Review by Erin
Full disclosure time, Morgan is a friend of mine, and I got a copy of her book ahead of publication so I could do this review. Plus I tend to collect books on Irish Gods and Goddesses. And this book does not disappoint.
Lugh is one of my patron deities. He and I have had many interactions in the past, and when I work in my druidic methods, He is one of the deities I call upon. I have written articles on Him and also studied a lot of mythology on Him. I’ve also read a lot of books about Lugh.
This book I would say is about as close as a definitive work gets, without getting into the minutiae that many authors can get lost in. Morgan really does a fantastic job of sharing the mythology of Lugh, the context of the mythology, the various accounts of Him without getting into the stories other than to tell you what is relevant, and then about how to look at the God and how to incorporate Him into your worship. And I have to say that this book really really organizes the ton of information out there on Lugh into a book that even a novice can understand and start using to connect with Lugh and work with Him.
