Dune Messiah is a science fiction novel by Frank Herbert, published in 1969, and the second book set in the Dune universe. The story is set 12 years after the end of the first book. Paul "Muad'Dib" Atreides is now Emperor of the universe and the messiah of the Fremen whose might and reverence he used to overthrow the universe through jihad. However, by becoming a mythical figure, Paul is now powerless to stop the religious violence done in his name.

The events of Dune Messiah, along with Children of Dune were incorporated into the Children of Dune miniseries.

Being a big fan of the first book, I decided to read the second.

I'm currently listening to an audio book recording.

Review

Good

Bad

  • Far too much of the book is about rather dull conversations between the two factions where they plot how to defeat the others.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
