Publisher's Summary

Frank Herbert's Dune ended with Paul Muad'Dib in control of the planet Dune. Herbert's next Dune book, Dune Messiah, picked up the story several years later, after Paul's armies had conquered the galaxy. But what happened between Dune and Dune Messiah? How did Paul create his empire and become the Messiah? Following in the footsteps of Frank Herbert, New York Times best-selling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are answering these questions in Paul of Dune.
The Muad'Dib's jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies - those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands.
And Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders, "Am I going mad?"
Paul of Dune is a novel everyone will want to read and no one will be able to forget.

JUST OK, reluctant 4 stars....

Decently written but unremarkable Dune rehash, meant to pick up where Dune left off, that never manages to engage. No further insights into the vividly drawn characters from Dune, in fact they all seem rather sterile. Paul & company are disenchanted with the direction things have taken, and you will be too. If you're a Dune junkie, you may want to read this. Otherwise, probably wise to skip.

Great Listen but...

This will get slammed by some because it's not Frank Herbert, well guess what? Frank is long gone and there was only one of him.
Brian and Kevin are their own writers and they carry on the Dune experience in their own very exciting fashion, I really like it because while reflecting Franks original concept they really add some great ideas into the original story line. So from some of the purest I think there will be alot of gripes but for the rest of us we shall just enjoy a great book that carries on the amazing world of DUNE!

more amazing dune!

best sci fi series of books ever made and cudos to them for doing more after the death of Frank. may be a bit too informational for any people who aren't diehard fans of the dune universe. once again it's plots withing plots, intrigue and cunning cover to cover. fills many of the gaps left in the other stories, portraying parts of Paul's early life after the legends of dune books and also the time of huge upheaval during the period when Paul is imposing his rule on the planets of the empire and the remaining rebel Noble houses. keep them coming!!!

hardly sci fi

nothing wrong with the narrator.

the story, in fact the whole series of dune is advertised as some epic sci fi classic. so its disappointing that really its just about arab style fighters and jihad and medieval style society. the odd mention of space liners thrown in, but hardly much mention of space. if you wanted game of thrones then you would chose that genre. this was advertised as sci fi. but its not really. don't know if I'll continue with it. too desperate and blood thirsty. very good character development though.
