De keizer heeft zijn vader, Hertog Leto, het gouverneurschap van de weerbarstige woestijnplaneet Arrakis aangeboden. Maar is het een eervolle promotie of een manier om van de machtige familie af te komen?
    Arrakis, beter bekend als Duin, is de enige planeet waar de specie melange voorkomt, een drug die stimulerend werkt en daardoor cruciaal is om in de ruimte te kunnen navigeren. Er zijn daarom meer kapers op de kust en huis Atreides wordt van alle kanten bedreigd. Uiteindelijk vlucht Paul de woestijn in, waar mysterieuze en gevaarlijke Vrijmans en monsterlijke zandwormen op de loer liggen.
    De voorspellingen over Pauls leven komen een voor een uit, en de strijd om de macht over Duin en het heelal begint...

    De epische vertelling in 6 titels over huis Atreides, huis Harkonnen, de verslavende specie melange en zandwormen op de planeet Duin begint bij dit eerste deel. Duin werd met een Nebula Award (1965) en Hugo Award (1966) bekroond en is een van standaardwerken in de geschiedenis van sciencefiction. Op dit boek zijn diverse films en televisie series, diverse bordspellen en verschillende computergames gebaseerd.
