Land of the Minotaurs - Richard A. Knaak

The Lost Histories series probes the historical roots and epic struggles of heretofore little-known peoples of Krynn.

Author Richard A. Knaak explores the land and history of the horned race of minotaurs in this fourth instalment in the series.


Throughout the time of Krynn, one race has remained strong in it's pride and beliefs.  The minotaurs envision themselves as the children of destiny, the future masters of the world.  Despite adversity, defeat and enslavement, that belief has never wavered.
If there is a foe capable of destroying the minotaurs, it is their own arrogance.  Here is told the tale of clan against clan, and how the exiled champion Kaz must discover the terrible secret of the empire before he and his entire race suffer the disastrous consequences...

What I liked about it

* Nostalgia.  this novel, written in 1996, took me back to the setting of Dragonlance from my old around the table and play DnD (2nd edition) games.

What I didn't like about it

* While it is nice to read about the minor, usually not played, races of the setting, this also makes it harder to "live in" the character and the views on the Dragonlance world...

An entertaining novel for a different point of view, but not one I would revisit again after finishing it though...
