It is 83 years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin and Faykan Butler established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. Even so, anti-technology fervour continues to sweep across the human-settled planets, with powerful fanatical groups imposing violent purges.

As an avid Dune fan, I am grateful for the story of the Sisterhood, but there are plot holes here and there. I would not prefer to have not read the book, but it feels a little rushed to me, like they are working a little too hard to get another Dune story out without the quite the depth and attention to detail that we have come to expect from Dune.

What I did like about it is the depiction of a struggle in the evolution of what would become the Sisterhood. A lot of people have a tendency to accept the fact of the sisterhood as fait accompli, but it provides realism that would exist in the struggle to build and great organization, and sometimes I was in suspense as to the fate in that evolution.

All in all, not a bad book, but not, in my opinion, Dune level.

Sisterhood of Dune takes off shortly after where the Legends of Dune series ended--the aftermath of the war against the Thinking Machines and the establishment of the Corrino Dynasty. Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, using notes from the late master author Frank Herbert, tell the tale of the Butlerian Jihad and the rise of the major institutions that shaped the human-occupied galaxy such as the Bene Gesserit school, the Suk school, the school of Mentats and the organization that became the Spacing Guild. There is also a continuation of the stories of both the Atreides (embodied by long-lived Vorian) and the miserable Harkonnens, still stinging from the aftermath of the Battle of Corrin. It is interesting to witness--as a reader--the formation of the shaping forces which ultimately play roles in the larger Dune mythology. Sadly, the problems that plague the first set of prequels does not abate here...some of the storytelling itself is wooden, in places abrupt, and populated by characters that are just not as robust as how Frank Herbert might have developed them to be. For loyal fans of Dune who crave more of the backstories that support the original series.

I am troubled by everything about this book, starting with the title of this entry. The Sisterhood was discussed no more and no less than any of the other schools. Moreover, I learned nothing new about them. In fact, what I did know had to be dumbed down to fit the constricts of this book. When the Sisterhood was discussed, it only lightly touched on the sacred passage to becoming a Reverent Mother. This venerable transition could have been such an opportunity for these authors. I won't put spoilers in this review; but, given the authors' lack of ideas - am left feeling like the Sisterhood teaches nothing, is completely inept with their training and that everyone at the local methadone clinic is, in fact, a Reverend Mother. Short of almost overdosing, there are zero prerequisites to become a Reverend Mother in this book?!

Sisterhood of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson lives up to the expectations set by reading nine of the other novels they've contributed to Frank Herbert's Dune legacy.
Plenty of people are happy to dismiss these supplemental prequels, sequels, and gap-filler novels...but I'm not one of them. I won't deny it's an easy perspective to adopt, considering that neither Brian nor Kevin have the literary prowess Frank Herbert displayed...and the vision isn't quite there either, but expecting them to somehow match Herbert's writing would be absurd anyhow. There are plenty of people out there, like me, who feel the aching need to keep diving further into the universe that Dune created, otherwise there wouldn't have been bestsellers in what they've released...so I have plenty of company in still loving these books even with the faults and shortcomings.
This novel goes a step further than the trilogy that preceded it in delving into the development of the powerful organizations that later come to majorly influence the universe in which Dune takes place. In addition to providing intimate glimpses into the early stages of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, a good deal of the story focuses on the Suk medical practitioners, the Mentat schooling, the transportation company that later becomes the Spacing Guild, as well as a little bit more detail of the Swordmaster training program.
The overall theme of the narrative is dedicated to a conflict between unreasoning superstition and rational thought...which seems a bit on the nose as far as the political climate in America is concerned, but it wasn't handled so poorly as to be irritating.
I'm terribly biased where all things Dune are concerned...so I enjoyed the book. My judgment is questionable though, but that's probably always true.
It ends with an open-ended quality that makes it clearly pave the way for Mentats of Dune, which I haven't picked up yet, but plan to...and I must admit it would be nice to see how the Butlerian anti-technology fanatics get reigned in sufficiently that the technologically advanced planets of IX and Richese are able to flourish and become what they are by the time Dune and the immediately preceding trilogy come along. So, here's for hoping that these two authors follow up and add yet another volume to the expanding literary universe of Dune. I know that I'll read it.
