Editorial Reviews

Review

Critical Acclaim for the Dune novels of Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

“[Fans] rejoice in this chance to return to one of science fiction’s most appealing futures.”—The New York Times Book Review on Dune: House Atreides

“A spirited and entertaining adventure . . . . The real pleasure here comes from watching the authors lay out the plot threads that will converge in Dune.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer on Dune: House Atreides

“The second Dune series is proving to be more accessible and just as entertaining as the original.”—The Oregonian on Dune: House Harkonnen

“Extraordinarily well-developed and continually fascinating.”—Kirkus Reviews on Dune: House Harkonnen

“Anderson and Herbert draw emotional power from every character to fuel the complex political tale they tell.”—Booklist on Dune: House Corrino

“This is a good, steady, enjoyable tale...Fans who will be sorry to see the end of this series will be heartened by the hint that the Dune saga is far from over.”—Publishers Weekly on Dune: House Corrino

From Publishers Weekly

The sands of time have not diminished the impact Dune has had on the evolution of SF, and this new prequel by Frank Herbert's son and bestseller Anderson, following 2001's Dune: House Corrino (the concluding volume of their "House" trilogy), offers the kind of intricate plotting and philosophical musings that would make the elder Herbert proud. Reaching back into the beginnings of Arrakis, the authors show us Selim, a boy cast out by his tribe who discovers how to ride the fearsome giant sandworms. Selim tastes and learns the visionary power of the magical spice, melange, and how the future of Arrakis hinges on who controls it. At the same time, on planets far removed from the desolate dunes of Arrakis, others are involved in a Great Revolt. Free League World humans, led by Tercero Xavier Harkonnen and Serena Butler of Salusa Secundus, battle Omnius, a computer "evermind" intent on extending its dominion. The ominous Omnius seeks to conquer all planets not yet incorporated into his Synchronized Worlds system with the help of servile robotic extensions and colleagues, including Erasmus, a Thinking Machine "Hannibal Lecter" whose whimsical Mr. Spock-ish meditations enliven the proceedings immeasurably. Throughout, key revelations regarding the Zensunni Wanderers and their fight for freedom and other historical Dune elements lend an air of discovery to this fast-paced tale.
