in the opening scene of dune, we are first introduced to the vampire-like baron harkonnen. he’s very similar to king leopold in a little princess, particularly in that he’s a very cruel, even sadistic, dictator who rules by fear. he has a particular fear of sandworms, which turns out not to be irrational. sandworms play a central part in the plot of the book, coming back in later books.
the sooner duncan idaho and jessica, paul’s beautiful and proud sister, realize they’re meant for each other, the sooner they can escape the mysterious parentage haunting their every move. paul’s other sister, feyd-rautha, is being courted by the ambitious leader of a mysterious race of humans called the weirding.
