Publisher's Summary

From Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, Dune: The Lady of Caladan is a brand new novel in the internationally best-selling Dune series.

Lady Jessica, mother of Paul, and consort to Leto Atredies. The choices she made shaped an empire, but first the Lady of Caladan must reckon with her own betrayal of the Bene Gesserit. She has already betrayed her ancient order, but now she must decide if her loyalty to the Sisterhood is more important than the love of her own family.

Meanwhile, events in the greater empire are accelerating beyond the control of even the Reverend Mother, and Lady Jessica's family is on a collision course with destiny.

Featured Article: Dune (2021)—Book vs. Movie


The very first book to win the Nebula Award, Frank Herbert's Dune has long been a fixture of the sci-fi world. It's no surprise, then, that yet another filmmaker has taken a stab at bringing this classic to the screen. The latest effort, by Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve, captures the first half of the epic novel. The reviews have been generally positive, with critics and audiences blown away by the scale and sheer ambition of the adaptation. Overall, Villeneuve's 2021 adaptation of Herbert's sci-fi classic is quite faithful. But in what small ways does the film differ from the book?

Litany of a Never-Ending Story

Dune is the classic.
Dune is the standard against which all sequels pale.
I will face this fact.
I will permit myself to accept that the original novel will not be equaled.
And when I have accepted this, I will turn to the prequels and embrace the saga.
Where these stories go, there is still much enjoyment. I will remain a fan.

A DISCONNECT

I love what Brian and Kevin have accomplished with the prequels of Dune. But!!! These new prequels seem to have disconnects regarding the characters especially Jessica and Leto. Don't get me wrong. This new series is very engaging but Jessica and Leto at odds with each other is hard to believe! It does not connect with original Dune nor the earlier prequels. It's like reading a what if.

Scott Brick A+++++++

Scott Brick is my all time favorite reader, but the ending of this book.
The story just stopped, like the authors just gave up or .......
It surly seems cheesy to stop in the middle of the action. Like anybody that is a
Dune fan won't buy the next one without an obvious hook to get you to buy it.
I still love Dune and will buy the next one, but ..... come on.

Another of the same stories as the House Trilogy.

I love the fact that the Dune Universe is always expanding, however it seems that these stories were the same as the ones in the House Books. Nothing is solved, nothing has changed about the characters. Just another story brilliantly told by Scott Brick.

Something wrong with audio

Love Scott Brick, however something was wrong with the sound quality of this audio. It was very noticeable first few hours and then got better but then came and went through the audio. There were times it didn’t sound like the real narrator.
Otherwise I loved this story just as I have enjoyed all the Dune series.

An ok story, I think the authors are tired

Foreshadowing so heavy it was "fore-blackouting" it makes the story overly predictable.

Scott Brick's performance was mostly perfect though. There is one or two production errors in the reading that weren't edited out though.

More on the lead up to Dune

A good character driven story - no big surprises so far (it #2 of a Trilogy) but a good story none the less - Scott Bricks performance is great!

Liked the way it ties the other books together.

Looks like the Emporium is knee deep in poo and heading for a sinkhole. Just proves no one needs this much power.
