Rated 5 out of 5 by Scenic7PR Great Historical Insight
While many others online have complained about the quality of the writing or nitpicked certain aspects of each characters motivation for doing what they do in the book, it is not that bad. In fact, going through this as a historical reference, an insight to the beginnings of the war and the formation of the two major factions, it is actually pretty good.
It is hard to place where this book falls in the current media for Transformers though. For fans of the movies, many of the events won't match up too well with the third film's revelations. For fans of the original cartoon, referred to popularly as G1, there will be a few robots that get fleshed out a bit more than they did in the cartoon.
This is understandable though, there is just so much content in the Transformers universe that some will have to be lost as time goes on. For fans, this is definitely worth the price, it is great to get more insight on the reasoning behind Optimus Prime and Megatron and where they came from in life before being thrust into the roles they ultimately take on.

The story is good, fast paced and a lot of characters. The only backside is that you need to know the characters previously, you need to be an old timer fan of the series because some older characters are involved (minimal participation, but at least appear a bit or are mentioned), such as Ultra Magnus or Unicron, not just the new autobots from the movies. For me it was very good. I'm a big fan.
