Runic Trilogy

(8 customer reviews)

Curious about runes? Want to learn more about rituals and pagan ways?



This story is structured on the runic alphabet, an ancient Northern European symbol system. Each chapter illustrates a letter through the actions of a priest, priestess and seeker. A modern Pagan fantasy, the tale brings the runes to life as the characters’ lives intertwine, assisted by Goddesses and Elves. Entertaining and educational.

    It was a light, entertaining and informative read. I enjoyed learning a little about the meaning of Runes, learning about some of the seasonal celebrations of the Wicca religion and of course, following the story. I really loved the illustrations. I think it is geared towards readers who are young at heart and those who are learning the Runes. I would read another book written by Wren

    Here Wren has achieved something that few Wiccan or pagan writers achieve. Most are content to write either scholarly treatises or how-to cookbooks. Wren has managed to impart her knowledge and wisdom in a ripping good read thus making it available to a wider audience. Very enjoyable read.

    Wren is a highly revered local and I was lucky enough to meet and talk to her at Austin Pagan Pride. This book is great in that it doesnt only cover the upright and reversed meanings but also the meanings for when they land in their side. She presents each rune in a short story that applies each meaning so that, at least to me, it’s more easy to apply.

    I fell in love with the characters. They could easily be people I know! Wren has created a unique story telling style by using the Runes to set the tone for the story that will follow. I remember the runes because I remember what was happening in the story with the characters. What a great learning tool! This book is a great place to start if you are curious about the Runes. The characters will lead you on a tour through the Elder Futhark while enjoying the journey to Mae’s Crossing and making new friends! I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    Wren is such a magikal author. This wonderful teaching tool describes each rune with a short story, entertaining every aspect of each, for a full understanding that remains, as well as, entertains. The stories are great and I truly feel like I have a better understanding of history and runic lore. I have read and reread this book. I have recommended it to my friends and will continue to do so. I know she is currently writing another book. I cannot wait for it to come out. I will definitely be one of the first to buy it.

    As someone who had no idea what the runes was, I feel both educated and entertained. If you are curious about the runes, or want to learn more about rituals and pagan ways I highly recommend this book. It is a spiritual masterpiece in my opinion. How each chapter is a tale that further explores the greater meanings and gives a much deeper significance to runes, and all relative subjects.

    The writing is interesting and informative. It both educates whilst simultaneously entertaining, which takes skill. But Wren easily achieves this.

    I have to admit that I am not usually one to read books about spirituality, religion, wicca, paganism, witchcraft, or new age religions. But I found this thoroughly enjoyable. I am one to usually read fiction, mainly horror, thriller and mystery. But Wren teaches us to be open-minded. That we should read often and a wide range of materials and subject matters. Reading should help us grow intellect through our passion of intriguing and mystifying journeys. Mystifying is certainly a word I would use to describe this. As well as magical, enthralling, captivating and empowering.

    I love the illustrations and symbols within the book. It added an artistic flare, but also helped illustrate points.

    My understanding of a contemporary meaning of the runes grew significantly with Wren’s book. Short chapters helped maintain focus and understanding, giving information in bite size chunks, rather than daunting pages and pages of confusing text. Humans learn better in small portions, and this book is constructed based on that theory. The novel includes multiple characters, not forgetting goddesses and elves in a refreshingly up-to-date and believable manner. This masterful creation is caught in the middle of modern day realism, establishing a greater connection with the reader, preying on our sense of what is real to us. And then there is the realm of magic and the supernatural. Though one may presume it may be slow paced due to informing whilst entertaining, but actually the flow and pacing is quite the opposite. Everything, as previously mentioned, is in small chunks, but the pace is fast. An element of romance also comes into play appeals to a wider range of readers.

    For fellow readers who also loved this novel, you’ll be glad to know it is the first in a trilogy. So our addiction to read more will soon be satisfied. I find it difficult to believe this is the author’s first and only book as it is so well crafted.

    Runic Trilogy is a fantastic and original undertaking. The 1st in a trilogy of novels where each chapter is a rune in a particular position. Wren writes a fascinating and intriguing story that is impossible to put down. She brings the Runes alive, teaching their practical meaning in real life situations. Absolutely brilliant!
