Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Dune novels of Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson:

Dune: House Harkonnen

“Succeeds admirably.”
The New York Times Book Review

“The second Dune series is proving to be more accessible and just as entertaining as the original.”
The Oregonian

“Extraordinarily well-developed and continually fascinating.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Entertaining ... page-turning ... Dune fans will enjoy visiting familiar places and encountering familiar characters.”
Contra Costa Times

Dune: House Atreides

“Rich interweaving of politics and plotting made the Dune novels special. And Dune: House Atreides does its predecessors justice.”
USA Today

“A spirited and entertaining adventure ... The real pleasure here comes from watching the authors lay out the plot threads that will converge in Dune.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“[The] authors have woven a web of plots and ideas every bit as complex and compelling as the original Dune novels.”
St. Petersburg Times

“A rousing story.”
New York Post

From Publishers Weekly

In this fully satisfying conclusion (after Dune: House Atreides and Dune: House Harkonnen) to the authors' "House" trilogy, Emperor Shaddam Corrino tries to grasp greater power than any emperor before him and to rule the Million Worlds solely according to his whims. On the captured planet Ix, the research Shaddam directs into the creation of a synthetic spice, amal, that will make him all-powerful spirals out of control, putting the entire civilization at risk. Meanwhile, the enslavers of Ix must contend with threats from exiled Prince Rhombur Vernius, who wishes to rule the planet instead. Tumultuous times are also in store for the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, whose breeding plan has been thrown off course one generation shy of its end. Tension between the houses Atreides and Harkonnen builds to a dramatic showdown. While the intricacy of the first prequel is absent here, so is the filler of the second. Because Herbert and Anderson are extrapolating from someone else's ideas and characters, they tend to overuse catch phrases (like "the Golden Lion throne") from Dune and its sequels with a resulting flatness of language. The inevitable derivative features aside, this is a good, steady, enjoyable tale, and readers who haven't read the first two books can easily follow the plot. A bold, red-and-gold dust jacket, with illustration by Stephen Youll, is a real eye-catcher. Fans who will be sorry to see the end of this series will be heartened by the hint that the Dune saga is far from over.
