Oct 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Articles, Books, Books for Pagans

Pagan Portals – Gwyn ap Nudd is a new introductory title from Danu Forest, whose popular work Druid Shaman is also published by Moon Books.

Gwyn, the bright god of the Brythonic underworld Annwfn and Faery king of the wild Welsh spirits, the twlwyth teg, is an ancient and mysterious figure. His tales are scattered through oral folklore and across medieval Welsh literature, a depository of our ancient god-tales. Said to dwell within the legendary glass castle in Glastonbury Tor, as well as the black mountains of Wales, he is both a figure of romance and fear. A dark lover through the winter months, leader of the wild hunt, and guardian of the dead. He is the ancient companion of bards and visionaries through the initiatory journey to the depths of the Celtic Underworld, in search of the Goddess of the land herself.

Reviewer Rayna Noire says: “Danu Forest does an excellent job researching both literature and Celtic history to piece together a fascinating portrayal of Gwyn Ap Nudd, his queen, and even his court. She revives practices of honoring Gwyn and the forest.” You can read the whole review here –
