Based directly on Frank Herbert's final outline, which lay hidden in a safe-deposit box for a decade, Hunters of Dune will finally answer the urgent questions Dune fans have been debating for two decades.

At the end of Frank Herbert's final novel, Chapterhouse: Dune, a ship carrying a crew of refugees escapes into the uncharted galaxy, fleeing from a terrifying, mysterious Enemy. Hunters of Dune is the exotic odyssey of the crew as it is forced to elude the diabolical traps set by the ferocious, unknown Enemy. To strengthen their forces, the fugitives have used genetic technology to revive key figures from Dune's past, including Paul Muad'Dib and Lady Jessica, so their special talents will challenge those thrown at them.

Failure is unthinkable. Not only is their survival at stake, but they hold the fate of the entire human race in their hands.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 2/16/2014

    " Three and a half stars would be great for this book. I like books from the world of Dune written by Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert, cause the characters are clearly shown from first appearance in the book til the end - no costant appearing and disappearing without a reason. I know that maybe the real Dune fans will chase with something sharp, but I like Brian Herbert's Dune books more than those written by his father. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara Best | 2/13/2014

    " Like all of the Dune books, this is a re-hash of the others -- but it was a delight to see all of the old characters again (even as gholas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Myk | 2/9/2014

    " it feels still written by the son BUT the remnants of the father is DAMN COVERING UP FOR EVERYTHING! a great thriller for the ending of one of the GREATEST SCI FIs EVER "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marita | 1/29/2014

    " Really I did like it better than just Ok, but since I have given some of Franks books only 3 stars I cannot give this more than that. It is so much more light weight and action oriented than the originals. I found this to be very repetitive and predictable wich Frank never was or if Frank's caracters were perdictable they were doing things for unpredictable reasons. This book did not get much into reasoning things out at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrewcharles420 | 1/25/2014

    " Just not the same as the original books, but nice to see the further direction of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vincent Darlage | 1/18/2014

    " This was a good book. I wonder how closely this follows Herbert's outline and notes, as the identity of the two mysterious beings at the end of Chapterhouse doesn't quite seem to mesh. Still, I enjoyed this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannot667 | 1/13/2014

    " kind of a guilty pleasure. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristen | 1/10/2014

    " This book is necessary to find out what happens after Frank Herbert's last Dune book, but the interior life that makes the characters really work in his books is just gone in his son's rendition. I'll read the next one, too, but I'm not looking forward to it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 12/10/2013

    " Good read. Follows nicely from Dune Chapterhouse and pulls in story arcs from other Dune novels. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rick Gingrich | 10/30/2013

    " Didn't think it was faithful to the original story, more like fan fiction than the completion of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 5/9/2013

    " Good sequel to Frank Herbert's work. I can't get enough Dune. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin | 3/20/2013

    " An ok story for those of us who cannot get enough of Dune. Without reading any of the other novels in the series, new readers will no doubt be confused and not like the story. I just hope Sandworms of Dune does not dissapoint! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Haws | 12/1/2011

    " Probably not as good as the Butlerian Jihad, but probably as good as some of his dad's later work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yolanda Sanchez | 8/16/2011

    " The books were much better written by Frank Herbert than the following books have been by his son, but this book and the sequel Sandworms of Dune are a decent wrap up to the original series. Frank Herbert died before finishing his series, and having these books as resolution are pretty satisfying. "

    " all they did was clone eveyone from the original books "

    " Enjoyed this story, but not as much as Frank Herbert's original stories. Seems to do a little more justice to the original story line. "

    " Duncan and Sheeana make their escape in the no-ship with a collection of dissidents, and begin decades of wandering universes looking for a new home. Back at Chapterhouse, Mother Superior attempts to consolidate the Old Empire to face the Enemy when they arrive. "
