" Beyond Reson" by Heather Freysdottir

Post by Darkamber on Fri Oct 23, 2015 8:04 am

Has anyone read "
Beyond Reason"
by Heather Freysdottir?
From the blurb on the back of the book it seems to be about Pagan mysticism and Loki.
I haven't read it yet, but I got a copy. I'm afraid that there will be too much about Heather's special, close relationship with Loki in it, and that will hurt to read about since I haven't had that after May 2012.
So, I'm wondering if anyone else have read it.

Yes, I have it and enjoyed it. But I know you are like me and get depressed about those things, so I can't guarantee it's an easy read.
But I am obsessive and curious and collect everything I can, even if it makes me jealous, it makes me think, y'know?

You may enjoy the "
Worshipping Loki"
book by Silence Maestas better. I got one of the handbound copies but I think she was going to have regular books printed. (Hopefully she'll take care of the typos ... there were a lot of formatting mistakes and stuff...) But it was not so much her own experiences.

I read it. In fact, I reviewed for Eternal Haunted Summer, but the review won't be out until the Winter issue.

Short version:

It DOES talk about her special relationship with Loki. Rather a lot. That's kind of the point of the book, to show what it's like to be a godspouse. Mostly it seems aimed at people who:

1. wonder if their own experiences are "
normal"
and want to compare with another
2. are curious about either Loki or godspousery or both
3. are looking for a few more insights about Loki besides what they already have

This forum fulfills all 3 of those functions, but if you read this book probably #3 would be the only one relevant to you, since you already know a lot.

This is a good book, but if you think the entire topic would make you uncomfortable, then I can't recommend that you read it right now. Maybe think about reading it next year.

*nod nod* Agreed with your assessment.
I'm trying to think of what I took away from it ... pretty much an echo of things read elsewhere.
