This is book number 1 in the Transformers (2019) series.
A new era dawns with a new Transformers universe, as leaders Orion Pax and Megatron vie to win the hearts and minds of utopian Cybertron.
In the infinite universe, there exists no other planet like Cybertron. Home to the Transformers, and a thriving hub for inter-stellar commerce, it is a world brimming with organic and constructed diversity. Immense structures line its landscape. Mechanical giants roam across its surface. Starship-sized titans orbit its skies, keeping a constant protective watch above and below. Ancient Transformers merge into its very fabric. Small, mysterious creatures skulk in its shadows. It is a truly amazing realm, long untouched by war, and exuberantly reaching for the stars. This is the Cybertron that Orion Pax and Megatron compete for in this bold new origin--a world of seemingly endless peace.
All that changes when Bumblebee and Windblade take a newly-forged Cybertronian on his first voyage through this world of wonders, only to discover the first murder to occur on Cybertron in living memory! Soon, they'll face the hard reality that the planet is on the brink of an unprecedented shift, and nothing will ever be the same.

About the Author
Brian Ruckley is the author of five fantasy novels, including The Free, The Edinburgh Dead, and the three novels of The Godless World trilogy. Before he became a full-time writer in the 2000s, he attended Edinburgh and Stirling Universities and had a series of assorted jobs around London, most of them in the charity-sector. Much of his work has involved extensive overseas travel, environmental and community projects, nature conservation, and fundraising. He now lives back in Edinburgh with his wife and misses the excitement of London only a little, and only occasionally.
