Summary:

Frank Herbert's 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...

    I'd forgotten how self-important this series had gotten. When Mr. Herbert actually buckles down to a plot it gets interesting but, unfortunately, most of the time the "story" is a blather of puffed up, pseudo religios cant. I gave it four stars because the narration was WONDERFUL. Simon Vance, et al, made this palatable.

    I thought that book 2 (Dune Messiah) was a little slow, but was blown away by this one. If you enjoyed "Dune", then this one is a must. It ties everything together and will keep you going to the end of the series.
