Summary

Fearful of losing his precarious hold on the Golden Lion Throne, Shaddam IV, emperor of a Million Worlds, has devised a radical scheme to develop an alternative to melange, the addictive spice that binds the Imperium together and that can be found only on the desert world of Dune.

In subterranean labs on the machine planet Ix, cruel Tleilaxu overlords use slaves and prisoners as part of a horrific plan to manufacture a synthetic form of melange known as amal. If amal can supplant the spice from Dune, it will give Shaddam what he seeks: absolute power.

Really enjoyed this

Read the Dune series first, before embarking on the ‘house of’ books. They each fill in background to the characters you’ll meet in the Dune books. I guess any of the House Of books make a good story as stand alone novels, but they really are best, read AFTER the main series.
The stories are good and the narration is as excellent as ever. Well worth the credit paid.

excellent trilogy

it felt very much like his father wrote this trilogy.

I really enjoyed all the backstory, that sheds light on what brought all the houses to the positions in the original novel

YES, YES, YES!!

Absolutely excellent end to the incredible house trilogy. Scott Brick is easily the best man for the job, as his narration is wonderful. I recommend this trilogy over, and over.
