Cutting Boards. Calligraphy Resources. Sewing Books. The thing that was different in The Spirit Well, as I saw it, was that the story itself called for this format. This was not a whimsical approach, an author showing off his cleverness for the sake of impressing his readership. This story is better, or perhaps, requires, this interweaving of characters and places and times. Lawhead does it brilliantly. In addition, in The Spirit Well the characters come alive, largely because they grow and change.
One more. The settings are rich. Lawhead did a remarkable job bringing these various places, and times, alive. All his talents as a historical novelist are on display. I never found it so. Kit is thrust from the Stone Age and is in immediate danger, Mina must flee her home in Prague or be captured, Cass follows her scholarly curiosity and becomes lost in another dimension with no way of knowing how to get home.
Meanwhile, Arthur, the man who tattooed the ley line locations to his body, is killed, the map created, and divided. This one is a cut above the others. In addition, this feels important—like Mr. Lawhead is showing in his story great spiritual truths.
I have no reason to believe that to be so. I could be wrong, but at this point, I think the direction of the Bright Empires series is up. This is a must read for Stephen Lawhead fans and for those interested in time travel stories or multidimensional stories.
I highly recommend it to people who enjoy historical fiction or fantasy. But my recommendation is to start with The Skin Map and read them all. Also be sure to tell your friends. They might be ticked off if they find out you were sitting on this one without telling them. Jul 30, Becca rated it really liked it. Another well narrated audio book. I have been enjoying this series and I look forward to how this story will ultimately end. My husband is also reading this series and is a bit farther along.
On a recent long drive we plugged this one in so I could continue listening to it. He mentioned, "Ahh, this is when it gets goddy" I am not sure I would necessarily describe it as such but yes, this book does start to involve characters that see the act of traveling between worlds far more religiously. I Another well narrated audio book. I don't yet feel that any untoward preaching has occurred but he said it only gets worse in his opinion, but yet he wants to know what will happen so he also continues reading.
So bottom line is we are both still very much enjoying this series with or without an unanticipated religious connotation.

Sep 12, Tara rated it liked it. I haven't entirely decided yet if it's C. Lewis kind of tolerable theological angle, or blergh level of bothersome preachy fundie Christian theologizing. Slightly leaning towards the latter enough that this one made me wrinkle my nose a bit but I'll probably pursue book 4 and hopefully I won't feel the need to throw my Kindle across the room. May 23, Bernie Anderson rated it really liked it. Continuation of a great yarn. While I know that Lawhead is an author who writes from his Christian world-view something I personally appreciate , there were a couple of places where the "faith" aspect felt forced.
My guess is it had something to do with an editor at Thomas Nelson publishers? Could be wrong. In spite of that, I'm having fun with this series and will be picking up the next book forthwith. Oct 07, Vada rated it liked it. This book was much slower than the first two I read and seemed to jump around quite a bit more too. It took me over two weeks to work through it, for reference I read the first two in a matter of days. Still a good read, just a little long in the tooth to hold my attention.

Feb 09, Gina Cochran rated it really liked it Shelves: magical-fantasy. The story of Kit, Mina, and company continues with new characters and new adventures in new dimensions. Can't wait to read the final book to see how the author brings all the story lines together to "save the world". Oct 22, Kara Cobb rated it it was ok. Sep 07, Julie rated it really liked it. Audio book This series just keeps getting better! Apr 04, Honikaua rated it it was ok. Just dragging on I think. And now introducing even more characters. I thought it should have wrapped up by now but no, sigh.
Apr 25, Leslie rated it really liked it. Not as caught up in the Cassandra storyline. Aug 01, June Hanson rated it did not like it. I think this has been my favorite book in the series so far. Lots of new plot development and new characters. Excited to read on! Oct 13, Victor Gentile rated it it was amazing.
Stephen R. From the back cover: The search for the map—and the secret behind its cryptic code—intensifies in a quest across time, space, and multiple realities. Something one world cannot contain? Those who desire to unlock that mystery are in a race Stephen R.
Those who desire to unlock that mystery are in a race to possess the secret—for good or evil. Kit Livingstone is mastering the ability to travel across realities using ley lines and has forged a link from the Bone House, a sacred lodge made of animal bones, to the fabled Spirit Well, a place of profound power. His friend Mina is undercover in a Spanish monastery high in the Pyrenees, learning all she can from a monk named Brother Lazarus. Still determined to find Kit, she is beginning to experience a greater destiny than she can fathom.
Cassandra Clarke is overseeing an archaeological dig in Arizona when a chance encounter transports her to s Damascus. There, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to the Seekers—the last living remnants of the Zetetic Society who need her help to track down the missing Cosimo Livingstone and his grandson Kit. At the heart of the mystery lies the Spirit Well. There is a concept known as Ley Travel. This is not the same as Time Travel, which is movement between the past, present and the future. No, Ley Travel, which involves lines of electromagnetic force embedded in the Earth can cause jumps not only in time but in space and reality as well.
Explorer Arthur Flinders-Petrie used these Ley Lines and recorded his trips by tattooing his map on his torso. When he died this map was divided up in various places and times. Kit Livingstone is still on the quest given to him by his great-grandfather, Cosimo, to restore the skin map. This is not an easy task as not only is he in search of it others are as well.
