So this wasn‘t bad. But I kinda got bored of it at times. It had some cute punny areas and the switching between audio and traditional book was helpful. I would kinda lose focus and then go back to it. Oh well
As a Texan.....
The blurb sounded like a blend of Without a Clue and Jackaby: Watson is really clever, and Holmes talks to demons. Unfortunately the author always go for the cheapest, stupidest joke and sidesteps every chance for character depth. Things begin to get interesting right when the book ends with a cliffhanger. It's a series, but I'm not interested in the rest.
So I picked this up at the car dealership when I was getting new tires (I had finished the book I was currently working on). Anyway, review here aren‘t too great.... but.... I am really enjoying it so far... I think it‘s right up my alley :)

I don't think it's a spoiler to say that Sherlock is a warlock in this collection of stories. 😁 Anyway, the stories are varied in length and the characters are more super than natural. Ahem. It's humorous, okay, I'm trying to get you in the mood. I enjoyed it.
Sherlock Holmes retelling with a demonic twist. It's a story full of puns and jokes. Still, I was slightly bored by midpoint.
I'm glad I listened to it, because I might have bailed the written book.
This is a silly book. It's also pretty funny, especially if a.) you're familiar with the original Sherlock Holmes stories, and b.) you don't take them too seriously. And the idea of Watson actually being the brains and trying to limit the damage done by Holmes made me laugh out loud. Not sure about its potential as a series, though. We'll have to see.
I was loving this awesome parody with Sherlock as a crazy, demon possessed warlock, when the book ended...In a cliffhanger!!! I am still fuming about it, but the audiobook was so funny and cute that I am giving it a qualified pick until the second book comes along.
This has been sitting on my TBR shelf for a long while. Do I dare read it and risk the shelf growing two more in its place?
Okay...I don't think I'm a great reviewer. Mostly because I hate telling the same story over and over, even when I like the story. But here goes:
Imagine Sherlock Holmes is actually some kind of magical stranger-slash-warlock. In Victorian London. And magic shenanigans are happening everywhere. John Watson is the only one who uses deductive reasoning, while Holmes drinks poison & bashes magical baddies. It's delightful & clever, and I loved it.
I got strongarmed into participating in some lame book pyramid scheme thing, but couldn't find the book I was going to force someone else to read...so I bought this book for me instead. Love. It. I can't wait to get back to it!
Okay - funny, fantasy, or feelings? I need your help!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this read - I giggled out loud enough to peak my husband's interest! Warlock's eccentricities certainly create some exciting adventures for Watson, whose POV is perfect for the strange world Denning creates. Besides the funny cast of characters (even the bad guys are goofy), my favorite part was the rapport between Warlock and Watson - they have banter for days!
After a long day of editing your own book, there's nothing like reading someone else's! I am seriously enjoying this so far. I even ordered Ceylon tea (as Watson loves to drink). Can't wait for it to arrive!
Completely irreverent and yet hilarious, Warlock Holmes is one of my favorite additions to the Holmes universe. Definitely not for a staunch traditionalist, the role reversal that turns Holmes into a bumbling creature makes for fantastic light reading.
Wow. Just wow. This book drew me in with it's comedic riffs on the Holmesian universe, developed those caricatures into characters you could empathize with and then socked you with a cliffhanger worthy of Moffat himself. At least, unlike Sherlock, I know it'll be resolved by May of 2017. Brilliant!
A pretty day to be outside reading 🐝
Because you need to see the full publisher blurb to fully appreciate the radittude of this book.
