Turns out, I already had a copy. Reread it, then turned over to my used book store so someone else could get a cheap read!

Paul of Dune, Heroes of Dune

by toonboi on Jul 4, 2009

This book goes back and forth from the time between the books of ?Dune? and ?Dune Messiah?, and the time of a young Paul growing up on Caladan. What I especially love about this book, is how it revisit?s the House Trilogy, and reminds me of all that I had forgotten of the Atrteides, Corrino, and Harkonnen families. Beginning one year after the fall of Shaddam IV, the book goes into the Jihad?s beginnings, the destruction of the Landsraad, and Princess Irulan?s role as the wife of Paul-Maud?Dib. It goes into graphic detail of Paul?s Fedaykin fighters? their hedonistic faith in him, their beliefs that they are carrying out his holy orders in bloody violence, without mercy, as they travel throughout the planets of the Imperium. Shaddam IV, exiled to Salusa Secundus, is desperate and asks for Fenring?s help. Irulan is writing another book on the life of Paul-Maud?Dib about his childhood. It starts with the politically arranged marriage between House Atreides and House Ecaz, and the troubles it causes Jessica and young Paul. When the only son of House Moritani dies because of a house feud, the War of Assassins begins. Disguised Paul-Maud?Dib joins his men in the fighting, and discovers about himself that he is not like his father Duke Leto. Jessica and Gurney return to Arrakis and report to Paul that the people see him as a tyrant, even those on Caladan. The Sisterhood requests a meeting with Marie, and is forced to leave her in the hands of her parents. Fenring uncovers the Tleilaxu-bred Kwisatz Haderach! Irulan wonders why Chani is not pregnant. The construction of the Citadel of Maud?Dib under Swordmaster Bluddi?s architectural vision continues. Young Paul?s story continues when Duke Leto is forced into the War of Assassins, because of an attempt on Paul?s life. The joined armies of Leto and Armand attack Grumman. After the Landsraad meeting, were Viscount Moritani receives a slap on the wrist from Shaddam for violating the rules of the War of Assassins, he demands that the Harkonnen army join his in order to defend against the invasion. Because the Baron wants to remain anonymous in Moritani?s revengeful war, the Baron is blackmailed in order for Moritani to keep their secret. Duncan and Paul seek refuge on the Eastern Continent, to keep Paul safe. They are tracked and hunted, until Paul convinces Duncan to return, to fight by his father?s side. The first stage of the construction of the Citadel of Maud?Dib is completed. Paul holds the Great Surrender ceremony in the awe-inspiring Celestial Audience Hall. There is an assassination attack on Paul?s life. Irulan?s heart is hardened when her younger sister Rugi is an innocent victim of the attack. On Thalidei, Thallo and Marie are joined together for lessons, to learn from and teach one another. Marie is encouraged to use her deadly skills when Thallo tries to destroy the Theilaxu Kwisatz Haderach program. Shaddam IV intervenes in the war on Grumman, to prevent it from getting out of control. With the capture of Viscount Moritani, the Baron must act to protect himself and his house. Naturally consistent, Beast Rabban proves that he is not smart enough to lead, but just clever enough to survive. Paul?s demand to speak with the Navigator and his prescience, gives him a resolution to his battle with Memnon Thorvald, Shaddam?s supporter. A visit from Maria to stay at the Citadel of Maud?Dib, gives Alia a chance to be a child, and is a threat to the life of Paul-Maud?Dib.
