The third installment of the Night Watch series is now back in print. If you already have read Night Watch: Book One and Day Watch: Book Two you'll be familiar with the Others, an ancient race of supernatural beings (magicians, shape-shifters, vampires, and healers) who have either sided with the powers of Darkness or the forces of Light in the struggle to control the planet.

Although they have maintained an uneasy truce for quite a while, the balance the Others have maintained is now threatened. An ancient book of spells has surfaced and within this tome there resides the special magic that can turn ordinary humans into Others.

The book has fallen into the wrong hands and now the Night Watch and the Day Watch must work together to make sure that the renegade who possesses the book doesn't set off a global confrontation.

The main character from Night Watch, Anton, is back in this next chapter of the much lauded sci-fi series. He is married now and has a daughter whose limitless potential as a Light Order makes the story interesting. Together these two will fight to avert the disaster that threatens to destroy Earth.

Sergei Lukyanenko is one of Russia's most heralded writers and this series has received international praise. Additional titles are being readied for release in North America, so if you aren't familiar with the Others, you better start reading because you have a lot of catching up to do!
