I was pretty excited about this prequel to the new Transformers movie, especially since Foster wrote the prequel to the previous movie, and I really liked that one. But he really fell down on the job this time. Ponderous and stilted, this novel makes the Transformers boring, and their human companions even more so. Glad I got it from the library and didn't actually pay for it.

Partly hampered by being trapped between two movies without a whole lot that could actually happen, the story is mostly set-up, with a few inconclusive confrontations between the Autobots and Decepticons. Optimus Prime and his human allies have set up a secret base from which to track the activities of the Decepticons on Earth, who have now divided into two factions. One is led by Starscream, with the intention of enslaving Earth's humans and looting its Energon, while the other plans to rescue and resurrect Megatron. It was filler, easily skippable. ( )

Book description
BETWEEN MAN AND MACHINE,
NOTHING IS EVER AS IT SEEMS.

Life on earth has changed forever, as humans and their courageous robotic allies, the Autobots, must warily work together to protect the planet from the destructive forces of the evil Decepticons. At the headquarters of NEST, tech sergeant Epps and captain Lennox both guard and assist cyberneticist Kaminari Ishihara and the brooding Russian AI genius Petr Andronov as they explore the differences between organics and bots. All around them, alliances fray, distrust grows, suspicions mount, and traitors come out of the shadows.

Optimus Prime, the powerful leader of the Autobots who is also part of NEST, plays defense, as battles flare up from Australia to Zambia. But escalating Decepticon attacks will culminate in a final confrontation from which no one--man or machine--will emerge unscathed.
