  • „There are far more reasons for death than there are for life.”After a bit bleak third book, Watch is back on top. It may not be better than Night Watch, but it's definitely my favourite book in the series. The saga is still one big festival of misogyny, but at least it's extraordinary written, and I genuinely enjoy the humour. People should have an open mind, while reading this, because sometimes it aims for reaction. The novel opens with a murder in Edinburgh where the victim’s blood was [...]

  • This review is acceptable to the forces of Light. - The Night WatchThis review is acceptable to the forces of Darkness. - The Day WatchWhen I finished The Twilight Watch a couple of years ago, I thought that was it. Night, Day, Twilight, done. But when I announced that I would be doing the Night Watch trilogy as my end-of-month podcast, I got several emails from listeners who were quick to correct me. The series is not a trilogy, they said, but rather a tetralogy (okay, no one actually used this [...]

  • Öncelikle, sayfa sayısı olarak serinin en kısasıydı: 408 sayfa. O nedenle "biraz daha!" diyerek bitirdim kitabı. Diğer kitaplara göre erken ayrıldık. Tadı damağımda kaldı.Şimdi,1. kitapta Aydınlık'ı gördük. 2. kitapta Karanlık'ı gördük. 3. kitapta (o efsane kitap) Alacakaranlık'ın ve Diğer olmanın gerçek özünü gördük. 4 bize ne anlatacaktı peki? Eh, Aydınlık ve Karanlık'ın, Gece ile Gündüz Nöbeti'nin amaçlarının aynı olduğu bir kitap bu.Kitap 3 öy [...]

  • I am an utter, unapologetic Anton fangirl. I will not deny it. And when I finally managed to find a copy of The Last Watch at Borders, I did not hold back my squeal of joy.Though not as good as the first three, this remains one of my favorite fantasy series. At times the writing seemed lazy, the humor was a little more base than what I had come to expect, and certain parts were more self-aware (of the popularity of the books/movies, at times a not-so-subtle *nudgewink* to the reader without any [...]

  • Bundan üç yıl kadar önce, bu serinin ilk kitabı olan "Gece Nöbeti" için kaleme aldığım inceleme yazısında şöyle bir giriş yapmıştım: “Bu Rusların nasıl bir kafa yapısı var arkadaş? Adamların doğaüstü şeylere kafası çok feci basıyor. Atmosferinden tutun ince detaylarına kadar her şeyi o kadar iyi dokuyorlar ki kıskanmamak elde değil!”Ve ne mutlu ki 3 yıl sonra da olsa, Son Nöbet’i okuyup bitirdiğimde bu seriyi neden bu kadar çok sevdiğimi, neden ilk k [...]

  • Kitabı genel olarak beğendim ama serinin final kitabının finali olarak biraz sönük kalmış. Devamı gelebilecek bir şekilde bırakılmış, yazarın tercihi sanırım daha sonra zaten 5. kitap da çıkmış. Daha vurucu bir şekilde bitebilirdi sanki. Nöbet serisinden alışkın olduğumuz iyi/kötü arasında bir yerde, grilikler içinde dolaşmaya devam ediyoruz. Önceki kitaplarda aslında iyi ve kötünün sorgulanması, farkları ve ortak noktaları daha detaylı işleniyordu. Eski [...]

  • I love the Night Watch series by Lukyanenko. He has such a wonderfully Russian (by way of Kazakhstan) view point, where good and evil really do not look very different but are all shades of grey. All 4 books in this series grabbed me from page 1 and did not let go. The Last Watch was no exception. At first I was annoyed at some of the Anglo/Celtic themes in this 4th installment, but they were handled very well and did not become cheesy. I highly recommend this whole series. Read them in order (N [...]

  • I think I've said this before but might as well say it again. I love this series. Absolutely. The writing style, the characters, the universe created is so vivid and alive. I had been putting off reading this installment, sad because it's the last book. Although I do hold out hope, like many fans, that there will be more to come. I sadly, saw the movies before reading the books, but I still feel that both (the movies and the books) are very well written in their own right, and even though they v [...]

  • The russians definitely do not think the same way we do - it's interesting to see how much culture can influence basic beliefs, and how much basic beliefs will resist cultural influences.The 4th of 4 books in a series exploring a war between - not good and evil. The dark and the light, or the yin and the yang. In the beginning of the series, it was clear one side was good and the other was evil. In the middle, it became a question of priorities - one side thought society was more important than [...]

  • Not as much to my liking as the earlier books in the series--this lacked the deep intrigue and scheming between the Light and Dark (or perhaps as much between Gesar and Zabulon as individuals) that made the earlier novels such fun. Still, a good read, and hopefully NOT the last of the Watches--there are still stories to be told, and I'd love to see what comes of little Nadya, and to find out why Zabulon seems to take such a personal interest in Anton

  • * Konu klasik uygulama da yer yer sırıtmalar var. Bir önceki kitapta Rusya dışında da yazabileceğini göstermişti. Bir de Türki ülkelere el atmasının yanı sıra sayısız defa bir öykünün içine yedirilen etkenlerinden biri olan Merlin ve Kral Arthur'u da hikayesine eklemişti. ** Fakat genel serinin kalitesinde bir kitap olmuş. Lukyanenko çizgisini bozmadan yazmayı başarabiliyor. Diğer kitabı bekleyelim bakalım.

  • The Watch series started off with a wimp, base level wizard and expanded to depths and lengths that IMHO no one could anticipate. I can't say much more without revealing too much. The reason I'm bringing this up however is because the fourth book only had one way to go. It had to push the envelop further. And it does.Some of the other reviewers said that the book feels less polished than the previous ones. I don't know if I agree with that. I still feel the good vs evil war, excessively so as a [...]

  • So this is the fourth and, as far as I know, final book in the Night Watch series. Once again, Anton is our main character and narrator. Some time has passed since the events of Twilight Watch and Anton has continued getting accustomed to his new powers as a Great One. The book starts with a murder in Scotland that will see Anton traveling, meeting a number of other Watches, and coming face to face with the dead.Simply put, if you liked the other Night Watch novels, you’ll probably dig this on [...]

  • Unlike the other books in the series, the three acts of this book all focus very clearly around a singular story. This may have been a choice by the other to reflect Anton's newfound awareness after the events of Twilight Watch.In Act one Anton is on loan to the Edinburgh Nightwatch to pursue the murderer of a young man whose father is well connected. The story becomes complicated when mortals armed with magical weaponry attack Anton and his allies, and it becomes apparent that the site of the m [...]

  • A very nice series that sets up an interesting and intricate urban fantasy world. As a native Russian speaker, I found the translation severely lacking, but that is, of course, not the author's fault. English speakers might get bogged down with the names (for example, the alternate use of names like Nadezhda - Nadya - Nadyushka, or Valeria - Lera, or Victor - Vitya, and so on, presents a bit of a cognitive hump for those Readers who are not familiar with Russian names and nicknames). Overall, th [...]

  • I love this series so much so my opinion is probably biased. It's definitely one that I will be rereading. I think the author did a fantastic job from books 1-4!

  • This book is a late follow up to the "Watch" trilogy and if you haven't read those books you might want to skip this review, because I'm going to refer to it and hence there will be spoilers.The Last Watch picks up on Moscow's Nightwatch several years after the closing events of The Twilight Watch. It's a new millenium, Anton Gorodetsky, principle protagonist of the trilogy, is using an mp3 player on his mobile phone instead of a mini-disc player, his stupendously magically talented daughter is [...]

  • I had an interesting discussion about this book with one of my coworkers, who read it in it's original Russian form. He felt that the first two books were great, but that it went downhill when the power levels of the Leads (Anton, Sveta, etc) went up to high. I didn't have an issue with this type of escalation, as it tends to happen in Fantasy series in general, but I would agree that there may not be much further to take any of these characters. That's sad, in a way, because his world of two ba [...]

  • Il solito, grazieDevo ammettere che leggere questo libro a così tanta distanza da tutti gli altri, ha raffreddato un po' le emozioni per questo genere particolare. Luk'janenko è riuscito a creare una storia interessante, che descrive un mondo comunque triste, legato al suo classico rovescio della medaglia, dove esiste la magia e tutto quello che ruota attorno, ma ci sono sempre i soliti problemi irrisolvibili e irrimediabili di un mondo in cui si usa più energia di quanta si possa guadagnarne [...]

  • These aren't good books from a technical standpoint but there's some alchemy at work that makes them damn hard to put down. I loved the new settings--Samarkand and Edinburgh--and this book did a nice job recapping the 3 that came before.

  • So, I spent a really unreasonable amount of time waiting for and then looking for the Harper paperback release of Last Watch. I waited so long that the fifth book in the series was published stateside and my copy actually started to gather dust on my shelf. Eventually I contacted Harper Collins which prompted a very curt autoreply informing me that they didn’t have the publication rights. Although the Random House imprint they directed me to doesn’t seem to have the U.S. rights either, so… [...]

  • I had read this book before, back when it first came out in paperback, and last time I rushed through it in the space of a day. This time took a while longer, maybe due to lack of time, or perhaps I just wasn't as into it this time around. It's still one of my favourites though. With another excellent translation by Andrew Bromfield, this carries on beyond the original trilogy (although I did wonder why Gesar became Geser in this one—it kept making me think of him as "geezer".)Once again this [...]

  • Okay I have been growing into a big fan of Sergei Lukyanenko's book series starting with Night Watch and continuing through until the fourth entry (I know there's a fifth, I'll get to that when I get to that) and unlike the other books where I felt they went better and better here he kind of went into a little slump. I mean don't get me wrong - It's a good book but maybe I had too high expectations for it or something else entirely.The plot is less like three divided stories and more like a flow [...]

  • Book Review: 1 Treasure BoxThe stories all comprise the missing, hidden artifact of the great and famous Merlin, known as the Crown of All Things. Someone is searching for this artifact and will do almost anything to find it including murder. It is up to Anton, using his magical skills as well as his detective reasoning to discover what the artifact is, who is looking for it and why they want it. We also learn more about the world that Anton lives in, including all the levels of the Twilight and [...]

  • I really look forward to these books and wait patiently for them to come out. This one was no exception and it provided just what is always promised with his books. They are a bit formulaic in format which is fine, because he weaves a good story. Let me say this first, I love this series, and I get sucked into them, however, they are no great literary works. I also finally put my finger on what has bothered me for all four books. They move along a a great easy pace he lays the groundwork in two [...]

  • This book follows up the Night Watch trilogy and takes a slightly different approach than the previous books. This time there is effectively only the one story told in three parts, which on one hand I did prefer as it felt more complete but on the other I also missed the mix of stories of the previous books. We also find ourselves outside of Russia, exploring the streets of Edinburgh and the tales of Merlin as an Other not just the wizard/magician many of us are familiar with (I really enjoyed t [...]

  • While I adore the world that Luky has created, I believe there's much that is lost in translation. and then there are parts that just don't make sense. I guess the issue I have is that this world has great magicians that are extremely powerful so how do some things get by them? How did Geser & Zabulon not know that Anton was kidnapped? Or were they aware and this was part of the plan? WE NEVER FIND OUT. that's an issue. You can't have these all-powerful magicians and then have them be so fuc [...]

  • Partioissa on tällä kertaa maailmanlopun meininki. Edinburghissa on vampyyri valuttanut yhden kaverin kuiviin Yöpartion paikallisjohtajan omistamassa huvipuistossa ja Anton lähetetään sekä hyvisten, että pahisten edustajana tutkimaan juttua. Huvipuiston alta paljastuu kätketty Merlinin aarre joka lienee voimallisin taikaesine maan päällä tai alla ja maan päältä taas paljastuu epäpyhä salaliitto. Rruumiita tulee ja taikauus virtaa melkein yhtä vuolaana kuin veri eivätkä edes k [...]
