About this deal

Again, maybe I’ll discover that answer by the time I reach the final page, but for now I will continue being unable to put this installment in the series down. Próbowałem sobie streścić fabułę w tym wpisie, ale brzmiało to bardziej jak wstęp do filmu dla dorosłych, niż jak epicka historia sci-fi.

It is just as bad when it happens to a boy as it is when it happens to a girl, and nothing that you can say will justify it.

The books featured on this site are aimed primarily at readers aged 13 or above and therefore you must be 13 years or over to sign up to our newsletter. The most powerful of these forces are the Honored Matres, a violent society of women bred and trained for combat and the sexual control of men. When I read the first Dune novel, I was eager to delve further into the fictional universe Frank Herbert created, but wondered how far into the sequels I should go.

I’m one of those weirdos that actually likes the entirety of Frank Herbert’s Dune series even after you get past the first three volumes and the direct history of Muad’Dib and his family and start wading into some seriously weird stuff (and saying that the later volumes of the series are weird when you compare them to the earlier ones is saying something).

Like its sequel, the emphasis is on female characters, with the exception of Miles Teg and Duncan Idaho. I am not looking forward to reading Chapterhouse: Dune, I will only do so because of my stubborn resolve to not leave a series unfinished, but after that, thankfully I will be done. The sheer scope of time that has passed makes for fascinating reading and this is an excellent book. If you do not have the intellect to appreciate the philosophical value of this book, then yeah, you are not going to enjoy this book. In my heart, the series isn't a series at all but a single novel that ended with Paul as emperor and the knowledge of the Jihad to come.

Prescience, a subject Herbert had all but exhausted as far back as Dune Messiah, takes a back seat here. Fifteen hundred years have passed since the 3,500-year reign of the God Emperor Leto II Atreides ended with his assassination; humanity is firmly on the Golden Path, Leto's plan to save humanity from destruction. The novel takes place 1,500 years after the death of “God Emperor” Leto II, who chose to become a human-sandworm hybrid and reigned for thousands of years as he sought to preserve humanity through his “Golden Path”. An effort is made to develop characters properly - admittedly limited to a handful of childhood details, the occasional noting of a character's personal preferences, and the odd musing on the nature of love, but this is uncharted ground for the Dune series, where characters are usually far too busy planning the future of humanity to darn their own socks.A young girl has an older man force himself on her and it's horrible and unthinkable, the same thing happens to a boy with an older woman and everyone is like, "good for him. Skupiamy się tu na zgromadzeniach żeńskich, a wśród postaci pojawia się tylko jedna z poprzednich tomów. In a story that literally spans across thousands of years, Herbert bridges these books together with a common character, Duncan Idaho. Be warned: there are some spoilerific details for previous volumes of the original Dune series below.
