifaceted. The downside is that there are a lot of legends with deities named the Morrigan, including ones where it MIGHT be referring to her in a different aspect. Ms Daimler is thorough in her explanations, but that also means that this is more a compendium of the different Morrigan legends rather than a book about how to work with the Morrigan. The later chapters tou [...]

    11. Another favorite from Morgan Daimler. I am always so stunned with their Pagan Portals work. As a Pagan Portal title, the books are, by nature and design, short. I am stunned over and over by how much information Daimler can put into a small volume, without seeming rushed or like it's uncomfortably overstuffed. 79 pages, including endnotes and bibliography and we have information on the different aspects of The Morrigan, various names She's gone by, Mythology, Animals and a chapter on modern devo [...]

    12. A really quick and easy read! I read this to deepen my understanding of the Morrigan in preparation for a project I'm working on. This book is a great overview of goddess and her mythology, especially for beginners.I'm giving it four stars because while it was lightning fast to get through, much of the information itself was already known to me from prior reading. Since I'm not a pagan practitioner, I didn't find much value in the more personal sections of the book. Still, this is a super access [...]

    13. Great readI highly recommended this book for anybody interested in The Morrigan for either specific pagan purposes or just a general interest in Celtic mythology. This book is well put together & does a good job of showcasing her origin & history while still being respectful of the negative light that some view her in.

    14. This book was incredibly important to my pathwork with the Morrigan. Daimler is a well-versed, respected Pagan scholar. She is fastidious in her organization and citation. Her featured invocations and other creative prose are straightforward and effective in practice but still poetically appealing. All in all, this is a great work for someone considering pursuing a relationship with the Morrigan.

    15. I really enjoyed reading this introduction to the Morrigan. Understanding this rather complex goddess and her many guises does help one to decide whether to delve deeper into her world, or not. If anything else, you develop a healthy respect for her and her sisters.

    16. A nice primer if you're starting out on your journey with the Morrigan. Kind of like Cliff's Notes; condensed and informative. Gives you some good, basic information to be a springboard into further study.

    17. Daimler has a gift for offering lore in a palatable and pleasant way. They offer their own experiences, but a reader never feels "dictated to." I love the illuminations on the etymology of The Morrigan's many guises. I recommend this for anyone who is interested in The Morrigan or Celtic mythos.

    18. Great introduction This is a great introduction to the Morrigan and the goddesses associated with her. If you hear her call, or if you're simply curious about her, start here.

    19. Not quite what I was expecting, but it ended up being a great research book and I learned quite a bit about neopaganism.

    20. Morgan Daimler’s book about the Morrigan, that multifarious and fascinating Irish goddess, may be small but it has done great things for me. It’s one of the Pagan Portals series, short-but-deep introductions to a variety of Pagan subjects including deities. It’s full of all sorts of fascinating information about the Morrigan from historical sources, the kind of stuff that would normally put me off as I scrambled through footnotes and unpronounceable terminology, desperately trying to ‘do [...]

    21. Accessible but IntelligentWhen looking for texts on ancient deities--especially Celtic ones--I tend to find either incredibly dry texts written by academics, or fluffy, touchy-feely books without a great deal of scholarly info. This text is accessible and interesting, but also includes a great deal of historical information, cites sources for further reading and follow up . . . And then also offers insight into how a modern-day devotee of the Morrigan might translate ancient understanding of the [...]

    22. This book examines the Morrigan with greater attention to scholarship than the sources floating around online, but with concision and clarity that make it an accessible starting point for further research. I appreciate that the author includes some of her own experiences, as well, and was surprised at how similar some of them are to the Morrigan's influence on my life. I will undoubtedly return to this book as I continue my research and practice.

    23. Good integration of information about the Morrigan from ancient Irish myth to modern day worship. Impressive bibliography and scholarly research despite the books short 79 pages. Upon finishing it I wanted more, which is always a good sign.

    24. A great first look at The Morrigan, her history, and her place in paganism and Irish mythology. Definitely has me itching to learn more.

    25. Brief and concise overview both historically and within a neopagan/reconstructionist context. Would recommend for any interested in this perplexing and powerful Celtic Goddess
