Publisher's Summary

The quest for the Skin Map, originally tattooed on The Man Who is Map is now in pieces and scattered across time and space in a universe of multiple realities.
But what if the true treasure isn’t the map at all . . . what if the map marks something far greater? Those wanting to unlock that mystery are in a race to possess the secret – for good or evil. Kit Livingstone is mastering the ability to travel through the Omniverse 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, still determined to find Kit, is beginning to experience a greater destiny than she can fathom.Enter Cassandra Clarke. She is overseeing an archaeological dig in Arizona when a chance encounter transports her to 1950s Damascus. There, she finds herself pursued by the Seekers—members of the Zetetic Society who need her help to track down the missing Cosimo Livingstone and his grandson Kit.They’re all desperate to gain the ultimate prize in a treasure hunt where ancient history, alternate realities, cutting edge physics, eternal mystery, and philosophy intersect. The next clue might reside at The Spirit Well.
Well of Souls, from medieval Oxford to modern-day Spain, from the pyramids of Egypt to an ancient shrine in China, the race continues for a prize beyond all imagining.

intriguing concept. Love the story

Would you listen to The Spirit Well again? Why?

Yes i would listen again. I will get all the series and than listen to all again. That way I do not have to wait so long between books. Need to listen to the first 2 books before this book. I believe there will be 5 in the series. Stephen Lawhead does a good job of holding my interest with multiple threads through the book. He did leave some threads open in this book so we have to get the next book in the series to get closer.


What other book might you compare The Spirit Well to and why?

I would compare this some what to Ted Dekker's Black/Red/White. In Teds books only one person goes between realities. Here there are multiple people going to different time and place.

Best. Narrator. Ever.

The voices this narrator pulls off for each character, no matter how minor, really makes this book come alive.
