The Muad'Dib's jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies - those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands. Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders: Am I going mad?

Good Filler

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Yes, this book is just filler and yes you could go from Dune straight to Dune Messiah but you will be missing a very good story. There are no nail-biting revelations, Paul of Dune just allows you to have more time with the characters that you have come to love and hate.
