Publisher's Summary

This is the next heart-stopping chapter in the Night Watch series.

Walking the streets of our cities are the Others. These men and women have access to the Twilight, a shadowy parallel world of magical power that exists alongside our own. Each has sworn allegiance to one side, fighting for the Light, or the Darkness. But now, beyond the continuing struggle comes a peril that threatens their very world....

At Moscow airport, Higher Light Magician Anton Gorodetsky overhears a child screaming that a plane is about to crash. He discovers that the child is a prophet: an Other with the gift of foretelling the future. When the catastrophe is averted, Gorodetsky senses a disruption in the natural order, one that is confirmed by the arrival of a dark and terrifying predator. From the Night Watch headquarters Gorodetsky travels to London, to Taiwan and across Russia in search of clues, unearthing as he goes a series of increasingly cataclysmic prophecies. He soon realises that what is at stake is the existence of the Twilight itself - and that only he will be able to save it.

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    Story
    "A must for fans of the Night Watch series"

    This is the 5th book in the night watch series. If you are a fan you definitely want to spend a credit on this one. While not as epic in scope as the previous books, it is a solid read that is thoroughly enjoyable.

    You can really tell the difference that this is a Russian author as opposed to the British and American authors I normally read. The book and series is quite dark in places, often with a strong streak of nihilism included. The endings in this series are usually not "happy" but are satisfying.

    The world and characters are well developed to the point you almost feel like if you were in Russia you might run into them. The stories in this series are compared to chess matches between the higher powers with the protagonist trying to find his way through and survive. He never really knows what is going on for certain until the endgame. I really like that level of mystery.

    The narrarator does a great job, but moves between Russian accents in conversation and a standard almost monotone English even though all the characters are Russian. This takes a bit of getting used to and leads to adding and dropping of accents at times. It doesn't impact the performance but it was noticable to me.

    This novel could be read stand-alone but the reader will enjoy it much more and get a fuller experience by listening to the books in order. This one is definitely worth spending a credit on and I hope the author keeps the series going.

    Story
    "Very disappointed. Ended with no meaning...."
    What disappointed you about The New Watch?

    I felt in the end the story was anti climactic and pointless.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The first 4 books in this series were awesome! I don't know what happened. It's like the author had no passion left for it and just wanted it to end.

    Story
    "Captivating very captivating."

    Is this the last book? I hope not. I almost cried at the end. It took a little bit to get used to listening to the first book. The narrator brought the story to life. It has been fun following Antoine's adventures. I am interested in seeing how Nadia develops and how she strengthens her skills. And I wonder if Slvedvana will return to the watch? A very enjoyable listen. I finished this book in three days as opposed to simply listening to it in my spare time everything else had to come to a stop. As I said very very captivating!

    Story
    "Excited"

    I was so very excited when I found a new Night Watch book was out, and this one was not a disappointment. It picks up slightly after the Last Watch. Same characters. New story. New Story line. Even set up that he can continue the watch. And I will say this, he twisted and twisted the end all the way to the last moment of the story. There is not much I can say about the story without giving away the plot to it, but to say it is as amazing as the last four have been and if you enjoyed them grab this one. Even if you haven't heard them you can grab this one, it is not 100 % that you need to read the first ones to understand it, just slightly helpful if you have.

    With the same narrator the stories maintain a cohesive whole and is in my opinion the perfect voice for these stories.
