The Gauntlet by Eoin Colfer

Sophie,
Eoin Colfer
The Gauntlet
Disney Book Group 2016

This is the 'Iron man meets Artemis Fowl('s younger sister)' we've all been waiting for! When Tony Stark travels to Ireland to attend an environmental conference, things do not go as planed. "The Gauntlet' tells the well-loved story of harrowing escapes, a red-headed genius realizing her humanity, of the to-good-to-be-true superhero, and the over-powerful villain, but in a way that makes it seem brand new. Colfer does a brilliant job of maintaining his own, unique writing style, while keeping the well-known persona of Iron Man intact. I look forward to whatever Colfer has in store for us next.
Rating: 4 Better than most
