Samenvatting

Ook Four in the Magnificent Dune Chronicles—the Bestselling Science Fiction Adventure of All TimeMillennia have passed on Arrakis, and the once-desert planet is green with life. Leto Atreides, the son of the worlds savior, the Emperor Paul MuadDib, is still alive but far from human. To preserve humanitys future, he sacrificed his own by merging with a sandworm, granting him near immortality as God Emperor of Dune for the past thirty-five hundred years. Letos rule is not a benevolent one. His transformation has made not only his appearance but his morality inhuman. A rebellion, led by Siona, a member of the Atreides family, has risen to oppose the despots rule. But Siona is unaware that Letos vision of a Golden Path for humanity requires her to fulfill a destiny she never wanted—or could possibly conceive. . . .

  • The best science-fiction/fantasy has to offer!

    Geschreven bij (04): God Emperor of Dune

    Three-and-a-half thousand years after the start of Leto’s remarkable transformation Dune is no longer a desert planet and Leto has become the undisputed God Emperor of the universe, bringing long lasting peace to mankind. Leto’s peace is actually more an enforced tranquility required to ensure the survival of humankind when the alternative is chaos. However, how does one convince humans whose immediate concern usually does not extend past one lifetime? There are people that can see only tyranny in Leto’s Golden Path … but how does one stop a seemingly invincible God possessing the power of prescience?

    ‘God Emperor of Dune’ is an absolute joy to read! This fourth book in the series brings the Dune saga to a new epic scale and comes with a focused writing style that is refreshing after the two previous installments in the series. This creates a story that one can really immerse oneself into. The story offers a compelling challenge to try to understand the creature that Leto has become as well as his Golden Path. The plot that is devised to put an end to the all-knowing God Emperor is gripping. That and the role of Duncan Idaho who finds himself lost in a new world that has perhaps changed even more than Leto himself makes this an emotionally touching and engaging novel that is very difficult to put down. For a large part of the novel it is not really clear what the story is headed to, but that really does not matter when the story is as powerful as this one: you just want it to go on. This is science-fiction/fantasy writing at its best!
