    Great Detective story

    This series is classic detective/ beat cop genre with a vampiric/magical twist. The characters are interesting and likable. A good entertaining read, very cleverly executed.

    While not directly related to the book, and only indirectly thro

    While not directly related to the book, and only indirectly through his author, I'm struggling with finding a better channel to communicate this. My apologies to those who might find it inappropriate. I hope that at least some people who might be considering patronizing Mr Lukyanenko by purchasing his books will find this information to be of interest, however.

    I'm sure that everyone has heard about the recent events on Ukraine. It's making quite a splash in Russia, too, and Mr Lukyanenko was quick to make some statements in his blog. In particular, on February 22 - in the aftermath of the three bloodiest days of the protest, during which over 80 people died in a hail of bullets - he has this to say to an Ukrainian commenter:

    "There is no such country as Ukraine, and there shall never be. Either it will be a part of Russia, or else a Polish protectorate."

    "Ukraine is, henceforth, a cursed land, which have to redeem its villainy and cowardice for three generations to come."

    This outburst was triggered by the fact that some of Mr Lukyanenko's colleagues in Ukraine have vocally supported the protesters and even took part in the protests themselves. Addressing them specifically, he made some more specific threats:

    "To the Ukrainian fiction writers ... if any of the writer 'persons' that glorified the Maidan [Independence Square in Kiev on which the protesters clashed with police] and maidaners, who, at the same time, write in Russian and publish in Russia, will try to appear on any of the Russian [writer] conventions - I will stand against it. If they will want to publish in Russia - I will use all my power to stop them. Have some integrity, bastards! I shall no longer travel to Ukraine, participate in Ukrainian conventions, and forbid the translation of my works to Ukrainian."

    Speaking of integrity, it should also be noted that Mr Lukyanenko believes that the events in Ukraine are plotted by Western countries, and US in particular, in order to destabilize the region to the detriment of Russia. He did not, however, make claims similar to the above with respect to publishing in those countries, or translating his books to English. So it is up to you, as a prospective buyer and reader, to take all of the above into account and act according to your conscience.

    Good ending to an entertaining series.

    I liked 'Last Watch' a lot. It kept me wanting to read more. I would say all of the books in the series were equally enjoyable, and 'Last Watch' produced an enjoyable conclusion that did not disappoint and left possible room for future adventures. If 'Night Watch' or the other books were entertaining reading for you, 'Last Watch' will continue to amuse you with new twists to this urban fantasy series.

    Excellent addition to an amazing series.

    These books really are spectacular and this one does not disappoint. A complex tapestry of characters amid a great story with plenty of intrigue. And hey, you really can't go wrong bringing Merlin and his toys into the mix.

    I Also Recommend:

    The Fourth in an Excellent Series.

    This Series of books by Sergei Lukyanenko is an excellent take on a modern supernatural world. This book spends most of it adventure in England, so if you loved the gritty Russian environment of the other books, you may like the change.

    Great Ending to this Wonderful Series.

    Sergei Lukyanenko does not disappoint with his final book in the Night Watch series. This book was a wonderful completion to the previous three books. Sergei Lukyanenko leaves you both fulfilled with the storyline and yet somehow wanting for more.

    Loved it, Favorite out of Series.

    I loved this one, I love how this one had a complete story in it. It didn't leave any lose ends. The story was a great page turner... Read it all in one sitting :) .... I have to say that I really hope this isn't "The Last Watch." :)
