Publisher Description

It is eighty-three years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler took the name of Corrino and established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. Great changes are brewing that will shape and twist all of humankind.

The war hero Vorian Atreides has turned his back on politics and Salusa Secundus. The descendants of Abulurd Harkonnen Griffen and Valya have sworn vengeance against Vor, blaming him for the downfall of their fortunes. Raquella Berto-Anirul has formed the Bene Gesserit School on the jungle planet Rossak as the first Reverend Mother. The descendants of Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva have built Venport Holdings, using mutated, spice-saturated Navigators who fly precursors of Heighliners. Gilbertus Albans, the ward of the hated Erasmus, is teaching humans to become Mentats…and hiding an unbelievable secret.

The Butlerian movement, rabidly opposed to all forms of "dangerous technology," is led by Manford Torondo and his devoted Swordmaster, Anari Idaho. And it is this group, so many decades after the defeat of the thinking machines, which begins to sweep across the known universe in mobs, millions strong, destroying everything in its path.

Every one of these characters, and all of these groups, will become enmeshed in the contest between Reason and Faith. All of them will be forced to choose sides in the inevitable crusade that could destroy humankind forever….

Be warned: McDune is NOT Dune.

These new Dune books are to say the least vastly inferior to the originals....think lowest-common-denominator "Star Wars" books which were also largely written by Anderson, who favors quantity over quality and specializes in running great universes into the ground by exploiting the hopes of popular series fans and not delivering on them. That's not to say that you can't still enjoy a McDune book....I managed to eke out a little pleasure from some of them before finally realizing how tragically awful of a writer Anderson is and how little he really cares about quality, consistency, or honoring the things that make these popular universes great.

Sisterhood of dune

I think it is a good read someone has written Brian Herbert McDune books. Brian admitted he does not write as his father he has his own style if he writes like his father he would be a fake. Brian has his own style and it is good reading.

Sisterhood of Dune

I have read every book in the Dune series. This book, Sisterhood of Dune, is a fabulous story, which in addition to the other books in the series, connects the stories of Dune. I would recommend this book to anyone who is serious about Dune and it's history.

Great flow in writing these chapters and there is never a dull moment. Again, it is a great read and an awesome addition to the whole of the Dune series.
