The Magellan Compass - Chapter 1
Driven by the mysterious disappearance of his wife and daughter, intrepid explorer Glacier Thorne spent years scouring the farthest corners of the earth, growing famous in the process, and then, like many reality TV stars, ultimately washed up. As the 21st century shuffles forward it's become clear that there's nowhere left to look on earth. When the enigmatic Calia Caldwell reveals to Thorne the existence of uncharted parts of the world and offers to lead him there, for a price of course, he sees her offer as his last chance to find his missing family, no matter how suspect Calia's motives. Thorne puts his ragtag band of exploronauts back together and they set out on one last adventure, not realizing that the fate of the entire world is about to fall into their lap.
