Description

The final chapter in Sergei Lukyanenko's internationally bestselling Night Watch series--a revelatory urban fantasy set in contemporary Moscow.

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. A reincarnated vampire has been terrorizing Moscow. His daughter's school is ambushed by a bizarre chimera. And the Prophets have all reached the same chilling conclusion: The world will end in five days.

To ward off the apocalypse, an ancient council called the Sixth Watch must be assembled. After both Light and Darkness select their emissaries, Anton must enlist the unwilling aid of the four other Great Parties: the Vampires, the Witches, the Form-Takers, and the enigmatic Foundation. Journeying from Russia to Paris, the Alps, and New York City, Anton comes in peace--but he is prepared for war. For if he fails, none are safe.

A SINISTER MESSAGE, A DIRE PROPHECY, AND AN ENEMY UNLIKE ANYTHING THE NIGHT WATCH HAS EVER FACED

For a millennium, the Others, a supernatural race of magicians, shape-shifters, vampires, and healers, have maintained an uneasy peace between Light Others and Dark Others that has protected both our world and the Twilight, a shadowy parallel world beneath our own. Now, these rival factions 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. A reincarnated vampire has been terrorizing Moscow, and is using the victims to send him a message. His daughter's school is ambushed by a chimera unlike any he has seen. And the Prophets have all reached the same chilling conclusion: Our world is running out of time.

If we are to stand a chance, the rival factions of Others must unite against this evil as the Sixth Watch. But can they put aside their grievances with the world at stake? Will it be enough? Journeying from Russia to Paris, the Alps, and New York City, Anton comes in peace--but he is prepared for war. For if he fails, no one is safe.

Review quote

Lukyanenko's vision of a bustling supernatural world that's just out of sight is just as wryly bewitching as it ever was, and there's a real sense of warm familiarity to the characters. . . Lukyanenko continues to blend roaring fantasy action set pieces with an engaging collection of blue-collar heroes working to remind these beings of their better natures. -- Scifinow.co.uk
