Transformers:Exodus and Transformers: Exiles
« on: February 28, 2017, 08:52:42 am »
Another Transformers review no one will care about, but this time it's about books

One of the reasons I love Transformers: Exodus is how much Cybertronian history it provides. The description of a society divided by castes and the unequal treatment of the lower castes who gradually begin to rise up and demand their rights, following the inspirational words of the Kaon gladiator Megatronus. The thoughts of Orion Pax, a mere librarian working in the Iacon database, and his relationship with Megatronus as they exchanged their opinions and their own ideas of how to create an equal society. The beginnings of a war, brothers becoming rivals, the destruction of a whole planet, it's just! All! So! Great! It's wonderfully written! The way Optimus is written is great too, especially being able to hear his thoughts and internal conflicts.
If you like alien politics and war, or just like Transformers and want to know more about their history, I would definitely recommend this book. You don't really have to know much about Transformers to enjoy it.

Transformers: Exiles takes place off of planet Cybertron after the Autobots have fled a dead planet. They visit the planets Velocitron and Junkion, where they find other Cybertronians who have not had contact with Cybertron for who knows how long. Each planet has its own culture and is so incredibly unique from the other. The whole time the looming threat of Megatron's arrival leaves the Autobots uneasy and Decepticon ideas and beliefs are spread to planets before Megatron even gets there, but how???? That's a detail I won't give away. This book also has a whole bunch of great Transformers lore, which I love, and introduces a bunch of new and interesting characters.

Honestly I'm bad at reviewing things, but these books are super good and you should totally check them out if you like transformers or are interested

Ahhhh I've gotta check out those books. XD I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for them. They sound really interesting, from what you've described!
Are they based off of the Transformers Prime show?

Awesome!! Reminds me of the episode where they showed flashback images of Megatronus and Orion Pax. I'm guessing the first book is sort of about that?

It's exactly about that, and the war that followed afterwards.

Tell me if you ever get to read them, I'd love to know what you think! There's also a third book in the series I have yet to read, but I forget what it's called.

I literally just completed Transformers: Exodus!!! Took me a bit long but that's okay lol.

I'm not really good at reviews so all I can say is that it was awesome!!! 10/10 Definitely going to be part of my list of favorite books. :fox-:P: I'll now view Transformers Prime in a whole new way. xD I loved it sooo much. It was just so cool reading about all my favorite transformer characters. And I'm very happy to say that I'll be able to read Transformers: Exiles and Transformers: Retribution soon because I sent my mom the links to buy them online!

oh no double post

I've just finished Transformers: Retribution! I think it's pretty good, just as good as the other ones. I think I'd put this one as my second favorite of the three books. There's a lot of mysterious elements and a lot of fun scenes and action.

I have JUST finished Transformers: Retribution! Now I'm sad because the adventure is over. ;n; (Well, technically it has just begun xD)
BUT IT WAS AMAZING! I'll probably be thinking about this any time I see Transformers Prime.
10/10 such an awesome series. I wish there were more books in it. As I neared the end I became super absorbed into the book and read more in each sitting than I did when I started it. xD It was awesome.
