Review

Praise for The Winds of Dune:

“Fill[s] in the gaps between the late Frank Herbert's classic Dune and its sequels Dune Messiah and Children 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)

"Delivers solid action and will certainly satisfy."
--Booklist

“This satisfying tale from Herbert’s son and Anderson follows Jessica, the mother of galactic emperor Paul Atreides. . . .  Fans of the original Dune series will love seeing familiar characters, and the narrative voice smoothly evokes the elder Herbert’s style.”
--Publishers Weekly

"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

"The Winds of Dune is filled with the same psychological complexities that were a hallmark of Frank Herbert’s books. It twists and turns on matters of trust, loyalty and the meaning of honor. Familiar characters are brought back to life with poignant clarity and the suspense and tension never let up. Even knowing what comes next in Children of Dune, I was hooked by this tale and enjoyed it immensely. It is a worthy addition to the Dune saga."

Praise for the bestselling novel, Paul of Dune:

From Publishers Weekly

Set immediately after Frank Herbert's Dune Messiah (1969), this satisfying tale from Herbert's son and Anderson (Paul of Dune) follows Jessica, the mother of galactic emperor Paul Atreides, as she returns to the desert planet Dune for her son's funeral. Paul's suicide after his mistress's childbed death leaves his sister, the insane and brutal Alia, as regent for his twin children. Alia releases Princess Irulan, Paul's wife and biographer, from house arrest on the condition that she present Paul as a god, even as Bronso of Ix circulates contrasting writings focusing on Paul's humanity. Alia, Jessica, Bronso and Irulan can describe aspects of Paul, but no single narrative can capture him. Fans of the original Dune series will love seeing familiar characters, and the narrative voice smoothly evokes the elder Herbert's style. (Aug.)
