The science fiction masterpiece continues in the "major event,"( Los Angeles Times) Children of Dune. With millions of copies sold worldwide, Frank Herbert's Dune novels stand among the major achievements of the human imagination and one of the most significant sagas in the history of literary science fiction. The Children of Dune are twin siblings Leto and Ghanima Atreides, whose father, the Emperor Paul Muad'Dib, disappeared in the deserts of Arrakis. Like their father, they possess supernormal abilities—making them valuable to their aunt Alia, who rules the Empire. If Alia can obtain the secrets of the twins' prophetic visions, her rule will be absolute. But the twins have their own plans for their destiny.

4 stars

Leto et Ghanima, les enfants jumeaux de Paul Muad'Dib Atreides et de Chani ont grandi. Leur tante Alia assure la régence. Leur grand-mère Jessica revient sur Arrakis après plusieurs années de retraite sur Caladan. Quant aux héritiers de l'ancien empereur Shaddam de la famille Corrino, ils complotent pour reprendre le trône impérial. C'est dans ce cadre que débute le troisième volet du cycle de Dune. Le récit est passionnant, jusqu'au final, surprenant et haletant. Quel plaisir !
