SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Transformers: Exile - Alex Irvine

Release Date: 27/09/11


The epic battles between Optimus Prime and Megatron have long thrilled Transformers fans. But these two giants werent always great leaders and bitter foes. This new novel continues the electrifying saga that started with Transformers: Exodus, unveiling the origins of the conflictthe explosive events that unfolded before Optimus and Megatron arrived Earthside, forever altering the destiny of their kind.


Whilst I’m waiting for the next release in this cracking film franchise, I really couldn’t wait to get my hands on this outing from Titan set during the original conflict for Cybertron between leaders Optimus Prime and Megatron. It’s got pace, it’s has some very visual moments and perhaps best of all for the reader it has the quality to help you re-envision the cartoon series of the 80’s (hey I admit I’m old.)

All in a good bit of fun that plays on the franchise and the ancient enmity between the Autobots and Decepticons which does give you a chance to take a breather whilst allowing the reluctant reader to find a title that may well keep them happy.

Not everyone likes the Transformers films, but I've always found them entertaining. It's nice to see a franchise book also being a good read, and useful for something other than toilet paper!
