The Sehret Chronicles: The Merchant's Son
by C. F. Barrows
When Sheth Terrem is orphaned by a city riot, he's sent to live with a man he hardly knows, who is unsure of his ability to care for his new charge. But what neither Sheth nor his caretaker knows is that the danger is not over. Rather, it is maintained in the actions of the surviving rioters and of a boy called Siran, who finds keeping his brother's secrets hidden both difficult and perilous.
