Blog Tour: Gauntlet Review

Tony Stark is known throughout the world as many things: billionaire, inventor, Avenger. But mainly for being the Invincible Iron Man.

Just when Tony is about to add his pizzazz to an international eco-summit in Ireland, someone close to him forces him to question his role in making the world a more dangerous place with his high-tech weaponry. But Stark doesn't have much time to reflect before an old enemy presents him with an even greater challenge: the assassination of all the eco-ministers, and Iron Man himself. Just how invincible Iron Man is when he is stripped of everything remains to be seen in this breathless adventure by the bestselling author of Artemis Fowl.

I ever thought I would be into superheroes and then I saw the Avengers and I fell in love. I really enjoyed this book. I like how the book started when Tony was a teenager and dealing with his father. I enjoyed his troubles with his father, how he never lived up to his expectations, how they had a terrible relationship, and how it changed moments of his life. 

 I like how he went Rogue off the coast of Ireland. 

I love all the action and the danger. There's never a dull moment in this book. It's all edge of your seat action - one fight scene to another.

Even though Iron Man's age is never really mentioned beyond the first chapter, you know he's matured (kind of).  I do like the teenager in the book - how she's crafty, manipulative, and intelligent. 

Perfect for fans of the Avengers, fans of superhero books, and fans of action books.

Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) was born in Wexford on the South-East coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four brothers were brought up by his father and mother, who were both educators.

He received his degree from Dublin University and began teaching primary school in Wexford. He has lived and worked all over the world, including Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. After the publication of the Artemis Fowl novels, Eoin retired from teaching and now writes full time. He lives in Ireland with his wife and two children.

Best review on this book yet! now I really, really want to read it based on the character background in the book and the fact it will keep me on the edge of my seat. I love Iron Man (finally just saw Captain America on DVD this weekend) and love this author's writing.
