Picking up with Edmund and Pond after their adventures in Riddle in Stone was as easy as relaxing into a comfortable armchair at the end of a hard day. That is to say it was effortless.

Edmund remains the most abused of main characters as talented author, Robert Evert puts him repeatedly into challenging circumstances with a plethora of adversaries. Edmund is tested again and again physically, mentally, magically and emotionally. And as the rapt reader you'll be put through the wringer right along side him!

After all he's been through Edmund knows any who chose to stand by his side risk their life to do so. But such is his likability that it's a price all seem willing to pay. And as merciless as it may seem, Robert Evert sets out to prove Edmund's point with both new characters and those established from Riddle in Stone falling before Edmund's pursuers.

What surprised me about this story was not only how easy it was to get back into after the months and books that have passed since reading Riddle in Stone , but also how easy it was to read. Pages passed so quickly, each one packed to bursting, that I'd finished it before I even realised.

If you're going to read Betrayal in the Highlands it's strongly recommend you read Riddle in Stone first. It will set you up beautifully for what's to come and allow you to build your connection to all the fantastic characters you'll meet within.

With another book yet to come, just as you relax and think Edmund's finally going to be allowed the peace he seeks, Betrayal in the Highlands ends on an explosive discovery, ensuring you'll be champing at the bit to join Edmund on the next big adventure.

Very much a continuation of the first book not a stand alone story. If I'm honest I was disappointed with this book. That's more to do with book 1 setting expectations so high and less to do with any failings in book 2. I think I was expecting New revelations and development of the hero's powers before a crescendo of action that brings this section of the story to an end.. what was,delivered was a book which felt more like a scene setting for a future book than a story in its self. A bit like one of those American dramas like lost that roles one forever. I have no idea what the introduction of the character fatty what ever his name was. He seems to have turned up been a hinderence and then been written out. Eds idea of managing a state seems to be some sort of crude version of communism. I think he'd be killed or disposed by the populace who'd take his money. Or just seen as weak and killed by a bully that would then rule the state as a dictator. I might read book 3 just to see how on earth the author stabilizes the plot enough to create an ending.

After being gifted book 1 by the author, in Nov 2013. At the time, I loved it, but books 2 and 3 weren't available. Then, when they were, I didn't have the time to read them.

I re-read book 1 last week, just finished book 2 and I'm ready to delve straight into book 3 tonight.

First off, I love that the story picks up straight from the end of book 1. Riddle of Stone left us wondering where the story could go, what would happen and who would survive into the next book.

CHARACTER

I absolutely love Edmund, but that's nothing new. He and Pond are incredible characters and there's such a bromance going on between them that is adorable, but also shows their character even more. They're stronger together, always have each other's back and I love the fact that they're still together, after everything they'd been through in the pits.

As for the new characters, Abby is a great addition. Feisty and independent, I really like that she's strong, but has moments of vulnerability and a hidden past that will be interesting to explore in book 3. I just know there's more to the story of her relationship with her father than she's letting on. But that's the genius of Robert Evert's writing. You know there's more to come, but you don't mind waiting for it, because you know it's going to be exciting and incredible.

I sadly miss Thorax, who was a great character, even though she was a dog.

In order to write this review, I re-read Riddle in Stone and then read again Betrayal in the Highlands.
You can really feel the difference in the writing. In Betrayal in the Highlands, you can see that Robert Evrett has found his pace and that the hesitancy in his writing is gone.
In this second part, Edmund comes into his own. As a character, he does remind me of a certain Bilbo Baggins but a romantic one. Our Edmund would love to find someone who would love him but unfortunately, it is not to be. Not only has he got Goblin hunters after him, he also has a trio of evil magicians (cleverly introduced to us in Riddle in Stone) who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the secret he carries in his head. Therefore anyone closed to him is in danger. Which does not prevent Pond, his former pit dweller mate and mentor in the goblins' mines to stick with him and to become, if I can say so, his sidekick. We have a very deep friendship, an unsaid brotherhood bond that nothing can break between two unlikely heroes and adventurers. Not even Abby's pretty face. Yes, the author has introduced us to a new central character, Abigail. I like her a lot. Not a silly pretty face but a runaway would be adventuress, clever, intuitive and with a big heart, loyal to a fault but as impulsive as Becky, Edmund's fifty pounds puppy. Becky is also a central character and it is interesting to see how her role develops in the story.
As for Molly and Norb, well, after their betrayal, I could not find it in my heart to feel sorry for them. I loved the way Abby 'persuaded' Molly to reveal the extent of her treachery and how she used Edmund's love for her.
Betrayal in the Highlands is a solid fantasy book. But is my opnion that you have to read first Riddle in Stone.
