Publisher's Summary

One hundred and ten centuries from now, humanity has spread across space. And all-powerful machines rule the humans who were once their masters.

It began in the Time of Tyrants, when ambitious men and women used high-powered computers to seize control of the heart of the Old Empire including Earth itself. The tyrants translated their brains into mobile mechanical bodies and created a new race, the immortal man-machine hybrids called cymeks. Then the cymeks' world-controlling planetary computers - each known as Omnius - seized control from their overlords, and 1,000 years of brutal rule by the thinking machines began. But their world faces disaster. Impatient with human beings' endless disobedience and the cymeks' continual plotting to regain their power, Omnius has decided that it no longer needs them. Only victory can save the human race from extermination.

Just excellent!!

Scott Brick is easily the best narrator, I can’t imagine anyone else doing it. This book is just unadulterated excellence. I’m a huge fan of the dune series as a whole, and I can’t recommend this more!! Enjoy!

A stellar expansion to Dune

An amazing story of titanic struggle, deception, galactic warfare and deep cruelty masked as curiosity, the first installment of this trilogy left me instantly jumping to the next book.

Much better than I expected

I really enjoyed this and although I'd recommend reading the original Dune novel first I actually think it stands up well in its own right or if you wanted to read the books chronologically. left me excited to read the next one.

Great story, annoying background music!

Loved the story, (read the paperbacks) but audio ruined by constant intrusion of loud music.

Fourth time listening

I originally bought it as a CD set and it has remained a perennial fave. Had a hankering to listen again after seeing the new movie but no longer own a cd player so downloaded. I wasn't disappointed! Wonderful story, but the standout is the beautiful narration. I love seeing the origin of the dune world
