God Emperor of Dune Summary

Plot Summary

God Emperor of Dune describes the climax of the millennia-long "Golden Path" by which Leto II Atreides sacrifices everything and tyrannically prevents the extinction of humankind.

The God Emperor Leto II is nearing the end of his anticipated 4,000-year lifespan and reign according to the "Golden Path."
