With their usual skill, Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson have taken ideas left behind by Frank Herbert and filled them with living characters and a true sense of wonder. Where Paul of Dune picked up the saga directly after the events of Dune, The Winds of Dune begins after the events of Dune Messiah.
Paul has walked off into the sand, blind, and is presumed dead. Jessica and Gurney are on Caladan; Alia is trying to hold the Imperial government together with Duncan; Mohiam dead at the hands of Stilgar; Irulan imprisoned. Paul's former friend, Bronso of Ix, now seems to be leading opposition to the House of Atreides. Herbert and Anderson's newest book in this landmark series will concentrate on these characters as well the growing battle between Jessica, and her daughter, Alia.

Better than expected
Obviously this writing duo has improved over time. Many die hard fans have had a hard time swallowing the style, or lack there of, in some of the other prequels and postquels.
I am pleased to say that this particular volume is a good read, not too fantastical, and adds to the whole Dune saga in a way that I think other Dune fans will appreciate.
Anderson and Herbert are not Frank Herbert, I think that's clear, but I do enjoy their continuations of the Dune-inverse. This one is sort of so-so and I could have just skipped it and went on to Children
