Waterstones Says

In the third book of Herbert's acclaimed Dune series, the sand-swept planet of Arrakis has turned fertile and green but in this new world Paul Atreides’ heirs find themselves faced with an economic catastrophe and a zealous uprising.

The epic that began with the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning classic Dune - now a major motion picture from the director of Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival - continues...

The sand-blasted world of Arrakis has become green, watered and fertile. Old Paul Atreides, who led the desert Fremen to political and religious domination of the galaxy, is gone.

But for the children of Dune, the very blossoming of their land contains the seeds of its own destruction. The altered climate is destroying the giant sandworms, and this in turn is disastrous for the planet's economy.

Leto and Ghanima, Paul Atreides's twin children and his heirs, can see possible solutions - but fanatics begin to challenge the rule of the all-powerful Atreides empire, and more than economic disaster threatens...

Read the series which inspired the 2021 Denis Villeneuve epic film adaptation, Dune, starring Oscar Isaac, Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya and Josh Brolin.

“Criminally Underated”

This one has a lot going on. It can be difficult at times to follow and understand some of the character's motives, but once the pieces fit together and the bigger picture becomes apparent, it's pretty sick.... More
