Blurb: 
Frank Herbert"s award-winning Dune chronicles captured the imaginations of millions of readers worldwide. By his death in 1986, Frank Herbert had completed six novels in the Dune series. But much of his vision remained unwritten. Now, working from recently discovered files left by his father, Brian Herbert and bestselling novelist Kevin J. Anderson collaborate on a new novel, the prelude to Dune-where we step onto planet Arrakis...decades before Dune"s hero Paul Maud"Dib Atreides, walks it"s sands. Here is the rich and complex world that Frank Herbert created in his classic series, in the time leading up to the momentous events of Dune. As Emperor Elrood"s son Shaddam plots a subtle regicide, young Leto Atreides leaves his lush, water-rich planet for a year"s education on the mechanized world of Ix; a planetologist named Pardot Kynes is dispatched by the Emperor to the desert planet Arrakis, or Dune, to discover the secrets of the addictive spice known as melange; and the eight-year-old slave Duncan Idaho is hunted by his cruel masters in a terrifying game from which he vows escape and vengeance. But none can envision the fate in store for them: one that will make them renegades-and shapers of history.
