Okay...I read the last book and it was a decent enough read. Putting aside the debates on the two camps concerning the post-Herbert books, is it me or did the authors create a "loop" which will likely repeat the Butlerian Jihad in Sandworms of Dune?
Okay, Duncan Idaho is the man who brings together man and machine to live in harmony. Cool, okay...I'll buy that.
But what was the reason for making a ghola of Serena Butler? Maybe I missed it in the book, but it just seems to me that she grows up, Erasmus is around (in a way), and it ends up something happens with her that triggers the jihad again and you loop right back around to the beginning of the books or the whole thing starts anew.
Or...perhaps that is the only reason to put Butler back into the storyline...to make more books?
