Publisher's Summary

This attractive new rerelease of The Legend of Huma debuts a new look for the Heroes series. Each title in the series will reflect the new series design. This title is the only Dragonlance novel not written by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman to hit the New York Times best-seller list.

Only fragments of the account of Huma survived the Cataclysm that broke the world of Krynn. The fullness of his tale has never been told – until now. One man took up the call to defend the world against the Queen of Darkness. He was the first Hero of the Lance, driven by his devotion to the Oath and the Measure and his love for a silver dragon. His life made him a hero. Here is the tale that made him a legend….

    Story
    "Like a fine wine, this book keeps getting better!"

    Having read and enjoyed this book multiple times throughout several stages of my life ( early adolescence through adulthood), I've always thought it would transition well as an audiobook. Not only did it transfer well, but completely shattered my expectations.

    The story itself is timeless. The narration by Richard Topol was amazing. Reminiscent of story tellers of old, Topol breathed life into an already fantastic epic. Topol lent vivd expression to each character. His tone cemented the mood and seamlessly transitioned the story.

    If you enjoy fantasy and a classic epic or incredible verbal acting, then do yourself a favor and give this a listen...you won't be disappointed!

    Story
    "Its a shame. Good book but... Fire this narrator!"

    This was one of my first novels and my first D&D book. I read it back around 1989. It was still pretty good but this narrator was awful. I've never heard any of his other work but I can't believe he still had a job after this one. His reading can put a tweaker to sleep. It's almost as if he tried to make this the most boring story ever told. His narration really kills this version of the book. I won't purchase any more audio books if he's narrating them.

    "good story, adequate performance"

    This is the best of the Dragonlance novels.
    However, the MOST annoying thing the reader can do is attempt to perform something (such as a laugh) that has already been described. Either describe it, OR perform it. Never do both.

    "Predictable plot and story good voice over though"

    I found the book entertaining but let's just say I wouldn't buy a sequel. I would read this book when short on fantasy epics

    "The Legend of Huma"

    Excellent story, I read this when it first came out, and was not disappointed with Richards performance! He did an excellent job of bringing each character to life, making it easy to become immersed in the story!

    Story
    "Not as legendary as I had hoped"
    What would have made The Legend of Huma better?

    More adventuring with Magius & Gweneth. To me, they were just side characters that didn't really help create any impression of any relationship. In another book, Tasselhoff Burfoot popped into a scene where Huma & Magius were running from something and they were startled to see the kender. That, along with other references from other books, gave me the impression that the two had traveled & battled together for a long time, perhaps years and not a few days/weeks, and were dear friends. In this story, Magius was a character that used Huma for his own ends. Yes, he redeemed himself, but his demise was rushed. I had the impression, from other books, that Magius had died in battle because he did not have a weapon after his spells are used up, which is why the mages after that were allowed a weapon. Yes, he ran out of spells, but he was captured and then tortured instead of dying in battle. I had expected the love story with Gweneth to be an epic kind of love where the two are strengthened by their love to fight for Krynn. Huma was rather confused and didn't admit loving her until she was dying. She came off as a confused high school girl instead of a confident dragon.


    What could Richard A. Knaak have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    In the beginning, I think he was a little dull about the characters. He just seemed to be reading, not acting. Either, I grew used to that or he changed his performance later because I didn't notice it any longer.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Legend of Huma?

    The ending of Magius, the ending of Gweneth, and the defeat of Takhesis. They seemed rushed & were disappointing. I think the Legend of Huma might have been better if it had been longer and had developed the characters and their relationships better.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a fan of Dragonlance, but some of the books are disappointing. Those stories are rushed. Almost as if they wanted to make money and didn't care about story or plot as long as they thought it would sell a book. I think they would sell more books if the stories were developed in depth, like in The Chronicles.
