The adventures of JOHN STORM and the ELIZABETH SWANN


THE HOLY COMPASS  by Jameson Hunter


Planet earth is uniue in all the universe for its abundance and variety of animals, every one of which should be protected









Many treasure seekers have searched for the mythical holy grail; the Cup of Christ, the Liahona, the all knowing guide, the answer to all our questions about the meaning and secrets of life. More than a thousand years before the coming of Christ the ancient Egyptian priests had decoded and recorded the secrets of nature, immortality and power, condensed in an intricate orb. They then buried their knowledge with their great pharaoh Akenakon for his journey into the afterlife, but the secret was stolen from his tomb by raiders and though the Holy Compass cropped up in history unforgettably, it has been lost in the sands of time for over 2000 years. 


What lies within the ancient device the world will soon find out and that depends on who recovers it for good or evil? With the power of the Holy Compass it is said the bearer may perform miracles, walk on water and cure diseases like cancer. If that sounds familiar then you'll have some idea of what is in store for John Storm as one of his archaeological hunches turns into an epic adventure of biblical proportions.....


Please note that the rights to this story have now passed to Cleaner Ocean Foundation Ltd. The Plot has been developed with a new website for collaborative writing, as of December 2022.


Although written in book form, the John Storm Franchise is being adapted to scripts and graphic novels. Book publishing should follow.
