The Battle of Corrin Paperback
Part of the Legends of Dune series
The universal computer mind Omnius has retreated to its last stronghold, where it plots a devastating new strategy that could undo the victories of the Butlerian Jihad.
The surviving Titans are creating new lieutenants to do their will when at last they return to attack the human beings they once ruled.
In the years of peace too many of mankind have forgotten that their machine enemies never sleep.
But some have forgotten nothing - and learned from their triumphs.
The brilliant military commander Vorian Atreides, son of a Titan, has the gift of long life from his terrifying father and knows the machines' minds better than any man alive.
Norma Cenva, the genius inventor of humanity's best defences, dreams of new discoveries that will make man invincible. And on the windswept desert planet Arrakis, the power that can give them victory waits.
The authors of Prelude to Dune have written the triumphant climax to the history of the Dune universe: the story most eagerly anticipated by its readers.

Review by Eric_the_Hamster
Probably a good story in its own right (although not the sort of science fiction I would be attracted to). I was disappointed in these sequels written by Frank Herbert's son, because I was expecting Frank Herbert, which was probably not fair. If you are looking for a decent sf yarn involving space battles etc., then this is fine. However, if you are looking at the sophistication and multi layered stories of Frank Herbert, you won't find them here. I found the descriptions of genesis of various Dune concepts to be particularly wanting, contrived and disappointing.
Review by penwing
This whole series (Legends of Dune) was awful. Flat characterisations with only one characteristic. Twists to the plot with had no foreshadowing and made no sense. I only battled my way through because I had bought them. It's put me off the two authors.
