Book Giveaway: Paul of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

I have a brand new hardcover copy of Paul of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson to give away to one lucky reader of Bookish Ruth.

Here's the description of the book:

Frank Herbert's Dune ended with Paul Muad’Dib in control of the planet Dune. Herbert’s next Dune book, Dune Messiah, picked up the story several years later after Paul’s armies had conquered the galaxy. But what happened between Dune and Dune Messiah? How did Paul create his empire and become the Messiah? Following in the footsteps of Frank Herbert, New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are answering these questions in Paul of Dune.

The Muad’Dib’s jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies--those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands. . . .

And Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders: Am I going mad?

  9. I've always enjoyed the Dune books since discovering them when I was in high school. Thanks for the chance to win.

    My favorite Sci-Fi book or movie...that's a hard one.
    I have lots of love for Joss Whedon's Serenity and, of course, the original Star Wars trilogy. I've read Ender's Game multiple times. Crichton's Timeline was a really fun read (bummer to hear that he died yesterday. I hate cancer.).
    Please, oh please, don't make me pick just one!

  11. My favorite science fiction book and movie is Contact by Carl Sagan.

  12. I've added your giveaway to my blog Reading With Monie. Thanks!

  13. Oh!!! I'd love to read this book! I loved the story of Dune!! I'd love to see what happens to Paul next.

    Favorite Sci-fi book? . . . hmmm - Orson Scott Card is hard to beat with Ender's Game. Fascinating book that grips the reader!
    Then of course there are some great shows and movies on the sci-Fi channel: Firefly, John Doe, Stargate, etc. It's easy to get hooked!
