Herbert, Frank: Dune Messiah

Book Two in the Magnificent Dune Chronicles—the Bestselling Science Fiction Adventure of All Time

Dune Messiah continues the story of Paul Atreides, better known—and feared—as the man christened Muad’Dib. As Emperor of the known universe, he possesses more power than a single man was ever meant to wield. Worshipped as a religious icon by the fanatical Fremen, Paul faces the enmity of the political houses he displaced when he assumed the throne—and a conspiracy conducted within his own sphere of influence.

And even as House Atreides begins to crumble around him from the machinations of his enemies, the true threat to Paul comes to his lover, Chani, and the unborn heir to his family’s dynasty...Praise for Dune Messiah

“Brilliant...it is all that Dune was, and maybe a little more.”—Galaxy Magazine
 
“The perfect companion piece to Dune...fascinating.”—Challenging Destiny

Praise for Dune

“I know nothing comparable to it except Lord of the Rings.”—Arthur C. Clarke
 
“A portrayal of an alien society more complete and deeply detailed than any other author in the field has managed...a story absorbing equally for its action and philosophical vistas.”—The Washington Post Book World

“One of the monuments of modern science fiction.”—Chicago Tribune

“Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious.”—Robert A. Heinlein
 
“Herbert’s creation of this universe, with its intricate development and analysis of ecology, religion, politics and philosophy, remains one of the supreme and seminal achievements in science fiction.”—Louisville Times
