I really like Russian fiction, their sensibilities are really interesting. This is a Russian take on Urban Fantasy and it rocked my socks! The Others are divided by those who serve the light (Night Watch) and those who serve the dark (day watch), each are striving to create, maintain, or destroy the balance. This balance has been maintained for thousands of years but events are occurring that will play havoc with it and with the fate of humans as well.
