This book was written and featured a lot of intrigue and action. By the second book of the trilogy, the reader would have got used to the minotaurs being the central characters and it is interesting to see how the story develops. An entertaining time is had by all!

An excellent read from start to finish this take the trilogy on from where it left off and improves on the first book which was not his best work. This book definetly is back to his minotaur best. The one thing I will critises is the need for an orge language, who cares about made up words english will do as this did get very annoying at times as its a hes say you say conversation in jiberish so lets hope no more orge speak in book three!!!

Tides of Blood 12 Jan. 2006
By Flash_wolf - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Tides of Blood - By Richard A. Knaak

Wizards of the Coast, April 1st 2005, 384 pages


This is the second book of a trilogy about the Minotaur race during the war of the souls. This trilogy belongs to the book series called Dragonlance.

This book takes place in the minotaur empire and in the ogre kingdom. The time is during the war of souls. The gods have left Krynn and magic is nothing more than a shallow husk. Rumors have been spread that the undead can no longer pass on to the after life and now they wander the planet draining people who try to use magic. During this trying time, minotaur emperor Hotak has made a pact with their ancient enemies, the ogres to try to take over the continent of Ansalon. He has also forged a pact with the mysterious Mina and her growing army to try to take over the legendary home of the elves, Silvanesti. But rebels and a growing darkness plague Hotak's kingdom right under his muzzle. As the escaped slave Faros begins to build an army of fugitives in the land of the ogres, Hotak's wife, Nephera continues to be consumed by an unholy darkness. The main characters of this story are Hotak, the throne usurper; Faros, nephew of the late emperor Chot; Nephera, wife of the emperor Hotak and Hotak's two sons, Bastion and Ardnor.

This is an exciting, intriguing book that will have you begging for more. Knaak makes this second book a nonstop thriller of rebellion, love, war and suspicion. His first book in the trilogy, Night of Blood, Knaak had built a powerful story and he continues it in this second installment. I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed his previous one, Nights of Blood. If you are a fan of fantasy and Dragonlance, I highly urge you to go and pick up Knaak's trilogy today.

High action fantasy 23 Mar. 2010
By Mitch Mckillip - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As I often am when I go back to the Dragonlance series, I came into this book looking for a fun, quick read. I had just finished the Chinese classic "A Journey to the West" which though good, was very drawn out in my opinion.

I had read a few from Mr. Knaack before and I knew his style. Although he will never win awards he writes a great book, with just enough detail and plot to keep your interest. But his specialty is in action, and keeping the plot moving at breakneck speed. It worked, I completed this book in 4 days.

The Minotaur species in Dragonlance is very good for Knaack's strengths. They see most things in black and white, and are very militant. But the ruling class keeps you interested in the behind the scenes political intrigue. While you will never be identifying with characters, or getting teary eyed with their struggles, they have just enough personality to pull your interest.

If you're a militant fantasy connoisseur, then skip it. But if you want a great story with intense action, this will be a great read for you. The whole trilogy is done in just over 1000 pages, yet still feels epic. I gave it a 5 not comparing it to other great works in the genre, but for succeeding in what it was trying to do. Like I said I read it in 4 days despite having a full time job, and a busy weekend. That's saying something.
Very Good Bridge Novel 19 Aug. 2005
By Andy Gray - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Tides of Blood is the second book in the Dragonlance: The Minotaur Wars, by Richard Knaak. The first book in this trilogy was dark by Dragonlance standards and this novel is no different. I am enjoying the 'darkerside' of Krynn if you will. It seems the books that have been released as of late in the Dragonlance world have been sub-par to say the least. With his first novel in this trilogy Night of Blood, Knaak broke that mold and delivered a very solid book. This second book keeps that theme going and is well written and well thought out story.

I have been a fan of Knaak's since I read Kaz the Minotaur and he doesn't disappoint here. It is evident that Knaak has planned out this story in great detail and taken the time to think everything through as far as what he would like to happen.

As far as the story there is a good deal of action mixed in with the politics of the Minotaur empire. For a Dragonlance novel I was a little surprised of the politics as that's not usual for DL novels.

Overall this is a very solid second book and one that will surely carry right into the final book in the trilogy.
Great Second Book 27 Mar. 2006
By Benjamin A. Jacobson - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you like battles and internal strife, this is the book for you. The second book in the minotaur series has the minotaurs already in the midst of invading Ansalon. Faros is trying to escape from imprisonment and exact revenge up his oppressors. Also, to show the unity in the ogre nations should make this worrisome for other races of Ansalon also. A major shake-up of the eastern side of the continent is going to affect the entire continent soon enough....
good stuff 5 Jun. 2013

I've always enjoyed Knaak's writing. I thought the story fit nicely in with everything else that was transpiring in krynn at the time. It was fascinating to know what was going on at points that were only vaguely described in the series about Mina. For what it's worth, I thought this was a well written series that started out slowly but really built to a mighty creshendo.
