Weird. There were some technical issues I found with it, but other than that, I'm not entirely certain if I liked the story. Yeah, there were parts I liked and I'll readily admit that I liked the first-ish part better than towards the middle and later on (I think I especially didn't like the middle). It's weird because it starts off with a rather strong Iron Man voice (I've never seen Punisher, so I have no idea if Frank's acting "in character" or not), but then it starts deviating and starts mo ...more

My first reaction was, "Iron Man?" but I absolutely love other Aleksandr's writing's, so I kept reading. The writing style is awesome (for a lack of a better word) and even though I really don't have a clue about Punisher or much of Iron Man comics, the writing and the plot really worked, for me.

However, I think I would have been able to enjoy this a lot more if I hadn't seen Iron Man movies. Movies always ruin reading for me and somehow, even though I think Robert D. Jr is sexy, I was frustrate

Great reading stuff as always from Voinov and his partners in crime.

I loved the balance of the characters, the 'something' that's developing, their exploring of self through each other.

I have such a strong image of Iron Man already and this fit completely with how I'd imagine him to act and react. The Punisher was new to me, but now I want to go find him.

A real treat of 'good' bad guys getting it on - or should that be 'bad' good guys :D ... I'll go wih the latter.

Very interesting! I am not a comic book fan but after reading this, I have the urge to learn more about the Punisher and Iron Man. I really enjoyed the plot and as always, Alek did a great job. You should do some other more fan fiction like this!

Think this has to be the first Iron Man/Punisher fanfic I've ever read...and I can't say that this book is making me want to go out and find more. Don't get me wrong, it is very well written, and I mostly enjoyed reading it, but it just ended up being not for me. For some reason I just couldn't get into all the killing going on on-page. Sometimes that isn't a big deal (I've read enough Deadpool fics to speak to that), but the Punisher just was too angry and uncaring for me to really care about h ...more

The unique cross over novel.
Since watching Iron Man and The Punisher, I was fascinated with them. And I think that; this Tony Stark is really attractive. Frank Castle too. I like those two guys a lot. Nice buddy.
While reading this story, I could spend happy time.

Liked the characters and would love to see some of them again. *cough* David *cough* ^^

Punisher's such a dud of a character. What if Stark had met, say, Wolverine?

Generally I'm the most "distracted" and "self centered" person I know. I don't know anything about anything unless it's totally useless information. I don't read newspapers, I don't listen to the radio and I don't watch TV. My friends usually see that I know what's important..
It's the same with movies. My friends are expected to send me trailers to whatever it is they want us to watch together (or promise it's really good and I'll like it - they know me after all and it's not THAT import

I have to say that I was FANtastically surprised by how good this story was. I'm no comic-afficiando, but I enjoyed the Iron Man movies so I was familiar with his persona (which the authors captured beautifully). Hadn't a clue who The Punisher was, but the author(s) did a great job of clueing me in and giving my background on his character. The set-up of the 2 MC's meeting was well-played and I love picturing Tony Stark in the submissive role. The storyline was excellent and get me in suspense. ...more
Okej, I know absolutely nothing about superheros and comic books, what I know is from Big Bang Theory and it's not helping me much here. But I really liked this even though it grossed me out at times. When reading about a vampire blooddrinking is natural but when Tony and Frank are having sex...that made me nauseated, gross. Still good though.

Mert iszonyúan el voltam veszve a könyv végéig. Nem értettem a szereplőket. A végén szerencsére letisztultak a dolgok, de a ki kivel is van most és miért menet közben nagyon zavaros volt.
Fun fanfic.
