The story behind the making of the album that signaled the descent of Sylvester Sly Stone Stewart into a haze of drug addiction and delirium is captivating enough for the cinema. In the spacious attic of a Beverly Hills mansion belonging to John and Michelle Phillips (of the Mamas and the Papas), during the fall of 1970, Sly Stone began recording his follow-up to 1969´s Stand!, the most popular album of his band´s career. 1.

Nothing is what it seems....Basra is the eternal city - a paradise filled with relics of the old world. We are welcomed into the upper sanctum of Basranian society where sly smiles and wicked eyes tempt us with riches and lavish comfort, yet something seems hopelessly wrong. The city is decaying. A rotten core with a deadly key that unlocks something even more sinister in one of the guy´s pasts. And paradise is filled with lies and deceit....As an ambassador for Tartarus, it´s my duty to bridge the gap between us and the other cities. But even more, as part of this team, it´s my right to know the truth. We need these alliances now more than ever. Duty or not, though, I will seek out the truth of Basra. I will find the rotten core and cut it out. And then I´ll unlock the door to his past and hopefully find the key to our salvation. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Larsen.

The gods walk among us. And they just might steal your soul...or your heart. I thought I´d survived everything life could throw at me. All I wanted was to keep my distance from the criminals I work for and get my little brother out of the hell that is our mother´s house. Then I died and woke up to four stunningly hot gods telling me I´m now a valkyrie. Sly, sharp Loki. Jovial but ferocious Thor. Dreamily compassionate Baldur. Grim and secretive Hod. They all have something to teach me. And around them, my walls start to crack. But the gods didn´t summon me just for kicks. Their king is missing, and they need me to find him. The first three valkyries they sent on the job never made it back. More power is awakening in me than I could ever have imagined - and the gods´ enemies are more devious than even they knew. It´s going to take every trick in the book for me to save myself, my brother, and these divine men who´re getting under my skin in the most alluring way. I´m Aria Watson, and Valhalla ain´t seen nothing yet. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Samantha Cook, Aiden Snow.
