The New York Times bestselling trilogy is back! Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson’s prequel to the epic Dune Saga is back in fantastic new reissues, starting with Dune: The Butlerian Jihad.

Here is the tale of how Serena Butler's passionate grief ignites the war that will liberate humans from their machine masters. Here is the beginning of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood. Here are the Zensunni Wanderers, who escape bondage to flee to the desert world where they will declare themselves the Free Men of Dune.

And here is the backward, nearly forgotten planet of Arrakis, where traders have discovered the remarkable properties of the spice melange.

Against the brute efficiency of the Machines, the human race has only imagination, compassion, and the capacity for love. It will have to be enough.

The only new Dune books by Herebert & Anderson I would recommend are Paul of Dune & possibly Winds of Dune. The House trilogy are fairly ok.

With The Butlerian Jihad it may be of interest to the serious Dune reader to flesh out the early time line. Suffer through it for a few intersting and ok parts.
Overly violent, sensational. plodding, pedantic and way too long.
It gets worse for the next two books in this trilogy and also for Sisterhood of Dune which also exists on the pre-history timeline of the Dune universe.
