The The Scorpion : The Devil's Mark Devil's Mark v. 1 Paperback
Illustrated by Marini
Part of the Scorpion (Cinebook) series
Rome the beautiful is dying, the symbol of civilization falling, the empire burning.
Hidden from massacres and looting, a strange meeting is held by nine families who share the Roman Empire.
To retain their power, they decide to support a new religion - Christianity - as well as its representative, the pope.
But who are these 9 mysterious families? Later, much later, it's the Renaissance. Christianity prospers. A brigand called 'the Scorpion' makes a living by unearthing relics in the depths of the Roman catacombs, which he sells at high prices to princes and bishops.
Trebaldi, a powerful cardinal, takes an interest in this Scorpion, who is either a creature of the devil or a witness to a cursed era who must disappear.
This two-volume book includes "The Pope's Secret ".
