Well, I read Huma (already reviewed) and I freaking LOVED Huma. That was such a story, powerful and human. Realistic in the sense that it draws away the gilding and legend, and presents you with a young, scared, doubting man who has to overcome so much. And never waver even in the face of stupidly bad odds.

So when Kaz is released, I snatch it right up. Kaz was a wonderful character; truly, he was Huma's Gamgee. He pushed when he had to, and he never left Huma's side. Not even at the end. And lik
KAZ THE MINOTAUR picks up where The Legend of Huma ends with Kaz as the main character. The great Minotaur has supposedly been betrayed by the knighthood he has grown to respect. There is a price on his head, and he doesn't know why. In addition he is being pursued by a group of Minotaurs for a dishonorable crime that he supposedly committed during the war. Being chased by many and wondering why, Kaz does the honorable thing and goes to the knighthood and makes a horrifying discovery. The Minota ...more

Kaz, as a minotaur on Krynn, faces multiple challenges of perception; both from his own people and other races. It is the continual test of his honor and commitment to the memory of lost friends which spurs him on in his quest to heal the land and restore the Knights of Solamnia to their past glory following the war of darkness and its ruinous consequences. The power of his heart, more than magic, eddies through this novel.

The wandering minotaur will touch your heart and become an instant favorite. Who doesn't love a good story about a misunderstood whose efforts only lead to the salvation of the world as we know it? But really, Kaz steps up again to save Krynn at great pain to himself, which is expected as a hero of Krynn.
Kaz the minotaur is the sequel of the Legend of Huma. This second book follows the adventure of Kaz after the last dragonwar. Kaz is trying to settle down, but he is forced back into action to confront a familiar evil from the past. More about the Dragonlance Minotaurs series here:

A supporting character in the Legend of Huma becomes so great that he gets his own book - and well deserved!

Kaz the Minotaur was an interesting read and I enjoyed it greatly.

Recommends it for: Those who enjoyed the Legend of Huma.
A fitting sequel to the much appreciated story of Huma! Without a doubt it if the Legend of Huma sparked your interest then this book should be next on your list.
Robyn Alcina
A pretty good follow-up story to The Legend of Huma, revolving around Huma's unlikely friend, Kaz. A minotaur.
John Arnold
Really great to see a minotaur become something other than a mindless beast, great work
Michael Ware
Good epic hero adventure.
buenos recuerdos de mi adolescencia, primera vez que leia una descripcion de un dragon de piedra a manera de artedfacto, buena lectura para principiantes, no pidan mucho, tierna y activa...
Wow, I read this a while back. Must've been 10 or 11. Names are coming back. Kaz, Kelvin, Darius... Anyway, fairly standard-issue fantasy read. Apparently it's the second in a series but works perfectly on its own.
Evan Leach
A fairly disappointing follow-up to the outstanding The Legend of Huma. I thought Knaak struck gold in Huma, but this semi-sequel was just OK. 2.5 stars.
After the end of the first Dragonwar, the renegade minotaur Kaz wanders around and has some adventures. Wouldn’t you know it, a villain of the Dragonwar is still lurking about, threatening to arise and wreak more Dragonwars at any moment…and only Kaz can stop him!
Read this back in high school.

I read this over 14 years ago and the rating reflects my enjoyment at the time.

Classic Dragonlance offshoot story, generic writing. Good time waster.

Recommends it for: fantasy geeks
Was a good continuation of the story started in the Legend of Huma.
Bad. Huma was better. Maybe two good scenes in whole book.
Eh. A mediocre sequel to a really great book.
sequel to LEGEND OF HUMA. good stuff.
