Publisher's Summary

The game's afoot once more as the long-suffering Dr. John Watson and a partially decomposed Warlock Holmes (though he's getting better) face off against Moriarty's gang, the Pinkertons, flesh-eating horses, a parliament of imps, boredom, Surrey, a succubus, an overly Canadian aristocrat, a tricycle fight to the death, and the dreaded Pumpcrow. Oh, and a hellhound, one assumes.

Funnier, with more gruesome bits

This book gets a bit more gruesome and strange than the first one, but somehow is also even funnier. It also reads better as a single story than the first one, which seemed more like several short stories put together. If you read the first book, that is probably all you need to know. If you haven't read the first one, start there, because this one picks up from the end of that one and you'll be completely lost without it. The narrator is absolutely perfect.

even better than the first book!!!

Smart, funny, unpredictable, irreverent and yet still an homage to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson... with the perfect narrator. I found it even more engaging than book 1 since it was only one story (rather than multiple and less cohesive "adventures" ) and easier to get invested in the plot. I want more. 😈👿

Great Fun!

This is a great little gem. It is entertaining and a neat twist on a classic and well-known story. If you love strange and unusual, then Warlock Holmes will deliver! It makes fun of itself at times and is never too serious! Also check out the Warlock Holmes: A Study in Brimstone!

second in the series

Any additional comments?

more Warlock goodness. Our hero continues to retell the old Holmes stories with a new twist. if this is your first one of these, go back and read the first one. This one is a stand alone novel, but you'll get more out of it reading them in order.

No a bad listen

having listened to the first in the series and this one I found the first to be a little bit more enjoyable a little bit more satirical and a nicer parody to the Sherlock Holmes series however this was not bad it just wasn't quite as witty as the first one. I hope if there is a third one in the works that hits will be more like the first in the series . This one fell short certain areas and it felt a little flat too.

Book 2 as entertaining as the first!

If you enjoyed the first one, you'll enjoy this one as well. You also get the bonus of delving into Warlock's past, which makes a bit of sense out of a lot of the weirdness that tends to go on. Looking forward to the next one!

Can't wait for book 3

If you're a Sherlock Holmes fan, you'll love the Warlock Holmes stories. The supernatural twists make it fun, yet the writer still pays homage to the original stories.

A fun trip through an alternate world

I have loved Sherlock Holmes since I was a kid, so I wasn’t sure about these books. However I got the first and fell in love. The stories are not thinly altered supernatural versions of the original; rather the author has taken the titles and a few salient characteristics and written a whole new story. The connections are fun to make, but the stories themselves stand alone. Warlock Holmes and Watson are very dear together, and by the end of the book I wish there were more stories to enjoy. The narrator is excellent, it is easy to distinguish the characters, and e clearly has a fun time reading the book.

great fun

Would you listen to Warlock Holmes: The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles again? Why?

I have listen to this several times thru. If you know Sherlock Holmes then these will take you on a new twist of old stories.

What other book might you compare Warlock Holmes: The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles to and why?

This is the second in the series, both are a fun spin off of Conan Doyle's work.
