Prelude to Dune: House Atreides
by Brian Herbert & Kevin J Anderson
Reminiscent of Dune, but lacking that quality, whatever it is, that made Dune special. Needs more sex.
by Sara Douglas
Deeply flawed. Begins poorly, improves significantly, then completely falls apart somewhere around halfway. The final battle against the big bad is laughably easy. Needs more sex.
by Stephen Bury
300 pages too long. Needs more sex.

Now this is more like it. Quite good. Intense. Needs more sex.
by David Zindell
Magnificent, once you get over the fact that every second word is a made-up one. 20 - 50 pages too short. Needs more sex, and less incest.
