Product description

Synopsis
The breathtaking vision and incomparable storytelling of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson's Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, a prequel to Frank Herbert's classic Dune, propelled it to the ranks of speculative fiction's classics in its own right. Now, with all the color, scope, and fascination of the prior novel, comes Dune: The Machine Crusade. More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in The Butlerian Jihad. The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years, but the forces led by Serena Butler and Irbis Ginjo have made only slight gains; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat. The fearsome cymeks, led by Agamemnon, hatch new plots to regain their lost power from Omnius--as their numbers dwindle and time begins to run out. The fighters of Ginaz, led by Jool Noret, forge themselves into an elite warrior class, a weapon against the machine-dominated worlds. Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva are on the verge of the most important discovery in human history-a way to "fold" space and travel instantaneously to any place in the galaxy. And on the faraway, nearly worthless planet of Arrakis, Selim Wormrider and his band of outlaws take the first steps to making themselves the feared fighters who will change the course of history: the Fremen. Here is the unrivaled imaginative power that has put Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson on bestseller lists everywhere and earned them the high regard of readers around the globe. The fantastic saga of Dunecontinues in Dune: The Machine Crusade.

A great sequel to a great book.

Created: 06/12/09
This book is totally engrossing. It will keep your attention throughout the whole novel. Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson are amazing authors. They aren't the same as Frank Herbert, they don't write the same way, but they write in a similar fashion that is all their own, but incorporates some of the older Herbert's stuff. I HIGHLY recommend this and the Butlerian Jihad to any Dune fan. The story is not slow at all. However, about half way through, you do get a feeling like hurry up and finish this thing! But, the authors drag you back into the story with some convincing stuff, so that you feel that you should finish this book, then go out and get the third one, which I'm going to do now.

Book for the Science Fiction Fans or the Dune Lovers

Created: 29/05/08
This is big fat book for the people who like the Dune series. The book is actually 700 pages long including the appendix. It is all reading there are no pictures in it. The book itself is black with silver writing. This book is a sequel to the butlerian jihad.
Hope you find this helpful. Thanks.

The book continues the story of the first book, Dune: The Butlerian Jihad. So it's best to read that book before reading Dune: The Machine Crusade.

The book has ALOT of characters, and they all connect with each other at one point.

Overall, a good book for science fiction fans.
