Pretty good ending to the series. This was probably the third-best book of the series, tied with Children.
As with most of the books in the Dune series, the ending was not that great. Chapterhouse has this great, slow build throughout the book that made me think the ending was going to be a great showdown between the Honored Matres and Bene Gesserit. The showdown happens but that's it - it just happens. If Herbert would spend a few more chapters on the ending of the book and less on the politics...
