I'm now at the part where:
The Nemesis has landed on what remains of Junkion with the reqium blaster
The Junkions are helping the yet-unrevealed bots (obviously pirates) do something with the spacebridges
Nexus Prime has just reformed and is handing over his blade to Optimus Prime
Shockwave is coming for Alpha Trion

Seems like you're getting a better grasp on the book's plot than I was.

Finished!
It wasn't that complex of a plot. The hardest part was trying to picture the things happening near the end in my mind, such as The attaching of the space bridges to Tidal Wave, and where everything was located

Amen to that. The sensory details in this book were ridiculous.

Not to mention the editing. At one point, Silverbolt personally takes Optimus and Bumblebee to Solus Prime's tomb. But then when the leave it, they're suddenly all inside a ship piloted by Sideswipe as though they had been using it the whole time. And then upon getting back to the others, Silverbolt is their personal transport again without any sign of Sideswipe having ever been with them.

And, is Nexus Prime seriously carrying four swords inside his body? He was entrusted with the Star Saber, he gives Optimus the Cyber Caliber, he pulls out and uses the Omni Saber during the battle, and then pulls out and threatens Thundertron with the Chaos Edge. Dude's like a walking arsenal.

And a whole host of other oddities mentioned here.
