It doesn't entirely pay off.
The story is ok. It focuses on Windblade as she tries to survive in the politically charged post-war Cybertron, her naivity and position of power proving a ticky combination. The biggest problem is some sub-par narration, which feels like Scott trying to ape RiD's John Barber. It's too insubstantial and is often clashing with dialogue. The story's resolution also rankles, as there isn't enough consequence for certain characters' actions, giving it a limp feel.
Where the book really struggles though is the artwork. Sarah Stone is an excellent cover artist, but she struggles with narrative art. Her highly stylised work makes it incredibly hard to follow the story when anything more complex than a conversation happens. There is one big reveal about halfway in that completely falls flat because it's impossible to tell what it is you're being shown.
The ties to the over-arcing plot threads of the IDWverse mean that you can't really skip over this book, and while there's a nice array of characters to get you through, it's certainly not the best IDW has produced in their Transformers renaissance.
