Deep inside the cisterns of Tiryns, the home of Heracles, the four SEALs find the source of life-giving water and experience the meaning behind Poseidon's nickname of Earth Shaker. excerpt: I can’t remember whether I screamed or not. If I did, the sound was lost in the thundering of rock and water. With a wrenching, grinding roar, the steps heaved upwards, throwing me heavily into the tunnel wall. A second violent convulsion pitched me downward onto my knees, back toward the well’s chamber, and I slammed the opposite wall with shoulder and chest as I toppled. Instinctively, I wrapped both arms around my head, expecting a rain of stone at any second. The earth roared and heaved again, and a heavy, struggling weight landed on me, driving the breath out of my lungs as it slid: Morgan. I twisted frantically and clutched at him to check his downward plunge: failed, and felt my forearm explode into pain and numbness as it caught the edge of a flailing boot. That quickly, he was gone, lost in the rush of cold water that surged over me. The deafening blast of the well-turned-fountain and the rumble of stone grinding against stone muted suddenly as water filled my ears and pulled me down. read more
