Book Review: The Skin Map by Stephen R. Lawhead

The Skin Map by Stephen R. Lawhead

Hang on to your seat; you are in for a fast, adventurous ride!  Quickly you are pulled into a parallel universe; however, when travelling back and forth you don’t know where you’ll end up … hence the map being tattooed onto the body.

What a fascinating story!  It is Sci-Fi Fantasy told in a three part series; The Skin Map is the first in the series.  I don’t want to give away anything but, I will say that ley lines (lines where two dimensions meet) allow for travel in the multi-layered universe … and so a hunt begins!

I found that the book presented quite the interesting concept: alternate realities.  It gave me a reason to stop and think “what if?”

Stephen R. Lawhead’s book is written fairly well and is quite an exhilarating read.  I am so happy to have had the opportunity to discover this author.  I can’t wait for the second book in the series!  I would definitely recommend this book since it is truly an adventure.

Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy.
