Publisher's Summary

This new Dune trilogy focuses on the beloved core characters of Frank Herbert's classic novel Dune, the world's best-selling science-fiction book.

Leto Atreides, duke of Caladan and father of the Muad'Dib. While all know of his fall and the rise of his son, little is known about the quiet ruler of Caladan and his partner, Jessica. Or how a duke of an inconsequential planet earned an emperor's favour, the ire of House Harkonnen and set himself on a collision course with his own death. This is the story.

Through patience and loyalty, Leto serves the Golden Lion Throne. Where others scheme, the duke of Caladan acts. But Leto's powerful enemies are starting to feel that he is rising beyond his station and House Atreides rises too high. With unseen enemies circling, Leto must decide if the twin burdens of duty and honour are worth the price of his life, family and love.

Thin Plot, but I would get the next one

I have just finished the entire Dune series and enjoyed them each. Sadly, this book is ok, but the sub plot about the Caladian Drug felt tired & borrowed. Hopefully the next one will be stronger & more authentic
