This is the sequel to Dune. It is a great continuation of a great story. The characters continue to grow and develop while the story finds new ways to remain intriguing.

This book has a considerably different tone than the first book; much more melancholy, and it was even deeper and more complex, which may or may not be a good thing. It is not light reading. Much like the first book it was slow to get into at first, but was very engrossing by the middle and I couldn't put it down by the end. If you enjoyed the first book I highly recommend continuing the Dune Chronicles. Herbert has a magnificent voice and has created a stunning, deeply crafted world to rival that of Middle Earth.

Not the best follow-up, but worth reading just to get to the rest of the series.
