One of the world’s most important sci-fi works, the Dune saga is an epic tale of intrigue, adventure, and mysticism.
In the distant future on the desert planet of Arrakis, young Paul Atreides struggles to defeat Baron Harkonnen, continuing a generations-long feud between the families. The noble House Atreides has gained control over the planet, which proved to be a dangerous undertaking. Home to the Fremen and inhabited by giant sandworms, Arrakis is the universe’s only source of melange, a mind-altering spice and the world’s most valuable substance. Melange not only protects against disease, prolongs life, and fuels supernatural powers - it also makes space travel possible. Follow along as Paul navigates an intricate and dangerous political web. (Spoiler alert: Paul and Baron Harkonnen aren't the only ones with interests on Arrakis.)
