He's well-known for his prolific rate he is certainly an adherent of quantity over quality and doesn't even write books, he "dictahikes" them Brian Herbert has stated himself he is a very slow writer, so coupled with the fact that they've been churning these books out at roughly 1 per year and it becomes clear that Brian's name is first on the covers mainly to attempt and give them some credibility among Dune and Frank Herbert fans.
Most fans accept that Brian probably acts more as an editor and idea contributor. It's also suspected that Kevin J.
Anderson initiated these projects since Brian has been on record for years as stating he didn't want to tamper with his father's work, and in recent years Anderson has been the main, if not only, public face of these Dune books. Anyway, on to the story. I won't give too much away, but this is supposed to be part one of Dune 7 and in reality, it's incredibly boring and could have been cut in half.
Where Frank Herbert would not waste time detailing every minute and inconsequential thing and leave the reader to fill in the gaps for themselves, BH and KJA feel the need to spell out every meaningless thing; for example, the New Sisterhood hops around the galaxy fighting the Honored Matres holdouts As is their habit of writing multiple short chapters I could go on and on, but it's pretty annoying to have to think about it all again after reading it.
The characters are wooden, two-dimensional, and don't act or speak anything like they did in the previous books.
The dialogue is very lame and simplistic, and when it tries to get deep and meaningful, it fails miserably. How many bloody times can they use the word "esoteric" in this book? Plot[ edit ] For three years, the no-ship named the Ithaca by its passengers has been in an alternate universe, carrying the gholas of Duncan Idaho and the famous military commander Miles Teg as well as the Bene Gesserit Sheeana, who has the mysterious power to control sandworms.
The mysterious Oracle of Time speaks to Duncan and brings the no-ship back into the 'regular' universe. However, it is soon discovered by the mysterious "old man and old woman", Daniel and Marty , first mentioned at the end of Chapterhouse Dune, who have unknown designs on the Ithaca and its passengers.
The no-ship is nearly caught in their tachyon net , but escapes using the space-folding Holtzman engines. Meanwhile, Murbella is trying to prevent civil war on Chapterhouse, the only known source of melange left in the universe. She meets an emissary sent by the Spacing Guild , which is desperate for spice.
Murbella refuses their requests due to the help the Guild gave to the Honored Matres, and demands the Guild's future loyalty, threatening to cut them off completely. Unbeknownst to the Guild delegation and the rest of the universe, the sandworms on Chapterhouse are not yet producing much melange; the Bene Gesserit are making it seem so, using their own stockpiles.
Supposedly under their complete control are their improved Face Dancers , creatures who can mimic other humans exactly and go undetected by all known means. It is soon revealed that the Face Dancers have their own will and motives, as they kill the Tleilaxu Elder Burah and replace him with their own duplicate.
They have now replaced all the Lost Tleilaxu Elders, as well as countless humans on various planets in the Old Empire. Their leader Khrone sends the scribe Uxtal presumably the highest-ranking, if only, Lost Tleilaxu left alive to serve the renegade Honored Matre leader Hellica , who has proclaimed herself Matre Superior and now rules the conquered Bene Tleilax homeworld, Tleilax.
Hunters of Dune
The desperate Spacing Guild Administrators go to Ix to find an alternative to the use of their own Navigators who require spice for space travel. While carefully executing his own plans for Face Dancer domination of the universe, Khrone is doing the bidding of Daniel and Marty by offering their advanced navigation technology to the Guild as if it were of Ixian design.
The Guild agrees to the development of this technology if they have a monopoly on it.
Uxtal has been forced to use Tleilaxu axlotl tank technology to produce the adrenaline -enhancing drug used by Honored Matres. Khrone also tasks Uxtal to make a ghola from recently found cell samples, which turn out to be those of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen. From the start, the young Baron is as sociopathic as the original.
Later, Khrone obtains the blood of Paul Atreides from a religious relic on the Atreides homeworld once known as Caladan , and has Uxtal make a ghola of Paul. He plans to twist this Kwisatz Haderach ghola using the Baron Harkonnen ghola into a weapon for Daniel and Marty's conquest of the universe.

Later, the Guild Navigator Edrik comes to Tleilax seeking Uxtal's knowledge of axlotl tanks; the Navigator fears his kind's obsolescence when the Ixian navigation technology becomes available. He seeks an alternate source of spice to break the Bene Gesserit monopoly, but even Uxtal believes that secret has died with the Tleilaxu Masters murdered by the Honored Matres.
Eventually he is able to access the genetic material of deceased Master Waff , and through an accelerated process creates several ultimately flawed Waff gholas, hoping to unlock the secret of producing melange in the tanks.
The entire universe is unaware that in the events of Chapterhouse Dune, Scytale had been forced to give the passengers of the Ithaca the secret, and it was in use on the no-ship as their primary source of spice. The Tleilaxu had always sustained their lives indefinitely through the use of gholas; now Scytale's current body is slowly dying, and he does not have another to replace it.
Needing to grow a new ghola of himself, he has only one secret to use as a bargaining tool: a hidden nullentropy capsule containing cells carefully and secretly collected by the Tleilaxu for millennia, including the cells of Tleilaxu Masters, Face Dancers, Paul Atreides, Duke Leto Atreides , Lady Jessica , Chani , Stilgar , Leto Atreides II , Gurney Halleck , Thufir Hawat , and even legendary figures dating back to the Butlerian Jihad , including Serena Butler and Xavier Harkonnen.
The Bene Gesserit have a vicious debate over whether to create gholas of any of these historical figures.

Sheeana believes they may prove useful, while others fear the return of such 'mistakes' as Leto II. Despite the controversy, gholas are created, a few at a time.
Scytale is allowed to have his own once the first few have been born. Her ' Valkyries ' attack the rebel Honored Matre strongholds on other planets with success, in the process discovering that some of the Honored Matres are Face Dancers in disguise, undetectable until death. A former Honored Matre herself, Murbella eventually accesses the Other Memory from her Honored Matre ancestors, and learns their true origins.Anderson - Hunters of Dune.
Welcome to our blog!
There is a difference between being a good writer, and being a good storyteller. In a final assault on Tleilax, the most powerful of the rebel Honored Matre strongholds, Murbella and her Valkyries are victorious.
I almost stopped reading after the first few chapters but I simply had to know what Frank Herbert intended with the story, even though he didn't get to execute it. Check out my other reviews. The Bene Gesserit have a vicious debate over whether to create gholas of any of these historical figures.
Fixing a crysknife is explained as "keyed to the body of the owner so it would dissolve upon his death" in this book. This document, although penned and created by Frank Herbert, has now seemingly been presented by the two as a streamlined book written by Irulan Corrino Atreides.
