Paul of Dune, the first book in the series

The Heroes of Dune series is a trilogy of novels written by Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson, set during the time of the Corrino Empire and the Ascension of House Atreides. While these books are "interquels" taking place in the time between Frank Herbert's original novels, they also flash-back to events in Paul's childhood.

Paul of Dune was the completion of the three-book contract that began with Hunters of Dune and Sandworms of Dune. The following three books represented a new three-book contract. In July 2010, it was announced that the final two books of the series had been cancelled and that the next Dune book would instead be The Sisterhood of Dune, the start of a new trilogy.


Cancelled Novels[]

  • Leto of Dune (possibly re-titled as The Golden Path of Dune) was a planned novel in this series. This book was intended to illustrate events in God-Emperor Leto Atreides II's reign following the events of Children of Dune. The novel was announced as cancelled in 2010, in favor of the Schools of Dune trilogy. It is uncertain when or if the novel will ever be completed.
