Dune: The Battle of Corrin: Book Three of the Legends of Dune Trilogy. Dune: The Machine Crusade: Book Two of the Legends of Dune Trilogy. His son, Brian Herbert, took over and finished out the series and began filling out the universe his father created using his notes and original drafts. As such, "The Butlerian Jihad" is not up to the same standards of quality. There are some truly cringeworthy and groan-inducing lines of dialogue and prose in this one, and early on it reads like an overly ambitious young-adult novel.

Throughout, key revelations regarding the Zensunni Wanderers and their fight for freedom and other historical Dune elements lend an air of discovery to this fast-paced tale. Based upon notes left by Frank Herbert, Dune: The Battle of Corrin is the last of a three-part series of books written by Brian Herbert and Kevin J.

The Battle of Corrin book. Anderson are serious works of writing, that much is obvious. They are trashy SF books at best, completely lacking the sophisticated philosophical and moral scope of Dune Universe created by Frank Herbert. That being said, the first two are at least readable. This one- not so much.

The Battle of Corrin (88 BG) was a space battle from which the Imperial House Corrino took its name. It was fought near Sigma Draconis and settled the ascendancy of the ruling House from Salusa Secundus. Bashar Abulurd Harkonnen was accused of cowardice by an Atreides and exiled, this event started the feud between House Harkonnen and House Atreides which would last for almost ten-thousand years.

Brian Herbert After that trilogy, we wrote the Legends of Dune-The Butlerian Jihad, The Machine Crusade, and The Battle of Corrin-which introduced the seminal conflicts and events that form the foundations of the whole.

A dedicated publisher and perceptive businessman, Tom is a longtime Dune fan and was a good friend to Frank Herbert. After that trilogy, we wrote the Legends of Dune-The Butlerian Jihad, The Machine Crusade, and The Battle of Corrin-which introduced the seminal conflicts and events that form the foundations of the whole Dune universe. Indisputably, Frank Herbert was a genius. Dune is the best-selling and most beloved science fiction novel of all time.

The universal computer mind Omnius has retreated to its last stronghold, where it plots a devastating new strategy that could undo the victories of the Butlerian Jihad. The surviving Titans are creating new lieutenants to do their will when at last they return to attack the human beings they once ruled. In the years of peace too many of mankind have forgotten that their machine enemies never sleep. But some have forgotten nothing - and learned from their triumphs. The brilliant military commander Vorian Atreides, son of a Titan, has the gift of long life from his terrifying father and knows the machines' minds better than any man alive. Norma Cenva, the genius inventor of humanity's best defences, dreams of new discoveries that will make man invincible. And on the windswept desert planet Arrakis, the power that can give them victory waits. The authors of Prelude to Dune have written the triumphant climax to the history of the Dune universe: the story most eagerly anticipated by its readers.

I enjoyed this series overall, but I'm a bit disappointed in many parts of them.

First, by trying to explain everything from the original Dune series, it removes the mystery which made those books so great. I think its more interesting to not know why Harkonens hate Atriedes. Or where the BG came from.

Finally the antagonists of this series are ridiculous. Why would a machine need to conquer human worlds? They could survive anywhere, why not leave humans to the worlds they can live on? Makes no sense. The antagonists are basically anthropomorphised. Why a machine would be driven by animalistic human emotions like revenge and anger is beyond me seeing as they have no hormones or animalistic brain parts. Like I said, makes no sense.

To the authors' credit they do touch on these issues. They explain in passing why the machines don't just move on, but I won't attempt to reiterate it. Makes no sense like I said. They also say that the machines cannot change their programming. Which is ridiculous, how could they possibly be AI if they cannot change? The whole point of AI is that an intelligent machine could self-evolve and thus push technology by leaps and bounds in only a fraction of the time it would take anything else to do so.

I think the point of this was to indroduce these bad guy characters so they could fold them into completing the original series. I do believe F. Herbert did leave an outline and that it had something to do with machines. There is a scene in God Emporer where the worm takes Siona into the desert for her Fremen trials. He gives her some spice essence and she has a vision of machines storming into a house and killing everyone inside. So I know machines had something to do with the Armageddon both Paul and Leto II had foreseen. BUT... the butchered, ridicuolus mess these two wrote is a disgrace to Frank's legacy.

I think Frank would have made the enemy as machines, but machines who's origins are a mystery. Machines driven by cold rationality, not human emotions and megalomania. This cold rationality can lead to terrible crimes. For instance, they could have seen the massive growth of humanity as a possible threat to their future, so they chose to devote a few thousand years and an untold amount of resources to wiping us out in an abundance of caution rather than take a risk that humans, conditioned to believe that machines should not be made in the likeness of a man's mind as a fundamental pillar of their societies, should someday find a reason to confront them.

This makes way more sense. But these two authors would rather sell a bunch of prequels and sacrificed Herbert's true agenda for money. Plain and simple. There is a reason Herbert's outlines have never been made public. Unlike Tolkein's.

Based upon notes left by Frank Herbert, Dune: The Battle of Corrin is the last of a three-part series of books written by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson and brings to a close the main war against the Thinking Machines and firmly establishes such things as the Corrino Dynasty (named after this decisive battle), the formation of the Bene Gesserit tradition, the Spacing Guild's monopoly, the Fremen and the final acts and decision that formed the bedrock of the long-lasting feud between House Atreides and House Harkonnen. There are twists and turns, but mostly the story ably fills in many of the missing pieces and sets up for the next trilogy by the writing duo collectively referred to as Schools of Dune.

finally the battle the Herberts have been alluding to for decades. It was well done Frank was always the visionary, but his son is his best student and writes as if he is writing wikipedia entries on every character, event, and allusion. This is NOT insulting. I LOVE the lore, the details, the attention and explanation of the history of the "Dune" universe. Together they have creating a beautiful escape between vision and science. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

I haven't read Dune because I haven't gotten to it yet. Therefore, the previous reviews slamming this book because it is 'NOT DUNE' hasn't stopped me from reading any of the prequels.

It's a space opera, plain and simple - and it's a GOOD one. I do think the authors tend to repeat themselves a bit and I did find myself glazing over during some of the introspective passages but generally, my imagination was caught in a tractor beam for the duration of my reading.

Now, I'm going to invalidate anything I've just said: I grew impatient and read the next book's cliff notes on Wikipedia so I can skip ahead. I'm excited to read the original novels and the prequels were meant to give me the setup. The skipping ahead may have been a result of some real life pressures that have made me impatient and I was also disappointed with the Kindle Price.

If you have the patience, I recommend reading the prequels. The stories are fantastic but the characters are relatable and I continually find myself rooting for both sides of the conflict. The periods of total immersion in another time and philosophy experienced by picking up these individual novels make the trip worthwhile. The key (generally & specifically when reading prequels) is to forget the bigger picture and series. Just enjoy the ride.

Love this story very much, as all the other prequels also. Brian Herbert really learned well from his father and added a lot of cool stuff, the prequels go into economical, sociological and a lot of other dimensions.
