The Skin Map by Stephen Lawhead

Attention Readers!

It is time for another wonderful book by Stephen Lawhead. I am a fan of Mr. Lawhead's work.
I am never disappointed by any of his books, though I do have favorites. I think I am missing a few, and I will have to remedy that!

The Skin Map is another shining example of Mr. Lawhead's great creativity and ability to immerse himself and his readers in a very intriguing story, which has enough plausibility to make it be a very real possibility!

(I have to run an errend, when I return I will tell you much more about this book, unless I vanish on a ley line while I am gone!)

O.k, No ley lines got me while I was gone. I have to say I am really thrilled with this book and I can't wait for the next installments of this series. I love the old England and German towns and settings that Mr. Lawhead so skillfully wove into the very fabric of The Skin Map. The idea alone of a map made of skin that has this kind of power was intriguing as well. I am throughly enjoying the transformation that Willamina is going through, as well as the massive adventure that is training Kit.

I can not wait to read the next four books!

Stephen R. Lawhead

He has written twenty-four novels; his most recent one is The Skin Map; a BRIGHT EMPIRES novel. "Once again, Lawhead has penned an epic tale, putting a new spin on an old legend. Full of rich imagery, this page-turner will appeal to fans of suspense and fantasy." – Library Journal

The Skin Map


Stephen Lawhead has embarked on his most ambitious writing project to date: the five-book BRIGHT EMPIRES series. The first volume, The Skin Map, has a publication date of 1 September 2010.

The series is underpinned by the cutting-edge work of quantum physicists, natural philosophers, and cosmologists who describe a universe not only much greater, but also far stranger than we imagine.
