    SPOILERS AHOY



    Guess what!I read it already!

    The Curator/Inquirata had some trap.The Hydratron Titan was a great surprise.Did RacknRuin die when he rigged Shockwave's tower?Alpha Trion had a great story arc.This is the TFP prequel,right?Man,Tyrannicon came out good in the end.What happened to the Star Seekers?Skywarp's gone for good.Sharkticons are free.I wonder if the Gamekeeper is rebuilt into Bisk.What happened to Leviacon?Did he join the Autobots?Gnaw's gone also.Honestly,it was a great book.

    Thanks,
    Awesomepow

    I would read the first two. Arguably, they were better written and form a background for this third book.

    I only read this one and not the other 2, but I found it a fun roller coaster of surprising events.

    I always found the two first books to be written in a condescending tone.
    Like someone who is unable to connec to children trying to write for them.
    Wasn't impressed with them.
    Wasn't really impressed with Retribution either. But it was more interesting.
    But yeah, the Star Seekers jyst disapeared. That was disappointing.

    what was funny was the cover insinuated the characters had their TFP designs, but the previous books invoked more of the WFC/FOC aesthetic, so i didnt know how to visualize them

    It is a brilliant book really. It is a rip roaring adventure with multiple simultaneous epic battles, that like never happens in any of the media. I love the novels, read the last two saving the first one as the last piece to read(got it on the shelf).

    You could poke holes in them but really for all intents and purposes they are fine. So much happening in each one, survival, conflict, mystery, on and on.

    Btw the starseekers are introduced in the second book, so if their story is to come full circle it would be in part of another book. They are only there to further the story and are not essntial, i wouldn't cut them out though - more the merrier and they do help world building... If you like them good thing they weren't killed off. I really wish if Aligned(dead) was to give us anything more it would be more novels. Want to know what happened to the ark and how the autobots arrived on earth... Also cheeky post tfp beast hunters(not freakin RID) story would good too.

    Primes, Junkions, Velocitronians, Sharkticons, Quintessons, them other dudes. Loves it.

    Oh! I loved that book! Half Price has not had the thing and I have been looking for about a year. Got the book from my library, but ILL so I can't just pick up and read...so disappointing! I bought Exodus and Exiles but am still hunting for this. Have you read the free short story Bumble Bee at Tyger Pax? Great insert for Exodus.
