Format: Paperback
Truly one of the best novels written for the Dragonlance saga. From his beginnings as a humble Crown Knight fighting for a grip on his place in the world in light of his weak bloodline, Huma Dragonbane struggles to live the ideals of the Solamnic Knighthood. His friendship with Magius, cynical wizard of shifting alliances, and Kaz, a minotaur hounded by prejudice, conspire to bring him down in the eyes of the Knights, but his honour and faith mark him the champion of the Gods of Good themselves. With their gift of the legendary dragonlances, he must battle Takhisis herself to prevent the world from sliding into darkness.
This is heroic fantasy at its absolute best. The story is amazingly told, with an easy flowing narrative which captures the atmosphere of the world perfectly. An absolute must for Dragonlance fans, although it remains one of the few books in the series which can be picked up by a complete newcomer without losing anything.

What astounds me about this novel is the fact that it has received five stars from other reviewers. Naively I bought the novel on the strength of their recommendations only to find this possibly one of the most disappointing Dragonlance novels to date. It is truly awful - Huma, who is mentioned from the opening pages of the Dragonlance saga, is portrayed as some lowly rank soldier who finds the 'knighting' life tough. Knaak seems to have aimed this book at the troubled market of teenage angst and falls spectaculariy on his face. I was astounded by the weak dialogue and the descriptive passages. Huma is a legend in the world of Krynn - I certainly would cede the fact that the story places Huma in a more human light but please; this book is awful. I am assuming most the reviewers have a pubescent affiliation with this stuff. A major disappointment in the Dragonlance canon - Huma's life is a great story - do not look to this novel for that story.
P.S. I find it very disturbing that there has been a raft of reviews of this book by a certain A.customer consistently every 2 days - is this some kind of campaign instigated by the publishers or several teenage kids??
Furthermore, it is really unsettling to see the zealotry of the reviews - the greatest book ever? please, the majortiy of the reviews here are by young kids who do not give an accurate picture of this truly woeful book. Again heed this lone voice - DO NOT BUY!!!

"Legend Of Huma" is the best Dragonlance book I have ever read. The story contains many things like The Knights Of Solamnia, The Oath And Measure, Minotaur culture and so on.If you want something really worths reading, this is what you need!

This book wasn't TOO bad. The writing was alright, although I could see the silver dragon part coming a mile away. There were just too many coinscidence for its own good, I think. Im a big dragonlance fan and I'll read any Dragonlance book,but overall, I think Tracy Hickman and Margeret Weis do a better job. (after all, they're the ones who started the whole thing!).@

I hate to give any book a rating of 1 star, but I couldn't even get through the first sixty pages of this one (and I've read much longer books than this all the way through that were pretty bad)! If you want something to put you to sleep almost instantly, then go ahead and get it. Otherwise... don't bother.

This story was brilliant. A suspenseful fantasy epic which stands out among the books of the DragonLance Saga and indeed in the entire realm of fantasy itself. The multifaceted plot draws the reader in with its intricacy and suspenseful nature. I have read this book several times, and each time, you find something new that you missed before. The lessons interwoven into the plot offer something for the Knighthood of Krynn and for our own world as well. If only they had us read books such as THIS in our school studies....

When I first picked up this book, I was excited. Here was the legend of Huma! But as I got into it, it just wasn't like all the other Dragonlance books I'd read. At least the others were believeable, but this? I just thought that it was very poorly written, the author left out some pretty important stuff, it was totally unrealistic even for fantasy, and they used the word "Huma" way too many times. Don't read it. You'll regret spending your money on it.

Truly a classic in the Dragonlance series, Richard A. Knaak impressed me with his short stories in the Tales series, but his first full length novel is even better, this book is a must for all Dragonlance collectors, especially if they wish to know how it all started! I can't wait to read his other novel "Kaz the Minotaur" as I'm sure that it is going to be just as good.
