Publisher's Summary

Pursued relentlessly by goblin hunters for the ancient secret he knows, Edmund the stuttering librarian, fights back in the fast-paced sequel to the epic fantasy novel, RIDDLE IN STONE. Edmund’s old, boring life is gone forever. Knowing the answer to a cryptic riddle that, if in the wrong hands, could destroy all of humanity, Edmund is hiding in a sleepy coastal town as far from the frozen mountains of the Undead King as possible. For a moment, he believes he’s finally safe. Then he learns that Molly, the woman he’s loved since childhood, is telling stories about him - stories that will get him and his friends killed. Edmund is forced to embark on a perilous journey home to confront the woman who broke his heart. If he fails, all will be lost.

More fantasy books should be written like this

If you could sum up Betrayal in the Highlands in three words, what would they be?

Unforgettable non-traditional hero

Any additional comments?

Betrayal in the Highland was a great continuation of the first book in the series Riddle in Stone. The hero Edmund definitely grows into his hero shoes in this book, but he is definitely still not your typical cookie cutter hero. The antics of Edmund and his eclectic group of friends kept me interested from start to end.<br/><br/>The right amount of humour, grit, adventure and goblins left me with a book that I did not want to put down. <br/><br/>This series has put Robert Evert into my list of favourite authors along with Kevin Hearne, Brandon Sanderson, Jim Butcher, Peter V Brett, Patrick Rothfuss and Michael J Sullivan. If you enjoy their books, you should check out the Riddle in Stone series.

Easy listen. Enjoyable story.

Would you consider the audio edition of Betrayal in the Highlands to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I love how devoted the characters are to each other.

Any additional comments?

This is not epic fantasy. If you are looking for something deep like George R.R. Martin, Abercrombie, or Jordan, you may be disappointed. If you want a break from heavy politics and war this is a great book. Wonderful story, wonderful characters. It is not a shallow book, it is just not rife with politics and war. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book and the second was just as enjoyable.

Nothing happens

This a poor book. It follows directly after the events in the first book. The first book had faults but the novel story kept me going. In this one nothing really happens - I fell asleep for an hour one night whilst listening and it didn't make much difference. There are various plot holes and all the secondary characters are all idiots.

I will not be bothering with the rest of the series

A poor sequel

What would have made Betrayal in the Highlands better?

The book could have had some substance. The first 20ish chapters are basically an internal monologue whilst Ed tries to repeatedly talk himself into/out of doing something.

Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Evert again?

I'm currenly listening to Blood In Snow (book 3 which isn't much better) as I bough them both together but these will be the last in buy

Would you listen to another book narrated by Fleet Cooper?

possilbly

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Betrayal in the Highlands?

I would have cut half the dialog, which constantly repeats

Any additional comments?

niether this book or bloody in snow are anywhere near the original
