An atmospheric collection of 30 folk tales exploring stories of cosmology, monsters, conflicts and courtship from the Seven Kingdoms to Middle Earth. This is an entertaining portal into a world overflowing with mythology, magic and all manner of beguiling creatures, which has inspired everything from the Lord of the Rings to Game of Thrones. The stories are presented in three sections. Scop the storyteller takes the reader from the creation of the world to its destruction; Wreccan provides pagan stories of self-discovery through exile, like those of Sigemund’s rebellion and the trials of Beowulf; Bretwalda reveals the challenges faced by the overlord of the Seven Kingdoms of Britain.
