"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 a thousand demons and his stalalwart 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"--Amazon.com.

A delightful parody. It won't be as good for those not fairly familiar with the Holmes canon (if such people actually exist?), as a lot of the jokes are based on details from the original stories.

Denning's take on the Sherlock stories is delightfully silly - a marriage of Victorian mystery with magic and paranormal. The concept is a bit strained at times but it's so much fun that a few flaws are easy to forgive. Most impressive is how well Denning mimics Conan Doyle's writing style: despite the contemporary concept and humor, this reads like a Victorian novel.

New Author for me; good, and well written. This parody novel finds Warlock Holmes, a magician helping Scotland Yard detectives Vladislav Lestrade (a vampire) and Torg Grogsson (an ogre) who call upon Warlock when something "out of the ordinary" takes place. Watson, as always, is our stand in and the only "human" of the bunch. If you enjoy your Fantasy with laughs, you'll like this book.

"Time exists in every realm that I know of, but in many of them it is not a poison. In other realms, age is more likely to improve a thing than wear it down--thus very ancient things are amongst the most powerful" Warlock to Watson, pg 186
