The Search for the Map — and the secret behind its cryptic code — intensifies in a quest across time, space, and multiple realities. But what if the true treasure isn’t the map at all . . . what if the map marks something far greater? Something one world cannot contain? Those who desire to unlock that mystery are in a race to possess the secret — for good or evil. Kit Livingstone is mastering the ability to travel across realities 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 is undercover in a Spanish monastery high in the Pyrenees, learning all she can from a monk named Brother Lazarus. Still determined to find Kit, she is beginning to experience a greater destiny than she can fathom. Cassandra Clarke is overseeing an archaeological dig in Arizona when a chance encounter transports her to 1950s Damascus. There, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to the Seekers — the last living remnants of the Zetetic Society who need her help to track down the missing Cosimo Livingstone and his grandson Kit. But there are darker forces at work in the universe whose agents always seem to be one step ahead of the rest — and they’re all desperate to gain the ultimate prize in this treasure hunt where the stakes increase at every turn. At the heart of the mystery lies the Spirit Well. “Lawhead’s intricately plotted, compelling tale continues to demonstrate his mastery of world building.” — Library Journal Download and start listening now!

    " Well, this was an audio book, and it really helped to pass the time while driving to AZ and back. However, I did not realize this was book 3 of a series... so a bit confusing, a lot of people to know, and a REALLY bad ending! (might have to read book 4) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/10/2014

    " I am surprised how much I am looking forward to the next book to find out more about Kit and Mina, as well as Burleigh and the newest plot twists that were added in this 3rd book of the series. "

    " I seem to give 5 stars to all the books I read. What I love about Stephen Lawhead is the intensity of his books. They move so fast. I got to the end of this book (prior to the epilogue) and was quite surprised. Well done! I can't believe I have to wait until Sept 2013!!! "

    " The third book of the Bright Empires series. I'm a time-travel geek, and this series has really pulled me in. I'm not as gung ho about it as Lawhead's King Raven trilogy, but I'm still enjoying it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 11/24/2013

    " Kit and Wilhamina finally get back together. They range all over the ley lines. Many loose ends get tied up.I enjoy this entire series. "

    " I am so absorbed by this series that I can't believe I have to wait 2 more years to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Williams | 5/24/2013

    " Too many characters and timelines. And this may sound weird coming from a guy (it does to me), but not enough romance. I like action but a love interest is good with it. But I will finish the series. "
