The conventional wisdom seems to be that only the first Dune book is good and that the rest of them are awful but I ve found this to definitely not be the case This 3rd book in the series was gripping and excitingI literally couldn t put it down Don t listen to what everyone else says read these books for yourself and make your own decisionyou won t be disappointed This one focuses on the children of Muad Dib as well as his sister Alia wife in name only Irulan and the return of his mother Jessica to the political goings on of Arrakis and the struggles with the almost cult like religion that has sprung up around his supposed death and his sister as its new figurehead Behind the scenes there is all sorts of plotting and double dealing between a whole host of characters and factions and the shocking revelations from the middle of the book on make this book one of the best in the series and it wraps up the first trilogy of books and this time period with a bang

The third of the Dune and the slide away from the uality of the original masterpiece has begun in earnestBetter than Dune Messiah but only in that it is ambitious and with a cohesive plot Herbert takes a introspective narrative to prepare the way for Leto II The concepts of shared DNA collective memories and possession run astride a vehicle of rapid autocratic declineSome cool scenes a few interesting new concepts but ultimately Herbert s vision is starting to fray and the great bulk of his masterwork is becoming as cumbersome as the Baron s ghost A cautionary tale for creators of series go back to the well too often and the water gets stale

Buddy read with Athena This rocky shrine to the skull of a ruler grants no prayers It has become the grave of lamentations Only the wind hears the voice of this place The cries of night creatures and the passing wonder of two moons all say his day has ended No supplicants come The visitors have gone from the feast How bare the pathway down this mountainPaul Muad dib god and emperor of a universe divided is gone The religiously pantocratic Imperium has been left with his two nine year old children Leto and Ghanima But despite being born with the knowledge and memories of a thousand generations the two Children of Dune will not be allowed to take their father s throne at such a young age Instead the Atreides empire is ruled by a council of advisors among them Stilgar and Irulan But true power rests in the hands of Muad dib s sister Alia Atreides who clings to control of the regencyBut in Alia s mind there are voices whispering The voices of evils long gone who intend to forge the woman worshipped as the Womb of Heaven into a dangerous weapon to be unleashed And while Alia descends into madness House Corrino sees its chance to take back all that the Atreides have stolen from it And a mysterious old Preacher walks out of the sands to publicly denounce the religion of Muad dib Meanwhile Leto and Ghanima journey together into the desert chasing old myths and desperately trying to understand why the legendary sandworms are slowly disappearing from the surface of Dune This is the fallacy of power ultimately it is effective only in an absolute a limited universe But the basic lesson of our relativistic universe is that things change Any power must always meet a greater power Paul Muad Dib taught this lesson to the Sardaukar on the Plains of Arrakeen His descendants have yet to learn the lesson for themselves One very interesting aspect about the book is the fact that it s filled to the brim with uotes about politics religion and power Just as is it a science fiction classic and an epic adventure Children of Dune is something of a guidebook to the very meaning of power Of how one struggles for it how one gains it and what absolute power can do to the person wielding it And some of these lines would be worth uoting over and over There were in olden times certain tribes which were known to be water hunters They were called Iduali which meant water insects because those people wouldn t hesitate to steal the water of another Fremen If they caught you alone in the desert they would not even leave you the water of your flesh There was this place where they lived Sietch Jacurutu That s where the other tribes banded and wiped out the Iduali That was a long time ago before Kynes even in my great great grandfather s days And from that day to this no Fremen has gone to Jacurutu It is tabuWhile not as outright astonishing as the first two books in the series this is definitely a great addition to the wonderful universe of Dune Frank Herbert s writing is better than ever which is the reason for all the uotes in this review And while certain characters are absent from this book other character who were absent in Dune Messiah are brought back onto the sceneThe part of the book that fascinated me the most was definitely the character development of Alia Atreides When reading Dune it s uite easy to notice that elements of it have directly inspired a lot of later fantasy authors including Robert Jordan and George RR Martin And there are many things of Alia her rule as regent and her descent into madness that are particularly reminiscent of a certain ueen named Cersei But in my eyes Alia is a fascinating character stillThus ends the final book of the Great Dune Trilogy one of the absolute greatest series every written within the genres of speculative fiction But the tale goes on a tale of spice and sandworms of assassins and great houses of the calculating Mentats and the devious plans of the Bene Gesserit a tale of the planet Dune The desert is my home
