Book Three in the Magnificent Dune Chronicles--the Bestselling Science Fiction Adventure of All Time Nine years ago Emperor Paul Muad'Dib disappeared into the desert wastelands of Arrakis. Now, his twin children--Leto and Ghanima Atreides--are being groomed to become Messiahs.

Frank Herbert's bestselling science fiction series of all time continues! In this third installment, the sand-blasted world of Arrakis has become green, watered and fertile. Old Paul Atreides, who led the desert Fremen to political and religious domination of the galaxy, is gone. But for the children of Dune, the very blossoming of their land contains the seeds of its own destruction. The altered climate is destroying the giant sandworms, and this in turn is disastrous for the planet's economy. Leto and Ghanima, Paul Atreides's twin children and his heirs, can see possible solutions—but fanatics begin to challenge the rule of the all-powerful Atreides empire, and more than economic disaster threatens...
