The second official prequel to the summer's "TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN" movie begins here! "DEFIANCE" tells a tale that delves back to the very origins of CYBERTRON and the beginnings of the war between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS. In Vol. 2, CYBERTRON is attacked by an alien race attracted to the energy signature of the ALLSPARK. Their attack on the city of METROTITAN is thwarted by the military and security forces led by MEGATRON, who was severely wounded in battle. Collapsing at the base of an ancient relic discovered at an archaeological site, MEGATRON is close to death. What dark secret is hidden within the relic and how could its discovery lead to the collapse of CYBERTRON? Spotlight editions are printed on high-quality paper and with reinforced library bindings specifically printed for the library market. Grades 2-6.
