Stian had a plan…and it worked. He’s out of the library and the books are safe. The only problem: He isn’t alone.
He has Kara with him, and not only that, Hanna has decided to join him on his trip back to the safety of valley. The journey might not go quite as smoothly as Stian had planned, and more complications will certainly arise. However, he’s doing his best to follow a plan that _should _ensure the safety of his family and all the natural Mages. However, in order to carry out that plan, Stian needs more resources and more people…people who can do Magic.
Stian gave his promise to the dying Halvard to keep Kara safe, but can she be trusted? Keeping his skills hidden is not an easy task…even if he could trust his friends. Follow Stian’s quest to find more natural Mages and become a successful merchant.
The Merchant is book three of The Hidden Heritage, a series about courage, betrayal, and love in a magical world of elves and trolls.



Derek Palmer

Derek Palmer is a pseudonym of a writer who has been writing for years - all kind of technical documentation nobody really wants to read and with jargon most of the people do not even try to understand. Doing that kind of work left him a huge surplus of words that could not be used at work. Those words first accumulated and then started to overflow after filling the author's head. When the author was no more able to store those words, he needed to start writing them out; first anonymously to some shady network places, being very careful because of the power of those uncontrollable words. Later on, with some help from other writers he has learned to control some of his idioms, phrases and expressions and as a result there will some books coming out this way.

Regardless of how long it’s been or whether it’s your first time, CJ is always ready and waiting to take you on an audio adventure. At your pleasure.
