    One thought on “Transformers: Retribution”

    1. This book started out really well and was then plagued by editing errors (some of which improved it) and strangely wasted potential. First, the good. It was very exciting. Each action section is well-paced and there were a lot of them! It was nice to see so many characters and teams involved, on and off of Cybertron. I liked the plot on Cybertron better myself, since I am a huge fan of the Wreckers, and I love seeing Shockwave rise to new heights of crazy. The other plot, which linked up in a co [...]

    2. Read this review (and others) at: literatureislife/2017/04/This review will contain some spoilers for the previous two books, Transformers: Exodus and Transformers: Exiles, as well as the related Transformers Prime television show and the video games War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron.Transformers: Retribution brings a new author to this trilogy of books with David J. Williams and Mark Williams picking up where Alex Irvine left off. And it shows, it certainly shows. Retribution is a signifi [...]

    3. ”I know how much it pains you to admit that I’m right about anything.”“That’s not true,” Optimus said. “You were right about the old caste system. You were right when you said every Cybertronian has a right to chart his own destiny.”“So in that case why did we ever go to war?”“You know why, Megatron. Because you think that all destinies aren’t created equal. That the strong should rule the weak.”“It’s not a matter of should, librarian. It’s just what happens natur [...]

    4. WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEADTransformers Retribution is the third and final book in a series, preceded by Transformers exodus and Transformers exiles, and follows the story of the Autobots and the Decepticons as they make their final stretch through the galaxy towards a small, blue planet called Earth (Hey, I know that place!). Having ejected the Allspark from Cybertron back in Exodus to keep it out of the hands of their enemies, and traversing the planets Junkion and Velocitron to reclaim [...]

    5. "Transformers: Retribution" is the 3rd and final installment of the trilogy preceeded by "Transformers: Exodus" and "Transformers: Exiles" with David and Mark Williams taking over the helm from Alex Irvine.Last time we left them, the Decepticons were headed in the general direction of the AllSpark with the Autobots trailing not far behind. Not sure what happened since then, because the book opens up with the Decepticons LOOKING for the Autobots. The Star Seekers then took advantage of this, and [...]

    6. this is the third book of the current transformers series, the first two books were written by a different author. one can clearly differentiate the writing styles between alex irvine and the current author. irvine's narration makes more sense as in the transformers were depicted as less humanoid as compared to this book. in this book, they (view spoiler)[smoke cigar, drink some form of beer for robot, converse like humans - e.g. usage of 'piece of cake' by silverbolt. maybe they have robot cake [...]

    7. I really did not think that I'd give more than four stars to this book, but it was really epic and very, very well done. The Quintesson plot added much needed variety in the classic Autobot vs Decepticon characters and new and powerful original characters were added to the story of Optimus and Megatron. The final third of the novel was frenetic. Respect to the authors of the book and The Transformers series!

    8. A good read for Transformers fans. Nothing amazing, though. I liked how they delved into the '86 movie and used the Sharkticons, Quints, etc Some interesting parts, also a number of out-of-character moments (imo). Nevertheless, worth reading, if you have spare time and money. Otherwise, you're not missing much, to be honest!!

    9. Not amazing. After all, it is a Transformer novel. However, the story wasn't completely predictable. I found a few errors, but let it slide is a transformer novelThe characters are even more Prime and G1 mixed. This makes it hard to give them a good image or personality. If you like Transformer novels, it is as good as the others

    10. Well I suppose this could have been better but unlike Exodus which was amazing with the history of the war and all. I liked how we got to explore more of the Quintessons. This book was all wet in its way but still pretty interesting.

    11. A stronger narrative than the prior two books in the series, and it looks like this one at least saw an editor as it is far less typo-ridden. Still a few continuity errors, but that happens when a series switches authors midstream.

    12. The story was OK - however the writing was lacking. Younger readers or someone that wants to know everything about the world of transformers prime should read it. Casual adult fans may not find it worth their time.

    13. Although this is a very flawed book, I dare say it is the best Transformers book I have ever read. Very entertaining.

    14. Great book. The occasional story where Optimus Prime and Megatron put aside their differences to face a common threat is always awesome and welcome.
