Content descriptions

General Note:
"A Tom Doherty Associates book"--Title page.
Summary, etc.:
"Leto Atreides, Duke of Caladan and father of the Muad'Dib. While all know of his fall and the rise of his son, little is known about the quiet ruler of Caladan and his partner Jessica. Or how a Duke of an inconsequential planet earned an emperor's favor, the ire of House Harkonnen, and set himself on a collision course with his own death. This is the story."--Provided by publisher.

    The latest estate-authorized Dune series focuses on Duke Leto Atriedes and the events leading to Frank Herbert's 1965 book. A celebration of 10,000 years of the Corrino Imperium becomes the target of a terrorist attack that kills hundreds of Landsraad lords. Leto is able to warn the Emperor in time for them to escape the destruction of the vast museum built on an obscure planet. The series of events that follow include the discovery of a dangerous drug being produced exclusively on Caladan a calamity on Wallich IX that requires the Mother Superior to recall Leto's concubine, Jessica; and attempts to find a marriage partner for fourteen-year-old Paul Atriedes. All of the prominent figures from the original series are featured with assured authenticity. The intrigues are as complex as one expects from Brian Herbert and Anderson, who have written so many books that expand the Dune saga. A very good introduction to the world of Dune for new readers as well as an exciting adventure for those well aware of the doom awaiting the tragic father of the Kwisatch Haderach. HIGH DEMAND BACKSTORY: The upcoming big-budget Dune movie will create a new audience for this prequel in addition to drawing fans. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
