Description

Walking the streets of Moscow, indistinguishable from the rest of its population, are the Others. Possessors of supernatural powers and capable of entering the Twilight, a shadowy world that exists in parallel to our own, each owes allegiance either to the Dark or the Light. With wife Svetlana and daughter Nadya still away, spending the last of the summer on a dacha not far from Moscow, Night Watch Agent Anton Gorodetsky is trying to enjoy his last day off. But when a call comes in from Gesar - his Boss and Night Watch head - requesting a private meeting, it quickly becomes clear he's going back to work early...Gesar has received an anonymous note, stating that an Other has revealed the full truth about their kind to a human, and now intends to do the supposedly impossible: convert that human into an Other. Even more worryingly, the note has been sent to Zabulon head of the Day Watch, and to the Inquisition's offices in Berne - and only the very highest-level Others know the address. So the Inquisition has ordered the Night Watch to cooperate with the Day Watch and unmask the culprit. Anton will be the Night Watch representative, while the Day Watch is sending Kostya Saushkin, once Anton's teenage neighbour and idealistic friend, now a Higher Vampire and, at the age of twenty, the youngest in Europe...Set in a vividly realised post Soviet Moscow, where vampires operate under license and Good and Evil exist in a Cold War like balance of power, "The Twilight Watch" is a page-turning fantasy thriller in the allegorical, darkly comic tradition of Bulgakov's "The Master and Margarita", an international bestseller as strikingly original as Anne Rice or Philip Pullman.
