Great addition to the Dune universe. Perfect for fans who wonder how it all started. A must read!
Well written tale
Another chapter in the Dune story that is written very well. I discovered these "Dune prequels" and despite reading many out of sequence, I found each one satisfied my craving for the characters exploits. I was especially fond of the new characters introduced, finding the development of each more than adequate to further fuel my Dune appetite. House Harkonnen was great; on to House Corrino!!!
Great book. Second time reading the prequels. Amazing.
