The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years, but the forces led by Serena Butler and Irbis Ginjo have made only slight gains; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat. Meanwhile, Duke Leto's consort, the beautiful Lady Jessica, obeying the orders of her superiors in the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, has conceived a child that the Sisterhood intends to be the penultimate step in the creation of an all-powerful being.
Like the Bene Gesserit, Shaddam Corrino is also concerned with making a plan for the future-securing his legacy. Download and start listening now!

Great changes are brewing that will shape and twist all of humankind. Book Three of the Epic Prequel to the Classic Novel Dune—Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture The grand finale of the complex epic trilogy of the generation before Frank Herbert’s masterwork Dune. Katherine Kellgren,
This trilogy, House Attredies, House Harkonnen and House Corrino ranks with The Lord of The Rings trilogy as far as I am concerned.
And we learn of the backgrounds of all the other major players: Baron Harkonnen and his maniacal family, Emperor Shaddam and his, Jessica, Rev Mother Mohiam and a whole lot of background on the other Bene Gesserit “witches.” There was a mystical context in the original chronicles but these prequels greatly amplify on that.The Guild Navigators and their relationship to the spice is mentioned only tangentially in the Original but plays a significant part in the prequels. He will free the Ixians from their oppressive conquerors and restore his friend Prince Rhombur, injured scion of the disgraced House Vernius, to his rightful place as Ixian ruler. I just like seeing more of the baron.
As with the others in this series, the main draw is getting the orgins of your favorite characters from the original series. But for the children of Dune, the very blossoming of their land contains the seeds of its own destruction.

I realize this in not in accord with some other reviewers who sometimes seemed to find conflict with the original material. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies - those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands.
Kevin J. Anderson,
Has he created anarchy?
Fearful of losing his precarious hold on the Golden Lion Throne, Shaddam IV, Emperor of a Million Worlds, has devised a radical scheme to develop an alternative to melange, the addictive spice that binds the Imperium together and that can be found only on the desert world of Dune.
The sand-blasted world of Arrakis has become green, watered, and fertile.
