This week on Book Series Wednesday I’m covering the last book in the Dune series. It’s Sandworms of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson! Spoilers after the jump.
Plot Synopsis: As Sandworms of Dune begins, the passengers of the no-ship Ithaca continue their nearly two-decade search for a new home world for the Bene Gesserit, while Duncan Idaho evades the tachyon net of the old couple Daniel and Marty, now known to be thinking machine leaders Omnius and Erasmus. Among the inhabitants of the Ithaca are young gholas of Paul Atreides, Lady Jessica, and others.
Plot: The plot is good, but really doesn’t live up to the masterpiece that was the original book. That being said it was a decent plot, it just doesn’t live up to Frank Herbert’s legacy.
Characters: Erasmus is probably my favorite new character, while Duncan and Miles still are my favorite characters of the series. I do enjoy getting to see all the different characters come together in the final clashes.
Overall: It’s an ending, but not what could have been if Frank Herbert had been the one to write it.
