Children of Dune

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Dune, winner of both Hugo and Nebula Awards, was one of the most famous and acclaimed science fiction novels ever written. It was followed by Dune Messiah - and now, with Children of Dune, Frank Herbert has written a magnificent novel to conclude this epic series, Paul Atreides, who led the desert Fremen of Arrakis to political and religious dominance of the human galaxy, is gone, blinded by an atomic weapon, he followed the Fremen tradition and walked alone in the desert. His twin children, Leto and Ghanima, under the regency of his sister Alia, have succeeded him. But all is not well in the empire: a harsh tyranny has been established under the fanatical direction of the Fremen disciples. On Arrakis itself, much has changed. A slow ecological transformation has brought vast areas of greenery, and even stretches of open water. The sandworms, poisoned by the slightest trace of moisture, are increasingly scarce, and this threatens disaster for the planet's economy. Leto and Ghanima can see possible solutions, but they are more difficult than anything Paul has ever attempted. And there are further complications. There is the mysterious figure of the Preacher, a blind prophet come out of the desert, whom some claim to be Paul Atreides himself. And Alia, with access to the thoughts and memories of her ancestors, has fallen under the influence of the most malevolent of them all, the family's deadliest enemy, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen. In Children of Dune. Frank Herbert has constructed a vividly complex story. it provides a surprising, yet wholly fitting, climax to one of the greatest achievements in science fiction history. This 1976 hardback copy features the rare cover design. The ex-Barnsley library book has a protected cover over the sleeve, which has some marks and dogging, expected of it's age and of a frequently borrowed book. The hardback cover itself has creasing to its corners and edge of the spine from how it has been stored. The book contains library stamps, a library bar code and library borrowing sheet on the inside of the cover and inside cover page. The page block has turned brown and contains several darker brown marks and scratches, again expected of its age and being a frequently borrowed book, but the 444 pages themselves are clean. This issues and the fact that it is an extra library book have been reflected in the price.
