Summary


"Dune: The Battle of Corrin"
It has been fifty-six hard years since the events of "The Machine Crusade." Following the death of Serena Butler, the bloodiest decades of the Jihad take place. Synchronized Worlds and Unallied Planets are liberated one by one, and at long last, after years of struggle, 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 . . . and once again, the tide of the titanic struggle shifts against the warriors of the human race. At last, the war that has lasted many lifetimes will be decided in the apocalyptic Battle of Corrin.
In the greatest battle in 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 Muad'Dib in Frank Herbert's classic, "Dune."

Library Journal Review

It's 56 years later in this sequel to Dune: The Machine Crusade, and humanity has begun to push back the widespread control of the thinking machines. The once mighty Titans have been destroyed save for Juno and Agamemnon. The evermind Omnius makes a last-ditch effort to conquer the humans by developing a plague that attacks with devastating suddenness and deadly results. Relentlessly, the struggle rages across the universe until the concluding battle at the machines' final stronghold at the planet of Corrin, where Vorian Atreides, Supreme Bashar of the Army of Humanity, must make a heartrending decision that will cost him dearly. Scott Brick is an excellent reader; even his robots have personality and individuality. Any library holding the other Dune titles should consider this a required purchase for its sf collection.-Nancy Reed, McCracken Cty. P.L., Paducah, KY (c) Copyright 2010.
