Title: Last Watch
Series: Night Watch
Author: Sergei Lukyanenko
Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
Format: Kindle Digital Edition
Someone is trying to recover an artifact of power that Merlin himself created. In doing so, they are murdering both Light, Dark and Inquisition. They are using humans and modern weapons enspelled.
Anton is tasked by both Gesar and Zabulon to find out what is going on and secretly, to find this monumental artifact. Can Anton please all 3 branches of Others while fighting off a new group calling themselves the Last Watch and protect his daughter?
Former friends and foes come together in a new Watch story.
Good stuff! This tied in quite heavily to the previous book with the Vampire who wanted to turn everyone into an Other. This time around you have various members from each of the Branches trying to bring back dead Others, who live on the 6th level of the Twilight.
The 3 story setup works quite well once again. Anton isn’t angsty and his melancholy is almost non-existent, which is ok.
