The Skin Map - by Stephen Lawhead *Book Review
I really enjoyed this book. There is plenty of adventure and intrigue to keep me interested and involved. I did not care for the way the book ended. It left a TON of loose ends. Initially I didn't realize that this was the first book in the series. My first reaction was "You can't end a book that way!!" But I was relieved when I realized there was more to come. I am definitely looking forward to the release of the next book! I found the first one fascinating even if the ending was frustrating. I'm sure all my questions will be answered by the end of the trilogy.
I've read some of Lawhead's works before, principally the Song of Albion trilogy. If you've read his "ley" travel books before you'd be pretty familiar with his premise. I enjoy his writing style, and look forward to following these characters on their adventures.
I received a complimentary copy of the book to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed are my honest thoughts of the product.
