Publisher's Summary

Based directly on Frank Herbert's final outline, which lay hidden in a safe-deposit box for a decade, Hunters of Dune will finally answer the urgent questions Dune fans have been debating for two decades.

At the end of Frank Herbert's final novel, Chapterhouse: Dune, a ship carrying a crew of refugees escapes into the uncharted galaxy, fleeing from a terrifying, mysterious Enemy. Hunters of Dune is the exotic odyssey of the crew as it is forced to elude the diabolical traps set by the ferocious, unknown Enemy. To strengthen their forces, the fugitives have used genetic technology to revive key figures from Dune's past, including Paul Muad'Dib and Lady Jessica, so their special talents will challenge those thrown at them.

Failure is unthinkable. Not only is their survival at stake, but they hold the fate of the entire human race in their hands.

    "Nice sequel. Characters could be better."

    I've read and listened to some books from the Dune series by Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson before.

    I know they say I shouldn't compare their books to the Dune books by Frank Herbert, but I can't help to.

    The story is exciting and their recapitulation of what happened in the prequels helped me to understand the prequels a little better actually. Some exiting things happen in Hunters of Dune, which I won't spoil.

    But what I miss is depth of the characters. They are often too rational and humans aren't that rational all that often. I know I'm not. That's why the characters are less interesting. And I think the writers don't seem to grasp that.

    "Hunters of Dune"

    That was a long time for a cliff-hanger (Chapterhouse Dune). Hunters is wonderful, and I've enjoyed the prequels. I'm glad the Dune saga can continue.

    "I Liked It"

    I actually like the Herbert/Anderson versions of Dune a little better than the originals. Starting with God Emperor of Dune, the story got a little too weird. I don't really like the whole Ghola thing, but we seem to be stuck with it. At least we have more Gholas than just the know-it-all Duncan Idaho ghola.

    I like all of Scott Brick's readings and look for books he has read. His interpretation usually makes the story better.

    The Dune series for me is similar to the Foundation trilogy. The subsequent prequels and sequels made the original trilogy make more sense and be more readable.

    Looking forward to the final book in the series. Hopefully the bad guys will be beaten once and for all.
