Publisher Comments:

With their usual skill, Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson have taken ideas left behind by Frank Herbert and filled them with living characters and a true sense of wonder. Where Paul of Dune picked up the saga directly after the events of DuneThe Winds of Dune begins after the events of Dune Messiah.

Paul has walked off into the sand, blind, and is presumed dead. Jessica and Gurney are on Caladan; Alia is trying to hold the Imperial government together with Duncan; Mohiam dead at the hands of Stilgar; Irulan imprisoned. Pauls former friend, Bronso of Ix, now seems to be leading opposition to the House of Atreides. Herbert and Andersons newest book in this landmark series will concentrate on these characters as well the growing battle between Jessica, and her daughter, Alia.

Review:

"Set immediately after Frank Herbert's Dune Messiah (1969), this satisfying tale from Herbert's son and Anderson (Paul of Dune) follows Jessica, the mother of galactic emperor Paul Atreides, as she returns to the desert planet Dune for her son's funeral. Paul's suicide after his mistress's childbed death leaves his sister, the insane and brutal Alia, as regent for his twin children. Alia releases Princess Irulan, Paul's wife and biographer, from house arrest on the condition that she present Paul as a god, even as Bronso of Ix circulates contrasting writings focusing on Paul's humanity. Alia, Jessica, Bronso and Irulan can describe aspects of Paul, but no single narrative can capture him. Fans of the original Dune series will love seeing familiar characters, and the narrative voice smoothly evokes the elder Herbert's style." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson continue to keep the legacy of the Dune series alive with this additional title to one of the most epic science fiction series. There was definitely questions to fans of the Dune series on the journey of Paul Atreides into the desert of Arrakis and what made him return to push the messiah's agenda. Alia's rise to power and her struggles with her sanity gives further tension to the story line. Most Dune fans at this point want details and now have the opportunity to dwell deeper with this story line. Although the ending already had been set by the original series, it still creates a desire to review what Frank Herbert originally wrote. I would recommend this book to Dune fans.
