In Which I Become an Illustrated Woman - The Fatal Tree - Stephen R. Lawhead - CSFF Blog Tour

This is Julie with the CSFF Blog tour!  This month's book is The Fatal Tree by Stephen R. Lawhead (Facebook), the final book in the epic Bright Empires Series.

When we last left our intrepid heroes, they were desperately searching through all possible timelines to try to prevent the complete unraveling and undoing of all creation.

But more importantly, members of the CSFF Blog Tour were given the option to be sent tattoos of symbols such as might have been found on the Skin Map, with the provision that recipients would arrange for a display of said tattoos on flesh.

Hey. Is this thing working?

All right! I am ready to travel!

Now, which way is Sedona...?

Please visit my fellow adventurers on this month's tour!

*In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book. Also free tattoos. The temporary kind.


  1. Thanks for posting photos of the Bright Empires tattoos, I wondered what they looked like. I noticed different symbols at the start of each chapter. Maybe the symbols represent different eras or places?

    1. Thanks! You can see all the tattoos flat at if you haven't already. (One of them came apart as I tried to peel off the backing so that didn't make it onto the skin.)

      Wow, that's an interesting thought! I looked through and Chapters 21 and 29 share symbols. ("In Which a Swallow Grave Must Suffice" and "In Which Wilhelmina Calls in a Debt") 22 and 30 also look to be the same. So I think they just repeat periodically.

  2. Way Cool! If I get some tattoo like yours, can I go with you?

    1. Sure! I will let you know when I find the ley lines.

  3. Hey, is that a Skin Map? Those things are dangerous ;).

    Fun post :).

    1. Polyester sleeve + polyester jacket over sleeve + 3 days = sad tattoos. Actually, the arm ones are holding up almost OK (had to remove the others)...but I am not sure the Egyptians could not save my skin map now. LOL
