From Dune to Rakis to Dune, the wheel turns full circle. From burning desert to green and fertile land and on again to burning desert... the cycle is complete.
The people of the Scattering are returning. Amongst them, mysterious and threatening, are the women who call themselves the Honoured Matres, adepts of an ecstatic cult.
And on Rakis, become Dune, an ancient prophecy is fulfilled with the coming of the she-sheer, Sheeana...
Franklin Patrick Herbert, Jr. (1920–1986) was a critically acclaimed and commercially successful American science fiction author. Though also a short story author, he is best known for his novels, most notably Dune and its five sequels. The Dune saga, set in the distant future and taking place over millennia, deals with themes such as human survival and evolution, ecology, and the intersection of religion, politics and power. Dune itself is the "best-selling science fiction novel of all time," and the series is widely considered to be among the classics in the genre.

Heretics of Dune is a bad and horrible science fiction book. It's definitely one of the worst books I've ever read. I didn't think it was possible to write something as bad as God Emperor of Dune, but obviously (and unfortunately) it was possible. I can give Heretics of Dune only one star, because it doesn't deserve more stars. In my opinion this series should've ended after Children of Dune, because the other books are unnecessary sequels.
