Warlock was the thirty-fourth New Adventures novel. It featured the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Bernice Summerfield. It was the second in a trilogy of linked novels; Cat's Cradle: Warhead was the first (published in 1992) and the third novel was Warchild (published in 1996).
Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
It was the ruthless pack instinct of the primeval forest. But warlock magnified it a thousand times and made it lethal.
Benny is working with an undercover cop, trying to track down its source. Ace is trapped in a horrific animal experimentation laboratory. But only the Doctor has begun to guess the terrible truth about warlock.
This disturbing sequel to Warhead moves beyond cyberpunk into a realm where reality is a question of brain chemistry and heaven or hell comes in the shape of a pill.
