Sisterhood of Dune: Book One of the Schools of Dune Trilogy

It is eighty-three years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler took the name of Corrino and established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. Great changes are brewing that will shape and twist all of humankind.

The war hero Vorian Atreides has turned his back on politics and Salusa Secundus. The descendants of Abulurd Harkonnen Griffen and Valya have sworn vengeance against Vor, blaming him for the downfall of their fortunes. Raquella Berto-Anirul has formed the Bene Gesserit School on the jungle planet Rossak as the first Reverend Mother. The descendants of Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva have built Venport Holdings, using mutated, spice-saturated Navigators who fly precursors of Heighliners. Gilbertus Albans, the ward of the hated Erasmus, is teaching humans to become Mentats...and hiding an unbelievable secret.

The Butlerian movement, rabidly opposed to all forms of "dangerous technology," is led by Manford Torondo and his devoted Swordmaster, Anari Idaho. And it is this group, so many decades after the defeat of the thinking machines, which begins to sweep across the known universe in mobs, millions strong, destroying everything in its path.

Every one of these characters, and all of these groups, will become enmeshed in the contest between Reason and Faith. All of them will be forced to choose sides in the inevitable crusade that could destroy humankind forever....

I have read all the previous Herbert/Anderson Dune books, but I have not read any since 2011. I had forgotten how distracting the writing style is. I really like the story lines and of course the subject and I plan to read the next two books. Consulter l'avis complet

I really loved the original Dune books, and even enjoyed some of the first prequels, but I am starting to tire of the McDune series. The characters are hard to like - all of them are super obssessed ... Consulter l'avis complet

Table des matières

A quiet observer
History may remember me
Slavery can take many forms
The only good machine
Adaptability is the essence
One can draw
A storm in the desert
Practice can take

During the Jihad Rossak
It is a trivial thing
What one person sees as
Whether you see mankinds
From a tiny seed
Life If only
Looking backward may seem
