Unfortunately, his notes are being taken up by Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert to butcher into a new series of Dune books.
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

So why are you reading it? He sucks, it's a universal truth you say. So why did you pick up the book and read it? I read the first of these attrocities and never looked back and bought any afterwards.

If you've been reading all of them, guess what? You have no real basis to say he sucks because you're paying him to provide you with this story you supposedly think sucks. You deserve what you get.

The characters were out of character the whole time.
