Publisher's Summary

Fifty-six hard years after the events of The Machine Crusade, after the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. 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. The war that has lasted many lifetimes will be decided in the apocalyptic Battle of Corrin.

In the greatest battle of 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 Maud'Dib in Frank Herbert's classic, Dune.

Don't miss other titles in the Dune series.

    "A Trilogy was just not enough"

    I was hesitant to start the first Dune book because it was kind of on the big side (over 23hrs) but HOOOOOOLY COW!!!! After having heard the first one, I immediately downloaded the two remaining books. Talk about crack for the ears. I listened to all three books in a row and now I am going through withdraw symptoms. I need more Dune books and I need them now dammit!!! Redwall is just not doing it for me after this series. Someone needs to tell Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson to get off of their lazy buts and start writing. As with the other two books, Scott Brick does an outstanding job reading. He kept my attention throughout all 75hrs of this series and that's because most people have trouble keeping my attention for more than 75 seconds.

    "Best of the trilogy"

    This installment takes off seemlessly from the Machine Crusade and is non-stop action. Highly recommended series.

    "Top Tive Of All Time"

    This book was absolutely fantastic and the best of the Dune prequels by far. I loved seeing the formation of the Harkonnen-Atredies feud and thought it was richly complex and superbly done. The birth of space folding and the Bene Gesserit were also executed fantastically. As I passed the halfway point I started limiting myself to only an hour a day, to make it last longer. Really, one my favorites of all time - and I'm pretty picky.

    "Weakest of the Trilogy"

    Of the 3 Machine Crusade books, this is by far the weakest. There's not a lot of intrigue or deeper philosophy or thought in this book. It's main function is to tie-up the trilogy, and put a neat bow on it. I was pretty impressed with his first 3 dune books... House Atreides, House Corino, and House Harkonnen, they embodied some of the spirit of his fathers books (though not as deep) but this book contains none of that. Basically this book details a wild series of battles.

    "conclusion of the machine jihad"

    I can finally see why both house Atreides and Harkonen fuel began. I was surprised by the origin of house corrino. The birth of the first navigator. Extremely ironic how Erasmus and vor swapped roles. they easeentially became what they accused the other of.

    "worth reading Great background information t what's in DUNE."

    Scott Brick and k. Anderson write well together. The Battle sets you up for reading DUNE.

    "Well done"

    Cadence and tone to help change characters. The performance keeps this multi story prong book quite enjoyable. Story is a bit flat.

    "Strong story, long, but good..."

    The trilogy is amazing as whole... I thought some parts of the ending were rushed a little, but I would recommend this anyone digs 'dune.' Don't expect Frank H, but the world he created. Good listening..
