Publisher's Summary

Continuing the events leading up to Frank Herbert's immortal Dune saga, the exciting conclusion to this trilogy finds the cruel Tleilaxu overlords on Ix manufacturing a synthetic form of amal to supplant the spice from Dune. If amal is accepted, Emperor Shaddam IV will gain absolute power. But if the plot of the Imperial House Corrino succeeds, the result may be the end of civilization itself.

What the Critics Say

"[A] fully satisfying conclusion (after Dune: House Atreides and Dune: House Harkonnen) to the authors' "House" trilogy....The inevitable derivative features aside, this is a good, steady, enjoyable tale, and readers who haven't read the first two books can easily follow the plot." (Publishers Weekly)

"[T]his complex and compelling tale of dynastic intrigue and high drama adds a significant chapter to the classic Dune saga. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

    "Fantastic"

    This trilogy, House Attredies, House Harkonnen and House Corrino ranks with The Lord of The Rings trilogy as far as I am concerned.
    A MUST for any DUNE fan.

    "great reader great read. love this series"

    This prequel series has a wonderful narrator who allows you to focus on his words versus getting distracted by voice changes. The series itself is amazing, yet detailed. be prepared to pay attention. this is not a throwaway read. this book is a bit more challenging to finish; nearing the end the pace moves fast.

    Story
    "More Dune? YES PLEASE!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dune: House Corrino to be better than the print version?

    I think Scott Brick has done such an amazing job with the narration of Dune. When I read the regular books now, its in his voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    More details and back story about the characters and what led up to the original Dune series.


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

    He just seems to "know" the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes the losses on Ix were sad.

    Story
    "I didn't think they could do it."

    I've never read Dune so I had no high expectations for these authors to stay true to its original authors storyline. I can't compare the two or judge them for what they did or didn't do. All I know is that I couldn't put this down. I listened to all three almost 75. hours worth of recording by an amazing narrator. I've never read Sci fiction before and I wanted to start with something classic and amazing. A new world built . I can't believe they finished in three books and it rapped up well. It didn't feel rushed at all. I'm ready to jump right into Dune but I'm hesitate because I know it will be the end of it all. But if I continue the Dune series by Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson the large world of Dune will have developed so much in my mind that i ll be ready to see it go.

    Story
    "I finally know the full story!"
    What did you love best about Dune: House Corrino?

    House Corrino finally tells the complete story that leads up to the events in Dune.
    It was interesting to find out just how much of a buffoon Shaddam really was. No wonder he lost his throne to Paul Atreides.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the way Fenring spoke. All of the HMMM's after every other sentence made for some pretty good chuckles from me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Thufir Hawats quick thinking that saved Caladan from invasion; disguising fishing vessels as battleships to frighten off the invaders was brilliant, and spoke to just how useful a mentat could really be.


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

    There was no way I could listen to this book in one sitting. I was afraid I'd miss something if I tried. It's so much more enjoyable to listen to several chapters then ruminate on what happened.

    Story
    "For lovers of the series"
    Any additional comments?

    If you love the Dune universe, you should definitely read this (and the entire "House" trilogy). Kevin Anderson and Brian Herbert are NOT Frank Herbert, and while they continue to produce stories that are worth telling, the style is not the same. The thought provoking themes that seem to be a pervasive undercurrent in Frank Herbert's novels do not seem to come through in the stories written by Kevin and Brian. Also, they have a habit of "filling in" the audience on events that most readers already know. The trilogy is written so that someone who never read Dune could read it and follow along.Regardless, I've read (or listened to) nearly everything the Kevin and Brian have written in the Dune universe. Taken for what the House Trilogy is, the series tells a good story which adds to the original dune series. In fact, having completed House Corrino, I've already started reading the Original Dune again, because I think it has added a lot of depth to Leto I, Jessica, Baron Harkonnen and others. If you take this trilogy for what it is, and understand that it was not written by Frank Herbert, I think anyone who enjoyed Dune would also enjoy this book.

    Now, just to get them to write the other two novels planned in the Heroes of Dune series...

    "Getting tired"

    While the additional information of this space is greatly appreciated, Scott Brick is becoming tired with the series. His voice is wearing out, and he appears to have lost interest.

    Perhaps it is time for a new reader for the Dune series?
