Summary, etc.:
"From Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, Dune: The Lady of Caladan is a brand new novel in the internationally bestselling Dune series. Lady Jessica, mother of Paul, and consort to Leto Atreides. The choices she made shaped an empire, but first the Lady of Caladan must reckon with her own betrayal of the Bene Gesserit. She has already betrayed her ancient order, but now she must decide if her loyalty to the Sisterhood is more important than the love of her own family. Meanwhile, events in the greater empire are accelerating beyond the control of even the Reverend Mother, and Lady Jessica's family is on a collision course with destiny"-- Provided by publisher.

    Lady Jessica has been summoned by the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood to face judgement for giving birth to Paul, who the Sisterhood considers a threat. In the meantime, Duke Leto goes to the Imperial capital planet to raise the political fortunes of House Atriedes and Baron Harkonnen tries to decide which of his two nephews should be his heir. At the same time, Jaxson Aru is leading the Noble Commonwealth Rebellion against the Imperium. Leto becomes disgusted with the corruption at the Imperial court, the Harkonnen nephews launch attacks against House Atreides, and Aru's rebellion becomes increasingly violent. As the various schemes unfold Lady Jessica returns to Caladan to prevent the assassination of her son Paul by an extreme faction of the Sisterhood, Leto infiltrates the Rebellion to expose Aru and his followers, and a Harkonnen assassin is on the loose. With Machiavellian intrigues, swift narration, and personal combat scenes, Dune fans will revel in this newest entry in the Dune: Caladan Trilogy (after The Duke of Caladan, 2020). Those readers who enjoy science fiction on a grand scale will find this continuing epic of interest. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With a big-budget film adaptation of the original novel coming later this year, expect interest in all things Dune. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.

    Working from Dune creator Frank Herbert's notes, Herbert and Anderson begin to reconstruct the galaxywide events that eventuated in the highly specialized societies of the Dune novels: the wars against thinking machines that led to an absolute ban on artificial intelligence, the discovery of the powers of the spice, and the establishment of the Bene Gesserit sisters, among other things. Those thinking machines are a world mind, Omnius; his many copies operating other worlds; and the cymeks, elaborate machines with transplanted human minds. The cymeks woke up the computers of Earth and taught them to rule, not foreseeing the ultimate power that would be used against them. Humans on the machine-run Earth are slaves to an efficient "evermind." Free worlds remain, of course, their human inhabitants relying on circuitry-disrupting shields to protect them from computer-driven attack ships, and on slave labor in place of mechanization. A young Harkonnen officer is clearly the hero of the book, and Vorian Atreides, son of the voraciously cruel cymek, Agammemnon, is on the would-be oppressors' side. The planet Arrakis maintains only a few hardy desert dwellers when an exiled teen stumbles on the secret of riding the giant worms, and the sorceress Zufa trains a select group of young women in telepathic powers on the planet Rossak while rejecting her daughter, a brilliant mathematician. Herbert and Anderson strain to corral the book's many origin stories into a single plotline, and the dialogue can be stiff, but the powerful allure of the Dune mythos overcomes the awkwardness.
