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.

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
