Only the most desperate would ever dare to make a new home on Hellhole, a planet ravaged by natural disasters. Persistent volcanic eruptions, destructive storms and recent damage inflicted by asteroid impact make the planet a dumping ground for undesirables, misfits and charlatans. But its location out on the wild frontiers of the Constellation, among the Deep Zone worlds, makes it the final refuge for those fleeing from the rule of Diadem Michella Duchenet - a tyrant with a sweet face, but a dark and heardened heart. General Adolphus, the military leader exiled to the planet when he was defeated in the first revolution against the Diadem, is determined to transform Hellhole into a place of opportunity. While the colonists are diligently working to develop the planet, the General is forging secret alliances with the leaders of the other Deep Zone worlds. He dreams of turning his prison into the centre of a new coalition of planets free from the Diadem's iron grip. Back on the decadent capital planet of Sonjeera, surrounded by corruption and consumed by the plots and feuds of the old guard nobles, Diadem Michella is confident that the General has been neutralized. She has no idea of the revolt growing in the Deep Zone ...or does she? But what no one knows is this: the planet Hellhole, though damaged and volatile, hides secrets of historic magnitude. Lurking beneath the surface are the remnants of an obliterated alien civilization, detailing an unrecorded past, which, if unearthed, could tear the fragile human civilization apart.

Review:

“This new space epic from the best-selling team of Herbert and Anderson is wide and complex...Audie Award winner Scott Brick’s performance keeps the suspense elevated. Fear not, these authors will deliver the rest of the story on schedule. Fans of traditional sf fare will keep this, and future volumes, moving off the shelves.” – Library Journal, starred review

“[Scott Brick] manages to capture the fiery determination of exiled General Adolphus and the cold calculating cruelty of Diadem Michella while still allowing the listener’s imagination to fill in the gaps. The book’s many other viewpoint characters also find unique expression in Brick’s capable hands...Hellhole manages to stand out as a science fiction novel that succeeds in all the areas that the genre should. It’s cerebrally engaging, spiritually challenging, and yet emotionally powerful as a story in its own right. I’m very excited to find out what the next two volumes have in store.” – Azurescape

“[Brick] has a very versatile voice which is easy to listen to, bringing life to all the characters in his own special way...The dialogue is fast and furious, likewise the action, and it is a page-turner from start to finish. Space opera at its best...this audiobook is certainly recommended not just for its story but for the good quality reproduction of the narration. It’s new and exciting and it will surely be well received.” – SFCrowsnest.com

Previous Praise for Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson “Herbert and Anderson create vivid characters—both human and machine—with passionate goals.”
RT Book Reviews on Dune: The Battle of Corrin

“Filling in the gaps between the late Frank Herbert’s classic Dune and its sequels Dune Messiah and Children of Dune...this sequel to Paul of Dune is an important addition to the Dune chronology and will be in demand by Herbert fans.”
Library Journal, starred review on The Winds of Dune
