Frank Herbert's Dune ended with Paul Muad’Dib in control of the planet Dune. Herbert’s next Dune book, Dune Messiah, picked up the story several years later after Paul’s armies had conquered the galaxy. But what happened between Dune and Dune Messiah? How did Paul create his empire and become the Messiah? Following in the footsteps of Frank Herbert, New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are answering these questions in Paul of Dune.

The Muad’Dib’s jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies--those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands. . . .

And Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders: Am I going mad?

    " This book was not written by the original author of the Dune series but rather by his son. The book is meant to tell the story of the time in between the first and second books of the Dune Chronicles. Brian Herbert's writing style was much more modern than his father's, which I suppose makes sense. This had its benefits because it was more explanatory and read more like other modern novels I have enjoyed. But it also took something away from the book. The Dune Chronicles were written as though the person reading it was a member of the society and knew the culture. It did not spoon-feed you background information, giving the story a feeling of disconnect from the modern world, which gives the reader more of a sense of peeking into a world he does not entirely understand. "

    " I picked this up for something light to read, but didn't really expect to much of it. I was pleasantly surprised and found the book as enjoyable to read as the ones written by Frank Hebert. "

    " Paul of Dune was a GREAT way to tie in some of the prequels for the Dune series with Paul's life between the first and second Dune titles. "

    " Heroes of Dune is ok, but does not add too much to the saga "
