And yet only a handful knew the real mission behind America’s triumph in the space race: to explore the alien ship that has crashed on the far side of the moon. Decades later, scientists are still struggling to understand the technology found on board—though with the treacherous Decepticons after it, a powerful force must be at stake. The only hope of averting a crisis is to reawaken Sentinel Prime, the long-lost leader of the Autobots—but who knows what else remains in the shadows, hidden from man and machine?

Top customer reviews 4.0 out of 5 starsVery good ByVictor Orozcoon February 24, 2014 Format: Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase Much like the movie its beginning is supremely weak, but picks up half way. Interesting that instead of Alan Dean Foster who did the previous two novelization as well as two other tie-ins. But I applaud the move, Peter David adapts the story better than Foster. I really liked the premise of the whole movie involving the Apollo mission and liked how both movie and film had it as a celebration of the human race in the accomplishment. I didn't like that this movie was built around Sam being unsatisfied after what he did in the past Transformers films. Most likely created so as to have Shia LeBeouf find a satisfactory end to his three-picture deal. I have to admit that on screen Carly appears much better than how she is on paper. The actress certainly does a good job. I find it interesting that the book mentions Mikaela in only a few sentences. Making the rift between Michael Bay and Megan Fox that bad. As for the book itself I like the depth of the characters improved with not just the humans but with the Autobots and Decepticons. The font in the book itself is stylized with parenthesis for the Decepticons and bold for the Autobots. You really felt more for Optimus reading his feelings over the betrayal he suffered. I also found it interesting that two reviled characters from the previous movie incurred really tragic death scenes. I really loved those two and felt for them when they died. But I'm sure plenty of cynical jerks would have enjoyed it. Little differences are spread out that make it different. For example when the five pillars are found they are actually put under a safeguard that would have destroyed them if any attempt to break in to the safe they were kept. Many things which I really enjoyed better than what was done in the film. Though at the very end scenes I preferred the movie. Still a very good book. B+. Comment| 2 people found this helpful.
