Today they were enduring another funeral for a dead Sister, one more tragic death from poison…another failure to create the second Reverend Mother.
Crisis. Survival. Advancement.
Raquella didn’t know how many more lives she could justify losing in order to reach the elusive goal. Optimistic and determined, her best trainees continued to believe in her.
And they died.
It is eighty-three years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler took the name of Corrino and established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. Great changes are brewing that will shape and twist all of humankind.
The war hero Vorian Atreides has turned his back on politics and Salusa Secundus. The descendants of Abulurd Harkonnen, Griffin and Valya, have sworn vengeance against Vor, blaming him for the downfall of their fortunes. Raquella Berto-Anirul has formed the Bene Gesserit School on the jungle planet Rossak as the first Reverend Mother. The descendants of Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva have built Venport Holdings, using mutated, spice-saturated Navigators who fly precursors of Heighliners. Gilbertus Albans, the ward of the hated robot Erasmus, is teaching humans to become Mentats . . . and hiding an unbelievable secret.
The Butlerian movement, rabidly opposed to all forms of “dangerous techn0logy,” is led by Manford Torondo and his devoted Swordmaster, Anari Idaho. And it is this group, so many decades after the defeat of the thinking machines, which begins to sweep across the known universe in mobs, millions strong, destroying everything in its path.
All these factions and individuals will become enmeshed in the contest between Reason and Faith. Everyone will be forced to choose sides in the inevitable crusade that could destroy humankind forever. . . .
SISTERHOOD OF DUNE will be in bookstores in January.
Call it a loss-leader. Or a glitch. Or over-enthusiastic lowest-price-matching bots having a duel between bookstores. Whatever the reason, amazon is having a ridiculous sale on my novel HELLHOLE with Brian Herbert. The novel—new, hardcover, first editions—is selling for only $1.77 (and free shipping if you’re an amazon Prime customer).
Order here for $1.77 That’s a savings of 93%. If you enjoyed our Dune books, or if you have anyone who likes epic science fiction on your holiday gift list, you can’t beat the price.
Only the most desperate colonists dare to make a new home on Hellhole. Reeling from a recent asteroid impact, tortured with horrific storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and churning volcanic eruptions, the planet is a dumping ground for undesirables, misfits, and charlatans…but also a haven for dreamers and independent pioneers.
Against all odds, an exiled general named Adolphus has turned Hellhole into a place of real opportunity for the desperate colonists who call the planet their home. While the colonists are hard at work developing the planet, General Adolphus secretly builds alliances with the leaders of the other Deep Zone worlds, forming a clandestine coalition against the tyrannical, fossilized government responsible for their exile.
What no one knows is this: the planet Hellhole, though damaged and volatile, hides an amazing secret. Deep beneath its surface lies the remnants of an obliterated alien civilization and the buried memories of its unrecorded past that, when unearthed, could tear the galaxy apart.
Brian and I have written, and are polishing, the second novel in the trilogy, HELLHOLE AWAKENING
