Eighty-three years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, 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 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 descendents of Aurelius Venport have built Venport Holdings, using mutated, spice-saturated Navigators who fly precursors of Heighliners. Gilbertus Albans, the ward of the hated Erasmus, is teaching humans to become Mentats…and hiding an unbelievable secret. And the Butlerian movement—rabidly opposed to all forms of “dangerous technology”—is beginning to sweep across the known universe, destroying everything in its path.
As Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson’s Sisterhood of Dune unfolds, every one of these characters, and all of these groups, will become enmeshed in the contest between Reason and Faith. And they will all be forced to choose sides in the inevitable crusade that could destroy humankind forever....

Of all the Dune prequels, "Sisterhood of Dune" has to be the best of the bunch.
Writing was a little heavy at times. Had to plow through it. Will give the next book in the series one more chance.
This book was great. Frank would be proud.
Can't wait for the NEXT book!
This would be the second book of the series I have read after the original. Just enough info and teasers to inspire me to read the other books in the series.Hopefully just the beginning of a great series. Would like to see some loose ends wrapped up.
an excellent entry in the greatest sf series ever
