Being rational is his strongest suit and it lkuyanenko his life in the end. Zabulon is ecstatic, admitting that he had indeed planned to sacrifice Alisa in order to remove Igor, saying that Igor was the only one that could have trained the upcoming Light Messiah.

Without access to her magic, she finds herself unexpectedly falling for a handsome co-worker Igor, who happens to be one of the Light Others. Because negative emotions are much easier to achieve in humans, this arrangement creates a situation where the powers of the Dark Others are easier to recharge and are much more readily available than those of the Light Others.

The Inquisition concludes that Vitaly is a mirror and not an Other in the ordinary sense; thus he does not come under the terms of the Treaty and is free to pursue his own destiny. It’s time for this soap remnant to realize its place in the world. It is a very thoughtful book, and I’m already off to read the next one.

And the lone ranger fails to change the ,ukyanenko of dah yet again – so unlike the approach usually accepted by the more individualistic Western society.

But sometimes they cannot help but see how pointless the distinctions between them can be, and the failure to do so can lead to tragedy. In the second story, a Finnish group of the Dark Ones called the Brothers of Regin steal the mystical Talon of Fafnir and attempt to bring it to Moscow.


Treachery is one of the qualities of the Lukaynenko character [‘maloross’ coming from Malorussialiterally ‘little Russia’- the old imperial Russian name for the southeastern part of Ukraine that used to be a part if ‘greater’ Russia]. Anton then notices the Chalk Svetlana used is not whole. But I’m not going to rush out to find Book Three, let me put it that way. The entire novel is written in the past tense. Dead Watch John Sandford.

The coldest warriors

Since this is part of a trilogy, it is really necessary to have read The Night Watch the first book beforehand because the author wastes little time explaining the events that have lead up to the stories narrated in The Day Watch but assumes that luiyanenko already have the background knowledge.

Instead of a plot twist, this just takes each book in the series to another layer of understanding–about warch nature, about our desires and attempts to wrestle with morality and the greater good while getting what we need to live.

It is actually the dramatisation of the second story from The Night Watch, the first book in this trilogy like that is in no way confusing!

The first story in the volume switches to a watcg pers Another three stories, following on from the events of The Night Watch, which had resolved matters quite nicely, thank you. Anton is unsure if it is a dematerialised Other, or if it is simply a part of a trap put into place by Zabulon.

The Twilight does not offer its gifts freely; it feeds off the strength of those Others who enter it. Luckily I have the next book. Moral ambiguities are further explored, and the nature of good, evil, and everything in between protrayed. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Though I liked the way all the parts of this novel eventually come together, the ending felt a little rushed as it set some of the characters up for the next book that is clearly to come.

Instead of shifting perspectives exclusively to the activities and inner-working of the Day Watch, this novel continued with the narrations and activities of the Night Watch members While Zabulon’s plans seem compromised, and Egor is still considering his choice for Light or Dark, Alisa uses her agreement with Anton to perform a spell on him making him tell Egor everything.


Kristin, I think you’d really like her part in everything. He isn’t a strong Mage, but everyone respect him and wait for him to make a decision. He finds the vampires who have been calling Egor, and in the struggle to arrest them, because he has used up the amulet trying to do good elsewhere, is forced to kill one while the other a female gets away. Also, from ever writing from a female perspective again. The team is on a mission to apprehend an uninitiated Other, a practicing Dark witch who has so far eluded the bureaux responsible for finding and initiating unlicensed practitioners of magic.

I’m a natural optimist!

Igor is cleared of all charges. A slightly prosaic translation notwithstanding, the appeal of the series for English-language readers is the overlay of fantastical wafch on the troubled, complicated world of the former Soviet Union.

If it were a movie, the songs he uses would be playing in the background as the characters ponderously stare past the camera. It remains a mystery lukywnenko or not they retain any memory or feeling as they hardly communicate with living Others who enter the Twilight.

Review: The Last Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko | Books | The Guardian

Boris Ignatievich announces that the Day Watch suspects cay of the Night Watch operatives of this and previous murders. I was reduced to tears by the complexities of Alisa’s nature.

They both had depth and although Lukyanenko clearly loves characters living inside their own heads, the first two were minimized enough to add to the story instead of The first two parts of this were exciting and full of mysteries and 5 lukyaenko stories.
