Prelude to Dune Trilogy

from amazon:
If the third and final volume of Herbert and Anderson's terrific Dune prequel has any weakness, it is that House Corrino's foolhardy, self-centered Emperor Shaddam IV hasn't the depth of either Duke Leto or Baron Harkonnen. The most interesting members of House Corrino--Shaddam's wife, Anirul, and her eldest daughter, nine-year-old Irulan--exist mainly on the sidelines of the story. But the emperor's brilliant, twisted advisor, Count Fenring, comes into his own when he stumbles on a Tleilax project to develop a synthetic version of the spice called melange. The Bene Gesserit decides to tighten the tether on Leto's beloved Jessica as she nears the delivery of his child, bringing her to the imperial court, where she faces peril on a dozen unsuspected fronts. Leto, meanwhile, plans a precisely timed attack on the subjugated planet Ix, where failure would mean personal humiliation and loss of his House, Atreides. In depicting situations ranging from a mother's love for her unborn child to a bastard prince's vengeance for the death of his entire world, Anderson and Herbert draw emotional power from every character to fuel the complex political tale they tell.
