An excellent Iron Man novel, an excellent Marvel novel, and a good work in and of itself.
I was - incidentally - looking for Spider-Man novels in the library and listening to the newest Piano Guys Batman medley when I came across this and decided to give it a go. I am very glad I did. Iron Man as a character didn't really interest me until Marvel's recent graphic novels and screen adaptations gave him new life and more than a money bag in a tin can.
This book, containing reference to the formation of SHIELD, and keeping Pepper Potts as a secretary, was like the prequel I didn't know I wanted.
I definitely recommend it both to Iron Man fans, and other fans wandering around who might not necessarily snatch up this find. Read it. You don't know you want to, but you will.

If you liked Iron Man, the movie, you'll like the novel Femmes Fatales by Robert Greenberger. It occupies a similar territory with its narrative and inside the head of Stark Industries and Tony Stark himself.

Iron Man was, as a comic book character, never terribly exciting to me. But the life given by Robert Downey Jr's portrayal is staggering. A man inside a suit is, after all, something any of us can begin to imagine.

Stark - with his magnetised chest-plate has an Achilles heart and an Achilles heel - his eye for the ladies. They don't work well together. This novel is all about his vulnerability to that and it weaves in a modern terrorist narrative that is very much the rage given world events. It works well, as does the shared billing for Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. This organisation is credibly drawn given its under-staffing and bureaucracy.

What does not work so well is the HYDRA organisation. Although the details are handled well, the motivation, structure and management all seem unbelievable. But it is fiction, and it's not putting in for the Nobel Prize for Literature, so we can let that ride this time.

Greenberger keeps it skimming along well, balancing action and character development, combining the ingredients that made the movie work so well and not insulting your intelligence. It is a promising start if there are more of these to come.

This book was interesting and a nice read. My favorite character was Madame Masque (who doesnt use sex as a weapon, unlike what a review said). She is very smart and intriguing.

A short, but sweet review:

I might have been expecting too much, but this Iron Man novel did NOT have:

1. Strong characterization, only pedestrian ones
2. Much mention of Tony Stark's super technology
3. Fights with Super-Villains, only several fights with Hydra lackeys
4. An awesome climax; it was ho-hum and dangling....

There was way too much redundant focus on the 2 female villains.

I was rooting hard for this one, especially with Robert Greenberger's comics background....but perhaps next time.
