What The Lord of the Rings is to fantasy, Dune is to science fiction. Presenting Children of Dune, the third book in one of the most influential series of all time, which has inspired countless other stories for more than half a century, this is an awe-inspiring world, and a story of truly epic scope.

The sand-blasted world of Arrakis has become green, watered and fertile. Old Paul Atreides, who led the desert Fremen to political and religious domination of the galaxy, is gone.

But for the children of Dune, the very blossoming of their land contains the seeds of its own destruction. The altered climate is destroying the giant sandworms, and this in turn is disastrous for the planet’s economy.

Leto and Ghanima, Paul Atreides’s twin children and his heirs, can see possible solutions – but fanatics begin to challenge the rule of the all-powerful Atreides empire, and more than economic disaster threatens …

Read the series which inspired the Academy Award-winning and jaw-dropping cinematic events Dune: Part One and Dune: Part Two. A science fiction spectacular like no other, this is a deeply climate conscious novel, and a compelling family saga for the ages.
