Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell by Paul Kane

cover90653-medium

Description:

Sherlock Holmes faces his greatest challenge yet when he meets the Cenobites, the infamous servants of hell.

Late 1895, and Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr John Watson are called upon to investigate a missing persons case. On the face of it, this seems like a mystery that Holmes might relish – as the person in question vanished from a locked room – and something to occupy him other than testing the limits of his mind and body.

But this is just the start of an investigation that will draw the pair into contact with a shadowy organisation talked about in whispers and known only as ‘The Order of the Gash’. As more and more people go missing in a similar fashion, the clues point to a sinister asylum in France and to the underworld of London. However, it is an altogether different underworld that Holmes will soon discover – as he finds himself face to face not only with those followers who do the Order’s bidding on Earth, but those who serve it in Hell: the Cenobites…

My Review:

When I first saw this book I was interested to see where this book was going to go, and I thought it was going to be hard to place Sherlock in the Cenobite world but I’m so glad I was wrong. Mr. Kane was able to capture a wonderful blend of the two worlds. It was such a fun read I could really picture it as a movie. Holmes was on point and I enjoyed this version of the cenobites and the battle. I really felt bad for Watson, especially toward the end. A part of me would like a sequel but in truth the way it ended was perfect. Overall I would recommend it to fans of Sherlock Holmes and horror fans.

5 out of 5 stars
