Dune: House Atreides (1999)

Dune: House Atreides, by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

Here is the rich and complex world that Frank Herbert created, in the time leading up to the momentous events of DUNE. As Emperor Elrood’s son plots a subtle regicide, young Leto Atreides leaves for a year’s education on the mechanized world of Ix; a planetologist named Pardot Kynes seeks the secrets of Arrakis; 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.
