Publisher Comments:

Children of Dune brings the best-selling science-fiction series of all time to a breathtaking climax. This third installment finds the desert planet Arrakis in a state of unprecedented stability and prosperity. With the Herculean efforts of the Imperium, it has begun to grow green and lush. The life-giving spice is abundant, and the nine-year-old royal twins are coming into their own. Possessed of their father's supernormal powers, they are being groomed as Messiahs. But there are those who think the Imperium does not need omnipotent rulers. And they'll stop at nothing to make their point.

About the Author

Frank Herbert (1920-1986) created the most beloved novel in the annals of science fiction, Dune. He was a man of many facets, of countless passageways that ran through an intricate mind. His magnum opus is a reflection of this, a classic work that stands as one of the most complex, multi-layered novels ever written in any genre. Today the novel is more popular than ever, with new readers continually discovering it and telling their friends to pick up a copy. It has been translated into dozens of languages and has sold almost 20 million copies.
