Dune Messiah

by Herbert, Frank

Darkness descends upon Paul Atreides, now Emperor of a vast empire. Haunted by the consequences of his triumph, he grapples with the weight of prescience, veiled in shadows of uncertainty. As political intrigue intertwines with religious fervor, allies transform into foes, and betrayal lurks in every corner. Paul's empire teeters on the edge of collapse, while a clandestine plot unfolds, threatening to shatter his vision of a better future. Amidst a backdrop of secrets and enigmas, Herbert's masterful tale delves into the uncharted realms of power, fate, and the indomitable spirit of humankind.

Dune Messiah is a science fiction novel by Frank Herbert, the second in a series of six novels. It was originally serialized in Galaxy magazine in 1969. The American and British editions have different prologues summarizing events in the previous novel. The novels Dune Messiah and Children of Dune were adapted by the Sci-Fi Channel in 2003 into a mini-series entitled Frank Herbert's Children of Dune. In 2002, the Science Fiction Book Club also published the two novels in one volume.
