For today’s post, I have decided to do a countdown of my favorite books on the Morrigan.
Number 5: The Morrigan: Meeting the Great Queens by Morgan Daimler
~Morgan Daimler is a modern expert in all things Faery. By extension, this makes her an ideal person to write about the Great Queen and Faery woman the Morrigan. She is also a Pagan who worships the Morrigan, giving her personal insight into the Phantom Queen.
Number 4: The Morrigan: Celtic Goddess of Magick and Might by Courtney Weber
~Weber’s book does an awesome job of balancing the tales of the Morrigan with her own personal journey. She does not shy away from discussing the darkness in her own life that the Morrigan helped her deal with.
Number 3: Celtic Lore & Spellcraft of the Dark Goddess: Invoking the Morrigan by Stephanie Woodfield
~Woodfield is a longtime Priestess of the Morrigan. In her book, we get to learn about all of the many faces of the Morrigan in a well-laid-out manner. I really adore her balance of the original myths and her own UPG.
Number 2: The Irish Queen Medb by Lora O’Brien
~I know that this one is technically about Maeve, but as the number three book on this list has suggested, Maeve could likely be another reflex of the Morrigan! This is the reason I have decided I should include this book here. I adore O’Brien’s writing style and that she digs deeply into each facet of Maeve’s tale!
Number 1: By Blood, Bone, and Blade: A Tribute to the Morrigan by Bibliotheca Alexandrina
~This book is an incredible devotional anthology of works about the Phantom Queen. It features several great writers who are followers of Her today. I thoroughly enjoy the collection of works and various ways to look at the Morrigan today!
Special Mentions: These two books are ones that I have yet to get the chance to read, but I do want to read them shortly!
Priestess of the Morrigan by Stephanie Woodfield
~ This one is a sequel to the book I listed above. It is about going deeper into devotion and becoming a priestess.
The Book of the Great Queen by Morpheus Ravenna
~ I am incredibly excited about this one because it was something that the author had worked on for 20 years! She has been a devotee for decades and it is said to be a great accomplishment.
~I hope that you have enjoyed this countdown. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
