With their usual skill, Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson have taken ideas left behind by Frank Herbert and filled them with living characters and a true sense of wonder.

Where Paul of Dune picked up the saga directly after the events of Dune, The Winds of Dune begins after the events of Dune Messiah. Paul has walked off into the sand, blind, and is presumed dead. Jessica and Gurney are on Caladan; Alia is trying to hold the Imperial government together with Duncan; Mohiam is dead at the hands of Stilgar; Irulan is imprisoned. Paul's former friend, Bronso of Ix, now seems to be leading opposition to the House of Atreides.

Herbert and Anderson's newest book in this landmark series will concentrate on these characters as well the growing battle between Jessica and her daughter, Alia. Download and start listening now!

    " As always, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson remain faithful while still innovative. An excellent sequel to "Dune Messiah" and another fine addition to my Herbert collection. "

    " I've only had limited exposure to the Dune universe, reading the first three books around the time that the Sci-Fi Channel miniseries was produced (since I have a Thing about reading the books before movies are released.) So I'm not a hardcore Dune fan and have never had much of an interest in reading any of the sequels until this one caught my eye on the NYT bestseller display at my library. Since it chronologically takes place between "Dune Messiah" and "Children of Dune," I didn't feel as if I was breaking the rule of reading-things-out-of-order and figured that my lack of knowledge about the extended universe wouldn't be a problem. Which it wasn't. Even though it's been years since I read the other books (or seen the movies, even), it was fairly easy to pick up the story again, and mostly enjoyable to read. Not epic by any means, but a respectable addition. I was glad to read something from Jessica's point of view. "

    " I liked this book, which takes place in between Dune Messiah and Children of Dune, just after the death of Paul Muad'ib, starting with an envoy arriving on Caladan to tell his mother Jessica. It then goes back in time and develops a new storyline involving offworld adventures of Paul as a young teen (even though purists point out he had never left Caladan in the original series.) "

    " This was painfully hard to get through, but i managed it. "
