Publisher Comments:

A beautiful new package with a new introduction?

Millennia have passed on Arrakis, and the oncedesert planet is green with life. Leto Atreides, the son of the world?s savior, the Emperor Paul Muad?Dib, is still alive but far from human. To preserve humanity?s future, he sacrificed his own by merging with a sandworm, granting him nearimmortality as God Emperor of Dune for the past 3,500 years.

Leto?s rule is not a benevolent one. His transformation has not only made his appearance inhuman, but his morality. A rebellion has risen to oppose the despot?s rule, led by Siona, a member of the Atreides family. But Siona is unaware that Leto?s vision of a Golden Path for humanity requires her to fulfill a destiny she never wanted?or could possibly conceive?
