Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A frightening new danger arises to threaten the Twilight. . . .

For a millennium, the Others have maintained an uneasy peace that has protected them and the Twilight, a shadowy parallel world beneath our own. But the battle for supremacy between the forces of the Light and the Darkness is far from over. . . .

Now older and more powerful, Light magician Anton Gorodetsky has risen to the top levels of the Night Watch. He is also father to a ten-year-old girl who is destined to become a magician of unprecedented power. When he hears a young boy at the airport screaming that a plane will crash, Anton suspects the child is a prophet—a rare type of Other who portends catastrophe.

If Anton is right, then the boy has awakened a terrifying danger—a rare, multifaced beast that exists to stop the prophecy from coming true. With their lives in mortal peril and time running out, Anton must find a way to keep his gifted young daughter safe . . . and save the Twilight itself.

Review:

"Lukyanenko's fifth Night Watch novel (after 2008's The Last Watch) featuring members of the Others, magical beings grouped into the Light Ones and the Dark Ones, succeeds in its playful approach to the supernatural thriller genre. The plot centers on the consequences of a chance meeting at the Moscow Airport, where Anton Gorodetsky, a Higher White Magician encounters a child, Innokentii Grigorievich Tolkov, who's really a Prophet, a rare type of Other who can predict his own fate, and who is being stalked by a Twilight Creature known as a Tiger. While the stakes are unsurprisingly high, frequent injections of humor help separate this entry from the pack; at one point, characters discuss how the publication of the Harry Potter books has helped them convince young Others that they are not exactly human ('Children grasp the basic idea without even a blink now')."
