Samenvatting

Book Five in the Magnificent Dune Chronicles—the Bestselling Science Fiction Adventure of All Time

Leto Atreides, the God Emperor of Dune, is dead. In the fifteen hundred years since his passing, the Empire has fallen into ruin. The great Scattering saw millions abandon the crumbling civilization and spread out beyond the reaches of known space. The planet Arrakis—now called Rakis—has reverted to its desert climate, and its great sandworms are dying.

Now the Lost Ones are returning home in pursuit of power. And as these factions vie for control over the remnants of the Empire, a girl named Sheeana rises to prominence in the wastelands of Rakis, sending religious fervor throughout the galaxy. For she possesses the abilities of the Fremen sandriders—fulfilling a prophecy foretold by the late God Emperor....

  • Suspenseful fifth part of the Dune saga.

    Geschreven bij Heretics of Dune

    This book picks up the Dune saga 1500 years after the reign of Leto when Dune, now known as Rakis, is turning back into a desert planet. The traditional forces, the Bene Gesserit, the Tleilaxu, the Ixians and the Guild are caught up in power games once more, but are joined by new factions, the Scattered ones and the Honored Matres that have spread over the known universe after the fall off the God Emperor and are now returning to Rakis to reclaim their elder secrets. When a young girl is discovered that seems to have control over the giant sandworms of Rakis she is recognized as the new prophet and the long awaited sign for everyone to deploy their schemes.

    At times ‘Heretics of Dune’ feels more like a new start of the Dune saga than like a continuation of the previous novels. Almost all powers of influence that existed before the time of the God Emperor have returned to their old ways of manipulation and devising plots within plots against everyone else. This sense is further reinforced by the fact that there is no overlap in the cast list with previous installments (the only possible exception being a young version of Duncan Idaho). In addition, the questions that are raised at the end of the previous book ‘God Emperor of Dune’ (what is arafel? what/who is The Oracle?) are not further addressed here. In fact, only new questions are added that remain unanswered. However, these things are not really drawbacks and they don’t prevent this from being a very enjoyable book. Perhaps this novel does not reach the unattainable depth of ‘Dune’ or ‘God Emperor of Dune’, but it is more suspenseful than its predecessors and will grab the attention from the very first page and remains to do so throughout. As in all previous installments the characterization is very strong and all characters are well worked out individuals. With this book Frank Herbert proves once again that he is capable of creating an engaging book like no-one else can.
