Review by markg80
It does a good job a tying the storylines together. The book starts a bit bland and predicatable, but it gets better later on. So read it if you read the previous books of the Dune universe. Don't read it if you didn't, you wouldn't understand the storylines anyway.
Review by Eruntane
I was highly gratified to be upheld in my opinion that Duncan Idaho is actually the most important character of the whole Dune saga. I couldn't help but feel, though, that this was a weak ending to such a behemoth of a series. It was too neat, and too saccharine. Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson didn't maintain the very cold atmosphere of the original books - part of their brilliance was the constant tension between the characters' desires and duties. Now we are left with no conflict at all, and since a good story relies on conflict, the whole thing fizzles out like a shrivelled balloon. I'm very happy for the characters in their final situations, and I'm very happy for myself that I don't have to read about them there.
