The Bone House - Bright Empires #2
This book has a small summery in the beginning to remind you of what had recently happened in the last book (The Skin Map), but if you never read the last book, it is advised you do not read this, as it is a sequential series (means it must be read in order).
I have to say that the beginning of the book really does help draw you back into the story line, and that it continues to do so through the book.
I know there are those out there that do not like a book to go between characters for each chapter, and if that is the case, you wouldn't like this book series. As for me, I love this book and the first, so can't wait for the third book to come out (The Spirit Well).
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
One piece of the Skin Map has been found. Now the race to unravel the future of the future turns deadly.
An avenue of Egyptian sphinxes, an Etruscan tufa tomb, a Bohemian coffee shop, and a Stone Age landscape where universes collide …
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 while 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.
Across time and space, through manifest and hidden worlds, those who know how to use ley lines to travel through astral planes have left their own world behind in this, the second quest: to unlock the mystery of The Bone House.
