Publisher's Summary

Fifty-six hard years after the events of The Machine Crusade, after the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. The human worlds begin to hope that the end of the centuries-long conflict with the thinking machines is finally in sight.

Unfortunately, Omnius has one last, deadly card to play. In a last-ditch effort to destroy humankind, virulent plagues are let loose throughout the galaxy, decimating the populations of whole planets. The war that has lasted many lifetimes will be decided in the apocalyptic Battle of Corrin.

In the greatest battle of science fiction history, human and machine face off one last time....And on the desert planet of Arrakis, the legendary Fremen of Dune become the feared fighting force to be discovered by Paul Maud'Dib in Frank Herbert's classic, Dune.

Struggled to finish

I struggled to finish this one. The last few hours were a slog. I found myself rolling my eyes, shaking my head and flat out groaning in some places. Most of the plot felt forced. At least you will know how the universe got its start.

great finale to the Jihad

I thoroughly enjoyed the Jihad trilogy. sure, it's not the same as Frank's work but I feel it does the universe justice and injects more lore into a great universe. highly recommended

What…. Garbage

Thats the conclusion? Lol this actually makes me want to quit fiction all together.. just laser the holtsmen shield surrounding Corrin, plant destroyed bye bye thinking machines. Why even have the caveat that lasering the shields causes a ridiculously large explosion if not for this ending? Not really utilized anywhere else in the books…. Ooooh a small battle with the symeks.. to listen to 3 like 24 hour long books to get trolled like this at the end is bullshit, fuck u herbert

Great for a fan

Love to learn more about the universe. It was worth my time. I’m not sure it would standalone, if you weren’t a dune fan, it might be pretty boring.

Provides good insight of what's to come

I enjoyed it, it was interesting as the previous in the dune sage. However, the end seems a little rushed and simplistic. (e.g. how Agamemnon was killed). The end gives a sneak peak of the origin of some dynamics.

book error

a pronominal story, but the first part of the book is mislabeled as "69 BG", when it actually takes place in 109 BG.

OTHER THAN THAT, a great listen with great narration and story.

People don't feel human and make stupid decisions.

It started alright, but the further it went, the weirder things got

It felt like the people in this story became dumb and it was infuriating to listen to.
I swear, near the end, it was easier to relate to the "bad guys" At least, their goal made more senses

I don't want to spoil anything
Let's just say the Surprised Pikachu meme, fits it very well.

Final showdown between man and machine

This novel tied up all the events from this particular trilogy.
I felt that previous book was better than this, however, this novel was well done.

Continuing 20 yrs after the events of the previous novel, the army of the Jihad has become complacent with Omnious and his Machine army trapped on Corrin.
Humanity is moving past the Jihad while Supreme Bashar Vorian Atreides tries to persuade the League of Nobels to finish off the machines for good, including the rebellious Titans and Neo-cymek's.
Abalurd Harkonnen strives to bring honor back to his grandfather and his family name.
Rena Buttler's gathering of Machine hating fanatics has grown large enough to affect political structures.
Venkee Enterprises continues to strive forward to fix the fold space navigation problem.
The Sorceress' of Rossak face their upmost trials and tribulations.
In addition, Ishmael finally comes to understand his old friend Alid as he battles with overwhelming changes occurring on Arrakis.
Ever curious Erasmus also makes huge leaps and bounds with his understanding of humanity.

Overall I waa thrilled to learn of these multi planetary events that had such drastic ramifications on humanity leading towards how the galactic is set for the original Dune saga.
