Police mostly refers to Prowl, who acts, yes, as a police officer for the Autobots, but also is a police car. (There are some moments with human police officers, and a bunch about spying and other governmental agencies meant to act in a protective manner, but they aren't really police forces. The difference becomes clear when Prowl patrols, because he's given specific orders, that are dealt with on the street, as a police officer, and not as spy or agent of any sort of acronymed agency.)
There are a couple issues: the man stirring up anti-alien fear, specifically against the Cybertronians, as well as the fact that Spike might not be as trustworthy as the Autobots once believed.
This was a far more compelling volume than I remember For All Mankind being, although I may go back and reread that before buying International Incident. (Which I want to read because of how Spike kills a Decepticon; it's brutal and I'm not quite sure how it was accomplished, so, yeah, there's that. I'll probably end up rereading this whole series in order at some point, too, and I own almost all the collections from sales.)
The spotlight with Prowl was especially poignant: he needed that hope, as much as everyone around him did. I do think it's not completely in character for him, but I enjoyed it despite that because of the feels.
I bought the newest TAAO so I could have it on the go because I love it that much, and just in case I lose/destroy my paper copy, I want this at hand.
I also got Revenge of the Decepticons to read before the next Optimus Prime, because it's all about trusting Jazz after he killed a police officer. Well, now I have that story. Police Action should deal a little more with the fallout of that, and was only four bucks, so, yeah, I added that.
I got all this for under eleven when each of these volumes would usually cost that on their own, so I'm pretty pumped.
So, after the first four books, I expected to get to know Antimony in this one, but with the Dancing title, I should have known it was Verity.
Verity and by extension Dominic are back as Verity stars in something like So You Think You Can Dance. I'm not a big fan of these talent shows, and reading about them was also not my favourite. Obviously, something fishy is going on at the program and you really don't want to be eliminated.
I like these books a lot. They don't have the best story, or are written in the best way, but they are heavily entertaining, with lots of cute characters (all the fantastic beasts) and I find Chaos Choreography as well as the rest of the series are great for relaxing. Would certainly recommend as a light read.
But man, that's quite a cliffhanger!
