“The Bone House”, by Stephen R. Lawhead, is the second book in the Bright Empires series. It continues the adventures of Kit and Mina as they travel through alternate
realities to stop the evil Lord Burleigh.
The Bright Empires series is a wonderful mix of suspense, fantasy and history as Kit, Mina and other characters travel between different time periods. One of the great things
about this book is that it inspired me to go online and learn more about some of the historical characters featured, such as Roger Bacon and Thomas Young.
Most of all, “The Bone House” is a fast-paced, action-packed read. The characters grab you and keep you wondering what is happening as you switch between time lines and stories.
This is not a stand-alone book. It will not make much sense to you unless you have read “The Skin Map”, the first book in the Bright Empires series. In fact, at times I wished that I had waited for all three books to come out before reading them, so to better keep track of
the many plot twists. I think before the third book comes out next year, I will reread the first two.
