The Bone House by Stephen R. Lawhead

The Bone House

This is the second book in the Bright Empires series following The Skin Map. Once again, Kit and Mina travel through different times and worlds via Ley Line travel.  It is not only time travel, "Rather, Kit and companty are bouncing around a multidimensional universe in the equivalent of a helicopter that can travel in any of a thousand different directions. Ane if that hypothetical helicopter is a vehicle that can also zoom off into hidden dimensions and lands in any possible alternate world - with a dose of time slippage thrown in for good measure - then we have..." the situation described in this series of books.  It kind of reminds me of :  "There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man it is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity it is the middle ground between light and shadow between science and superstition and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge this is the dimension of imagination it is an area which we call- the Twilight Zone."
That being said, Kit, Mina and company travel the ley lines searching for the mysterious skin map and for a way to decipher it while trying to evade Burleigh and his goons.  Kit lands for an extended stay in the stone age with some cave men, which is quite interesting.  I found this book a bit disjointed and confusing, but still a good story and concept and if you liked the first book, I think you will enjoy this second one as well.
