The Caladan Trilogy

New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert, the son of Frank Herbert, and Kevin J. Anderson present The Caladan Trilogy, a brand new prequel series to the timeless Dune novels.

Duke Leto Atreides is a name of legend. Duke of Caladan and father to Paul, this is the story of how Leto discovered a grand plot to betray the Imperium, and how he rose to prominence in the eyes of the Emperor. Dune: The Duke of Caladan is the first book in a prequel trilogy (including Dune: The Lady of Caladan, Dune: The Heir of Caladan) that pulls the curtain back on an iconic world.

“The saga continues to embroider the original works with intelligence and imagination and also a stronger role for women.”     —Booklist on Mentats of Dune
