Publisher's Summary

The second instalment of the phenomenal Russian quartet The Night Watch vampire novels set in a richly realized post-Soviet Moscow.The second book in the internationally bestselling fantasy series, The Day Watch begins where The Night Watch left off, set in a modern-day Moscow where the 1,000-year-old treaty between Light and Dark maintains its uneasy balance through careful vigilance from the Others. The forces of darkness keep an eye during the day, the Day Watch, while the agents of Light monitor the nighttime. Very senior Others called the Inquisitors are the impartial judges insisting on the essential compact. When a very potent artifact is stolen from them, the consequences are dire and drastic for all sides. The Day Watch introduces the perspective of the Dark Ones, told in part by a young witch who bolsters her evil power by leeching fear from childrens nightmares as a counselor at a girls summer camp. When she falls in love with a handsome young Light One, the balance is threatened and a death must be avenged.
The Day Watch is replete with the thrilling action and intricate plotting of the first tale, fuelled by cunning, cruelty, violence, and magic. It is a fast paced, darkly humorous, haunting world that will take root in the shadows of your mind and live there forever.

Very entertaining

This book is very entertaining and I could not stop until I had read the whole book. I loved the mix of characters and the plot of the book. You can listen to the book whilst basking in the sun in the park or whilst taking a walk. Absolutely beautiful.

Great series

I love fantasy and mild sci-fi books, and own the paperbacks of this series. But with lots of long journeys this year I decided to get these audio books for in the car, to help keep me interested and awake!



Great story, the whole series is great and would recommend. The narration is good, once you get past the odd (to me!) change from narration in an American accent, switching to a Russian(ish) accent when speaking as a character. But then I'm from the UK and it just seemed a little odd to me. Good narration though, and good quality audio.
