Review: The Gilded Wolves

I borrowed this book from the library several months ago now--during my summer holidays--and I read it promptly, but I haven't been very proactive in writing the review for it.

It sounded like a violent-mutant-slime-doctor movie which didn’t sound very interesting to me. Then, she informed me that Doctor Strange was played by Benedict Cumberbatch, and I said something to the effect of “OMG really? Oh well, let’s watch it then!” To which she replied with something like “I thought that would convince you.” She knows me too well...
