They live among us. They fight among us. They're the Others, a supernatural race of magicians, shape-shifters, vampires, and healers. Divided into the Light and the Dark, these rival factions have spent a millennium under a reluctant truce. Now, however, both sides must unite against the ultimate enemy. A Light magician and high-ranking member of the Night Watch, Anton Gorodetsky fears nothing. But lately the threats are mounting.

The series is really good. The narrator does a fantastic job. I'm planning to see what other books he has done narrations for. This series is great. I saw the movies. The novels are infinitely better. My only complaint is that it had to end. However it was a better ending to a series than most. I would definitely recommend if you're a fan of the Dresden files.

The second installment 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.

In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

The story is fantastic . Both narrators are good . Sometimes characters sound a little to similar but enjoy the trading off of narrators.

It has been 20 years since the end of the war. The dictatorial Augurs, once thought of almost as gods, were overthrown and wiped out during the conflict, their much-feared powers mysteriously failing them. Those who had ruled under them, men and women with a lesser ability known as the Gift, avoided the Augurs' fate only by submitting themselves to the rebellion's Four Tenets.

This book was a great value. The story was okay. I thought the narration was good. I would definitely get another of these books if the cost is similar.

"You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely," notes Jack Reacher - and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA. Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott - an American marksman gone bad - is one of them...

Personal was a fizzle. I have read many of the Reacher novels and this was the worst. It was a disappointment. This might be due to the fact that this was the first one I listened to. The narrator used a different voice for each character. The voices for the women were creepy. They set a tone for the female characters that made listening unenjoyable. I usually would recommend the Jack Reacher novels. However with the creepy voices and a Jack Reacher that was not himself I would not recommend this book.
