First of all, I announce to you that THE SONG OF ALBION will be re-released by Thomas Nelson in hardcover on August 31st!
This is fantastic news for what I consider one of Lawhead’s greatest fantasy series, and one of the best I have ever read. It has been available in softcover, but now you can get a hardcover keeper for your bookshelf.
And August 31st, 2010 will be special for one other reason…!
Stephen Lawhead’s breath-taking new fantasy, THE SKIN MAP is now available for PRE-ORDER!
Yes, that’s right, Bright Empires Book 1 is right around the corner! Not only, but the new cover is displayed to the left, and the description for the book is as follows:
“He had a sensation of being told a secret he knew to be true, but which would be far, far easier—and much safer—to ignore; all the more so since he strongly suspected that acknowledging the truth meant his life would change utterly.”
Kit Livingstone’s great-grandfather has re-appeared with an unbelievable story—the ley lines throughout Britain are not merely the stuff of legends but truly are pathways to other worlds. So few people know how to use them, though, that doing so is fraught with danger.
But one explorer knew more than most. Because of his fear of being unable to find his way home, he developed an intricate code and tattooed his map onto 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.
Enter the ultimate treasure hunt—with a map made of skin, a playing field of alternate realities, and a prize that is the greatest mystery of all.
Okay. You may now commence drooling.
