Overview

The first human-alien contact. The last word in galactic warfare. The story you must read–before Transformers rockets to the big screen!

A mammoth robotic being, clearly of alien origin, has been found beneath the Arctic ice. Its advanced engineering dwarfs known human technology, and unlocking its secrets will catapult American science eons into the future. In search of the mysterious artifact’s origin, a covert government agency sends the manned craft Ghost 1 on a perilous journey of discovery.

When a mishap maroons Ghost 1 in the far reaches of unknown space, the ship’s distress beacon reaches the very alien race Ghost 1’s crew has been seeking: the Autobots. The gigantic mechanized beings are also on a quest: to find the Allspark, a device crucial to the salvation of their home world, Cybertron. But they’re not alone. The Decepticons, the Autobots’ brutal enemies, have their own sinister purposes in seeking the Allspark. As these adversaries are drawn together once more, the stage is set for a death-dealing new battle in which each is driven by a single-minded aim: total annihilation of the enemy.

Alan Foster is a fantastic writer! I thoroughly enjoy his books for Transformers and I cannot wait for him to write more! I highly recommend this for any Transformers fan! It is a great prequel to the first movie and his characterizations are PERFECT!

As the first book in live-action TF series, it had alot to explain. I didn't read it until after I saw the movie. It cleared up some questions I had and gave the transformers more in-depth personalities. It is amazing how a chance meetings enters Earth into the Transformer war.

This novel takes place before the movie and will lead to better understanding of what is going on in the film. The characters are well written and unlike many movie noveliations it is entertaining in it's own right and features fully fleshed out characters.
