Monster Squad: The Iron GolemMonster Squad: The Iron Golem by Christian Page
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

** I received a NetGalley ARC in exchange for an honest review.**

Traditional monsters with a not-so-traditional view... Alien technology has endowed a team of scientists and researchers with super-human abilities - longevity, invisibility, and super speed among others. While most of the team becomes accustomed to their new abilities and use them to try to help civilization, one member betrays his friends and becomes known as von Frankenstein. A few generations down the road things come to a head.

This would be a great book for 4th-7th graders who love action and monsters - although the monsters are more super-humans than true "monsters". The storyline was a fun blend of traditional characters with new twists to their abilities and everyday 13-yr-old life.

I thought the blending of old with new was very well done - an entertaining read.
