It is eighty-Three years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler took the name of Corrino and established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. Great changes are brewing that will shape and twist all of humankind. The war hero Vorian Atreides has turned his back on politics and Salusa Secundus. The descendants of Abulurd Harkonnen Griffen and Valya have sworn vengeance against Vor, blaming him for the downfall of their fortunes. Raquella Berto-Anirul has formed the Bene Gesserit School on the jungle planet Rossak as the first Reverend Mother. The descendants of Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva have built Venport Holdings, using mutated, spice-saturated Navigators who fly precursors of Heighliners. Gilbertus Albans, the ward of the hated Erasmus, is teaching humans to become Mentats…and hiding an unbelievable secret. The Butlerian movement, rabidly opposed to all forms of “dangerous technology,” is led by Manford Torondo and his devoted Swordmaster, Anari Idaho. And it is this group, so many decades after the defeat of the thinking machines, which begins to sweep across the known universe in mobs, millions strong, destroying everything in its path.

In Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's Sisterhood of Dune, every one of these characters, and all of these groups, will become enmeshed in the contest between Reason and Faith. All of them will be forced to choose sides in the inevitable crusade that could destroy humankind forever….

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] fun blend of space opera and dynastic soap opera…zips along faster than light…The narrative is broken into short, jazzy chapters studded with familiar names like Atreides, Harkonnen, and Arrakis that will grab the attention of longtime Dune fans.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “With their useful fidelity to the vision of the late Frank Herbert, coauthors Herbert and Anderson continue to illuminate heretofore hidden areas of the Dune time line. Fully realized characters and intricate plotting will put this title high on fans’ to-read list.”

    Library Journal

  • “Characters and plot are thus beautifully set up, the timing is precise....The universe conceived by Frank Herbert is so vast, complex, and fascinating that the magic lingers.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kumar | 2/14/2014

    " I love the Dune series. Brian Herbert is now testing how much he can milk the story. Disappointing book only mildly interesting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Tom Gorski | 2/2/2014

    " Frank Herbert's son Brian and his writing partner have done a fine job of adding prequel, sequel and interquel to the original six volumns of Dune. This "interquel" is for readers who know the Dune story and does a reasonable job of filling in and expanding upon original themes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Anna | 1/22/2014

    " although I can't say it's Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's best work, it has left me wanting to know more about the schools of Dune "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Candace | 1/12/2014

    " I truly enjoyed reading this one, and I think it's the best of the prequels since the Legends of Dune trilogy. The only "bad" thing is having to wait for the next prequel. "
