An intriguing story filled with backstabbings, hidden agendas (goals), fragile alliances, and even awestruck moments of what's going on. It may require reading the same paragraph(s) again and again to see what's going on. But, if you are into character driven stories, then Heretics of Dune is a good addition to the Dune series written by Frank Herbert.

A very interesting addition to the Dune series. The political intrigue combined with fascinating sci-fi concepts is fascinating. Plus it features the awesome character Duncan Idaho.

This is a great book. It's confusing at times, but stay with it, because the end makes it all worthwhile.
