My thoughts: I really enjoyed reading Gladstone’s and found it to be a quick interesting read. Manley creates a unique world that is very intriguing and scary. Buddy, the main character, is very interesting and mysterious which makes this a story that you can get lost in. I feel that the book was a little too short and could have been more developed if the book was longer. Overall, I found it to be a very interesting but short read. **I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
