Book Description

Walking the streets of Moscow, indistinguishable from the rest of its population, are the Others. Possessors of supernatural powers and capable of entering the Twilight, a shadowy world that exists in parallel to our own, each owes allegiance either to the Dark or the Light.



Night Watch Agent Anton Gorodetsky's holiday is abruptly shortened when an urgent call from Gesar - his boss and Night Watch head - forces him to return to work.



Gesar has received an anonymous note, stating that an Other has revealed the full truth about their kind to a human, and intends to convert the human in an Other. The note has also been sent to the Day Watch, and to the Inquisition - but only the very highest-level Others know the addresses. So the Inquisition orders the cooperation of Night and Day Watch in an effort to unmask the culprit...

`[a] dazzling fantasy' -- Telegraph

The third installment of the phenomenal Night Watch series; vampire novels set in a richly realised post-Soviet Moscow. Reminiscent of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials in its ambitions and achievement, the series has sold for huge advances all over Europe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous original Russian fantasy 10 Dec. 2007
Format:Paperback
I agree with the previous reviewers -- read the other two books first. I found this one first without knowing about the others and it was more enjoyable to revisit after the first two. The fantasy world is original, the stories have pace and are full of intrigue like a political novel, the characters, both Light and Dark, interesting, and the dialogue often funny. Each novel has three stories, each of which starts as a separate story but is in fact complexly intertwined with the previous history.
What gave these novels the edge for me is the setting of modern Russia, with its post-Soviet background, the new and the old still side by side, the Moscow street names, the run down trains... Now I understand something about the proper Russian way to drink vodka and why only Russians can do it right.
The camaraderie between the characters -- more with the Light ones -- is satisfying, the way they manage to have fun even though they're engaged in a permanent secret war with the other side, the occasional uneasy fraternizing with the enemy, all contribute to the enjoyment.
By the way, the blurb "Harry Potter, Russian style" on the book covers does not cut it at all, in my view. If you like fantasy and are looking for something original, dark but not dirty, and which may cause you to search your own heart for the good & evil that is there, then I think you'll be well served.

4.0 out of 5 stars Russian Dark Fantasy 27 Sept. 2007
By Wyvernfriend VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
So dark it's dancing with horror.

I would recommend reading this after the other two in the series, Night Watch and Day Watch and if you've read them a while ago refreshing your memory.

The story starts with Anton and an attempt to find out who revealed the existence of the Others to regular humans. After Anton has finished with this he joins his wife and child, who are on holiday and from there on in things get very involved and messy. The lines between good and bad are blurred and confused and Anton isn't usre of who to trust, who to believe and what way he should go.

It's interesting and the unfolding of the mythology of the Other world is quite well handled. I've enjoyed the series, I've found it interesting to have a darker view of the world, to contrast with a lot of the Vampire Romances I've been reading recently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third in the series, doesn't disappoint 3 Aug. 2007
Format:Paperback
I caught 'Night Watch' when it came out on film in the UK, because ... well, it was Russian, fantasy and modern day setting.

I was stunned by the quality of the work, especially given the rather limited budget they had available.

So I picked up Night Watch when I saw it available.

Twilight Watch is the third in the series. I've loved every page so far, and this one remains on good solid form. It follows the usual format, of 3 stories in one book, that seem only peripherally linked. But it remains a fascinated and compelling setting, with characters that are interesting and complicated, but at the same time have a rough human edge to them.

A glorious book, and a very worthwhile read. But catch Night Watch and Day Watch first - whilst this one does actually stand alone fairly well, it's worth getting some of the history in place beforehand.

5.0 out of 5 stars As entertaining as the previous two books 21 Jan. 2009
By Mr BD TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A slight change to the previous format. Yet again there are three stories within this book, but the link between all three is more obvious. In the previous books it wasn't until the last story that the joins became apparent.
As well written as the previous books in the series, with insights into Russian life and behaviour. At one small section I do suspect the author's own opinions of the 'breakaway states' comes to the fore (it's almost a rant), but it doesn't detract from the mood of the piece at all.
The whole story relates to the discovery of a book that was thought to exist only in myth - detailing the process needed to turn any 'normal' human into an Other; the rumours of it's existence, the discovery and theft of it. Within this series of stories the power of the Others is explained to some degree, and the amount of dependency that they have upon 'normal' humans. It also describes the deeper levels of the Twilight and how each level affects those using it.
(As an aside, I find it interesting that what is referred to as the Twilight in the books is called the Gloom in the films, and I think the Twilight is a far better name. Slightly different interpretations of the same Russion word.)
As with the two previous books, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although reading those books first is not vital to this volume, it would make understanding the whole concept a good deal easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 3 of 4: Metamorphosis from Light to Dark? 2 Jun. 2007
By Mao
Format:Hardcover
This particular edition "Sumerechnyi Dozor" is a Russian publication, but the German version of "Twilight Watch" has been available for some time and the English version is about to be released this summer.

"Twilight Watch" follows "Night Watch" and "Day Watch" and anticipates "Eternal Watch" (available already in Russian and German).

In this third instalment of the series of four the son of the leader of Moscow's Night Watch blackmails a stranger into altering him to become an "Other", a member of the forces of Light or Dark, which has previously been believed an impossible feat. The novel follows the Night Watch's attempts at uncovering who this stranger is. This novel is a direct continuation of the previous books regarding background story and main characters, although some former secondary characters have become more important.

Described as Russia's (belated) answer to Tolkien, Lukianenko has created a lively and absorbing narrative evolving around the forces of the Light and the Dark, who, embraced in an eternal battle for the minds and spirits of the human population, share the responsibility to monitor each other's activities to uphold an equilibrium agreed upon a thousand years ago in the "Great Contract". Thus both forces have set up units tasked to control each other, making sure the respective other side observes granted quota of influencing humans: at night, the wizards and shapeshifters of the Light (the Night Watch) will police the streets, while at day it is the vampires and witches of the Dark (the Day Watch) who monitor the Light's activities.

I'd read the preceding two books so was interested to see how I'd enjoy this one. It was actually the best one yet. Quite philosophical at times and enjoyed it immensely.
