The Sentinels

The war had been raging since The Fall. This spread of chaos began with a death. The death of The Last. When they died it caused a shiver down the fabric of the universe. And so came the rise of the Traction Era and the never ending cacophony of blood and rage and anger. The war against The Sentinels, guardians of the least important fragment of The Will, was waning, the Sentinels crumbling. Twelve beings of metal, they stood, twice as tall as a human, with skin of luminous steel. Yet eleven of them had fallen and only one remained, shrouded with the grey matter from the surface of a dead star.

Three turned to two as the last hope of the world battled on, never ceasing in the never ending war of theirs. Yet most of the world had been reduced to ash and cinders, the atmosphere was full of dust and smoke and civilisation was dying. It all began with The Fall, the death of The Last. It began with the end of humanity.

    Transformers 2.

    Sorry, had to be said.

    1. There is a mention of Sentinals
    2. There are 12 original Primes (first robots)
    3. Metal skin they have in your story.
    4. A war
    5. All of them died except for one
    6. They were the guardians of something
    7. They planned to destroy stars

    Sorry if it was not your inspiration, but it sounds like it was.

    Otherwise, AWESOME STORY OCTA!

  6. Never seen Transformers!

    It was inspired by the Prologue of Mister Monday. That scene gripped me and made me read Garth Nix's work who is a genius! Garth Nix lead on to more literature. That prologue really started my inspiration to write .

    Must be a coincidence.

  7. Have you read all of the Keys to the kingdom series?
