Product description

Review

"With their useful fidelity to the vision of the late Frank Herbert, coauthors Herbert (Frank's son) and Anderson (The Winds of Dune) continue to illuminate heretofore hidden areas of the Dune time line. Fully realized characters and intricate plotting will put this title high on fans' to-read list."
--Library Journal Starred review
"Characters and plot are thus beautifully set up, the timing is precise....the universe conceived by Frank Herbert is so vast, complex and fascinating that the magic lingers."
--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for the Dune novels of Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson:
"[A] fun blend of space opera and dynastic soap opera...The narrative is broken into short, jazzy chapters studded with familiar names like Atreides, Harkonnen, and Arrakis that will grab the attention of longtime Dune fans."
--Publishers Weekly on Sisterhood of Dune
"Delivers solid action and will certainly satisfy."
--Booklist on The Winds of Dune
"Fans of the original Dune series will love seeing familiar characters, and the narrative voice smoothly evokes the elder Herbert's style."
--Publishers Weekly on The Winds of Dune
"This sequel to Paul of Dune is an important addition to the Dune chronology and will be in demand by Herbert fans."
--Library Journal, starred review on The Winds of Dune
"Unquestionably, Herbert & Anderson can spin a great yarn; while technically producing a vivid, mystifying universe, filled with characters that are both endearing, and loathsome. I recommend this one highly, but be warned, if this is the first Dune book you are reading, get ready to hit the bookstore, because I promise you, it will not be the last!"
--BookSpotCentral on The Winds of Dune
"Drawing on Frank Herbert's massive body of notes, the coauthors of the new Dune series continue their expansion and illumination of the unexplored pieces of one of the genre's most significant and powerful stories. A priority purchase for libraries of all sizes. Highly recommended."
--Library Journal, starred review on Paul of Dune
"Dune addicts will happily devour Herbert and Anderson's spicy conclusion to their second prequel trilogy."
--Publishers Weekly on Dune: The Battle of Corrin

Excellent book, bit slow to start but the tale picked up pace and detail quite quickly. As always the Dune books never fail to engage, stimulate and entertain.

I want to preface my comments by saying that I think Frank Herbert's original Dune works are the best science fiction ever written. He was able to write political and psychological thrillers while he simultaneously created cultures and worlds as he told his stories. No wasted words, no wasted effort - absolutely masterful writing. His characters were fascinating, captivating, strong personalities with gripping ambitions, hopes and fears. As you read you were pulled into their personalities and experienced the stories through them.

Sadly this book reads like little more than an expository piece of backstory doing nothing more than telling and explaining. The characters read like cardboard cutout characters as their motivations and histories are explained, described, redescribed and retold repeatedly page after page. There is little life in the characters or their worlds other than what was so powerfully written by Frank Herbert in his original books. The characters are lifeless, flat, dull and boring and in short order I noticed I didn't care about them or what happened to them. Don't expect anything even remotely like the original books. I wanted to hear more of Frank's storytelling but you won't find any of it here.

Having been engrossed for years by Franks work, and then enjoying Brian's follow up (especially with the thinking machine wars) I have to say that this book has lost a little something. The continual need to summarise over and over again at the commencement of a chapter storylines from the book you have only just read in the previous chapters, has had me almost tossing it in the bin. The plot and storyline could be so good but the execution is dreadful....I cannot believe anyone with the Herbert bloodline could have written this or supported such poor writing of what could/should be one of the best tales ever leading up to the Birth of Paul!

Rubbish. Couldn't get more than a couple of chapters in to it.
Also had to force my way through the pre-Dune stuff by Kevin. Just doesn't really do what it says on the tin. Just common or garden sci-fi novels that would have been okay on their own but suffer from comparison with Dune.

A very readable and good piece of the jigsaw that helps to construct the "known universe" prior to Frank Herbert's original Dune series. It is admirable as it is a difficult project done to a high degree of fidelity to Herbert senior's vision and ideas. What is missing from Herbert Junior and Anderson's Dune prequels are the insights into characters' psyche and inner thoughts, which were a forte of Herbert senior's Dune series. However, a recommended reading to those who want to expand on the universe of Dune, originally envisaged and articulated by Frank herbert.

This keeps the Dune Saga alive and fills in some of the gaps. Written in the true spirit of his father and making use of his legacy. Still to be reading this saga more than 40 years after I first found 'Dune' is an achievement and introduced my the Science Fiction as a teenager. If you have yet to the read the original books then do so. You won't be sorry.
