The sequel to Dune takes a massive departure from the tone of the first book. In the first book it’s easy to see Paul as the hero, but after 12 years of an interstellar jihad he seems powerless to stop, it’s difficult to see him in a positive light. The main plot is a conspiracy to dethrone Paul, mixed with Paul’s concerning visions of the future. I think this was every bit as good as the first one and I’m looking forward to the next book.
