A RIVER THROUGH EARTH, by Raymund Eich
The First Book of the Merchant Cities
From tundra to desert, from prairies to rainforests, the trade routes of Ganelerdos converge at Sparrenfor, Enelarmos, Larpektis, and Torg-ra-Honnet—the Merchant Cities. Fair exchange offers prosperity to the creative and industrious, whether human or elemental… and unearned riches to the ambitious and greedy.
Scorned by his father, mocked by his older brother, Woldirek Hansar rides with a caravan into a desolate wasteland. He emerges with a bold plan to make House Hansar the most prosperous family in the Merchant Cities. A plan to transform the continent of Ganelerdos forever.
But a treacherous rival will do anything to stop Woldirek. Or kill him.
