November CSFF: The Skin Map by Stephen Lawhead

Here is my review of this incredible book:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Stephen Lawhead and his publisher for sending me a copy of "The Skin Map" to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, but haven’t been very consistent in taking the time to thank them in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me.

"The Skin Map" by Stephen R. Lawhead is Book One in the brand new Bright Empires series. Arthur Flinders-Petrie is "The Man Who Is Map". Actually, he was a man, now he is just a map... A map that has been separated into five pieces that, when reassembled, may lead to "the secret of the universe" or something even better. Kit Livingstone's mysterious confrontation with his great-grandfather, Cosimo, puts him on the path to seek out this disassembled treasure map that is tattooed on human skin!

Beautifully written, British-flavored prose adds elegance and intelligence to this terrific fantasy-adventure novel that transcends time and space.
