Publisher Description

Following their internationally bestselling novels Dune: The Butlerian Jihad and Dune: The Machine Crusade, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson forge a final tumultuous finish to their prequels to Frank Herbert's Dune.

Dune: The Battle of Corrin

It has been fifty-six hard years since the events of The Machine Crusade. Following the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. Synchronized Worlds and Unallied Planets are liberated one by one, and at long last, after years of struggle, the human worlds begin to hope that the end of the centuries-long conflict with the thinking machines is finally in sight.

Unfortunately, Omnius has one last, deadly card to play. In a last-ditch effort to destroy humankind, virulent plagues are let loose throughout the galaxy, decimating the populations of whole planets . . . and once again, the tide of the titanic struggle shifts against the warriors of the human race. At last, the war that has lasted many lifetimes will be decided in the apocalyptic Battle of Corrin.

In the greatest battle in science fiction history, human and machine face off one last time. . . . And on the desert planet of Arrakis, the legendary Fremen of Dune become the feared fighting force to be discovered by Paul Muad'Dib in Frank Herbert's classic, Dune.

Tried Brian's offal again, was burned again

These books are a travesty to the memory of Frank Herbert and his magnum opus; the richness and multi-layered detail of the originals, filled with ghosts and hints, are steamrolled into a 2-D TV soap opera. I can't poison my memory of Dune--read the complete series at least 3 times--with this, and for any true fan I would recommend steering clear. How could this happen? Who has the right to take over Frank's lifetime achievement, where each tome surpasses the last by an order of magnitude?

Taken in isolation, these new books are flat, lifeless caricatures of good sci fi.
