Summary

The first title in a new hardcover trilogy from New York Times best-selling author Richard A. Knaak. This direct follow-up to the recent best-selling War of Souls trilogy deals with the minotaurs, a species with which the author is particularly associated in the minds of Dragonlance fans. This series will move the minotaur species to the forefront of the Dragonlance world, and since this is the first hardcover title that deals directly with the world-changing fallout at the end of the War of Souls, it is both a key title for Dragonlance fans and an excellent entry point for new listeners.

Mile wide and inch deep on Minotaur characters

Too many characters in too little time. Even in the last chapters, we are getting our first paragraphs dedicated to certain characters who shortly thereafter are killed. Unlike the author’s previous novels, which provided very rich development yielding personal reader connections to characters like Kaz, This volume was a dizzying bloodbath worthy of its title.

Great listen!

I've been a fan of the Dragonlance books since high school. This is absolutely one of my favorites!

More boring than I imagined

I found it hard to get in to until the very end. Hard names to remember, poorly told story, no real minotaur sounding characters, and never really feeling like I can relate to anyone at the same time. I will not be listening to the rest of this trilogy.

Good narration. Slow story. Gratuitous brutality

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. The story has promise, but turned out to be boring and plodding. The author tries to make the world of the Minotaurs and Ogres compelling, but it wasn't compelling. The descriptions of battles often get into some gruesome details that I felt were gratuitous.

What was most disappointing about Richard A. Knaak’s story?

Plodding story line. It got boring.

Which scene was your favorite?

Nothing really stood out as a "favorite".

Do you think Night of Blood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Any additional comments?

I would like to get my money back on this series. It just wasn't very good.
