Review A fourth visit to Arrakis that is every bit as fascinating as the other threeevery bit as timely. _Time_ Rich fareHeady stuff. _Los Angeles Times_ Book Four of the Dune series has many of the same strengths as the previous three, and I was indeed kept up late at night. _Challenging Destiny_ Product Description More than three thousand years have passed since the first events recorded in DUNE. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species. But to achieve his final victory, Leto Atreides must also bring about his own downfall ...

I really have Stockholm Syndrome with these books lol. I haven‘t really thought any of the sequels were particularly good, but alas! I‘m too invested in the lore and charmed by Herbert‘s Known Universe to quit. An interlude… and then on to book 5.

The story overall is great, but significant problems do exist with the plot/characters. Leto II is supposed to be seen as good, yet most all of his actions-and reasons for them-are horrid things. His "path" didn't need all of his excess, yet he did so anyway. Similar issues plague other characters. Still, a very deep and fun read. If you liked the books in the series up to now, this should be a great read for you.

I ended the series on this book. It is may favorite of the four. Leto sees into the future and must carry out his Golden Path to save humanity while being scorned and plotted against by short sighted rebels.
