    The sand-blasted world of Arrakis has become green, watered, and fertile. Old Paul Atreides, who led the desert Fremen to political and religious domination of the galaxy, is gone. But for the children of Dune, the very blossoming of their land contains the seeds of its own destruction. The altered climate is destroying the giant sandworms, and this in turn is disastrous for the planet's economy.

    More than 3,000 years have passed since the first events recorded in Dune. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species.

    Arrakis è il pianeta più inospitale della galassia. Una landa di sabbia e rocce popolata da mostri striscianti e sferzata da tempeste devastanti. Ma sulla sua superficie cresce il melange, la sostanza che dà agli uomini la facoltà di aprire i propri orizzonti mentali, conoscere il futuro, acquisire le capacità per manovrare le immense astronavi che garantiscono gli scambi tra i mondi e la sopravvivenza stessa dell'Impero. Sul saggio Duca Leto, della famiglia Atreides, ricade la scelta dell'Imperatore per la successione ai crudeli Harkonnen al governo dell'ambito pianeta.

    Katsuk, a militant Native American student, has kidnapped 13-year-old David Marshall - the son of the US undersecretary of state. He and his young hostage flee into the deepest wilds of the Pacific Northwest, where they must work together to survive as teams of hunters try to track them. Even as he struggles to escape, David begins to feel a certain amount of respect for his captor. What the boy does not know, however, is that he has been chosen as an innocent from the white world for an ancient sacrifice of vengeance. And Katsuk may be divinely inspired - or simply insane.
