"A holy war has made Paul Atreides the religious and political leader of a thousand planets. The malign sisterhood of the Bene Gesserit, unable to dominate the man they have made a god, set out to destroy him.
Paul, who is able to foresee the plans of his enemies, resolves to adapt and shape them to a goal that is as shocking as it is unexpected.
Dune Messiah - long-awaited successor to double award winner Dune - is an epic of imperial intrigue that spans the universe, rich and strange in its evocation of the history, institutions and people of a far future age."
