The Land of the Minotaurs is a tightly crafted tale that picks up a few years after Kaz the Minotaur. In this book the reader gets to see the history and culture of the Minotaur people. Kaz, of course, is there to lead the way in this adventure. The Minotaur people find themselves in an amazing set of circumstances. The entire nation seems to be arming for war. The arena is as busy as it has ever been deciding matters of honor and justice. It is into this time and land of turmoil that Kaz finds himself pulled. Kaz merely wants to raise his family and live in peace, but circumstances draw him into action. There is something hidden and evil hiding among his people. Kaz makes a discovery that will shake his entire world forever. This is likely the best book of, what is now being called, " The Minotuar Trilogy." The plot twists and turns, and so captures the reader that it is hard to put down. These books are a lot of fun, and this one is a fantastic read. The unexpected ending in worth the entire novel series.

The third adventure of the minotaur warrior Kazaganthi De Orlig, who first came about in the classic "Legend of Huma" and whose story continued in "Kaz the Minotaur". Kaz has established a minotaur community that stands for freedom from the Circle (The Minotaur Government) and The Sons of Sargas (The High Clerics) much to their chagrin. When Kaz's Brother-in-law goes missing in the capital of the minotaur empire he embarks on a search and rescue mission that is more successful than he ever wanted. Accompanied by his kender companion and a strange human child, Kaz faces challenges that could decide the fate of the entire minotaur race. This story is an even further in-depth look at the society and culture of a usually forgotten but extremely interesting race and one of the best characters in the entire DragonLance world. It isn't necessary to have read the previous two books to enjoy this one but I highly recommend it.

If you want to read a history of the minotaur race in Krynn, this book will disappoint you. If you want to read a solid story about Kaz the Minotaur, set after his role in the Dragon War, you'll be pleased by this book.
In a series titled "Lost Histories," one might expect to find out about the origins, the differences among, and...well...the history of the minotaurs. But this book at best hints at a dark secret that has been behind the aggression of the minotaurs. The story mainly revolves around Kaz and his friends and family as they seek to stop an evil plot unfolding in their homeland.
The book is well written and it is a good story. It should appeal to Dragonlance fans, and especially to fans of the previous books about Kaz or about minotaurs. But again, reader beware, this is not an epic history about the race of minotaurs.

Richard A. Knaak has a great novel here. There could have been a bit more character development, but it's not a bad book by any means. This seems like Kaz's own personal "Legend of Huma", so the story is a bit repetitive (why must it always be a silver dragon?). Still, The Land of the Minotaurs combines a bit of magic, mystery, intrigue, and a triple-dose of action to make this a great book which deserves a read or two, although you'd better get Kaz the Minotaur and the Legend of Huma first!

Knaak has another great one here. He sticks with the minotaur Kaz, and his life in the land of the minotaurs. This is an amazing adventure for Kaz. It's another must-read. If you even like fantasy this book, along with Knaak's others will get you hooked on fantasy titles. But I do recomend you read both The Legend Of Huma, and Kaz The Minotaur first, before you read this book.

This book is great in ever way, and a must buy for any fan of any Richard A. Knaak novels. It continues the story of Kaz, my favorite character in Knaak's writings, and it pieces together more of the mysteries of his previous writings. This is a great book to add to any collection of books either by Knaak, or any fantasy book collection.

3rd book with Kaz in it. You learn many things about minotaurs and their society in this book. It was a great read if you like Kaz even though Delbin is STILL in this book and as the gully dwarves. Thats the reason i didnt' give this book 5 stars

This book is for anyone that liked "The Legened of Huma", or "Kaz the Minotaur". This is probably the best book that I have read about minotaurs.
