One piece of the Skin Map has been found. Now the race to unravel the future of the future turns deadly.

Kit Livingstone met his great grandfather Cosimo in a rainy alley in London where he discovered the reality of alternate realities.

Now he’s on the run-and on a quest-trying to understand the impossible mission he inherited from Cosimo: to restore a map that charts the hidden dimensions of the multiverse. Survival depends on staying one step ahead of the savage Burley Men.

The key is the Skin Map-but where it leads and what it means, Kit has no idea. The pieces have been scattered throughout this universe and beyond.

Mina, from her outpost in seventeenth-century Prague, is quickly gaining both the experience and the means to succeed in the quest. Yet so are those with evil intent who, from the shadows, are manipulating great minds of history for their own malign purposes.

Those who know how to use ley lines have left their own world behind to travel across time and space-down avenues of Egyptian sphinxes, to an Etruscan tufa tomb, a Bohemian coffee shop, and a Stone Age landscape where universes collide-in this, the second quest to unlock the mystery of The Bone House.

Book 2 of the Bright Empires series.

    The concept of the multiverse used to bother me immensely, because it was first explained to be by an atheist who was telling me that my faith (and pretty everything else) was meaningless.  Yet, the depth of the multiverse concept is worth probing; God is infinite, and infinite possibilities or realities, if they existed, would still partake of God’s grace.
    I’ve read a little multiverse fiction, most notably the secular interactive novel Blue Lacuna.  I should read this one some day; it sounds like it has good ideas.  Unfortunately, I haven’t yet read anything by Lawhead at all. 🙁
