The Brian Herbert-Kevin J. Anderson Dune books are quite polarizing. After having read the final book in this series, I find some of the criticism valid. But it's also clear that the authors did try to flesh out the Dune universe in a way that would satisfy Frank Herbert. They're clearly not quite as good with the art of writing, but the books aren't trash.

As I've noted in my reviews of the other Dune House books, there is a lot of repetition and lack of subtlety in the writing. I'm not sure if this is because the book had two authors, but the book repeats itself as if worrying readers will forget. In House Corrino, I found the biggest problem to be that the book had too many disparate and sometimes interwoven plots, but little to make me care about many of them. By the middle of the book, you have dozens of characters running around starting wars, having babies, scheming, etc. The chapters are quite short, meaning that you jump around these various subplots quite a bit because every single subplot seems to climax at the same time. This happens a lot in Star Wars books and frustrates me to no end.

And if you've read Dune, you know that none of it matters. Of course, this is an inherent risk with any Prequel as it's almost impossible to surprise the audience. But this is why authors who try to pen a prequel should focus on building character and depth than on plot twists. We know what has to happen, so why bother? Instead, a good prequel should tell the reader why they should care. Dune, as a single book, ironically feels like it had more depth than this book.

With one exception. I did like seeing Leto Atreides becoming a leader. I thought making him an aggressive military commander was an interesting choice. The authors, as they did in the previous novels, did make him a bit too much of a goody two-shoes, but I do feel like the explanation for why he became so popular prior to the events of Dune makes sense.

Ironically, despite the title, I didn't feel I'd gained much insight into House Corrino at all. Emperor Shaddam comes across as petulant and semi-retarded. This is not the same man who laid such devious plans in Dune and was so careful to hide his involvement in the downfall of House Atreides. Perhaps Shaddam grew wiser within the intervening years, but if so THAT is the story I would have wanted to read. Instead, in this book, we constantly hear Shaddam moaning about how he can make decisions without Fenring's advice (even when it's clear that he can't).

Also, this book contradicts Dune in a major way. Paul is born on Kaitin, not Caladan, even though in Dune it's clear he'd never left his home world. Why? Why contradict Frank Herbert's masterpiece? Having Paul born on Kaitin added nothing to the story or his character.

As this is the final book, I'm forced to ask myself if I should have read the series at all. I'd give the series as a whole 3 stars. There were some nice backstories, particularly for Gurney Halleck, Leto, and Count Fenring. But the books are just not well written. House Corrino especially feels like a triumph of breadth over depth - exactly the opposite of Frank Herbert's Dune books. I "read" these books as audiobooks while doing other chores, so overall I didn't exactly lose too much of my time with the books. For Dune fans, they'll perhaps give you a spice hit, but they won't inspire you to run out and get the next set of Dune books written by Herbert & Anderson.

Overall: 2.5 stars.

Named after the ruling family that has held the known universe in its clutches for generations, Dune: House Corrino wraps up the trilogy with Atreides patriarch Leto the Just becoming a popular and potent leader among the Houses despite tragedy and plots, villainy by both the Harkonnens and the Emperor, and the birth of Paul Atreides whose story is the basis of the first Dune book itself! Some time is spent giving the motivations of most of the key characters in Dune, including why Lady Jessica betrayed the Sisterhood to give birth to Paul and the ongoing animosity between the houses. Again, some editing and pacing issues as well as less-vibrant characterization prevent this tale from meeting the high standard set by the original series.

I like these books. But their are too many inconsistencies from this to Frank Herberts Dune that did not need to occur. In Dune, Jessica gave birth to Paul knowing about the Bene Geserrit plans to produce a male superpower. In House Corrino she is oblivious to it. This is kind of a big deal, changing a characters history.

That being said, its still a good read. Just take the plot holes with a grain of salt.

House Corrino is a worthy ending to the prequel trilogy to the great novel "Dune." I thoroughly enjoyed it. In this novel, the Emperor Shaddam Corrino tries to conclude his plan to remake the Galactic Imperium through his secret artificial spice project. House Atreides secures its position as Duke Leto gains experience as the Duke of Caladan. Overall, this is a very interesting storyline that holds the reader's interest and leads up to the original Dune novel theme. A book that can do all that is not unimpressive.

In fact, House Corrino does a fair job of explaining the inner workings of the Galactic Imperium--better than Dune itself did. The reader learns a great deal about House-to-House warfare, the strictures of kanly, and other elements of the Dune universe which the original Dune novel really only just touched upon. The Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, similarly, springs to life in this novel.

I went back and forth between three stars and four, but ultimately went with four stars because this book passed one of my major tests: I enjoyed reading it the second time as much as the first. This is a genuine story of political intrigue that is internally consistent, features decent character development (perhaps even better than Frank Herbert achieved in Dune; character development was never one of Frank Herbert's major strengths.)

Overall this is an engaging novel that Dune enthusiasts won't want to pass up. I thought it was clearly better than the sequels to Dune that Frank Herbert himself wrote.
