The Muad'Dib's jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies - those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands. Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control?

Publisher's Summary

Frank Herbert's Dune ended with Paul Muad'Dib in control of the planet Dune. Herbert's next Dune book, Dune Messiah, picked up the story several years later, after Paul's armies had conquered the galaxy. But what happened between Dune and Dune Messiah? How did Paul create his empire and become the Messiah? Following in the footsteps of Frank Herbert, New York Times best-selling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are answering these questions in Paul of Dune.

The Muad'Dib's jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies - those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands.

And Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders, "Am I going mad?"

Paul of Dune is a novel everyone will want to read and no one will be able to forget.

    "Better than most of the original series"

    I was skeptical of this series at first and debated listening to one. Dune was one of the best books I've ever read but the subsequent volumes lost something. Paul of Dune comes very close to the original Dune. Perhaps its the characters and the connection to the first book, but regardless I was more enthralled in this story than most of the original series.

    "Could Paul have forseen this narrator?"

    When it comes to audiobooks, there are two essential parts - first, that the book be a good book; and second, that the narrator is a good one. I made the mistake of buying this on the merits of the book, and didn't check the narrator.
    [p]
    The narrator, Scott Brick, is dreadful. After I bought this, I lasted about 5 minutes before his singsong reading with dramatic emphasis on words that don't deserve it drove me to distraction. Then I realized that I had bought one of his readings before (Darwin's Children - also lousy). The narrator disappointed several of that recording's reviewers, several describing his reading as overly melodramatic on every sentence. Every. Single. Sentence.
    [p]
    Brick has 393 books listed on Audible, and it seems to me that this is part of the problem. I suspect that every read he does is the first time he has seen the text, and although he is trying to do a dramatic reading, he doesn't know how the current sentence is going to end, let alone how it connects to the next one. I think he's reading the words, but not the story. It's like watching a soap opera with the actors reading off teleprompters because the scripts weren't ready for them to read ahead of time.
    [p]
    It's a shame, really. I learned my lesson on this one and now check the narrator and listen to the sample on every book I am considering. It means, however, that some very good-sounding books (e.g., the Quantum Thief) are now ruined for audio listening - I doubt very much that Audible will re-record them with a competent reader. I do know that were I an author, I would be devastated to find out he was reading my book.
