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. The fugitives used genetic technology to revive key figures from Dune's past, including Paul Muad'Dib and Lady Jessica, to use their special talents to meet the challenges thrown at them.

Based directly on Frank Herbert's final outline, which lay hidden in two safe-deposit boxes for a decade, Sandworms of Dune will answer the urgent questions Dune fans have been debating for two decades: the origin of the Honored Matres, the tantalizing future of the planet Arrakis, the final revelation of the Kwisatz Haderach, and the resolution to the war between Man and Machine. This breathtaking new audiobook in Frank Herbert's Dune series has enough surprises and plot twists to please even the most demanding listener. Download and start listening now!

    " At last we learn who the old man and woman from Chapterhouse are. Can't wait for the next installment. Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson have done an excellent job carrying out Frank's works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vik | 2/3/2014

    " I actually really liked this book, it was not as good as the original Frank Herbert series and it does appear to blatantly tie in the end of the Dune series with the prequels about the Butlerian his son has written but it was still an engrossing read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Squire | 1/20/2014

    " Another solid effort by the duo. I like these better than the Frank Herbert originals - yes I know, blasphemy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 1/18/2014

    " Pretty good ending book to the Dune series, but not as good as the original dune series or the new prequels. Just a must-read if you're a huge dune fan. Otherwise skip it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don | 1/7/2014

    " The authors did a great job at bringing the Dune saga to an end. Great story and now part of my Dune series ongoing reading and enjoyment. "

    " this is interestig story . i realy enjoyed readig it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liam/Lew | 12/18/2013

    " Pretty similar to Hunters of Dune as far as quality, complaints and plusses. Pretty predictable and a little cheesie, certainly more so than the first 6 in the series. Still after reading 6 glad I read these two to finish the tale. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mark | 12/10/2013

    " This is one of the worst written books I've ever read. It should never have been published. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Josh Zeringue | 10/30/2013

    " I just finished "Sandworms of Dune" and am left feeling empty and angry. It is the absolute worst of all the spinoff books and had a horribly contrived and lame ending. The climax was solved by not one, but two deus ex machina endings. This book made me want to punch Brian Herbert in the butt. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alan | 7/27/2013

    " I got bored with the story being dragged out. So I read the edited hi-lights on wiki, and have moved on to another book. Saddened with the thought as to how much richer, and enjoyable, it would have been from the late Frank Herbert. Ah well not to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrewcharles420 | 7/26/2013

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

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brian McGovern | 7/13/2013

    " Terrible, derivative fiction that is everything the elder Herbert's book isn't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacques | 3/1/2013

    " Book 1 of the conclusion of Dune. Better than the prequels, but still lacking in the refinement of Frank Herbert. It almost want to touch on something great, then it falls back to being just good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 12/25/2012

    " A horrible end to the books I have always cherished. Frank is turning in his grave. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 6/1/2012

    " Great Conclusion to the Series! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yolanda Sanchez | 1/25/2012

    " See my review of Hunters of Dune "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sayomara Vesper | 10/20/2011

    " The song says you can't have it all. The end of the original dune series is remarkable book that it ever came to print after Franks death. I'm glad to have it. It might not move the earth but its a solid book and it does what it needs to do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karan | 10/14/2011

    " This book was written by Brian Herbert to finish the Dune series that his father started. It was a very good book and I enjoyed it. The original series ended rather abruptly leaving a lot of plots unfinished, and this enjoyably did so. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 9/27/2011

    " Fun read! Not quite Frank Herbert but a nice conclusion to the Dune series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vincent Darlage | 9/15/2011

    " Enjoyable book. Not sure I buy into the fact that the weird guys at the end of Chapterhouse: Dune are actually Omnius and Erasmus, but if that is accepted, then this book is pretty darn good. Interesting conclusion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 4/19/2011

    " the "final" installment of the dune series, 8th book i think, was again a good read. alot less build up than the previous book and not so slow. it did a great job at tying up the whole series neatly, although many parts were easy to foretell, it was still thoroughly enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve | 3/14/2011

    " Worst of BH's Dune so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ice | 3/4/2011

    " I enjoyed the last 3 chronicles and the ending "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose | 12/13/2010

    " Ok we all agree he's not his father and how excellent this story would have been if it was written by Frank Herbert... but it still allows us to get some ideas defined originally by Frank. For that I thank you Brian & Kevin "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 11/30/2010

    " Having reached the climactic end of the Dune story, I can at least see how we've come from point A and arrived at point Z - but having arrived at Z, all I can say is, "so what?". In the hands of better writers (like FH) the end could have been something magical and amazing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Screwloose | 4/13/2010

    " While I enjoyed the book and appreciate the series finally having an ending, I found the authors over use of foreshadowing removed most of the surprise of the ending. I knew from about halfway through the previous book how this one would end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 3/19/2010

    " This book was more of what I wanted in the finalization of the pre-saga with Dune. Does not live up to his father's writing, but still enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 3/15/2010

    " This was a good conclusion to the Dune series. The writers of this and Hunters of Dune are not up to the level of Frank Herbert. However as he is unfortunately not with us to finish his saga this was a good attempt to wrap up the original story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vincent | 3/9/2010

    " Enjoyable book. Not sure I buy into the fact that the weird guys at the end of Chapterhouse: Dune are actually Omnius and Erasmus, but if that is accepted, then this book is pretty darn good. Interesting conclusion. "
