Transformers: Exodus by Alex Irvine
For twenty-five years the colossal battle between Megatron and Optimus Prime has captivated Transformers fans around the world. Yet the full story of the conflict between the two most famous Transformers - everything that happened before Optimus and Megatron arrived on planet Earth - has always been a mystery… until now.
This is a very easy read because the writing is good; it is what I call ‘professional’.
It tells how Megatronas a gladiator and Orion Pax (who? – he gets a name change later on but keeps the same initials), a data clerk in the Hall of Records in the Transformer city of Iacon have the same ideals but different methods of achieving them, which ultimately leads to them becoming bitter enemies in the fight for Cybertron.
I get the impression that the author is the type who is able to write movie tie-ins within six weeks, but he does do it well. There are action pieces and there seem to be chunks missing, whether these are to be filled in by other writers in other Transformer novels who knows, but things seem to happen too quickly and too conveniently.
All in all an average 7 out 10.
