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.

Short on Clues--Heavy on Delightful Twists
Don't expect much in the way of in-depth mysteries here, or on heavy duty clues (altho' there are some pretty hilarious "observations"). Do, however, expect plenty of twists on the well-known Holmes plots. Denning has crafted a delightful supernatural romp-"thriller" that has PLENTY of memorable characters (rat-boys, anyone?) to tickle even the most ennui-ridden funny bone. Robert Garson does an exquisite job voicing the many, many characters, and he especially brings the quirkiness of both Watson and Holmes to life. Excellent job, tho' it did indeed end too soon. The only thing worse than a waste of money is a waste of time. "Warlock Holmes" is neither of those: very much worth the chuckles and pittance.

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.
