Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Amazing conclusion to the Great Schools of Dune"
    Where does Navigators of Dune rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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!


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

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Wow!"

    This may be my favorite Dune book of all time! Action packed and although I knew where things were going I was riveted.

    "I didn't want it to end..."

    Kevin Anderson and Brian Herbert deliver again. I hope we can see more in this early period of the dune universe

    "love the entire dune universe."

    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

    "unbalanced"

    unbalanced. evil too powerful. ending is very unsatisfactory. very disappointing end of this trilogy. lots of repetition explaining character history. unbelievable character's sudden conscience. weakest of all the dune books.

    "still leaves quesyions"

    scott does another great job in the reading. the story is pretty decent but still leaves a question or two. the creation of the new evermind and Erasmus would be a good story also. anyways, always enjoy the dune series.

    " Primer for the uninitiated , filler for the rest"

    Having only watched the movie and never read any of the books, I figured this would be a good start I was not disappointed until I found out this was the third in a series and now I have to wait a month the listen to the other two.

    "Another hit!"

    What can I say, I'm a total fan of the author, narration, and epic saga. This installment is the perfect close and transition to the later books. Contains new and interesting events that add depth and detail to this rich and memorable universe. Well done, bravo! Encore!

    "no reason to do better I guess"

    decent story but reads too much like a soap opera, which is what you expect from these two. performance was great though.
