On shadowed wings and in raven´s call, meet the ancient Irish goddess of war, battle, prophecy, death, sovereignty, and magic. This book is an introduction to the Morrigan and several related goddesses who share the title, including Badb and Macha. It combines solid academic information with personal experience in a way that is intended to dispel the confusion that often surrounds who this goddess was and is. The Morrigan is as active in the world today as she ever was in the past but answering her call means answering the challenge of finding her history and myth in a sea of misinformation, supposition, and hard-to-find ancient texts. Here in one place, all of her basic information has been collected along with personal experiences and advice from a long-time priestess dedicated to a goddess who bears the title Morrigan.

"Morgan presents us with solid, well-researched information on the Irish Morrigans from some of the best academic sources out there, and does it in a way that is engaging and approachable."
Segomâros Widugeni, previously known as Aedh Rua, author of Celtic Flame: An Insider´s Guide to Irish Pagan Tradition

"Pagan Portals: The Morrigan is a well-researched and heartfelt guide to the Morrigan from a fellow devotee and priestess. Morgan Daimler´s impeccabe scholarship and devotion to the Morrigan offers readers both sound historical resources as well as the author´s personal experiences with this complex goddess. A Perfect guide for those taking the first steps towards understanding the Morrigan."
Stephanie Woodfield, author of Celtic Lore and Spellcraft of the Dark Goddess
