Book Two in the stunning conclusion to Frank Herbert's worldwide bestselling Dune Chronicles
At the end of Frank Herbert's final novel, Chapterhouse: Dune, a ship carrying a crew of refugees escapes into the uncharted galaxy, fleeing from a terrifying, mysterious Enemy. The fugitives used genetic technology to revive key figures from Dune's past--including Paul Muad'Dib and Lady Jessica--to use their special talents to meet the challenges thrown at them.
Based directly on Frank Herbert's final outline, which lay hidden in two safe-deposit boxes for a decade, Sandworms of Dune will answer the urgent questions Dune fans have been debating for two decades: the origin of the Honored Matres, the tantalizing future of the planet Arrakis, the final revelation of the Kwisatz Haderach, and the resolution to the war between Man and Machine.
This breathtaking new novel in Frank Herbert's Dune series has enough surprises and plot twists to please even the most demanding reader.

You can't have it all your own way......
Alas, the son is not the father, but we should at least realize that this finish to the dune series is about as deftly handled as the material would allow. Remember that 2 people wrote this book by consensus, and that usually means one is watering down what the other has written, it also explains the schizoid under flavor while its timing and conclusion were bipolar, too bad it ended on a manic cycle.
A fitting conclusion - but mixed reviews show it's either a love it or leave it.
For those who think this book was "horrific" all I can say is that Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson are not Frank Herbert. They did take his draft manuscript and notes and finished the saga. This closed many loose ends for me and I appreciate it. If you're looking for Frank Herbert, don't waste your time, if you want a fitting finsih to the story, do what I did, buy it, read or listen to it and enjoy.
Kevin J. Anderson murders Dune
This is not a good book if you like Dune just reread the old Dune books
