Chapterhouse Dune is the last book Frank Herbert wrote before his death and a stunning climax to the epic Dune legend that will live on forever.

"Compelling...A worthy addition to this durable and deservedly popular series." (The New York Times)
"Compelling Socio-Political fantasy drama"
Dune was a magnificent book; but it pales in comparison with the final two books in the Frank Herbert timeline - Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse Dune.
These two books stand together and follow on one from the other. The story focuses around the struggle of the Bene Gesserit (post Dune), the race to establish a supply of melange and a new threat that has merged from the scattering.
The best part about these books is the ingenious social insight that Frank Herbert displayed as he explored principles of power, control, and minority rule. He teaches through the story also - principles of a supply and demand economy, different political and social structures, ecology....
The Saga could not have finished in a finer way. The Author's family should be very proud of this accomplishment because it is far more than a compelling story.
"Worth a revisit"
Having read the Dune series years ago I wanted to re-visit my favorite book, Chapterhouse. This installment focuses on the Bene Gesserit with all their political scheming. The multiple narrators really helps make this audio book version come to life. Overall I was not disappointed.
"a great read"
I have all the books in this series and have had them for many years, if your in to sci-fi then you can't go wrong.
I must have read this book 10 or more times over the years and never get board of it.
