Description


Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson return to the vivid universe of Frank Herbert’s Dune, bringing a vast array of rich and complex characters into conflict to shape the destiny of worlds. . . .

As Shaddam sits at last on the Golden Lion Throne, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen plots against the new Emperor and House Atreides—and against the mysterious Sisterhood of the Bene Gesserit. For Leto Atreides, grown complacent and comfortable as ruler of his House, it is a time of momentous choice: between friendship and duty, safety and destiny. But for the survival of House Atreides, there is just one choice—strive for greatness or be crushed.

He has also written many highly imaginative novels, including The Timeweb Chronicles, the ecological fantasy Ocean (with his wife, Jan), The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma, The Unborn, and The Assassination of Billy Jeeling. His earlier acclaimed novels include The Stolen Gospels, Sudanna, Sudanna, and Sidney’s Comet, as well as Man of Two Worlds (written with his father). Brian Herbert also co-manages the legacy of Frank Herbert and is an executive producer of the new motion picture Dune and the forthcoming TV series Dune: The Sisterhood.

He is best known for his work in the Star Wars, X-Files, Batman, and Superman universes, as well as the space opera The Saga of Seven Suns; the epic fantasy Spine of the Dragon; his humorous Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. series; and two steampunk fantasy adventures, Clockwork Angels and Clockwork Lives, written with legendary Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart.

Praise For…


“Written in a style so close to the original that it is hard to believe Frank Herbert did not direct it through some mysterious genetic link. I can’t wait for the sequel.”Rocky Mountain News
 
“Extraordinarily well-developed and continually fascinating.”Kirkus Reviews
