It has been fifty-six hard years since the events of The Machine Crusade. Following the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. Synchronized Worlds and Unallied Planets are liberated one by one, and at long last, after years of struggle, the human worlds begin to hope that the end of the centuries-long conflict with the thinking machines is finally in sight. Unfortunately, Omnius has one last, deadly card to play. In a last-ditch effort to destroy humankind, virulent plagues are let loose throughout the galaxy, decimating the populations of whole planets . . . and once again, the tide of the titanic struggle shifts against the warriors of the human race. At last, the war that has lasted many lifetimes will be decided in the apocalyptic Battle of Corrin. In the greatest battle in science fiction history, human and machine face off one last time. . . . And on the desert planet of Arrakis, the legendary Fremen of Dune become the feared fighting force to be discovered by Paul Muad’Dib in Frank Herbert’s classic, Dune.

Listener Opinions

    " The "Legends of Dune" series ends on an exciting note. Most of the stories flow well; others, like the lead up to the final battle for Corrin, are strangely boring in some places and rushed in others--there could have been more description in what I considered some exciting moments and less in the ones I considered boring ones. The book does explain the origins of the Fremen, the Bene Gesserit (but not the origin of their name), the Spacing Guild, and the three main houses who compete for power in the Dune series. I assumed these all came from Frank Herbert's notes, and it's good to know where they came from. But did we have to get this information in this less-than-stellar fiction? "

    " Book was good and interesting, it just took too long to get to the the climax. The Battle of Corrin, the name of the book and final battle, didn't even start to happen until there less than 100 pages left. Things didn't develop very well throughout the book and changes happened very fast and not gradually. It was a decent finish to the trilogy. Probably would have been better if I had taken a break between The Machine Crusade and this one. That's a lot of pages to read in a row. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 2/12/2014

    " Again, this ends up reading more like a history book for fans of the Dune universe. More than the other two books, though, this book seems to force certain plot revelations and pacing in order to fulfill the objective of setting the foundation for the later novels. Also, there is much less connection to all of the characters since most of the main ones are introduced in this novel (the book takes place decades after the end of the second one when most of those characters have died off). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Beliveau | 1/30/2014

    " If you lied the first two in this trilogy, this is a must. A little slow in once you get through the first part, but very important story telling to explain a larger story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 1/1/2014

    " All the seeds of what will become my beloved Duniverse are planted here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brock Pattison | 12/18/2013

    " Not nearly as good as Frank Herbert's original writings, but still a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ricco | 11/22/2013

    " The Dune Saga is a must read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dusty | 11/9/2013

    " Good story, but too many short explanations behind the world that Frank Herbert created. It was like reading a checklist of the how's and why's of the universe in Dune. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allen Petro | 10/31/2013

    " Finally the connections to the original are a little more apparent. Great finish to the Trilogy. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dufour | 7/15/2012

    " Avoid like the plague. Even worse than the prior two. Felt like having my colon examined with a tambourine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Birgitt Williams | 6/29/2012

    " I have read this book and all of the Dune series more than once, each time gaining new insights as I read and as I simultaneously understand more about life on earth. These books read as though the story is down-loaded, 'channeled'. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wood | 4/8/2012

    " Huge dune fan and this lived up to his father's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ghola | 4/1/2012

    " Overall, it was fun...but...it dragged a lot. I wasn't as attached to the characters as I am to the original Herbert series. If you take it based on its own merits...its ok. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 11/24/2011

    " Fails to live up to the original series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lychee | 11/1/2011

    " Really enjoyed getting more of the backstory on the origins of the Bene Gesserit, the Space Guild and the Navigators, and Mentats, each with an unexpected twist. Such a fascinating and rich universe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Codybo | 8/22/2011

    " Very good and exciting. Time consuming, but worth the effort. "

    " Long, I listened to this on audio and it took me forever. "

    " an interesting end, the best in this trilogy, but i wasn't overly impressed. the writing seemed a little uninspired, and didn't present many new ideas. "

    " at least better than the book before "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vincent | 3/9/2010

    " A little long winded, but a pretty good read. Didn't have the same atmosphere as the other Dune books, but still pretty good. "
