Perhaps just as slow moving as ‘The Machine Crusade’, ‘The Battle of Corrin’ will climax to conclude the plots that began in ‘The Butlerian Jihad’ and were established in the Dune Chronicles.
Put at a serious disadvantage by the retrovirus against humans, the properties of spice are discovered. Through Ishmael and his stepson El’hiim, we witness the destructive divide between those who wish to keep off-worlders away from their sacred and traditional lives and home and those who wish to make their lives easier and more convenient by selling spice offworld. The military’s demanding need to use the still unreliable space folding ships is utilized despite the giant lose of men, ships, and money. Norma’s determination/obsessive fixation to solve the puzzle of folding space results in her sacrifice by experimenting on herself. The war against the thinking machines comes down to the last remaining Omnius on Corrin, where the Army of Humanity is led by the long lived Vorian Atreides to face the cruelty of the Bridge of Hrethgir and his goal to clear the name of Xavier Harkonnen.
I recommend the Legends of Dune prequel trilogy, especially to those who’ve already read Frank Herbert’s Dune Chronicles, and/or seen the 1980’s movie, and/or the SyFy channel’s mini-series. Dune is a space saga for any and all fans of science fiction, readers or not.
