Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's Navigators of Dune is the climactic finale of the Great Schools of Dune trilogy, set 10,000 years before Frank Herbert's classic Dune.
The story line tells the origins of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood and its breeding program, the human-computer Mentats, and the Navigators (the Spacing Guild), as well as a crucial battle for the future of the human race, in which reason faces off against fanaticism. These events have far-reaching consequences that will set the stage for Dune, millennia later.

Navigators of Dune was one of my top audiobook experiences, partly because this book is an amazing conclusion to the previous two books (Sisterhood of Dune and Mentats of Dune) and partly because I waited so long after multiple cliffhangers and so many storyline threads left unknown until this book! I finished Navigators of Dune which is 18 hours long in less than two days. The way Brian and Kevin wrote this story was masterful and I'm thankful to them for not leaving this trilogy within Dune unwritten!
Scott Brick did a wonderful narration as always, he really brings out the depth of character - of the characters through his voice. Thank you Scott!
Some may be put off by reading prequels in general because it's history but even knowing some general things from the subsequent books, I found the prequels very suspenseful. If you've never read a book from the Dune universe, you're really missing out. Start with the first prequel Dune: The Butlerian Jihad and go in order or start with Dune itself and then read the prequels after. The Dune saga has enriched my life. Thank you Brian and Kevin for continuing where Frank left off from his vaulted notes. Thank you!
I have always loved and cherished the dune universe since reading dune for the first time. Is wonderful to have a bit more insight into the people, events, and forces that shaped it
why is everything in the Duneiverse so damn miserable? Brian Herbert sems incaple of writing a book with out wiping out entire worlds
a happy ending that wasn't drenched in blood would be nice
tired of his voice
Absolutely loved this book! If you ever wondered about the Legend of Vorian Atreides, or the Harrkinans, this book provides the insight. Thank you Herbert and Anderson for this amazing piece of fiction.
Scott (narrator) nails every one of the Dune books he reads. I have consumed every book in the Dune saga. If you love the Dune saga, you will love this audio book.
Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson have really created their own mini dune Universe with these characters and it's exciting to be back in that same universe with these characters over again. I really hope there's another book so we can continue on with these characters that may have developed so well and so we can get the continuing precursor to the Dune universe
