The Frowning Madonna


It's 412 A.D., the Roman Empire is on the brink of collapse. In Albion, Lalia gathers with fellow supplicants to call on the Goddess Cybele to aid Londinium. When a rival mob attacks, a golden orb is lost, trapping the goddess in her statue. Before she turns to stone, Cybele lays a curse on Lalia's head; she is bound in a cycle of reincarnation and death. Only the return of the orb will set her free. 

Through a dozen lifetimes Lalia, chases the orb while jealous gods and goddess impede her way, manipulating the location of Cybele’s golden ball to suit their whims. As its fame grows, kings, queens and world leaders seek to harness the unlimited power of the orb. Faced with a world tearing itself apart with war, Lalia must choose between ending the curse and saving the city she loves from destruction.
