Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius. Warlock Holmes is an idiot. 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 thing he has really got going for him are the might of 1,000 demons and his stalwart companion.
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.

"A must for all those who like their Holmes on the wilder side." (George Mann, author of Sherlock Holmes: The Spirit Box)
"I laughed like a loon." (James Lovegrove, New York Times best-selling author of The Age of Odin)
"With more twists than a Victorian corset, this is Sherlock for the mash-up generation. Tongue-in-cheek, knowing tales, with dollops of Penny Dreadful and a side salad of Atlantis." (William Sutton, author of Lawless and the Devil of Euston Square)
if you can get pass the first stupid storyline then it is a good book, the performances are good and the premise is interesting but the first one is just a stupid idea
The narrators voice is very engaging particularly Dr Watson's voice and having just watched the new TV series of Sherlock Holmes found this book very enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed the comedic aspect of the book and it made me laugh quite a few times.
I listen to audio books whilst out walking and found the narrator easy to listen to. The different characters voices were particularly good and added to the comedic aspect which may have been missing if I had read the book. I really enjoyed Dr Watson's voice who also narrates the book. I found this book easy listening.
Watson and his slightly sarcastic comments
A lot of Watson's observations. Too many to mention
Downright silly at times, a little weak in spots. A very silly Holmes and a quite sarcastic Watson.I soon found myself interested in finding out how and what twists had been made to the original stories. The continuation boggles the mind and I am waiting for the next installment. No matter how silly it will get.
good story and a pretty strong performance the jokes and comedy are also good. So I would recommend.
Unfortunately and despite the best efforts of the narrator it was not. An opportunity missed by a mile.............
I love urban fantasy and Sherlock but this didn't work for me.
Pretty good effort.
