The story of Prometheus the Titan is well known. He stole fire from Zeus and gave it to humans. Zeus and the gods then decided to punish Prometheus by chaining him to a rock and having an eagle tear out his liver every day. The gods made his liver grow back at night just so they can put him through endless torture. But nothing ever stays the same, even in the world of the gods! So after 8000 years of agony, Prometheus has finally broken free of his chains. His delight at his new freedom doesn't last long though, for the gods send the Eagle after him and hunt him down. Desperate to escape his vicious pursuer, Prometheus realises there is one great escape route - to travel through time. Prometheus travels to Eden City, falling in with a motley band of loveable rogues. His new friends get in trouble and he wants to use his titanic powers to help them, but here's the big catch - if he uses his powers the Eagle can sense his presence through time and track him down. Will Prometheus save his friends and risk his liver-loving enemy finding him...?show more
