"The sequel to Sisterhood of Dune...The thinking machines have been defeated but the struggle for humanity's future continues. Gilbertus Albans has founded the Mentat School, a place where humans can learn the efficient techniques of thinking machines. But Gilbertus walks an uneasy line between his own convictions and compromises in order to survive the Butlerian fanatics, led by the madman Manford Torondo and his Swordmaster Anari Idaho. Mother Superior Raquella attempts to rebuild her Sisterhood School on Wallach IX, with her most talented and ambitious student, Valya Harkonnen, who also has another goal--to exact revenge on Vorian Atreides, the legendary hero of the Jihad, whom she blames for her family's downfall. Meanwhile, Josef Venport conducts his own war against the Butlerians. VenHold Spacing Fleet controls nearly all commerce thanks to the superior mutated Navigators that Venport has created, and he places a ruthless embargo on any planet that accepts Manford Torondo's anti-technology pledge, hoping to starve them into submission. But fanatics rarely surrender easily . . . The Mentats, the Navigators, and the Sisterhood all strive to improve the human race, but each group knows that as Butlerian fanaticism grows stronger, the battle will be to choose the path of humanity's future--whether to embrace civilization, or to plunge into an endless dark age"--… (mais)

Just Ok. Very predictable ( )
  LoisSusan | Dec 10, 2020 |
A decent enough space opera continuing the Dune saga. The characters are generally monomaniacs pursuing single goals and there are few good guys but the plot rolls along nicely and keeps you reading. There is too much repetition - a common flaw in Dune books - but I guess as the plot and background are complicated it aids clarity. Not bad and you might as well read it if you like Dune.
For a more complete review see my post on sfcrowsnest.

Title: Mentats of Dune Series: Dune Author: Kevin Anderson & Brian Herbert Rating: 2 of 5 Stars Genre: SFF Pages: 448 Synopsis: A direct sequel to Sisterhood of Dune. The Mentats are truly coming into their own while placed between the battles of the Anti-Technologist Jihadis and Venport and his newly birthed Spacing Guild. At the same time Vorian Atreides is whining and whinging his way across the universe trying to make up with his several generations removed family. And the despicable Harkonnens set in motion the feud that will consume both families. And lots of other bits and bobs. My Thoughts: This book got the "trash" tag. Not because the grammar or writing was crap, but because Anderson and Herbert are so small minded that they can't write anything in the Dune Universe without ruining it with their banality. I've read all the sequels/prequels and forgiven this Duo quite a bit, but this was just crap. Many, many instances of something about to happen, chapter ends, then the aftermath 2-3 chapters later, while the actual event isn't written about. It was a deliberate choice, but it was a poor choice and made them look like the posers they are. I am a big Frank Herbert Dune fan. Which is why I judge these more harshly than if they were just some random SFF books. These are money makers and it shows. And as I've said before, these 2 authors don't even make one half of the writer that Frank Herbert was. Not recommended. " ( )

I enjoy the story line, but the frequent repetition of background facts and principles really wear on me after a while. ( )
  Vinculus | Jul 20, 2016 |
This was much better than "Sisterhood of Dune," but it is difficult to relate to so many hard-headed, extremist, one-dimensional characters who largely act irrationally all the time. ( )
