    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. 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?

    Story
    Where does Paul of Dune rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great story that ranks 10 on a scale of 1-10 right next to the Last Days of Krypton, also by Kevin J. Anderson. My introduction to Dune was the 1984 movie which always baffled me. Then the revamped mini series a few years ago along with Children of Dune. I would say read Paul of Dune first and then go back to House Atriedes, House Harkonen and finally House Corrino.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Paul of Dune?

    The repercussions of Paul's triumph over Emperor Corrino. The Fremen are an uncontrollable monster in the making. They rampage through the empire solidifying Paul's rule as new emperor. Also his travels back to Calidan and his attempts t re-establish his relationship as Duke. Memories of Gurneys life and his new role as Paul's right hand as he attempts to control the Fremen zealots during water training is very insightful. Also Count Fenring skulking about in the peripheral is also intriguing.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick masterfully weaves the story together, his voice captures the essence of each page of dialogue and overall storytelling.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
