Longtime collaborators Herbert and Anderson team up again in this much anticipated wrap-up of the original Dune cycle. A large cast scattered across the cosmos must be brought together so that the final, all-powerful Kwisatz Haderach may be revealed in the ultimate face-off between humankind and the machine empire ruled by the implacable Omnius. Though pacing is brisk and the infrequent action scenes crackle with tension, only two minor characters - gholas, who are young clones with restored memories, of Suk doctor Wellington Yueh and God-Emperor Leto II - acquire real depth.
