“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.”
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."
