You’ve heard the stories of Norse gods. Thor. Odin. Ragnarok. I’m here to tell you they’re all true. I know because I was there.
My name is Loki.
A thousand years ago, give or take a century or two, I walked the Nine Realms with my brothers, spreading mischief and leaving behind a trail of broken hearts wherever I roamed. I built an unforgettable brand as the trickster god, the father of the Midgard Serpent, Fenrir the wolf, and even Hel herself. In my exploits, I may have accidentally on purpose triggered a bit of unpleasantness that led to the end of the world, but apparently, it wasn’t the end of me. Recently, the shield of ice that froze me in an arctic cage melted (thanks, global warming), and I clawed my way to the surface of a new world.
With a fresh lease on life and a rocking-hot body, I just need one thing: the rune that grants me immortality.
Oh, and a bra would be nice. These boobs really know how to get in the way of a good hustle.
As the toughest son with the fewest morals, Manō Alana promised his mother that he’d protect his siblings. Since her death, he’s embraced his role as the family heavy, but killing is the one part of his job he hates. And the awful nightmares driving him to commit violence aren’t doing him any favors—nor is the sinister, ancient magic calling to him from under the slopes of a dormant volcano.
A shakeup in power between rival drug lords reveals a half brother Manō didn’t know he had, complicating the Alana family’s plans to take over the marijuana trade on Maui. Not only that, but one wrong move could turn the sexy cop he’s involved with against the family.
When a crime the Alanas fought hard to bury is exposed, their whole cartel is in danger. Now Manō’s blood has him trapped between two clans: the siblings he’s loved since they were kids, and the ruthless, shadowy kin he just learned he has.
Manō can either succumb to the darkness threatening to drag him under or tap in to its power and embrace his role as a cold-blooded killer.
The first podcast is done! However, until the first episode is approved by iTunes, this is the only place you’ll be able to download it. I will update this post later today with the links for the other services as soon as they’re ready.
We will also be moving the posting date to Mondays. As we are just getting this up and running, it’s a learning experience, and the thing I learned is that editing 2+ hours of raw podcast takes a lot longer than I anticipated. When all was said and done, the podcast was cut down to just north of an hour and a half. So, going forward, we will record on Friday nights (most times) and post on Monday mornings. 🙂
Also, we will NOT be uploading to SoundClick as originally planned. The files are too big and they dont allow 3rd party hosting. So, I will be exploring other options for where to upload it. For right now, here on the blog, iTunes, and YouTube will be it. 🙂
Hope you guys like it!
