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.

    "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.

    Story
    "A good continuce"

    This is a pickup on the Dune story line after Chapter House. You can read this story without going through and reading all the books written Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. In the other books they go through the history of all the houses and past characters. I enjoyed finding out what was left out of the other books. The authors do incorporate information from the other stories, and they explain them in this book, so again reading them is not required. Do remember that this book was suppose to be combined with the next book into one, so it will leave you hanging and wanting more.

    "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.

    Story
    "Hunters of Dune"
    Would you listen to Hunters of Dune again? Why?

    As it tied into the series, yes. It helps to understand what happened in some of the other books


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It held my interest thru out.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the whole series, from the first one, to really understand and enjoy Dune.

    Good writing team, great story. Dune series has come a long way from just the Baron/Paul tiff.

    "absolutely amazing"

    Great book Brian and Kevin do a great job of picking up the story were it left off with tons of intrigue and new ideas this book is as good as any that Frank himself has written. Dont believe the negative check it out for yourself. I just went through the whole series (that Frank wrote) and now i am finishing it with the 2 Brian wrote. Dont believe the negative hype if your a Dune fan this is a MUST have.

    "Excellent continuation"

    The answers we've been looking forward to. If you are a Dune fan and always wondered what happened, then this book will start tying all the strings in vast Dune universe together. I can't wait to listen to the final book.
