    1st Dragonlance book I read .and the best edit I can t believe that the author liked my short little review That totally made my day I distinctly remember when I went to the bookstore B Dalton in the old Marquette Mall and purchased this book when I was in 6th or 7th grade It was one of the first real novels I d ever bought for myself, I absolutely loved the story Quite honestly, it is a complete travesty that this book, and to a certain extent the Dragonlance books themselves, have not been made into movies I would love to see this book as a movie

    A very bland heroic fantasy, lacking intrigue or excitement Perhaps I didn t enjoy this simply because I have very limited knowledge of the Dragonlance world Or perhaps I didn t enjoy it because the plot just plodded along from one scene to the next, with nothing outstanding grasping me I disliked how the minotaur and dragons were both very chatty it really destroys the mystery of those creatures but I understand Knaak was attempting to humanize the minotaur.I found Huma s honor to be bordering on idiotic there are times when even honorable people need to kill that which is obviously evil, and Huma seems reluctant to even do that My biggest complaint is how long winded all of our big baddies are They trap Huma on numerous occasions, yet instead of killing him, they deliver speeches I felt like Scott Evil on Austin Powers Kill him already Magius is the only character of any interest Maybe this is a good novel for a 15 year old, but it lacks the intrigue and plot twists and the blurring lines between good and evil that I have grown to love in other fantasy novels.

    A hidden gem, and one of my absolute favorites growing up A ton of books were cranked out under the Dragonlance label in the 90 s, and many of them were barely worth the paper they were printed on But a few were very good, and The Legend of Huma was the best of them Knaak delivers an epic, thrilling fantasy story that s simply an enormous amount of fun 4.5 stars, highly recommended

    I really liked this book, but many scenes were unnecessary, and I felt like the plot was a little too episodic However, the various tasks that Huma accomplishes do eventually accumulate climactically in an important scene It s a good story with a compelling and interesting main character I found Huma a much layered knight than Sturm in the original Dragonlance series However, I enjoy Weis and Hickman s writing better overall They re not the best writers, but I follow their style easily That being said, Knaak did an excellent job of continuing the world building and explication that Weis and Hickman began If I sound ambivalent on many points, it s because it s a three star book for me good but not excellent Still, I can recommend it to high fantasy lovers and to Dragonlance fans.

    An amazing story for a dragon lance novel I read a lot of dragon lance and there was always references to Huma and what he did That s the part that made it good for me It filled in the blanks from parts that read in other stories The only part that lacked for me was that there was a supposed to be a big love story between Huma and his dragon who could take human form , but that was of an after thought in this story I retread this book after reading it the first time Just a good read.

    This was a great exploration of the fabled legend of Huma of the Lance.The lowly Knight who saved the world in the ancient times, so that by the time Sturm Brightblade takes up his own sword, Huma is that world s Lancelot.But Huma isn t Lancelot He is human and frail and weak and terrified He shows that he really IS a legend, because he is unsure and scared and does whatever is needed, no matter the cost.He shows that heroism isn t pretty, but its real.

    Even though this was my third time reading it, I still enjoyed it a lot I think it is probably the best single book in the Dragonlance series, and even those who dont like Dragonlance would enjoy this book Full review here

    The only book I ve ever read twice It holds a special place in my reading life, does this tale of dragon riders, unlikely friendship and good vs evil A special place indeed.

    I forget that the Dragonlance novels are actually very entertaining if a little shallow and predictable The characters are for the most part, straight forward, the only development that surprised me was Rennard s true allegiance It is interesting to finally hear the back story of the most famous hero in the DragonLance universe.
