Summary

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.

Below average

While the narrator was excellent as always, story was a real disappointment. At no point it excites you. Only got this book because of the first book in this series was excellent.

Great Read

A friend recommended this series to me but it took me months to decide to try it. I've just finished the second book in the series and have thoroughly enjoyed both. My hesitation was based on an unpleasant experience with another series by this same author (Pendragon) that after numerous attempts, I gave up trying to listen to. The problem with that series may have been entirely the fault of the narrator because the monotone voice kept literally putting me to sleep. This was not the case this time however, as I happily kept listening to the end and enjoyed both the narration and the story.

Excellent book 2

If you could sum up The Bone House in three words, what would they be?

Wonderfully Intricate and Unexpected twists

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kitt - is isn't anything "great" or even a high achiever but moves ahead with boldness that amazes everyone; even himself.

Have you listened to any of Simon Bubb’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have only listened to the first volume of the series. However it was excellent.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really. Kind of a mystery adventure book.

One of the best Christian Fiction writer's.

What did you love best about The Bone House?

The story kept you so engrossed that i couldn't put down the book.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters were great. And the story got better and better.

Have you listened to any of Simon Bubb’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He's as good in this as he was in all the others.

Any additional comments?

I'm sorry for those of you who read this review I know its not very good. But It was many years ago that i read the book and then i bought it on Audible and it was well worth the credit. I can say that Lawhead's books are great. I've read almost every single one. And i can't wait to get back into the series again. For some reason the first two books i've bought are not in my library. But im going to book three. I highly recommend any of Lawhead books.

A great adventure.

The Bone House is a great adventure in a multidimensional universe. Kit and Cosimo are betrayed, by Lady Fayth, Kit finally finds Wilhelmina in Prague, Arthur Flinders Petrie has a child, and Kit travels to a land where he lives among a tribe of cavemen, and the Bone House is built. Well narrated by Simon Bubb, The Bone House by Stephen Lawhead is another masterpiece in the Bright Empires series.
