    1. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2017/07/04/The thing about Warlock Holmes is, you can’t stop at just one. A Study in Brimstone was so much fun, I simply couldn’t bear the thought of letting book two go unread for one second longer. Almost as soon as I finished the first book, I fell upon the sequel The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles like a ravenous zombie on a fresh brain.Last we left our characters, Warlock’s arch nemesis Moriarty had just revealed himself, setting off a c [...]

    2. If I don't win this giveaway I hope the people at Titan have their lives wrecked by the ghosts of donuts.

    3. Here we have a comical Holmes but it may be that but it is still one for the Holmes fans as if don't know SH this is waste of time. In 1980s Tom Baker played Holmes in very bad version of The Hound even Tom said in Who on Earth is Tom Baker? that his Holmes stunk & that is what Warlock is because Watson poisoned him & shot him through the heart twice so gone off. But that doesn't stop Holmes . What with Tolkien jokes & peg legs along with Flashman puns the first story is very funny. [...]

    4. This was really hilarious. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, or that there was a first book in this series. I just saw it at a bookshop, laughed at the title, read the first few pages, and, realizing this is exactly my kind of fun, was hooked. I really loved the idea of Warlock Holmes, sorcerer and accidental detective (who was childish, impulsive, and somehow just adorable) whereas Watson is the master of deductive reasoning who has to clean up Holmes' messes and keep him from doing [...]

    5. I pre-ordered this and was so looking forward to it but was ultimately disappointed. It’s not necessarily a fault which lies with the book itself, more that it wasn’t really what I was looking for. I enjoyed the first in the series but this just felt like it was riding on the back of it, I found myself having to re-read whole sections as it just wasn't sinking in!Not for me!

    6. Can I have more please? I want more, like right now! Please, please, please^^ I love it. Oh man, talking horses, demons, a love-stricken Torg and magic everywhere. Holmes half-dead at the beginning and end. And Watson in-between. I would've loved more Torg and Lestrade but a girl cannot have everything, sadly^^Anyway, I cannot wait for part 3 next year. I really thing, that Benedict Cumberbatch is the perfect Warlock, even when you don't squint looking at Dr Strange and Holmes at once^^

    7. After a dark Holmes What I need was very light Holmes this comical Holmes but you still need to know Holmes or waste of time,you have the Hound of The Baskerville's woof. But the Prof & Few others.I keeped thinking of Tom Baker as Warlock as Tom did ghastly Hound in middle of 1980s after left Doctor Who even Tom said in his book Who on earth is Tom Baker? that he made a ghastly Holmes.

    8. A wonderful follow up to the first book, The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles is fun, witty, and magical. Seriously, there's magic in it. Good magic, bad magic, magic that means well but gets in its own way every so often. This is one of the few books that actually make me laugh out loud. If you're a fan of Sherlock Holmes, good writing, better jokes, and a bit of demons and hellspawn, you can't go wrong with Warlock Holmes.

    9. Review originally posted at Erlebnisse: erlebnisseweb.wordpress.** I was given an early copy of the book by the G.S. Denning, because he's merciful and knows how eagerly I have been awaiting this book. He's also horrible. Read on to find out why.**So, friends. Warlock Holmes: The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles.Holy shit.If you read my review of Warlock Holmes: A Study in Brimstone, the first book in this series, you know how hard I've fallen for this retelling. How well the characters captivated [...]

    10. I was hoping that Denning could take this series to another level and he most certainly did that. Please go and check out my review of A Study In Brimstone (ASIB) before you read this review. The Hell Hound of the Baskervilles reverses the format of the previous novel, in which there are several smaller stories before a large 218 page main story, and I think this works much better. ASIB ended on a cliff-hanger of sorts and this novel picks up shortly after that. Holmes was taken over by Moriarty [...]

    11. There are very few authors where I feel compelled to keep reading until I've finished the book. G.S. Denning has now joined that list. I basically started this late yesterday morning and I've just finished it at about 5pm this afternoon.I adore these books. I read these with a huge smile on my face. They match my sense of humour completely.This one starts with Watson trying to keep Holmes's corpse under wraps, by filling his rooms with flowers. Yes, Holmes is dead - or at least he would be if hi [...]

    12. Never on this earthly plane would I have thought I could encounter what I have just experienced at 221B Baker Street.  But the game is afoot a hoot, and it is most satisfyingly odd.As the great fictional detective is reduced to a rotting corpse with the ethereal ability to solve crime, a carnival of reinvented Conan Doyle short stories are combined to propel us toward a sorcerous crusade. Rather than provide a quick resolution to a problem, when Warlock Holmes’ unique talent manifests itself [...]

    13. All of my reviews can be found at: jacob-reviews-books.cI was intrigued by the premise of Warlock Holmes the Hell-hound of the Baskervilles, the second book in the series by G. S Denning, it isn’t the sort of book I would usually read but surprisingly I really enjoyed it. Some of the magic and fantasy realms did get a little bit confusing, especially towards the end but the plot and the story were gripping and I really engaged with the characters. Warlock Holmes, the great fictional detective [...]

    14. I was really looking forward to this volume because it contains a parody of The Hound of the Baskervilles, which has always been my favorite Sherlock mystery. But all in all, I feel a little disappointed by it. The handful of mysteries that led up to the big one at the end seemed rather pointless in my opinion, and there was so much going on in the Hell-Hound story that it was difficult to keep up with everything. I sort of feel like I trudged through the last 150 pages or so.The book still defi [...]

    15. Fantastic! Sherlock Holmes as a warlock is a silly idea but it works. This sequel continues his adventures just as strange and wonderful as the original.

    16. Originally published at Risingshadow.Warlock Holmes: The Hell-hound of the Baskervilles is a must-read novel for everyone who loves humorous speculative fiction and mystery fiction. It's an incredibly imaginative and gripping re-telling of Sherlock Holmes stories, because it has been soaked in deliciously black humour. It's simply stunning in its style and execution and should not be missed by anyone who has a taste for quirky stories.It's great that Sherlockian fiction seems to be blooming nowa [...]

    17. Holmes and Watson. It is a pair of names that has been synonymous with crime and mystery for over 100 years. But what if Holmes was a master detective? Instead, Holmes is a wizard- and not a very good one at that? What if it was Dr. John Watson who was the brains of the operation and it was his skills of deduction that brought London’s criminal element to justice?He’s Getting Better Warlock Holmes and the Hell-hound of the Baskervilles is the second book in the Warlock Holmes series of novel [...]

    18. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote a lot of Sherlock Holmes stories, but not that many novels. Holmes adventures were mostly kept to a short story length that allowed a quick build up and reveal that would fit into an episodic telling. The best known novel is ‘‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’’ and anyone who parodies the great detective would eventually need to cover the tale of the cursed Baskerville family. They don’t come more parodic than Warlock Holmes and although he may have died at th [...]

    19. For the most part, this volume of Warlock Holmes is on par with the first. It goes down a little bit due to lacking the pleasant-surprise quality that the first book had, but the near-perfect mix of humor and mystery is still there throughout all the early stories. The problem comes when we reach the final, titular story. It's not bad per se, but it fails as a Sherlock story. To misquote The Big Lebowski, this is Sherlock, not 'Nam, there are rules. The rules of Sherlock Holmes are very importan [...]

    20. In The Hell-Hound of the Baskervilles, G. S. Denning once again gives a delightful twist to the retelling of Arthur Conan Doyle's tales of the immortal detective, Sherlock Holmes. In this sequel to A Study in Brimstone, we see more of the plight and thoughts of Dr. John Watson as he deals with the madman, in Denning's verse, known as Warlock Holmes. Holmes, in this incarnation, is an all-powerful but socially ignorant magician who can barely function in everyday life but can call upon the spirit [...]

    21. This book was so good! After the first book being my favourite Sherlock Holmes adaptation ever, I couldn't wait to finally read this book and it definitely didn't let me down! I loved how it picked up after the cliffhanger of the first book, and the relationship between Warlock and John has grown so much and still does, I absolutely loved it! I love how the stories are still so accurate to the originals and the final story is AMAZING! I was left on the edge of my seat not wanting to put the book [...]

    22. Some Favorite Quotes:"Lestrade, Miss Smith, won't you step inside?" said Holmes. "Mrs. Hudson, won't you bugger off?""Holmes!""What? We all want her to.""Immaterial!""You can't! I have a gun!""I see that, and it's very scary," said Holmes, giving Williamson's shoulder a reassuring pat, "but in just one moment, I'm about to have a Grogsson."I think part of me had been hoping just to sit back and cheer on my favorite sorcerer, with no personal say in the outcome of the evening's conflict. But no." [...]

    23. i received this book in a recent giveaway. i have always been a big fan of the sherlock holmes canon and all its variations. as i am also a paranormal reader i was really looking forward to the adventure combining the elements. i found myself asking as i turned the pages this satire, steampunk , tongue in cheek comedy or the absolute quirkiness of the narrative really held my interest. the author's remake of the hound of the baskervilles was thought provoking. i would reccommend this not only t [...]

    24. Following his first few adventures with Dr. Watson, the mad mage Warlock Holmes is dead. Mostly dead, anyway. He has a pulse, but he's also actively rotting, so Watson flings himself into a solo adventure to recover the resurrection crown. The duo reunited, they set off on more madcap escapades featuring horse racing, a tricycle fad, and the unspeakable boredom of the countryside. However, nothing can compare with their final undertaking: journeying to the moor to tackle the hell-hound harassing [...]

    25. A fun boon as expected. I enjoyed the spin on the old Sherlock stories. I was a bit thrown by some of the cases in the beginning after the crown and before Baskerville, while fun they felt almost like filler. I know they are meant to emulate classic Holmes and show Warlock's recovery but I kept waiting for Baskerville to start. I will say the very end helped tie them together. The Baskerville case was the real gem. I loved the build, the Warlock and Moriarty backstory and the final battle was we [...]

    26. I didn't like it quite as much as the first one, but I still had a lot of fun. I'll be the first to admit that half the time I had no idea what was going on, but this was written with such glee and panache, not to mention the outstanding narration, that I couldn't help but enjoy it. This one was a little too heavy on John Watson- the side characters, even Warlock, took a back seat in this one and I did feel like it suffered for that. But I also laughed aloud several times at the sheer hilarity o [...]

    27. The first one was funnier, but Denning cracked down to some real writing here when he got to the story of the Hell-Hound. OMG, pathos 'n everything! The adventure of the solitary tricyclist had me somewhat confused between bicycles and tricycles, but when I got that straightened out, the image of everyone on trikes with fake facial hair was pretty funny. Holmes's origins were artfully explained as well as his relationship with Moriarty. This is only the beginning though! Eeek!

    28. The title tells you, correctly, that this is a cross between the Lovecraft mythos and Sherlock Holmes. What it does not mention is that it is also the mutant love child of Jeeves and Wooster. This made for a hilarious romp which was the perfect read for a lazy afternoon off. I found myself wanting to read punchlines aloud from time to time, so decide whether that suits your personality before you take it on a train! :D
