Scott's Review:
5 out of 5 stars on March 6, 2001

This was perhaps the most political of the books. Set after the death of the God Emperor of Dune, there doesn't really appear to be a central controlling power anymore, and we're left to see what has become of the 'little players' now that they're left to struggle for control. And, there are new elements, from the Scattering. Like all things Dune, you don't discover precisely what the Scattering was immediately, but you're left enough clues to figure it our for yourself.

More of the inner secrets of the Bene Tleilaxu are revealed, and the various monopolies that the groups had are finally lessened. In the end, it becomes more and apparent to me that all of human kind are the same, just trying to get at their goals by wildly different paths. I look forward to seeing how the universe of Dune concludes in the next book.
