Blurb: 
"Amazon Reader Remarks: (by Joanna Daneman) The first Dune novel was such a phenomenon that it was difficult for Frank Herbert to achieve the same level when he continued the series. Book Two (Dune Messiah) had the aspect of a Greek tragedy, pitting Paul Atreides against his sister Alia, who became possessed by the spirit of the evil Baron Harkonnen. The death-and-destruction ending of Book Two made for a darker, less optimistic feeling and disappointed many Dune fans. Book Three, however, regained the exciting tone of Book One. Here, the children of Paul and Chani assert their unusual powers, the result of centuries of breeding for super-humans by the Bene Gesserit. But don"t count out House Corrino, the house of the defeated Emperor Shaddam. They are back to conspire some more against House Atreides. And a more evil enemy lurks in the future. This book has all the excitement of Dune, but is more focused on the Atreides children and what they are to become. It is a very thrilling science fiction novel, and not to be missed if you love Frank Herbert and ""Dune."" "
