The Winds of Dune (Dune)by Brian Herbert
Synopses & Reviews
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 Dune, The 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.
"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."

Herbert and 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" picks up the saga directly after the events of "Dune," this work begins after the events of "Dune Messiah."
"The Winds of Dune" is filled with the same psychological complexities that were a hallmark of Frank Herbert's books . . . A worthy addition to the Dune saga.--"The Denver Times." Available in a tall Premium Edition.
