Day Watch is the second novel in the trilogy begun with Night Watch (my review here). As with Night Watch it’s a series of interrelated short stories chronicling the struggle between light and dark Others, but is told more from the perspective of the dark Others, which makes a nice change of pace.
With the settings and concepts mostly set up in Night Watch, and Lukyanenko more comfortable in his reality, Day Watch is faster moving and more emotionally charged.
It’s one of those few novels were you literally have no idea what’s going to happen next.
