New York Times–bestselling author: This follow-up to the popular War of Souls trilogy chronicles the adventures of the minotaurs as they are caught up in chaos and changing destinies
The War of Souls has come to Krynn and touched every land, every race. In the minotaur empire, a terrible coup—the Night of Blood—brings power to a new ruling clan and elevates the usurper General Hotak. He owes his might to a pact forged with the ancient enemies of the horned empire and the aid of his consort. A priestess and gifted necromancer, Hotak's right-hand woman has the ghosts of Krynn under her thumb, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to see their leader's dreams of conquest come to fruition.
Meanwhile, Hotak’s nephew races to find a way to put an end to his uncle’s tyranny, while a general mounts his own rebellion with a rag-tag band of minotaurs. As Krynn devolves further into chaos, the struggle for power and riches spawns the Minotaur Wars—and threatens to sweep across the entire continent of Ansalon.
Bestseller Richard A. Knaak (The Legend of Huma) returns to Krynn, the world of the minotaurs, in Night of Blood: The Minotaur Wars: Volume One, the first in a new Dragonlance trilogy. In a bloody coup that would put any modern dictator to shame, General Hotak rises to power with the aid of his mate, Lady Nephera, high priestess of the Temple of Forerunners. The cliffhanger ending will leave fans eagerly awaiting the next installment. Author tour.
