Having finished Night Watch, I was eager to read Day Watch. At first, I was a bit disconnected from the book because it is not told from the point of view of the main character from Night Watch. That made it a bit more difficult for me to get excited about at first. As with Night Watch, Day Watch is broken into three stories. They are each separate stories, yet interconnected. The first story was where I had most of my difficulty with the narrative because it was told by a seemingly insignificant character from the first book. Nevertheless, it was a compelling tale and took the mythology of the watches to the next level. Of course, into the second story, the importance of the shift in narration becomes clear, and the second story grabbed--and held--my attention. It also introduces a "mirror," which is a different kind of "other" and plays an important role in the book series. By the final story of this book, we are formally introduced to the inquisition, which is a type of overseeing organization of both the Night Watch and of the Day Watch. It is in this third story where the two other stories are tied together--and it brings the entire book to a satisfying conclusion.

These books make me want to drink vodka. Great narration. Very intriguing story line. A great listen.
