Amikor ​egy amerikai archeológus, Cassandra Rubicon nyomtalanul eltűnik az ősi maya város, Xitaclan feltárása közben, FBI-nyomozók indulnak Mexikóba, hogy megkeressék. Nem akármilyen FBI-nyomozók ők.

Résztvevői a közép-amerikai kábítószerkereskedők, a nemzetközi műtárgycsempészek és egy titkos amerikai kommandó, melynek valamely furcsa, ismeretlen jeleket sugárzó adót kellene megsemmisítenie. Cassandra apjának segítségével az ügynökök feltárják Xitaclan titkát. Fölfedezik, mi történt Cassandra eltűnt régészcsoportjával. S mielőtt még a háború kitörne, rálelnek az ősi erőre is, melyet a mayák talán még ismertek. Amelyhez hasonló azonban a Földön nem létezik....

Brian Herbert - Kevin J. Anderson - Dune ​- The Machine Crusade
The ​breathtaking vision and incomparable storytelling of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson's Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, a prequel to Frank Herbert's classic Dune, propelled it to the ranks of speculative fiction's classics in its own right. Now, with all the color, scope, and fascination of the prior novel, comes Dune: The Machine Crusade. . More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in The Butlerian Jihad. The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years, but the forces led by Serena Butler and Irbis Ginjo have made only slight gains; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat. The fearsome cymeks, led by Agamemnon, hatch new plots to regain their lost power from Omnius--as their numbers dwindle and time begins to run out. The fighters of Ginaz, led by Jool Noret, forge themselves into an elite warrior class, a weapon against the machine-dominated worlds. Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva are on the verge of the most important discovery in human history-a way to "fold" space and travel instantaneously to any place in the galaxy. And on the faraway, nearly worthless planet of Arrakis, Selim Wormrider and his band of outlaws take the first steps to making themselves the feared fighters who will change the course of history: the Fremen. Here is the unrivaled imaginative power that has put Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson on bestseller lists everywhere and earned them the high regard of readers around the globe. The fantastic saga of Dune continues in Dune: The Machine Crusade.

Soron következő célpontjuk a Kalamári, az a vízivilág, ahonnan Ackbar, a felkelők legendás admirálisa származik. A bolygóért vívott elkeseredett harcok során egy minden eddiginél nagyobb fenyegetésre derül fény: Luke akadémiájának egyik tehetséges diákját hatalmába kerítette az erő sötét oldala. A tanítvány szabadon engedi a Szith rend egyik ősi mesterének szellemét, ketten együtt pedig félelmetesebb ellenféllé válhatnak, mint bármi más, amivel az Új Köztársaságnak ez idáig szembe kellett néznie.

Nem anya szülte és nem is Isten teremtette, hanem egy ember, az őrült Frankenstein, akit mindenki mással együtt ő is rég halottnak hisz. A mai New Orleansben a régi lángok ismét fellobbannak, a hajdani rémtörténet alakjai ismét az élő emberek között mozognak. Nem csupán Frankenstein teremtménye maradt életben, de maga a tébolyult tudós is. Él, alkot, új terveket sző, és Victor Helios néven, a legmodernebb technikával teremti az Új Faj egyedeit, hogy velük váltsa valóra eddigi legeszelősebb tervét. Senki sem állíthatja meg Victort. Senki, talán csak egy cinikus nyomozónő, és a társa, valamint Frankenstein legelső teremtménye: a tékozló fiú. _A klasszikus regény szerzője, Mary Shelley beérte azzal, hogy megmutassa a világnak a legendát, Frankensteint és teremtményét. Talán nem is sejtette, hogy halhatatlan hősöket alkotott, olyan lényeket, akik évszázadokkal az ő halála után is élni fognak. Élni... A szó legszorosabb értelmében._

Brian Herbert - Kevin J. Anderson - Dune ​- The Butlerian Jihad
Frank ​Herbert's Dune series is one of the great creations of imaginative literature, science fiction's answer to The Lord of the Rings. Decades after Herbert's original novels, the Dune saga was continued by Frank Herbert's son, Brian Herbert, in collaboration with Kevin J. Anderson. Working from Frank Herbert's own notes, the acclaimed authors reveal the chapter of the Dune saga most eagerly anticipated by readers: the Butlerian Jihad.

Finally, we see how Serena Butler's passionate grief ignites the struggle that will liberate humans from their machine masters; here is the amazing tale of the Zensunni Wanderers, who escape bondage to flee to the desert world where they will declare themselves the Free Men of Dune. And here is the backward, nearly forgotten planet of Arrakis, where traders have discovered the remarkable properties of the spice melange....
