It’s been twelve years since Paul Maud’dib Atreides’s (Alec Newman, Frank Herbert's Dune) desert-dwelling Freman Jihad spread out across the universe to exterminate all that remained of the Old Imperial armies—twelve years of war as all the known planets were colonized, one-by-one, under Maud’dib’s rule. Out of this chaos, the House Atreides has emerged as a superpower of Dune—the arid planet, Arrakis. But its imperial government is not omnipotent. Its greatest enemy, the fallen Baron Harkonnen (Ian McNeice, A Christmas Carol), still strives to regain control of Dune, its mysterious life force, and everything it represents to the galactic order.
