Pagan Portals - Loki
A bold and necessary look at the Trickster God of the Norse.
Loki Laufeyjarson is the famous trickster of Norse Mythology, who brings its pages to life with conflict, humor, and excitement. Far from being just a villain or a prankster, Loki is a god who brings necessary change into the world, transcends boundaries, and shines light on hidden truth. In this book, you will be introduced to Loki and the many masks he wears: whether he appears as the bringer of enlightenment, the traveling companion of the gods, or the ender of worlds. This is also an accessible guide to building a devotional practice with the trickster, where you will learn new ways to honor this often misunderstood deity. Open the door to Loki's mysteries, and prepare to laugh, be challenged, and potentially change your life.

5 Star rating: I have nothing but good to say about this book. Dagulf is a wonderful, well studied author. ~ Ashton Pfeiffer, Amazon
5 Star rating: I really enjoyed this book. There’s much spiritual and historical information out there about Loki but it can be very spread out and take time to find everything and every scholarly opinion. Especially with the heathen scene, others don’t do the same research or are too dismissive. This book wonderfully lays it all out giving you the information you need, where to read more about it and some nice observations by the author too. Not only does this book give out the lore but what it and you can do spiritually. Every chapter has guidelines in how you can start your altar and rituals to Loki. This is great for lokeans looking to start out and create the foundations of their devotion. I often found it difficult online to find this information and it’s all neatly put here to give you ideas and steps. The author has a good heart for Loki and lokeans and it shines through in this book. ~ Amazon customer, Amazon
5 Star rating: I loved reading this beautiful devotional book for Loki. It makes my heart warm to see him written about with such love & honesty. It will be a book that is always nearby, that will be reread & used to bring me even closer to Loki. ~ Alice, Goodreads
In Pagan Portals Loki - Trickster and Transformer, Dagulf Loptson provides a clear, well-supported and appealing introduction to Loki’s character, history, and presence in the world. In addition to scholarship that will bolster your case if you find yourself defending him, Loptson provides ideas and directions for creating rituals and ritual gear. Loptson’s work on Loki played a major part in my decision to reconsider my view on this often misunderstood god. The Trickster plays an important role in creating change, and we need his help today. ~ Diana Paxson, author of Essential Ásatrú: Walking the Path of Northern Paganism
