Review //\\ Clockwork Stalker

Clockwork Stalker by Cari Silverwood

Step aside Benedict Cumberbatch, there is a new sexiest Sherlock Holmes on the block.


With Clockwork Stalker, Cari Silverwood has brought us a delightfully immoral, deliciously depraved, titillatingly kinky and scorchingly hot deviant tale. A Sherlock Holmes with a gloriously malevolent and sinfully corrupt side to his personality. Also a Moriarty with a succulent body, a sardonic wit and a burning desire for all the bad things that cross Sherlock’s mind.

“How very nicely you behaved. You deserve a reward. Miss Moriarty, have you ever pleasured yourself as I pleasured you with my knee?”
Tersely, she shook her head, and he noted how she fought to minimise her inhalations.
“Good.” Sherlock reached out and tilted her face upward with the nudge of his knuckles under her chin. “Because you’re going to do it for me, next. I’ve seen how whores do it and am happy to instruct you.”
Her hushed 
no was delightfully horrified.

The writing, the world building, the description, the language and feel of this story held me spellbound. I was inspired to highlight phrases and passages that called to me, ending up with over 50 of them! I wanted to grab this story, squeeze it between my clutching fingers, wring every drop of filth, depravity and kink into my mouth and devour its glory in side my lecherous soul.


I wanted to be the blissfully tormented, pleasurably teased and satisfyingly sated Wilhelmina. I lusted after being the plaything of my own malignantly affected Sherlock. Oh the degradation, the humiliation, the torment, the dominance, the red-hot down and dirty sex. Yeah, I’m probably oversharing but I could totally be down for most of that. The retractor? Hmm. No!  Maybe? *shudder*.

He rose from the chair, and she had to tilt back her head to keep a proper watch on him.
Funny, but she’d forgotten how tall the man was. Lord. Make that dominating, ruthless, evil and a whole lot of other adjectives that were managing to drive her insane with lust as well as slide a modicum of fear beneath her ribs.
“Very nice. Your legs and bust are duly recorded as being magnificent.”
Well.
“Sir, I am still a lady. Whatever you make me do is not to be counted against me.”
“You lodge a protest?” He smiled. “Noted. Discarded. I plan to see more of you, every part, naked, any time I ask you, even while we work on this machine of yours. Don’t ever think otherwise.”

I’ve not even mentioned the actual story, with all its little Easter Eggs to unwrap along the way. From monkey paws to strange symbols.
Fantastic.
As always.
Brilliant, inspired and unpredictable.
But the sex… sigh. I have a hankering for some kitty ears.


Wilhelmina is unapologetically independent, snarky and revels in the acts forced upon her. Even when she protests. Even if she doesn’t mean those protests. Sherlock is dark, demanding and so, so dominant, he is grumpy, surly, closed off and icily aloof. Oh how the mighty fall! Right on top of a set of soft, pillowy bosoms in his case.

You are my Satan, my evil lust demon, and I’m sure you have invisible horns and a tail tucked away somewhere.”

Wilhelmina, Clockwork Stalker by Cari Silverwood.

Strictly speaking this is a gaslamp novel, rather than steampunk. Who knew that was a thing? It means it has more of a paranormal element, rather than the sci-fi background that steampunk arises from. The paranormal part is very minimal, based around a malignant energy force and a small event during the end battle, so even those who don’t normally read the genre should still enjoy this.

He had his excuse to punish, to defile, to violate…..
The power in this.
The sexual power.
He wanted to engrave it on his soul.
And yet, he knew she wanted this.  Her willingness made it less interesting, if anything.  Perhaps he could exceed her expectations?
Make her worry.  Fear him?

What if the storybook hero becomes the villain?
She is my arch enemy’s niece.
I am an arrogant, controlling bastard, an excellent detective, and women are turning up dead and bound, with strange marks on their bodies.
This is the least appropriate time for me to fall in lust with the enemy.
Obsession is the sign of a man who is losing control.
Be punctual for this appointment, Miss Moriarty.
I have things I need to do. Filthy, perverted things.
