Book Description
Between the end of Frank Herbert's DUNE and his next novel DUNE MESSIAH lies a mystery: how a hero adored by a planet became a tyrant hated by a universe. PAUL OF DUNE begins the story of those twelve fateful years and the wars of the jihad of Paul Muad'Dib. It is an epic of battle and betrayal; of love and idealism; of ambition and intrigue. Above all, it is the story of how Paul Atreides – who achieved absolute power when scarcely more than a boy – changes from an idealist into a dictator who is the prisoner of the bureaucrats and fanatics who surround him. 'Frank Herbert would surely be delighted and proud of this continuation of his vision.' Dean Koontz

Book Description
The exciting first book in a new Dunetrilogy It is 83 years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler established himself as the first Emperor of a new imperium. War hero Vorian Atreides has turned his back on Salusa Secundus, flying off to parts unknown. Abulurd Harkonnen, convicted of cowardice, was sent away to live on gloomy Lankiveil, and his descendants continue to blame Vor for the downfall of their fortunes. Raquella Berto-Anirul has formed the Bene Gesserit School as the first Reverend Mother. Descendants of Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva have built a powerful transportation company using mutated Navigators who fly "spacefolder ships". Gilbertus Albans has established a school on bucolic Lampadas teaching humans to become Mentats. Even so, decades after the defeat of the thinking machines, anti-technology fervor continues to sweep across the human-settled planets, with powerful fanatical groups imposing violent purges… 'Frank Herbert would surely be delighted and proud of this continuation of his vision' DEAN KOONTZ 'In a word, satisfying; all DUNE fans will want to investigate, newcomers will be tempted... it should promote fresh interest in the magnificent original series' Kirkus 'The attendant excitement and myriad revelations not only make this a terrific read in its own right but will inspire readers to turn, or return, to its great predecessor' Publishers Weekly

Book Description
Between the end of Frank Herbert's DUNE and his next novel, DUNE MESSIAH, lies an intriguing mystery: how a hero adored by a planet became a tyrant hated by a universe. Paul Atreides is the man who overthrew a corrupt empire and then launched a terrible jihad across the galaxy, shedding the blood of trillions. The now-hated tyrant, the blind emperor Paul Muad'Dib, has walked off into the endless desert of the planet Arrakis, known as Dune, leaving his turbulent empire without guidance. It's up to his mother Jessica, with her daughter Alia, the brave troubadour-warrior Gurney Halleck, the resurrected Duncan Idaho, the Fremen leader Stilgar, as well as Paul's wife-in-name and biographer, Princess Irulan, to try and hold an empire together even as it tears itself apart from within and without.
