Out of the great halls of Asgard, home of the Norse Gods...came one of the greatest Norse legends. Thor, powerful god of thunder, and his brother Loki, the trickster, were eager to resolve an argument: does strength always win, or do brains always beat brawn? To find an answer, they travel to the strange and forbidding land of giants. There they will face a series of challenges that will prove once and for all which god is right. Or will it? 1.

Im Jahre 1838 erschien die Erstausgabe von Gustav Schwabs ´´Sagen des klassischen Altertums´´. Durch Schwabs Werk sind in über 150 Jahren Zehntausende schon in ihrer Jugend mit dem Bildungsgut der antiken Sagenwelt in Berührung gekommen. Er hat die großen und kleinen Quellflüsse antiker Sagenüberlieferungen in seinem Werk wie in einem antiken Sammelbecken zusammenlaufen lassen und es ist ihm gelungen aus Stoffen unterschiedlicher Herkunft eine gerundete und einprägsame Darstellung zu schaffen, die in Ihrer Art einzigartig ist und über die Hermann Hesse schrieb: ´´Hier können wir harmlos und unbeirrt im Land der Griechen und Trojer wandeln, von Zeus und Ikaros in gutem Deutsch und ohne Noten und ohne Kommentare lesen´´. Der schwäbischen Dichter, dessen Dichtung wir beiseitegelegt und vergessen haben, lebt in diesem schönen Sagenbuch, das jeder Lateinschüler besitzen und besser kennen sollte als den großen oder kleinen Ploetz, weiter. Er stand vor keiner leichten Aufgabe: Über Jahrhunderte hinweg hatte sich die Fantasie der Helenen an den mündlich überlieferten Mythen und Heldensagen entzündet. Schwab musste auswählen, Widersprüche tilgen, verschiedene Elemente in Einklang bringen. Die meisten Schwierigkeiten bereiteten die kleinen Sagen, die Mythen, die den ersten Teil des Hörbuches bilden. Sie bestehen aus den Erzählungen: Prometheus, Die Menschenalter, Deukalion und Pyrrha, Phaeton, Europa, Kadmos, Pentheus, Ion, Perseus, Dädalos und Ikaros. Mit einem Einleitungstext gesprochen von Andrea Hörnke-Trieß. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Matthias Ponnier. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/swrm/000623/bk_swrm_000623_sample.mp3.

Wildly swinging axes and swords upon majestic boats, Vikings have been a long-appreciated symbol of rage and power. They have been romanticized as overbearingly-manly warriors that plunder, loot and pillage villages all for the sake of dominance. They´ve always been in modern media, but where did they come from? How did they start? What brought them to the apex of influence that still makes them relevant up to this day?Their colorful history starts in the form of a migration. These warriors started out as nomads looking for new places to inhabit to prolong their lineage. Mainly travelling by sea, they´ve been defined as pirates that went from shore to shore, trading and occupying the villages that lived on the patches of land they would visit. Said to have hailed from the countries of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, these seafaring people made their mark in the world from 700AD to 1100AD. That’s more than 300 years of colorful and bloody history. The earliest accounts of known Viking activity date all the way back to the 11th century in Lindisfarne, an island lying along the northern edges of England. From there, the northern origins of these warriors were sculpted. This account wasn´t a friendly one, though. The warriors were said to have looted and burned the church and other structures to the ground. Monks at that time were either killed or brought along as slaves when the Vikings were done with the area. That point marked the beginning of years and years of attacks and loots under the Viking flags. Even the origin of their name comes from a derivation of the Scandinavian term for ´´pirate´´ which is ´´vikingr´´. From that point, their influence spread all throughout Europe, cementing their names in the annals of scholars and monks during those times. While a large number of them pillaged and looted, other Vikings ended up as farmers and traders that settled in some of the lands they visited. Their influence sprea 1. Language: English.

First Doctor William Hartnell and his companions mix with mythical Greek Gods in this exclusive audio recording of a ´lost´ television soundtrack, with linking narration by Peter Purves. The Doctor has adopted many guises in his time, but to be hailed as the great god Zeus is a bit of a shock. Yet this is exactly what happens when the TARDIS lands on the plains of Asia Minor, not far from the city of Troy. Taken to the Greek camp by Achilles, the Doctor is introduced to Agamemnon and Odysseus and forced to admit his less¿than¿godlike status. He is then given just two days to come up with a strategy for defeating the Trojans. Meanwhile, Steven and Vicki have been taken prisoner by the other side. The Trojans are convinced that Vicki is a spy, and to prove her loyalty she must concoct a plan to defeat the Greeks! Like the Doctor, she has just two days to do it. Luckily for the Doctor, a certain someone has already devised a scheme for beating the Trojans. Even if the wooden horse was invented for a piece of fiction written in the eighth century, it still works. As the opposing forces come face to face in a climactic battle, there are dangers aplenty for both Steven and Vicki. By the time the TARDIS moves away again, it will have both lost and gained a crew member. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Hartnell, Peter Purves, full cast.

Myths come alive in the Shapeshifter Sagas. Standalone stories to intrigue and excite. ´´I didn´t like this book, I absolutely loved it!´´ - Five-star review from ebookaddicts.net ´´Not my usual genre but I found myself totally involved in the story line and with the characters.´´ Five-star review from Miki´s Hope Along the breathtaking and unforgiving coast of Snaeland, Asta´s ancestral farm is plagued with bad luck. The kinless maiden´s turf walls continue to be found damaged, and there are not enough farmhands to maintain the property. Claw marks in the dirt revive old memories of the wolf attack that left her scarred, and she begins to fear the whispers are true - that Fenrir, son of Loki and king of the wolves, has come to claim her and her land. Torin often leaves his uncle´s farm in the southern hills to track and ensnare valuable gyrfalcons. His secret ability to turn into the birds he trains means his falconry skills are unparalleled, earning him precious silver. If the ghosts of his past didn´t haunt him daily, pushing him to numb his senses with drink, Torin might have married by now - as his uncle often reminds him. But the time has finally come to find a wife and settle down. If they are to overcome their problems, they must do so together, or the scars from their past might destroy them both. 1.
