Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius who uses the gift of deduction and reason to solve the most vexing of crimes. Warlock Holmes, however, is an idiot. A good man, perhaps; a font of arcane power, certainly. But he's brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn't deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only things he really has going for him are the might of a thousand demons and his stalwart flatmate. Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety and save him from a gruesome death every now and again.

An imaginative, irreverent, and addictive reimagining of the world's favorite detective, Warlock Holmes retains the charm, tone, and feel of the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle while finally giving the flat at 221b Baker Street what it's been missing for all these years: an alchemy table. Reimagining six stories, this riotous mash-up is a glorious new take on the ever-popular Sherlock Holmes myth, featuring the vampire Inspector Vladislav Lestrade; the ogre Inspector Torg Grogsson; and Dr. Watson, the true detective at 221b. And Sherlock. A warlock.

    "Action, Comedy, Fantasy done well"

    The pacing of this book is really well done. It felt way too short just because I kept listening to it so much. With it being an audio book and never looking at the progress bar, I didn't have an idea I was reaching the end. Afterwards I was just left with a feeling of "What! That's it...." Looking forward to the next book.
    Really good mix of action, comedy and fantasy. And managed good character development. Reminded me of Jeeves and Wooster.

    Story
    "Sherlock with a twist"

    The reader provided an entertaining experience with the various character voices for this story. The story for Sherlock Holmes fans was a fun twist on the traditional stories, adding a supernatural twist. If you aren't familiar with Sherlock Holmes, it might not be as entertaining as a stand alone set if shirt stories.

    Story
    "Cannot wait for the next one!!!"
    Would you listen to Warlock Holmes again? Why?

    I didn't know what to expect, however, I was pleasantly surprised!! Fun listen and really hooks the listener. I very much enjoyed the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Holmes by far, because he is so daffy!!


    Have you listened to any of Robert Garson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The "other" Holmes detective.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it. Will purchase the next one!!

    "Superb!"

    A must read - listen - for all Sherlock Holmes. lovers and non-fan's, too. A wonderful homage, tribute and re-imagination of the famous detective. The narration is one if not the best of all that i have encountered. The only drawback i can say is the book is too short but i am sure there will be more coming.

    "Dull"

    Yawn . I was unable to finish this book. I kept hoping for some good British humor it never happened . I don't think I'll be reading anymore of SS Jennings books
