With millions of copies sold worldwide, Frank Herbert's magnificent Dune novels stand among the major achievements of the human imagination as one of the most significant sagas in the history of literary science fiction. Dune Messiah continues the story of Paul Atreides, better known-and feared-as the man christened Muad'Dib. As Emperor of the Known Universe, he possesses more power than a single man was ever meant to wield. Worshipped as a religious icon by the fanatical Fremens, Paul faces the enmity of the political houses he displaced when he assumed the throne-and a conspiracy conducted within his own sphere of influence. And even as House Atreides begins to crumble around him from the machinations of his enemies, the true threat to Paul comes to his lover, Chani, and the unborn heir to his family's dynasty.

2014 re-read. A much less in scope book from the initial Dune masterpiece but one that delves into the characters that were introduced in it. I really enjoyed this re-read much more than the first time I read it and will be continuing my re-read of the rest of the series in 2015.

5.0 Dune trilogy are the best sci-fi with a good messiah story
Dune is a great book. A book about a young man, being chased by bad guys discovered that he had the power to control the worm. The story is more like a lost prince getting back his empire. The main character, in order to gain power, use the myth of the people and turned himself into a messiah. ...

4.0 Dune Messiah
I think I've mentioned before that certain book titles can get a song lodged into my head for the duration of the time I read it. Dune Messiah is another of those books, with Metallica's "Leper Messiah" the song. I can't really complain, though; I find that to be one of the band's most distinctive...
