Dune has been destroyed! The last remaining Reverend Mothers of the Bene Gesserit scramble to try to find a way to keep the last sandworm alive so there is hope for more spice to give them strength. And their enemy gets closer every day...This is the second book in the final Dune series. It's also Frank Herbert's last Dune book before he died. It's a good read...but it stops on a cliffhanger which was torture on fans for decades...at least until the new books by his son and Kevin J. Anderson started.
