|Dune: House Harkonnen
The second book in second set of prequel trilogies (“Dune: House Trilogy) put out by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. This one focuses, naturally enough, on the machinations of the members of House Harkonnen that position them for the original “Dune” story.Overall I have to say that I enjoyed the first trilogy (The “Legends of Dune” trilogy) much more. The current trilogy is more about intrigue and bridging the gap between the new material and the existing Dune universe. Don’t get me wrong, I am still enjoying this trilogy immensely it’s just that the previous one had a far grander scale – both in terms of time period covered and in terms of the characters and events explored.
If you haven’t read the “Legends of Dune” and you enjoy Dune, you really need to check it out. Then come to “Dune: House Trilogy” as a denoument.
