Anton Gorodetsky is just getting a feel for his new powers, when his boss, Gesar, sends him to assist the Scottish Night Watch in Edinburgh in a murder investigation. A young Russian man has been murdered - apparently by a vampire. But the mystery is more than it seems, and soon Anton is himself in danger. The murderer appears to be someone with intimate knowledge of the Night Watch. Before long, Anton realizes that a plot is being hatched by the forces of both darkness and light that - unless he can intervene - may mean nothing less than Armageddon.

Good end to a great series
The last watch is a bit different from the other books in the series. It still has the same 3 part format, but each part feels much more like a continuation than in the previous books, and the book also reads almost like a detective story. But none the less, it is still a great addition to the series because the characters are what really drive this series for me. I also felt that this one had a bit more action in it, which is a plus for me, as the second book in particular was a little slow for me. All in, a good end, which was left open for further adventures with the great night watch agent, a magician now beyond classification, Anton Gorodetskyi! Also, the narration was fantastic. Really helps to bring the characters to life.

Deep in the Twilight, Merlin's last riddle waits.
The forces of Light(The Night Watch) and the forces of Darkness(the Day Watch) have a truce, held to equilibrium by the Inquisition, despite a lot of sneaky underhanded plots to try and gain an upper hand. Now a shadowy group calling themselves 'The Last Watch' are breaking all the rules, seeking a hidden relic that might give them the power to end the world, or raise the dead.
There are three earlier books in this series, and I recommend reading them in order. Even so, there are parts where I find it very difficult to make sense of what is happening. The overall story is comprehensible, and I find the slippery parts a fair trade for the overall 'exotic' feel of something by an author whose background and culture is different than my own.
What I like best about this series is that the forces of Light are not really the good guys, though they think they are, and the while the Dark Others might just happen to be werewolves or vampires, it doesn't automatically make them evil. And the enemy you know is better by far than the one you don't.
