Dragon Curse, is set in the first century Roman World at the end of the reign of Nero. Patrician, Gaius Petronicus is a prosperous and leading citizen in the town of Alerios on the island of Corsica. When Simon Magus, a self-proclaimed healer and, spiritual leader from Samaria, comes to town, Gaius takes his blind daughter Portia to get healed. Instead of healing her, the holy man molests her. In return, Gaius attacks and mutilates Simon Magus. In revenge, Simon's three wives cast a horrendous magic curse upon his house and business. Gaius has to search for ways to break this curse from over his house. This spell causes great anxiety and wreaks havoc on Gaius and especially with his wife Ginea's mind and those of his slaves. Only Justa, Gaius's slave, and Agnes the Good, who leads a tiny early Christian assembly, can make sense of what is going on.

Along with this fire, Gaius experiences, pagan sacrifices, dreams, omens, a ghost that climbs out of a wall, dragon creatures and a final tsunami in this line of adventures. Join in the superstitious world where Gaius discovers that curses of the mind cannot be easily overcome.
