Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Compelling...a worthy addition to this durable and deservedly popular series."
-New York Times

"The vast and fascinating Dune saga sweeps on."
-Kirkus Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Now that the planet Arrakis (Dune) has been annihilated, the Bene Gesserit order turns its stronghold Chapterhouse into another desert world, and from this base, the sisterhood plans its moves against ruthless rivals. Drawing on a vast store of history and religion, the book is ``so rich in this one area that others suffer and the narrative crawls,'' PW observed. (October)
