Walking the streets of Moscow, indistinguishable from the rest of its population, are The Others. Possessors of supernatural powers and capable of entering the Twilight, a shadowy world that exists in parallel to our own, each owes allegiance either to The Dark or The Light. In The Day Watch, second book of the Night Watch trilogy, Alice, a young but powerful Dark Other, attends a planning meeting with her comrades in the Day Watch. The team is on a mission to apprehend an uninitiated Other, a practicing Dark witch who has so far eluded the bureaux responsible for finding and initiating unlicensed practitioners of magic. It seems a routine operation. But when they arrive, the Night Watch team has already made the arrest. A fierce battle ensues, during which Alice almost dies. Drained of her powers, she is sent to recuperate at a youth camp near the Black Sea. There she meets Igor; the chemistry between them is instant and irresistible. But then comes a shattering realisation: Igor is a Light Mage. Suddenly Alice remembers him as one of those involved in the battle that left her crippled.

I liked this one a little more than the first in the series - we get to see a bit more of the world and how it works, and it's a very interesting place. Plus this one has several very interesting POV characters, which is a good change from the all-Anton first book (although he is a major character in two thirds of this one, which is fine). Glad to finally be reading this series. ( )

Second book in the series, featuring the ongoing struggle between "the dark" and "the light." Like the first book, it is told in a series of three interwoven stories, but the changing narrative styles are somewhat hard to follow. Much of the book describes the battle between these forces, and the two organizations established to monitor their actions: The Night Watch, which is staffed by Light Magicians (virtuous), and the Day Watch, which is staffed by Dark Magicians (freedom-loving libertarians.) At the center is a treaty, drawn to restrict the use of magic and to license the activities of vampires, werewolves and other creatures. There is a doomed love story, a powerful relic on the loose, and the mysterious agendas of the two leaders of the Watches, while they sacrifice their chess pieces in an attempt to emerge victorious.

Another three stories, following on from the events of The Night Watch, which had resolved matters quite nicely, thank you. (There was a time when this series would have been published as a nanology not a trilogy.) The Nightwatch had a somewhat unsettling habit of switching from the first person perspective of Anton, Nightwatch Agent, to a third person perspective whenever the author felt the need to describe events Anton was not witness to. The first story in the volume switches to a first person perspective of a character encountered briefly a number of times in the previous volume - and she is from the Day Watch. Other first person perspectives are used in the subsequent stories and again third person is used whenever the author feels like it. All this switching around is a little distracting and detracting....
The witch Alisa, protagonist of the first story in the present volume is not a likable character (downright unpleasant, in my view) and I'm confident she is not meant to be. Yet at the denouement I found myself sympathising with her more than a little - that is quite some achievement on the part of Lukyenenko, who is, at his best, a very capable writer.
The middle story I found to be relatively weak, because the central character literally is not a character - Lukyenenko thereby defeating his own great strength of making his protagonists beleivable. The reasons behind this weird situation are explained, but still, the story is not what it perhaps could have been.
The final story sits perhaps between the other two in quality, this time because I felt that dragging Germanic and Christian mythology to the forefront of matters was a mistake. It somehow distracted from Lukyenenko's own imaginative creations.
Over-all this volume is weaker than the first and it is because it is more disjointed. The changes of perspective between characters leave you without the unifying influence that the use of Anton's first person view in all three parts of The Night Watch provided. ( )

Credit where it's due, Day Watch continues with an originality and nuance rare to urban/contemporary fantasy. It's well written, with well developed characters.

Unfortunately the storyline's themselves are... bluntly, depressing. Like Night Watch, Day Watch is divided into three sections each following a different, but related, storyline. The Day Watch are the 'bad guys' of Lukyanenko's world (as much as this grey/grey morality tale has 'bad guys'), so from the start you know that the good guys aren't going to save the day. That's okay. Morally ambiguous stories are a thing and sometimes we like cheering for the bad guys.

But..that's not this book.

If you enjoy stories where there is no winner or where the only victory is a pyrrhic one, you'll find this a powerful and engaging book exploring the reality of good and evil, power, and what happens when the pawns try too make their own moves. If you don't like books where the author gets you engaged to and invested in a protagonist just to kill them off and the only winner is the one who sent them off to die, pass on. ( )

Weer drie mooie verhalen over de Wachten van Moskou. Het boek doet een goede poging om de strijd tussen de Lichte en de Duistere wachten te beschrijven.

Zeer goed geschreven. Kan niet wachten op de volgende delen. ( )

Andrew Bromfield's translation of... Day Watch... showcases Lukyanenko's sardonic sense of humor.
