The long-established galactic order is passing. The Honoured Matres, ruthless and all-conquering, have destroyed the planet Dune. In opposition, hard-pressed but still fighting back, the Bene Gesserit sisterhood co-ordinate their resistance from their as-yet undiscovered home world, Chapter House.
Now as a new Scattering is planned, they still have one carefully nurtured asset: the sandworms, offspring of the only giant worm salvaged from Dune.
Chapter House is to about to turn into a barren wasteland: Chapter House will be the new Dune.
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.

I know that some people like and praise the sequels of Dune as much as they can, but I don't praise them. The last books of the Dune saga are simply horrible and disgusting science fiction books, which have nothing to do with the high quality of the first book. Chapterhouse: Dune is a disappointing conclusion to the Dune saga. I didn't like this book at all. In my opinion it's pure trash from start to finish. If you like the first Dune book and the early sequels, you probably shouldn't read this book. I think you'll be very disappointed, if you try to read it.
