Product Overview

From the Publisher:
From Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson comes the spectacular conclusion to their Legends of Dune trilogy (The Butlerian Jihad and The Machine Crusade), an epic saga that takes place 10,000 years before the events in Frank Herbert's classic Dune.

As the brutal galactic war between humans and the thinking machines (led by the evermind Omnius Prime) drags on, the robotic forces of the Synchronized worlds try a new technique to wipe out their carbon-based enemies. A highly contagious plague is bio-engineered and covertly sent to several League planets, where it is released into the atmosphere. Within months, billions of humans are dead or dying. As medical experts rush to find a cure for the mysterious scourge, Omnius gathers together all of its robotic fleet -- hundreds of thousands of warships -- and, in a risky endgame move, launches them all at the League's capital planet.

But because of new space-folding technology that allows ships to travel from one point to another almost instantaneously, Omnius's plans are fatefully uncovered, and the humans launch their own desperate offensive. Led by Varian Atreides, the League forces arm their space-folding ships with atomics in hopes of nuking the more than 500 now unprotected Synchronized worlds. The last planet on the list is Corrin, the stronghold of Omnius Prime and its minions of demon machines...

The Legends of Dune trilogy (especially The Battle of Corrin and its colossal battle sequence, arguably the greatest in the history of the science fiction genre) will absolutely blow readers away. These novels -- which masterfully explain the beginnings of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, the Order of Mentats, the Spacing Guild, and the irreparable rift between the House Atreides and House Harkonnen -- are a must-read for any Dune fan. Like Frank Herbert's original Dune novels, these three prequels are destined to become classics. Paul Goat Allen

Annotation This epic work of SF wraps up the Legends of Dune trilogy, a set of prequels to the late Frank Herbert's classic novel DUNE. After a century-long war with the thinking machines and their leader, the computer Omnius, the human Army of the Jihad is on the verge of triumph when Omnius makes a desperate attempt to exterminate its enemy through a series of diseases engineered by a captive, vengeful human geneticist. Longtime series fans, take note: the bitter feud between House Harkonnen and House Atreides--key to the plotline of the original DUNE--has its genesis in this book.
Editors Note Following their internationally bestselling novels Dune: The Butlerian Jihad and Dune: The Machine Crusade, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson forge a final tumultuous finish to their prequels to Frank Herbert's Dune.It has been fifty-six hard years since the events of The Machine Crusade. Following the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. Synchronized Worlds and Unallied Planets are liberated one by one, and at long last, after years of victory, 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 . . . and once again, the tide of the titanic struggle shifts against the warriors of the human race. At last, the war that has lasted many lifetimes will be decided in the apocalyptic Battle of Corrin.In the greatest battle in 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 Muad'Dib in Frank Herbert's classic, Dune.
