In the hotly anticipated first in a new Caladan Trilogy, The Duke of Caladan begins the story of Leto Atreides, Lady Jessica, and their son, the young Paul. The story is set before Leto becomes Duke on Arrakis, when he is the benevolent ruler of a small planetâand life is good. But a terror attack leads to an upheaval in the power structure of the Imperium and the happy Atreides family is thrown into chaos. A fascinating look into Paul's training and an even closer look at the complicated relationship between Leto and Lady Jessica. The audio version is an easy listen. The quick, action packed chapters are well performed, and as the disparate story lines begin to come together it's hard to press pause. Narrator Scott Brick's deep and interesting voice adds more pull to the quieter parts of the story. His care in performing Lady Jessica's often clippedâbut heavy with meaningâdialogue is well done, as are his readings of the characters' inner thoughts. All in all, a fun book and a great performance. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
