Book Description

6 Nov 2008

While on holiday in Scotland, visiting a macabre tourist attraction, 'The Dungeons of Edinburgh', a young Russian tourist is murdered. As the police grapples with the fact that the cause of the young man's death was a massive loss of blood, the Watches are immediately aware that there is a renegade vampire on the loose. Anton - the hero of The Night Watch and The Day Watch - is detailed to this seemingly mundane investigation, but on arriving in Scotland begins to realise that there is much more to the story than a wildcat vampire and a single murder.

Aided by Thomas, the head of Edinburgh's Night Watch, Anton investigates and ruminates, and becomes aware that a team of unlicensed Others are hunting for a fabled magical treasure, hidden in the sixth level of the Twilight by Merlin himself...

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely addition to the series 5 Jan 2009
By Seneska
Format:Paperback
I adored the trilogy and I waited eagerly for the fourth installment. Luckily I didn't have the missing chapter problem. The story feels more action-filled the than the previous ones, but balanced it with a hefty plot that managed to tie up some loose ends. As an extra bonus it was set in the city I live in. My one small quibble is that a lot happens in the last five or so pages, and with this as the end, I'd have liked something of an epilogue to see how the characters I've come to love go on. Apart from the abrupt finish I have no complaints, and would recommend the entire series to anyone. I'd like to have a word with whoever keeps filing it under horror in Waterstones, mind.

3.0 out of 5 stars watch out 3 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
As an avid fan of the "watch" trilogy, I had preordered this book as soon as I was able, and it arrived yesterday. It is as good as the other three except for one tiny problem: There is a chapter missing from the book!

My advice would be to hold off on buying this book until the publishers have noticed their (or their printers') mistake and have rectified it, as the missing chapter seems quite important to the story development!

Updated on 2nd Jan 2009:
Finally got back another copy of the book from the publishers and, thankfully, it contained the missing chapter.
The missing chapter discusses the Anton and Edgar piece among other things (a whole 18 pages! worth)
It was well worth emailing the publishers with the problem as I got the new copy free, as well as a coupon for a large discount off other titles AND free P&P.

Now that I have read the book in full, I would change my star rating to 5, but amazon won't seem to let me :O)

4.0 out of 5 stars Help is at hand for those with problem books 2 Jan 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
To all those who bought the book with the missing chapter... (and thanks for the "heads up" by the way, I appreciated the warnings!)

I've been in touch with Laurie Ip Fung Chun at William Heinemann Editorial and she has advised that ALL books are fine NOW. Those of you with problem books can obtain replacements by sending back the preliminary pages, along with the jacket/front cover to The Random House Group, 20 Vauxhall Bridge Road, London , SW1V 2SA.

I hope everyone gets the correct copy they deserve... eventually.

Hope you all have a happy 2009. Looking forward to reading this book now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forget Harry Potter 13 July 2009
Format:Paperback
Probably the most descriptive of the watch series so far. These books have blow me away. I have read many books, the potter series, lord of the rings. I am a massive Peter F hamilton fan. However the watch series has made me relise that fantasy can be just as addictive as sci fi. Maybe this last watch goes around the houses. But Again the story had me hooked. People will argue that other books are for all ages. This Series however combines History, Fantasy, and modern view points. When i read these books I dont think to myself, here we go another monster is going to cause mayhem. I get a personal connection with the monster. Yes the bad guys are bad, even the good guys over years had done wrong. But the real issue is humans are worse. We are the leeches, we give them power. In the end our world can be a amazing place. But its us who bring it down, good or evil.

4.0 out of 5 stars "All along the watchtower, princes kept the view 1 July 2009
By Leonard Fleisig TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.
Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl." Bob Dylan

And the winds of fantasy howl in "Final Watch" the fourth volume in Sergei Lukyanenko's "Night Watch Series". Two introductory notes: First, this is one series that is best read sequentially. I don't think a reader can pick up this volume and appreciate it fully given the recurring characters and their growth over time. I think the series is well worth reading and suggest that anyone interested start with volume 1, The Night Watch (Watch, Book 1), 2, The Day Watch (Watch, Book 2) and 3, The Twilight Watch (Watch, Book 3)
before taking on volume 4. This review therefore (for the sake of brevity) presumes some knowledge of the series. Second, despite its title "Last Watch" is not necessarily the `final' book in the series. The title does not indicate finality as much as it references an underlying theme in the book. So, Night Watch fans, don't despair. (I hope.)

"Last Watch" is a worthy volume in the series and fans of the series will not be disappointed. The plot is relatively straight-forward. Anton Gorodedesky is sent to Edinburgh to assist the Scottish Night Watch's investigation into the vampire-style murder of a Russian national. While there he uncovers a plot, actually a multi-party conspiracy involving the Night Watch, the Day Watch, and the Inquisitors. Rather than a straight--forward battle between the forces of good and evil, Anton must look beyond the normal allegiances and make critical decisions about who can and cannot be trusted. The book takes us from Russia, to Scotland, Uzbekistan and back to Russia.

I very much enjoyed the volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Watch... Fourth in the trilogy... 14 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
I've read the original "Night Watch" trilogy, and also watched the not-so-good Night Watch film, so when Amazon recommended The Last Watch to me, I jumped at the chance to read the latest offerring.

I got the book on the day I was flying to Edinburgh, where the main storyline for the book is set. I wasn't sure whether it was an ominous sign, but took it with me to read on the flight. I was so engrossed that I didn't hear a word of the safety briefings they gave at the start of the flight, and continued to read it until it was time to disembark.

The plot twists are imaginative and keep you on edge, and those familiar with Edinburgh will recognise places mentioned.

I've given the book 5 stars as it is a great book overall, and I hope Sergei chooses to right another one - not sure where he could/would take the story though!
