*I received an arc of this book from the publisher at BEA, in exchange for my honest 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.

Marvel fans of all ages will love reading Eoin Colfer's THE GAUNTLET. Written true to the iconic Iron Man, Colfer effortlessly brings the snark, the ego, and the brains of Tony Stark to life within the pages of his new middle grade book. 

There's no shortage of danger, action, snark, or trouble for that matter, in this book. What fans love about Marvel's Iron Man, spring to life within the pages of this book. It is incredibly easy to mentally picture everything that is going on, while reading the book. It's like reading an Iron Man movie in book form. 

I really enjoyed the over all story arc for this book. Readers will see Tony Stark's struggle to be accepted by his father as a young boy, to the man he becomes, what drove me to become Iron Man, to seeing him fix the errors of his thinking, and his creations.
I've always been a fan of Iron Man, (though I may like Captain America a little bit more in the movies), and I really loved the Iron Man I got to know in this book. 

While this book is about the fan favorite Iron Man character, this story is a whole new story for young Marvel fans to enjoy! This is a fantastic book for Marvel fans of ALL ages to enjoy. I don't think anyone could have written this book better than Eoin Colfer. I'm hoping we'll get more Iron Man books from Colfer! This one is definitely worth picking up!
