Iron Man

Iron Man is the first book in Iron Man Movie Tie-Ins Series by Alex Irvine. We all know Tony Stark, the genius, billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist starring in Iron Man movies. After his father’s sudden death, he takes over the company empire that Howard Stark had set up at a young age. Stark Industries has long been one of the world’s largest weapon manufacturers and is the official supplier to the United States.

When Tony Stark travels to Afghanistan to unveil the Jericho bomb, there is an incident on the way back, where terrorists attack him and his motorcade. After countless deadly shots, Stark manages to get out of his car before it blows up and nearly fatally wounded by one of his weapons. When he wakes up, he finds himself in a cave where he will be held captive by the terrorists. All that keeps him alive is a powerful electromagnet and a car battery that keeps the shrapnel from his heart.

But he would not be Tony Stark if he did not have a plan to free himself from the clutches of the terrorists. A time of change is approaching. Superficially, the stories and characters are handled brilliantly than they do in the movie adaptation.

Iron Man is one of the film books that are difficult to put down, thanks to its vivid descriptions, fast-paced plot and plenty of action scenes. Tony Stark is always in public as an arrogant man who can rarely turn his back on a pretty woman without having slept with her. But deep down, he too is just a man full of fears. After his kidnapping, for the first time, he becomes aware of his humanity and above all his vulnerability and realizes that something has to change in his life. With Iron Man, he creates a brand new Tony Stark, who works for the people and practices a kind of self-justice to the bad boys and protects the victims from their attacks. Although none of his fellow human beings can really believe this at first especially not his pretty assistant Pepper, but Tony shows it all and becomes a superhero and a cult figure.

It is well known that Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, is one of Marvel’s characters. Accordingly, this also provides enough material for a novel, although even in the film even little things are dealt with incredibly well. Particularly impressive were the thoughts of Tony that you don’t get to see in the movie. So if you ever wanted to know what’s going on in this brilliant mind, you should definitely read this book. Even his weaknesses are rolled up again and again and prove that his suit cannot protect him above all else. For Pepperony fans, this book is an absolute delight as both are much closer to each other than they are even aware. Sometimes they seem to be blind to each other, while their environment seems to know exactly what is going on or not.

Overall The Iron Man is an exciting story, interesting backgrounds and characters and it’s an unforgettable reading experience and a great addition to the great movie.


If you’ve watched the Transformers movies, then Transformers novel by Alex Irvine is a perfect read for you. You’ll find more action and detailed description you won’t find in the movie adaptation of the same. The story starts out following the Decepticons and Autobots as they continue their conquest across the galaxy to regain their Allspark. The Autobots manage to flee from the Decepticons and discover one of the many lost colony words known as Velocitron. A colony that was lost thousands of years back as a result of Nova’s Invasion but now inhabited by Cybertronians.

The Velocitronians had evolved to a species that’s their main concern is to the pursuit of speed. Different races were held on a daily basis, and all the natives were frequently upgrading their mainframes in order to accommodate very high speeds. But soon, a piece of unknown artifact emerges and gives Optimus visions about the whereabouts of other remaining artifacts. This leads him and his crew to another colony, a planet known as Junkions. The Junkions discovers that an imposter has infiltrated their colony and therefore must find the spy before it’s too late. To make matters worse, the Decepticons are closer than ever and so a race against time begins.

While Transformers isn’t the most straightforward plot to tag along from a casual point of view, if you commit to the storyline, this novel is a fantastic read. Alex Irvine knows how to open up his character’s mind to the readers. The readers are in Optimus Prime mind from the vast of this book, and the author does a great job at it. The author doesn’t protect him as the main character even from his father. On the other hand, Optimus isn’t apprehensive toward the notion of being a leader. He accepts it with full responsibility and has to trust the mysterious artifact even though it might lead him to dangerous places. If you enjoy reading science fiction action-packed books, then its highly recommended you grab copies of Alex Irvine/Alex C. Irvine books.
