Ive never heard of Lawhead before, but after reading "the skin map", I'll say hes a very accomplished writer. Ive always like fantasy books myself (dragons and whatnot), but this tale of other dimensions and different times was captivating. he mixes a fantasy with a strong logical science, that made me want to look up some things. the story starts out as a reluctant and scared "kit" has to find his lost girlfriend. with the help of his long thought dead great-grandfather, they go off to look for a precious map to guide them on their way. a very interesting read, and I'm considering reading the second quest in the bright empires trilogy "the bone house"
