My wife bought me this book as a Christmas gift a while ago as it was written by a local author. I finally got around to reading Mineran Influence and to be honest I thought the start was challenging due to the level of description but by chapter 2 I was hooked and couldn't put it down. Read the book in 2 days and luckily have been able to buy book 2 straight away. The characters are clearly well thought out and and the plot moves along at a good pace. Very much looking forward to the arrival of the next one.
