Excerpt from the first chapter

500 BC

Captain Patteleo’s face was a cloud of concern. A cold sweat broke out just below his hairline and panic pounded in his temples. They were going to die. “Commander, we’ve lost power. The fire fatally damaged the control panel.”

The commander pressed his lips hard together, trying to remain calm. Damn! “Why didn’t the backup power come on?”

“I don’t know, but the ship is descending at a rapid pace. If I don’t get the power back on, we’ll hit the ocean in minutes.”

“Turn on the tracking device.” The tracking device was located on top of the ship and had its own power source that could last centuries. At least our people can locate our ship and recover our research, he thought.

Their ship struck the water at eight hundred miles an hour. The impact was so powerful that a spray of white water soared a hundred feet into the air, sending the team hurtling through the ship, violently crashing into walls and equipment. When Commander Tallaios regained consciousness, he lay in a fog. What happened? He looked around, but the room was spinning and his head was throbbing. He squinted his eyes in confusion. Nothing made sense. The control panel was hanging from the roof upside down. Then his memories came flooding back—the fight, the blast, the fire, and then the crash. He realized the ship had landed upside down. The ramifications hit him like a bolt of lightning. The tracking device won’t be able to emit a signal.

He clenched his teeth and slammed his fist down hard in frustration. Now the mission’s a complete failure. He closed his eyes in disappointment. He thought about the other team members. He needed to search for survivors. He struggled to get up, but his legs wouldn’t budge. He lay back down in despair. Probably a broken back. “Can anyone hear me?” he yelled. No answer. Maybe no one else survived.

He sighed heavily in acceptance. He was going to spend the remainder of his short life entombed two miles down at the bottom of the ocean. He had nothing to do but think—think about how horribly wrong everything went.
