    1. I'm actually kind of disappointed in this one. I wouldn't say it's BAD, as such, but it's very slight. First half is a relatively interesting quick history of magical practice in Iceland over the last thousand years. Couple of short bios of major figures and the social/political/religious environments they came up in, and a quick sketch of how the practice of magic changed and the main differences between Icelandic practice and mainland practice (filtered through Dr. Flowers somewhat rigid viewp [...]


    2. I cannot believe I wasted my time reading this garbage. It is unbelievable that Stephen E. Flowers is the same person as Edred Thorson. The tone is different, the writing is the different, everything is different. Maybe it's true what people say he's getting crazier as he ages. I was looking more into galduring and seidr not younger futhark with Christianity and demons. The beginning of the book was interesting. Flowers talks about the religious history of Iceland. That was informative. Then he [...]


    3. This review originally appeared on The Magical Buffet website on 4/24/2016.Not too long ago I finished reading “Icelandic Magic: Practical Secrets of the Northern Grimoires” by Stephen E. Flowers, Ph.D. and it was a truly fascinating work, a wonderful blend of scholarly and practical. (For those of you who consider working magic practical.) “Icelandic Magic” is divided into two books. The first part is history and basics of Icelandic magic and the second part is referred to as “Gray-Sk [...]


    4. The book, Icelandic Magic by Stephen E. Flowers, Ph.D. is a great reference and read for those interested in magic and want to understand more about this type. It's packed with magical symbols and spells as well as history to the Iceland Magic. I really love the cover, the illustrations used to do magic with remind me almost of snow flakes. However, everything is very well organized and fully detailed. It's got old information from the past, which is really cool about this book. It's not made up [...]


    5. Flowers has produced an update to his rare and seminal work 'the Galdrabok' which incorporates a more structured approach to understanding the work of a variety of Icelandic grimoire's. If you collect 'black' books or have interests in medieval magic or runic magic- then there is much of value to be found in this work.


    6. Stunning sigils. Im hoping all of it it ends up very inspiring. Might be motivated to finish my viking book or maybe poetic or prose edda after reading thiseven though they are a bit boringhehh :P
