This is the third of the series. At this point I knew all the characters and had my favorite one! Anton an other a character that ran through the trilogy was a very interesting being that I wanted to get a happy ending which he got in this book! The books were full of different beings, vampires, shape shifters witches, magicians etc. The book had three stories in it with the third one completing the journey and the trilogy. It was a very good read and I would recommend to someone who likes stories that are different!
I love fantasy and mild sci-fi books, and own the paperbacks of this series. But with lots of long journeys this year I decided to get these audio books for in the car, to help keep me interested and awake!
My least favourite of the trilogy I think, but still great story, the whole series is great and would recommend. The narration is good, once you get past the odd (to me!) change from narration in an American accent, switching to a Russian(ish) accent when speaking as a character. But then I'm from the UK and it just seemed a little odd to me. Good narration though, and good quality audio.

Like the previous two, this book is split into three separate (although linked) stories. I love this series for several reasons, one of which is the character progression that you get throughout the books of both the dark and light characters, as they learn, grow and develop their beliefs. The story is written beautifully with wonderful imagery, imagination and plot. The narrator is, in my opinion, one of the best I have heard doing both male and female voices and varying accents equally well so that it is like listening to a play with a full cast. There is nothing that I would criticize, I just hope they release the next story on audio-book soon.
"A great listen!"
This is a truely great story and a great third book to set.
See other Night Watch and Day Watch
Just wish 4th book was available.
