If you liked the original "Dune," you'll like this book.
The Dune series is a must read for all Sci-Fi enththusiasts. Frank Herberts Dune novels are the best. Herbert paints a picture so vivid you live it.
The fifth book of the DUNE series....The planet Arrakis, now called Rakis, is becoming desert again. The Lost Ones are returning home from the far reaches of space. The great sandworms are dying. And the children of DUNE's children awaken from empire as from a dream, wielding the new power of a heresy called love......
Amazing book. Frank Herbert is perhaps the most thoughtful sci fi author of all time. In this book set thousands of years after God Emperor the descendents of the Atreides still have a new enemy and new abilities.
"In this, the fifth and most spectacular DUNE book of all, the planet Arrakis - now called Rakis - is becoming desert again. The Lost Ones are returning from the far reaches of space. The great sandworms are dying. And the children of DUNE's children awaken from empire as from a dream, wielding the new power of a heresy called love..."
It has been thousands of years since the end of the reign of the God Emperor Leto Atreides, and a new threat to the Dune universe rears it's head. A strange army of women warriors is invading every planet in their path, and the players in the Dune universe must consolidate their resources and work together or be destroyed. The first book in the final Dune series.
Not the best of the series but better than the Kevin Anderson books.
Fifth in the Dune chronicles.
This was a good edition to the series. It was easier to read than children and god emperor in that it didn't have all of those deep philosophical concepts and double meanings to dig through. Though I did like those two I think I missed half of what he was saying. Heretics doesn't have all that it instead centers on the Bene Tlielax and Bene Gesserit. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the others.
One of the best DUne Books yest
One of those books you enjoy over, and over again!
