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)

    I should have said it resembles tea.

    "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?
