"Picking up where the Legends of Dune trilogy left off, Sisterhood of Dune is the opening chapter of a new trilogy exploring the formation of the Bene Gesserit, the Mentats, the Suk Doctors, the Spacing Guild and the Navigators, as well as the solidifying of the Corrino imperium."
"The first in a new "Heroes of Dune" tetralogy (4 books). This new series jumps around a bit in the timeline. "Paul of Dune" focuses mostly on the 12 year Fremen Jihad between "Dune" and "Dune Messiah.""
"Set approx. 3500 years after "Children." This book serves as a bridge between trilogies. This chapter of the series focuses more on the religion of Muad'Dib than the characters and plot lines that made it's predecessors and successors great. It sets the stage for the next great trilogy but impatient readers could jump from "Children" to "Heretics" without missing much."
"Set 1500 years after the end of "God Emperor." This book begins the second trilogy of the "classic" Dune novels and shifts the focus to the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, their newest Duncan Idaho ghola, and their military genius Miles Teg."
"The first of the 2-part "Book 7" concluding the Dune Chronicles. Written from notes left by Frank Herbert and found a decade after his death, "Hunters" begins 3 years after the end of "Chapterhouse.""
