Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

After two prequel trilogies to the legendary SF epic (the Legends of Dune and Prelude to Dune series), Frank Herbert's son Brian, in collaboration with Anderson, launch a new trilogy that takes up where Herbert Sr. left off with Chapterhouse: Dune (1985). This entertaining if over-the-top update begins three years after the refugee "no-ship," Ithaca, has fled Chapterhouse and the brutal Honored Matres, a corrupted faction of the all-female Bene Gesserit order led by Mother Commander Murbella. Duncan Idaho, Murbella's ex-love slave, guides the ship carrying reincarnated warrior Miles Teg, the dissident Rev. Mother Sheeana and 150 other refugees. While Murabella deals with violent rebels from within, another more sinister enemy... secretly infiltrates the Honored Matres... Herbert's ecological and religious concerns now seem oddly prescient, but this sizzling update, still filled with crazed women who sexually enslave men, sometimes borders on campy 1950s B-movie parody.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
To be fair, the first three "sequexploitations" were not that bad. After all, Kevin J. Anderson, a mediocre author at best (I very much doubt that Herbert's son has anything to do with actually putting words on paper) did not veer far from the great Man's shadow. Small tentative steps around allready well-created characters functioning in a rich world. We, the fans of the original DUNE series, thirsty for more, we followed them. So, the more they sold, the more bold they became. Finally, they shrugged the last stitch of dignity. Do they actually think anyone bought the "in a long-forgotten vault we found my father's notes - for (an UNSPECIFIED NUMBER!!!) of new books"?

Standing on a giant's shoulders they first decided to create a protoDune World. Their next Trilogy introduced or "explained" tiresome Cymecs, a flaccid jihad, shallow characters, all with a simplified repetitive narrative. What is this? DUNE FOR DUMMIES?
Salivating over a larger audience, they decided their readers are barely intelligent enough to function by themselves. Hence, the vapid prose.

Now this one...Ah, it takes the cake. One of the appealing points of the Original Dune universe was its retro novelty. No races, no religions, no nationalities from old Earth. Yet, on the Dune canvas the timeless human psyche was projected in a virtuoso way. The same fears and desires, the same virtues and cardinal sins - all in worlds of sand, worms, Sardaukar, personal shields. And Spice.

Rabbis celebrating passover in Dune? What 's next? A Richard Simmons ghola promoting the new Ixian Thigh-master? Every other religion evolved (remember the Buddislamists?). What do they imply is wrong with Jews? What kind of half-baked racism is this? Not to mention a continuity blunder.

as one of the original dune fan who enjoyed the god emperor,heretics and chapterhouse books the most for its philosophical,enthropological ,economical,sociological and political depth, i was appalled at the stupidity of brian h and kevin j with the first 3 prequels , but as their stories sure were interesting i put up with the horrible writing and the pointlessness of what they used to wrap around their bone(love ,another thing that differenciate human from machine...come ON).16 years old have more insigth than those two in the human nature,and more interesting aspects to ponder. with the jihad series,once again, story was great ,but the characters absence of depth and stupid dialogues really marred it ,but still i had fun. here they are messing big time with the gospel on a storyline supposedly writen by herbert himself. but ultimately its hilarious how they simply have absolutely no grasp on what made heretic and chapterhouse the best books in the series. i would cry ,but by this i can only find them ludicrioulsy funny.they are good intentionned, if not a bit opportunist, and i think they sincerely dont even have the wits to actually understand why they are so bad. that such a man made such a son is a very humbling insight on the fleetingnessof intelligence, in this case its clearly not genetic. may the worms forgive them ,the 2 stupid fools have no idea where they thread.let me collapse in indigest litterary cramps now. but i had to read it. ,if only because it just-about pertains to 6 books that are and will always be my bibles. long live the heretics, and shame on those who will never have a clue of what they really were. sorry for spelling mistakes, second language here.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a whole I've enjoyed the continuation of the Dune saga as written by Messr Herbert and Anderson. For the most part they have given some fascinating background to the event and personalities that made the Dune series such an epic for science fiction fans.

With "Hunters of Dune", my enjoyment ended. I finished the book only because I felt I had to finish it. At times it was confusing and at times the surprise was more a let down. It was a case of 'like I didn't see that coming 100 pages earlier'.

To sum it up, its just not that good.

Format: Hardcover
the review title pretty much says it all... i don't have the book fresh in my mind right now, but with all of the TRUELY awful books getting published (some ending up with misleadingly positive reviews), I felt i should add something saying that, while it doesn't live up to the standards set by the original series, I never expected it to and it is unfair to review it only in comparison to the original masterpieces. This is a book written by middle of the road authors utilizing the notes left behind by a brilliant author.
