Del Rey announces "Transformers Exodus" origin novel

Before the Transformers came to Earth, their civil war raged for millions of years on their homeworld of Cybertron. Now the untold story of that era will be chronicled in "Transformers Exodus", a novel due in June 2010! Written by Alexander C. Irvine (Buyout, the Narrows, A Scattering of Jades) will write the book which Del Rey's site describes as: "What happens between Orion Pax and Megatron forever changes the destiny of all Transformers. This gripping, action-packed novel reveals all the loyalties and treacheries, trust and betrayals, deadly violence and shining ideals, as well as the pivotal roles played by other characters, including Starscream, Sentinel Prime, Omega Supreme, and one of the thirteen original Primes, the last link to Cybertron’s glorious Golden Age.".
