Her quest shows her just how far some are willing to go for the sake of humanity. ´´Enchanted Globe´´: James has never been the ambitious type - although, in his heart, he´s always known he´s meant for something better than his family´s pawn shop. When a mysteriously unique globe is pawned at his shop, the instructions given along with it were almost laughable. Spin the globe and visit that location for 24 hours, the elderly man had told him. It was ridiculous to James - until it actually worked. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Scholl. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/009079/bk_acx0_009079_sample.mp3.
