The Honored Matres insist Taraza invite Teg to the ship, hoping to gain control of the ghola project. Apart from those characters that are killed or perish, all the main characters repeat in the sequel Chapterhouse: Dune, so these two novels are definitely closely connected. I chose to continue the series, and feel like this, as well as the series after the first, were both mistakes. In this re-read, the fourth, if I'm not mistaken, I had almost all of my attention on a certain young BG who was meant to imprint our young Duncan Idaho in his latest of five thousand years of incarnations. There's building up mysteries and plot twists, and then there's leaving the readers in the dark to the point that they begin to wonder if even YOU know what you're talking about.

Well, now Herbert has gone full circle just like poor old Leto II, and gives us a supremely seductive Sisterhood that counts its sexual wiles as a key weapon in its feminine arsenal, as dangerous even as the Voice. People note Dune (1965) of American science fiction novelist Frank Patrick Herbert for its intricate plot and its broad intellectual scope. And on the VERY NEXT PAGE, he's on Rakis waiting for a sandworm to arrive with some little girl whose importance STILL has not been touched upon by ANYONE at the very end of the book.By crushing the aspirations of humans for over three thousand years, Leto caused the Scattering, an explosion of humanity into the rest of the universe upon his death. Descended from Bene Gesserit who fled Leto II centuries earlier, I still don’t know what their end goal is. The Atreides are still about, but have been absorbed into the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, on which this book focuses. From burning desert to green and fertile land and on again to burning desert … the cycle is complete. Chief among these is the hidebound priesthood that adopts the seer Sheeana, whose lineage can be traced back to Siona in ‘God Emperor’ (and even further back to the aristocratic Atreides themselves.

PS: I also don't think this volume brings much insight for its readers, but I will read the next book anyway. Reading the dense techno babble vocabulary was like trying to eat a cold whale omelette covered in walrus grease.It speaks volumes of this book that up until the last six pages I had absolutely no idea what the endgame was; yet throughout, I was riveted to the page. Odrade is a loose cannon; she does not obey normal Bene Gesserit prohibitions about love, and is also Teg's biological daughter. It’s also funny that Brian Herbert in his introduction talks a lot about “the strong characterization of women” in the Dune series, particularly in Heretics and Chapterhouse, and how “female characters get stronger and stronger as the series develops … in Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse: Dune, women are running most of the important planets in the Dune universe. As the awesome character of Miles Teg, former Supreme Bashar tries to protect a young, and very special, ghola of Duncan Idaho. Herbert instead chooses to focus on his protagonist's heightened awareness, and the character in question reminisces on childhood experiences and considers the forces at work in the universe whilst distractedly lopping off the bad guys' heads with the occasional sweep of a hand.
