Book Trailer: ‘Sisterhood of Dune’ by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

It is eighty-three years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler took the name of Corrino and established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. 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 Griffen and Valya 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 descendants of Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva 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.

The Butlerian movement, rabidly opposed to all forms of “dangerous technology,” is led by Manford Torondo and his devoted Swordmaster, Anari Idaho. And it is this group, so many decades after the defeat of the thinking machines, which begins to sweep across the known universe in mobs, millions strong, destroying everything in its path.

Every one of these characters, and all of these groups, will become enmeshed in the contest between Reason and Faith. All of them will be forced to choose sides in the inevitable crusade that could destroy humankind forever….

Here’s the trailer…

And here’s another Sneak Preview of Sisterhood of Dune — chapter 2.

  1. No.

  2. When will these guys stop? They have utterly corrupted the work and legacy of one of our greatest and most prescient speculative fiction authors.  And, Brian Herbert should never be allowed near a keyboard again, ever.


    So, what PaulNYC said.

  3. I’m almost upset that this was even posted!  Why give Brian Herbert more press when he continues to destroy the series?

  4. Brian and Kevin are blowing it.  Such a wonderful back-story to explore and they waste most of the pages repeating themselves.

  5. I agree with everyone else.  Dune is one of only two books I have read multiple times and these two are making a mockery of the universe and the quality of the original novel.  However, all the blame shouldn’t fall on Brian Herbert.  Have you read anything else by Kevin J. Anderson?  Don’t bother, it’s terrible.  Both are at fault for destroying the Dune legacy.
