Review by DinadansFriend
We move to the second generation of the royal family of Dune, and I'm a little tired of the universe set up by Mr. Herbert. The Earlier books had much stronger characterisation, and the social system, a take-off on the system used by the Ottoman Empire on Earth, was interesting to explore. Unfortunately the ruts are now showing.
