An Ancient Cataclysm Unleashed…
After persuading Egyptian authorities to let them inspect the newly discovered chamber, Spire and Casey make a remarkable discovery, one which leads the pair on a hunt for the remains of one of the lost Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – the legendary Colossus of Rhodes. Someone else is also hunting for the lost pieces of the ancient statue however. A group who believe that if they discover the final resting place of the colossus, they will also discover a secret more powerful than the Gods themselves, and when they do, they intend to unleash a cataclysm upon the modern world, the likes of which has never been seen before.
