At last, the explosive final chapter in The New York Times bestselling trilogy of prequels that ignited listener-and bookseller-passion for Frank Herbert's epic world, DUNE.
With DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson rewarded the legions of fans who thought the final tale of their beloved saga had been told, penning not just a national bestseller, but an instant classic. It was no small feat to follow that success with DUNE: HOUSE HARKONNEN, the rare sequel that was as well received as its predecessor, and was named a New York Times Notable Book.
Now, continuing to work from Frank Herbert's extensive outlines, journals, and notes from brainstorming sessions, these authors have crafted DUNE: HOUSE CORRINO, the third novel in this trilogy of prequels.
Here, fans will see how the rivalry began between Duke Leto of House Atreides and Baron Vladimir of House Harkonnen. The actions that made heros of Duncun Idaho and Gurney Halleck. The events surrounding the birth of Jessica's first child, Paul. And the desperate decision that created one of the universe's most hated tyrants: Padishah Emperor Shaddam Corrino.
