    More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in The Butlerian Jihad. The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years, but the forces led by Serena Butler and Irbis Ginjo have made only slight gains; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat. Get ready for Dune: The Machine Crusade.

    Overall

    This is a fine addition to the Dune series; however, it suffers a greater flaw than even its predecessor. The volume of repeated information is OBNOXIOUS!!!! If I hear that Zufa Sinva (sp?) is disappointed with Aurelius (sp?) and her daughter one more time, I am going to throw my iPod out of the window. That also goes for Teo Holtzman's frustration at not being the be-all-end-all of the science community. And also for Erasmus's repeated use of the word "curious" or its derivatives. This book gives one a headache at the continual feeling that you've heard it already. Shouldn't an editor have caught the ridiculous volume of repitition before publication? Good story- horrible editing. Curiously, the Arrakis and slave narration sections are the only parts which are over-ridden by these repeats.
