The plot is set in the distant future, where humanity is spread throughout the galaxy. People reside on planets that are overseen by feudal Houses that operate under Imperial rule. These factions fight to control access to the most valuable resource in the universe, a rare spice that can only be found on the most valuable desert planet in the universe: Arrakis.
The spice not only enables space travel, but extends the lives of those who ingest it, providing them with a level of omen that these interconnected space colonies depend on for their survival. The rich world of Herbert’s novels encompasses factions and communities that have made her a darling of generations for decades.
