The Edinburgh Heir picks up right where The Edinburgh Seer left off. We dive right back into the gang's lively banter, and passion for the revolution. The stakes are higher, the bonds are stronger, and it's just all around more of what you wanted from book 1. Thane and Aini have more growing to do, and they are pushed to their limits. I love when characters are stretched and pulled and have to really examine what they believe and why. The romance between our MC's is a slow burn that speeds my heart, and softens my spirit. I also love how there are more pov's in this book. Some new key players take a step into the light, and it really helps develop things from a new perspective. This story leaves us in a cloud of passion and desire to know how all will come to end. The Edinburgh Heir has been one of my funnest reads in 2018, and I'm dying for the last installment. This author is someone to look out for, I'll be riding her coattails for everything she releases, devouring all the teasers and tid-bits I can learn.

I liked the first book, and this one too- though I felt like they group of friends lost a little bit of their base personalities in this book... They all got really brave really easily. Myles seemed to stay true to himself, but the others felt less unique. That's the only issue I had. Otherwise it was great.
Into a wonderful world of happiness! I felt like I was on a swing going higher and higher. You know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach? The anticipation of what is going to happen next? Amazing wordsmithing! Bravo!

Aini, Thane, Miles and the rebels were in hiding from the Campbell Kingsmen who could attack them with guns blazing if they routed them out. Thane had gone against his own kin when he joined the rebels’ cause and Nathair and his cousin Roderic, the thug, were out to get him. Thane was the heir of the prophecy but he had no idea what he was meant to do. He had a tough job ahead; he had to convince the clan leaders to follow him as the Scottish heir instead of Nathair, and to lead a full blooded rebellion against the King of England to gain Scotland’s independence once again. Thane had the spirits of the Old Kings on his side and they would kill all who stood against him as the rightful heir. However Thane was betrayed by someone he trusted, and was captured by Nathair himself at knife point. The rebellion seemed to be doomed before it even started. Can the rebels go on without the heir? Will Aini be strong enough to see what they started through as the seer, by herself even though she was devastated? This was yet another very thrilling book in this amazing historical fantasy which keeps the readers totally immersed and routing for the rebels and their cause. I know I just have to read book 3 as the suspense is killing me.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe continuing saga of Aini and Thane

The continuing saga of Aini and Thane as they fight for Aini's father and the freedom of Scotland.
The rebellion claims Aini as Macbeth's Seer of prophesy. Will Aini and her friends align themselves with the rebellion? With prophesy seemingly fullfilled, will Scotland begome free of the tyrant King at last?
Thane still hides his true identity from his friends despite his developing love for Aini. How will he walk the line between clan, family and what he believes is right? Can this budding relationship stand if Thane's secret is revealed?
Alisha Klapheke is a very easy “TBR” reader for me - as everything she produces inevitably becomes a To Be Read by me as it’s oh so very very good. Her Edinburgh Seer series is a perfect example of why, with its perfect description of an alternate history, modern Scotland where magic works. In its book 2, The Edinburgh Heir, the story picks up where it left off in the first book and then goes on a wild ride. Aini and Thane are fantastic lead characters. Fate may indeed have chosen them, but their path is not an easy one at all. For the reader, however, it’s pure reading pleasure.
