I have been dedicated to Loki for many years now, so when I saw Loki and Sigyn by Lea Svendsen advertised in my Llewellyn catalog I knew I had to have a copy. When my box arrived, I jumped with excitement as I pulled the book out, and immediately ran off to read it like a giddy child. The book was far more amazing than I could have ever imagined!
Lea Svendsen brilliantly brought you into the world of Loki and his wife Sigyn through retellings of their myths. The myths of Loki are already highly entertaining, but Lea’s sarcasm and as she put it “snark” made me cackle with laughter. Not only did she show us the childlike fun of working with Loki, but she also showed the grace and loyalty of working with Sigyn.
Working with Sigyn
I will admit, before the book I had not worked with Sigyn. I was aware of her but as so many Lokeans do we often overlook Sigyn because she is much quieter than Loki. After learning about her and meditating to communicate with her, she has always been there and waiting for so many of us to reach out to her. Sigyn is now becoming an integral part of practice and devotion to Loki.
Lea’s book opened my eyes to new possibilities with Loki and Sigyn, which I was not fully aware of before despite working with Loki and all his thrilling chaos. Lea’s book is a valuable resource for any pagan looking to learn more about Loki and Sigyn and to work with them. This book is one of my favorite books of all time and which I am happy to read again and again.
