DUNE MESSIAH: the extraordinary sequel to Dune, the greatest science fiction novel of all time.

Twelve years after his victory over House Harkonnen, Paul Atreides rules as emperor from the desert planet Arrakis - but his victory has had profound consequences. War has been brought to the entire known universe, and billions have already perished. Despite having become the most powerful emperor known to history, Paul is powerless to bring an end to the fighting.

While former allies conspire to dethrone Paul and even his own consort acts against him, Paul accepts a gift from the Tleilaxu, a guild of genetic manipulators, hoping to find a single spark of peace and friendship amidst the betrayal and chaos. But this act undermines Paul's support from the Fremen, his own people. The Fremen are the true source of Paul's power; losing them is the one thing that could truly topple his empire.

As matters escalate, Paul will be forced to chose between his throne, his wife, his people and his future - and the future of the entire universe.

An epic novel of the cost of victory... and the price of war. is all that Dune was, and maybe a little more.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express

Firru . a dat nota:

Dune Messiah starts off a dozen years after the end of the first book in the Dune series. Paul is at the top of the world, but you know what they say- it's a long way down from the top. Paul might be in for a long fall. Paul's supernatural abilities do not grant him an easy way out of his problems. Quite on the contrary, Paul's divine statue creates a whole new set of moral issues for our hero. The sequel to Dune is quite different in tone, although the setting is just as fascinating as ever. There is a note of bitterness in this sequel that warms of dangers of ultimate power. ...“There are many degrees of sight and many degrees of blindness. What senses do we lack that we cannot see another world all around us?”
