This book is about the children of Paul Atreides, Maud'Dib, but many of the old characters are back and are very welcome. There is a lot of mysticism and philosophy that surround the story.

The Children of Paul Atreides find themselves players in a game of intergalactic intrigue being played by all the major players in the Dune universe. This is a good read and it's the end of the first trilogy of Dune books.

I love the Dune Chronicles. They seem to encompasse so much - from political theory to philosophy to family allegiance. Each book is immensely complex.

Great series. This book is not as strong as the first but make sure that you read it and Messiah so that you can get to the stunning fourth book - God Emperor of Dune.

My son was named after Leto, and it was nice to read why my husband wanted to choose it so badly. I honestly took a long time to get into this book. I really liked the first one, and the second was so-so, and I didn't really get all into this until the last one hundred pages.

Basically in this third book installation of the series, there are several problems that all go around Alia's abomination as she allows her Harkonnen blood rule her. Duncan Idaho is betrayed and needs to decide where his loyalty lies. Jessica fears her grandchildren turning out like her daughter while also having to train a Corrino in the Bene Gesserit way. The Preacher is introduced as one who stirs things up with his message against Alia, and many think he is Muad'dib. Leto and Ghanima, the twins show us how they control their past lives that are within them, and Leto seeks taking the Golden Path that his father could not take.

Anoither in Frank Herbert's series of stories about a planet with almost no water and the effects that has on the people who live there. An excellent series.
