The bestselling science fiction series of all time continues! In this third installment, the sand-blasted world of Arrakis has become green, watered and fertile. Old Paul Atreides, who led the desert Fremen to political and religious domination of the galaxy, is gone. But for the children of Dune, the very blossoming of their land contains the seeds of its own destruction. The altered climate is destroying the giant sandworms, and this in turn is disastrous for the planet's economy. Leto and Ghanima, Paul Atreides's twin children and his heirs, can see possible solutions--but fanatics begin to challenge the rule of the all-powerful Atreides empire, and more than economic disaster threatens .

The penultimate Dune Book!

A very good book, something you'd expect from Frank Herbert.

This is a solid entry in the "Dune" series. I particularly enjoyed the surprise ending, and where Herbert took it with subsequent novels.

The desert planet of Dune is still the key to ruling the Universe.
Now that Paul has taken over ... how will he maintain his dominance over all the minor houses and their plottings.
