    • Here's the fifth volume in Lukyanenko's Watch series about the precarious truce between Light and Dark Others and the various goings on related to it in contemporary Moscow. Now, if you don't already know what the Others and the Watches are, you could get away with starting here; there is enough re-capitulation of the basic scenario, but you would be a lot better off starting at the beginning with the Night Watch, where we are introduced to Anton.Anton is a Light Magician, tasked with ensuring t [...]

    • Това е от онези книги, които ми чупят костите една по една, а после ги събират и ме замерят с тях.За никого не е тайна, че книгите за Патрулите са ми страст, а Лукяненко пък беше свързващото звено между мен и една доста голяма вселена от руско фентъзи. Кой знае защо обаче имах н [...]

      I have a real soft spot for these, going back probably a decade or something. In and of itself its really pretty rote urban fantasy, about a heroic, tortured young man working as a sort of supernatural police in Moscow, but somehow it just kind of hangs together for me. There’s some silly bits in here – I have despised the transcription of song lyrics since the Hobbit – but underlying it is some fairly substantive ethical contemplation, as well as a number of surprising narrative choices w [...]

    • This is one incredibly frustrating book. It is well written, the world-building is superb, and the freaking Tiger has humour. I was seriously not sure whether I could give the book the 4 star rating, until the very last pages. Until the Tiger has shown humour.The book draws you in. It's fun to read and you are both relieved and sad when it's over (I kind of hope he writes more in the world, there are enough loose ends, but the story is also closed enough to live on its own). And there are moment [...]

    • [There are no spoilers in the following review. However, there is a long description of the sentiments that the ending left me with that could potentially be regarded as a spoiler.]I had read quite a few negative comments about this book, this one year since its publication in English and till I finally purchased and read it myself. I was certain that these people with the negative comments were wrong. I was certain that I would hugely enjoy the book, more than these other people who apparently [...]

      I got the book yesterday as a gift.Fr me it was a huge surprise that there was something new published since the last book was called "LAST ___". Anyhow, I liked the book very much.We are again meeting with the ever-lasting step in of the author. He obviously learned some new things which he wanted to share from the mouth of Anton and he does.The book is engaging, the character are likable and diverse, the story is in very quick pace and there are a few things that are interesting to read. It is [...]

    • Review to come*Advanced review copy received from Random House through Nz Booklovers

    • Slightly disappointing after phenomenal Last Watch. The book has no clear goal and it serves more as plot filler to a sixth book in the series, which hasn't been translated yet. It's so frustrating. It's obvious there is plenty of story left, but it seems as the author is saving most of it for the next sequel. Or he's making room for more than one sequel, I don't know. While drinking at the airport, Anton sees a boy screaming at his mother that a plane is going to crash. Since the boy is a secon [...]

    • The most recent addition to the "Watches" series, New Watch, does not disappoint. It is the fifth book in the series, and I couldn't wait for the English translation of the book. I bought the Russian edition of the book from a seller in NYC on eBay. Fortunately, I have no problem reading Russian. (For those of you eager to read it in English, the translation is rumored to be available in spring 2013.) I think I read this book faster than any of the other four. As with the previous books, New Wat [...]

    • Прочитал Ночной и Дневной Дозоры, сумеречный не впечатлил. Но Новый Дозор меня потряс!Давно не встречал книг, от которых настолько тяжело оторваться. Начал читать утром, еще на работе, в свободные моменты времени. Успел в итоге прочитать 20%, но когда пришел домой, понял, что о [...]

    • One could not believe my excitement this year - another Night Watch book! - But I thought, I mean, the last one was called LAST watch right?Anyway I love Sergei L's books so was really looking forward to reading this beast. And what can I say? Present was the almost irreverent prose, the grit-ridden metaphors and the odd twists that characterize books in this series.I guess I was disappointed in the end though, it seems that Sergei wants to keep this series going, but is also struggling to outdo [...]

    • Kapitel 7, letzte Seite"Wir sollten alle öfter Kinderbücher lesen."

    • I'm getting slightly uncomfortable with the throw away sexist lines through out the series and there was far too much philosophy about various society's in the world but apart from this there is something about this authors writing which keeps me coming back for more of this world and it was also I find it funny what a Russian author thought of British traits in this novel

    • Sergei just leaves me speechless every time!I love how every book has a good ending , it all ties up together very nicely and somehow some questions find even better answers in next installments. I can't wait to see what i find out in the last sequel! I do hope we will see more of Arina , i don't think a sarcophagus can stop her lol.

    • In the world of the Night Watch series, there are many kinds of supernatural power. But it turns out that some Others are more rare and dangerous than others.And in the fifth urban fantasy by Sergei Lukyanenko, Anton is confronted by the realities of prophecy and precognition which may turn out to be more trouble than they're worth. Those who have read the other Watch novels know what to expect: "New Watch" has the same robust, implacable magic and complex world as the preceding novels, as well [...]

      Discovering that there was a fifth installment of the Night Watch series came as a surprise to me; I took the title of the fourth book (the Last Watch) at face value.New Watch is a mixed bag for longtime fans of the series. It has some excellent high points. For me, there's a spell that was first mentioned in "Twilight Watch" that I've been hoping would someday become part of the plot. It finally gets cast in this book and even though its effect only lasts for a few pages, it's the kind of thing [...]

    • Когда читаешь не первую книгу писателя, то невольно сравниваешь новое произведение с предыдущими, тем более, если это произведение является пятой книгой в серии. Например, читая 'Черновик' и 'Чистовик', меня не покидало ощущение, что Лукьяненко торопился и не вкладывался в э [...]

    • azcheta/indexp?optiАнтон Городецки се завръща. Помъдрял? Може би. Но доколко може да се постави знак за равенство между възрастта, мъдростта и опита? Определено има разлика между Городецки, преследващ вампири-нарушители в „Нощен патрул“ и новият Городецки, който дори не си помисля [...]

    • Briefly, the growth of Anton continues in fascinating ways. Touching on previous books, we also find out some of the nature of the Twilight itself. Some of the page-long observations of Russia are interesting in an additional context, thanks to to the author's outspoken political views, but they still work well in the story.Mechanically, this is a three-part story, same as previous books. Technically, Anton's timeline is catching up with the modern day, and his random-play disc player has moved [...]

    • Took me forever to start this. I loved books one and two (and the movie directed by Timur Bekmambetov, based -- loosely -- on this series), but 3 and 4 seemed to drift. And bloat. But this one gets back to the voice and tone of the first book, in the best way. Anton Gorodetsky leads us through it, as a strong first person narrator. If you've read the Jim Butcher "Dresden Files" you'd think (or at least I do) that it would be a lot of fun for Gorodetsky to meet Harry Dresden. All hell (literally) [...]

    • First off, I read the English edition of this novel, titled "The New Watch". I had to order it from amazon, because there is no US release date announced.I liked this well enough, but I think the line-graph of new ideas in this universe is flattening out. We know what magic is, we know what is at all levels of the twilight It's as if Lukyanenko is struggling to find more "big" mysteries, and then tie them in to little bits of the previous novels to make it feel like they were foreshadowed all al [...]

    • I naively thought that Last Watch would be the last Watch book, but I guess I was wrong! I felt The New Watch was a stronger offering than Last Watch, although somewhere in the middle of the book the translation seemed to go off a little, and it's still not as strong a book as the two first in the series, however, even a slightly weaker Lukyanenko offering is still a lot more interesting than most "western" UF. I find it quite interesting that the Watch books tend to center around philosophical [...]

    • За что я люблю дозоры? За то, что в них происходят фантастичные, но вполне представляемые в уме вещи. Удивительная способность автора совмещать людской быт с тайным миром дозоров не оставляет читателя равнодушным. Читая книги этой серии, невольно становишься частью происх [...]

      Удоволствието да се завърнеш към тази поредица, към този автор, героите му, въображението, прекрасната история и всичко останало е сравнимо с това да засечеш случайно бивше гадже на улицата, между вас да припламне искрица от предишния огън и в името на доброто старо време д [...]

    • Líbilo se mi to. Po některých recenzích jsem si nebyla jistá, jak mi to sedne, ale vážně jsem se ráda vrátila do světa Hlídek. :) Kniha spíše teoretizuje, autor se často zamýšlí, vrací se k věcem, které známe, a vysvětluje je podrobněji. Což je strašně fajn. Přidal do příběhu nové náměty, jeho svět jde stále dál, vyvíjí se je to prostě moje láska. :)

      Despite the vampires, witches, magicians, and supernatural goings on, it is a story of human sentiment and conviction. This one had a more humorous style than the others in the series, which made for an interesting and enjoyable read.

    • excellent book ! but, the ending i would really have loved a definitive ending; some small things were left hanging in the air, but in the other hand, that is sometimes the best way of the books

    • Надоели уже эти дозоры
