the story rolls along, much more history being related, very interesting! Harkonnen’s started so good too..sigh. ( )

Second in the prequel trilogy, this one is (again) just okay. The story is just too disjointed, the characters just a bit too black/white for it to be more than an interesting foray into someone's idea of how Herbert's DUNE got its start. ( )

Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson continue their tale of the Butlerian Jihad in this second enormous installment of a trilogy. They continue to plant the seeds which will grow into the world of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Some of the characters have become a little repetitive, but overall, it makes for interesting reading if you’ve read the Dune novels.

Published in hardcover by Tor. ( )

I started to read this book immediately after finishing the first in the series, The Butlerian Jihad.The book starts off about 30 years after the first one, and moves forward pretty rapidly from there. Many of the characters are carried over from the first novel, but adapted and changed by the events that have occurred. Some characters become more sympathetic, one character in particular goes from being a likable hero into an absolute monster. The events in this book are interesting, and it reads well. There are some surprising events that shake things up quite a bit, and some very unexpected deaths at this stage of the series.This book brings many elements more inline with the familair Dune canon, explaining away some things that seemed like inconsistencies. I would still highly recommend the series. ( )

The Machine Crusade is the second in a trilogy of the Legends of Dune, chronicling the Butlerian Jihad of man battling intelligent machines. This book didn't contribute anything sufficiently important to warrant its own volume, it should have been incorporated into the other two works in the series.

I was sorely disappointed in this book. The writing is bad, the dialog horrible. The Dune series is famous for its political intrigue, but in this book, the resolutions came too quickly and felt contrived. It was difficult to work through the book, toward the end, I just wanted to finish it.

This book had extreme violence, which goes against the grain of all other Dune books i've read.

On the positive side, it was good to read about some of the early events in the universe and have things explained. At a high level, there were interesting events taking place, it just wasn't well told. ( )
