The Day Watch

Book Review   by:mikeyleeray     Original Author: Sergei Lukyanenko
ª
 
In the follow-up to Lukyanenko''s The Night Watch, The Day Watch, our
story begins with the tale of a Dark one and member of the Day Watch, a
witch called Alisa Donnikova. After being drained of her powers, she is
sent by the head of the Watch, Zabulon to recuperate. Everything seems
to be going well for her as she goes about her recovery but little does
she know that every step has been calculated in advance and that she is
nothing but a pawn in a game that the two chiefs of the opposing
Watches, Zabulon and Gesar have been playing since time immemorial.

While staying at the Artek camp, Alisa will meet the one person that
will change not only her destiny but who may very well play an
important part in altering the balance between Light and Dark. The
peace between these two forces is an uneasy one at the best of times
and it is only strained further by the appearance in Moscow of a new
stranger, Vitaly Rogoza. Who he is and who he works for remains a
mystery but what he is will be the greatest mystery of all. It is
something the two watches, Night and Day alike are both dying to find
out.

Finally, we come to the subject of the Inquisition. In the city of
Prague, a tribunal will decide the fate of Light Magician and Night
Watch member, Igor Teplov. But who is Teplov exactly and why does he
play such an important role in Zabulon''s latest intrigues and plans?
Acting as prosecutor for the Night Watch is the tireless hero Anton
Gorodetsky. Don''t be dissuaded from reading this by comparisons to J.K.
Rowling as these comparisons are wholly unfounded. In terms of depth,
Rowling''s Harry Potter series represents but a kiddie pool while
Lukyanenko''s is the ocean, deep, vast and full of mysteries and new
discoveries.
