A Science Fiction novel by Frank Herbert, fifth in a series of six novels.

5,000 years have passed since Leto's reign; humanity is firmly on the Golden Path. By crushing the aspirations of humans for 3,500 years, Leto caused the Scattering, an explosion of humanity into the rest of galaxy upon his death. Now some of those who went out into the universe are coming back, bent on conquest, and only the Bene Gesserit perceive the Golden Path, and are faced with a choice: keep to their traditional role of hidden manipulators, quietly easing tensions and goading human progress, while struggling for their own survival; or embrace the Golden Path and push humanity onward into a new Scattering.
