review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-11-01 07:12
Anton and prophecies
New Watch - Sergei Lukyanenko

First part is about Anton saving a prophet. 

 

Twilight has a being that nickname Tiger has come to kill the prophet so that the prophecy would not happen.

 

The theory goes, and not confirmed is that any prophecy told to human would come true. 

 

The prophet could either be killed before he or she tell anyone.

 

Anton tried to protect the boy. But with all the power of the Night Watch combined, they could not fight against the Twilight. 

So who can fight the Tiger. Anton's daughter Nadya, a Zero Enchantress, with all the power in the world. 

 

But Nadya is a child and she does not know how to fight yet. 

 

The story telling has many levels and a lot of useful, thoughtful details. Like how much is the Night Watch paid?

 

Unlimited account. 

 

Reason? Easy enough for a Higher Other to predict the future to make a profit. 

 

So money spent is only limited by the guilt of the Light Other. 

 

Other details include, could Anton live without using magic? He would get stuck in traffic. 

 

There is a witch who try to manipulate Anton and get to the prophecies. There are one that Anton got from the boy. And another one an old prophet gave him.

 

And if he knows the prophecies, and if he could not convince the Tiger that he would not tell another human, he would be killed by the Tiger.

 

Scary. 

 

Good story. Like it a lot. Looking forward to the next one. 

 

Reading this for Gothic square. My last square for this year Halloween Bingo.

Another supernatural creature is at play. This create is nicknamed Tiger by one of the eye witness. 

 

He reported this to the boss and find out what to do with the boy. 

 

Very interesting read. Readable and it is more like detective police story with spells.

The Sixth Watch, Serei Lukyanenko
The Sixth Watch - Sergei Lukyanenko

This book takes no prisoners in terms of having read previous books in the series - much will be very unclear if you haven't. If you have - well, we're still following Anton Gorodetsky's career. His daughter is a teenager and constantly being watched - but that doesn't prevent an attempt on her life and suddenly the apocalypse is impending yet again, secrets and history must be revealed and a prophecy must be fulfilled, leading to a bitter-sweet and surprisingly affecting ending.

Switching between third and first person in the same narrative always feels weird to me.

Vampires are trying to attract the attention of our hero in a rather brutal manner.
