From the Publisher:

It is the ultimate quest for the ultimate treasure. Chasing a map tattooed on human skin. Across an omniverse of intersecting realities. To unravel the future of the future.

Kit Livingstone's great-grandfather appears to him in a deserted alley during a tumultuous storm. He reveals an unbelievable story: that the ley lines throughout Britain are not merely the stuff of legend or the weekend hobby of deluded cranks, but pathways to other worlds. To those who know how to use them, they grant the ability to travel the multi-layered universe of which we ordinarily inhabit only a tiny part.

One explorer knew more than most. Braving every danger, he toured both time and space on voyages of heroic discovery. Ever on his guard and fearful of becoming lost in the cosmos, he developed an intricate code-a roadmap of symbols-that he tattooed onto his own body. This Skin Map has since been lost in time. Now the race is on to recover all the pieces and discover its secrets.

But the Skin Map itself is not the ultimate goal. It is merely the beginning of a vast and marvelous quest for a prize beyond imagining.

The Bright Empires series-from acclaimed author Stephen R. Lawhead-is a unique blend of epic treasure hunt, ancient history, alternate realities, cutting-edge physics, philosophy, and mystery. The result is a page-turning, adventure like no other.

"Anything but ordinary . . . Dynamic settings are mixed with unpredictable adventures [and] parallel worlds." -BookPage

Author Bio
Stephen R. Lawhead
Unlike many science fiction and fantasy authors, Stephen R. Lawhead studied Fine Art while attending college (Kearny State in Nebraska). While there he wrote both poetry and a column in the college paper, though it wasn't until several years later that he turned to fiction. In the meantime, he played guitar in a rock group, studied at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, and started and managed a record company. His first novel, IN THE HALL OF THE DRAGON KING, appeared in 1982. The first volume of Lawhead's Pendragon Cycle, an Arthurian fantasy series, was published in 1987, and was derived from research Lawhead had done in England, a country to which he and his family eventually immigrated in 1990. The Pendragon books are arguably Lawhead's most popular--the second of which, ARTHUR, even received a nomination for the Locus Award, an award voted on by the readers of science fiction and fantasy. Lawhead has also written non-fiction guides to life in college, several in collaboration with his wife, Alice.
