Land of the Minotaurs (Dragonlance Lost Histories, Vol. 4)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Throughout the time of Krynn, one race has remained strong in its pride and beliefs. The minotaurs envision themselves as the children of destiny, the future masters of the world. Despite adversity, defeat, and enslavement, that belief has never wavered.
If there is a foe capable of destroying the minotaurs, it is their own arrogance. Here is told the tale of clan against clan, and of how the exiled champion Kaz must discover the terrible secret of the empire before he and his entire race suffer the disastrous consequences.

The mountains had not done their job very

He obviously was not important enough to have earned the right, though, and for someone like Scurn, that fact had to be bothering him. “Not in here, Captain,” announced one of the pair searching the stables. “Then get outside and help the others. I don’t want you back until you have that little vermin … and don’t kill him! The high priest might
What did that emaciated fiend want at this time of night? Had they finally located the damnable Kaz? The shame of that travesty in the circus still angered the emperor.

He had expected some clue from the mage before this moment; after all, the human had more or less promised.
