This is a lot more involved than the first few "Dune" books, and it's a bit difficult to keep track of what's going on. That said, it's definitely a worthy addition to the series.

"Chapterhouse" is particularly good if you're interested in the Bene Gesserit. A lot of unanswered questions get resolved in this book.

The unthinkable - Arakis is destroyed ...
All comes to an end in this page turner.
Good satisfying ending.
