DUNE: HOUSE CORRINO

Author(s): 

Fans of Frank Herberts classic DUNE saga will be thrilled with DUNE: HOUSE CORRINO, the stunning conclusion to the new trilogy co-written by bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson.

To assuage his grief over his firstborns murder and against the orders of the Bene Gesserit, Jessica secretly conceives a son for Duke Leto Atriedes. Her rebellion takes her to the palace of the Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV, where the Empress Anirul, a Bene Gesserit of secret rank, foresees danger to Jessicas unborn child and the Bene Gesserit millennia-long breeding program.

Shaddams covert project to manufacture synthetic melange is nearing fruition and he begins a pogrom against the ruling houses of the Landsraad and the Space Guild to disrupt the current spice monopoly.

Messrs. Herbert and Anderson have created an action-packed, fast-paced space drama that builds to an exciting climax. (Oct., 560 pp., $27.95)
