The Skin Map is tale of inter-dimensional voyaging. Londoner Kit Livingstone and his girlfriend, Wilhelmina, are separated and sent back to an alternate 17th-century England. A terribly terrifying and traumatic experience for both of them.
There Kit’s great-grandfather Cosimo reveals secretive time travelers are racing the evil Lord Archelaeus Burleigh to locate a map holding an earthshaking secret. Stranded when Cosimo vanishes into a portal, Kit falls in with the beautiful Lady Fayth while Wilhelmina struggles to survive on her own in Prague. Two people of the same era now finds themselves being thrown into another dimension and time and tries to make head and tails of things around them. Survival is quite a struggle for both.
Kit Livingstone’s great-grandfather has re-appeared with a very queer story, which is the ley lines throughout Britain are not merely the stuff of legends but truly are pathways to other worlds and another dimension
And only a few people know how to use them. But, in doing so, they put themselves in the path of danger.
But one explorer knew more than the rest. Fearing that one day he won’t be able to find his his way home, he developed an intricate code and tattooed his map onto his skin. Yes, that’s right, onto his skin. Just like in Prison Break. (Where Micheal Scofield tattooed his plans of breaking out of prison on his skin)
But the map has since been lost and rival factions are in desperate competition to recover it. What none of them yet realize is that the skin map itself is not the prize at the end of this race . . . but merely the first goal of a vast and marvelous quest to regain Paradise.
Is this a good book? Well… considering of the not so strong and rather confusing storyline and how things flow, this book is quite a good read, only if you like mysteries and books like Dan Brown’s Da Vin Ci Code and stories like Prison Break.
I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review and therefore, the book review is 100% my own opinion.
