Yenenko who is at his best a very capable writerThe middle story I found to be relatively weak because the central character literally is not a character Lukyenenko thereby defeating his wn great strength f making his protagonists beleivable The reasons behind this weird situation are explained but still the story is not what it perhaps could have beenThe final story sits perhaps between the ther two in uality this time because I felt that dragging Germanic and Christian mythology to the forefront The Something of matters was a mistake It somehow distracted from Lukyenenko swn imaginative creationsOver all this volume is weaker than the first and it is because it is disjointed The changes f perspective between characters leave you without the unifying influence that the use f Anton s first person view in all three parts f The Night Watch provided 2014 The reasons why I will never read another ne A Killing Tide of Lukyanenko s books are at the bottomf this review 2013 Unless you happen to be a chessmaster in the neverending chess game Shivers: four in one: The Enchanted Attic/A Ghastly Shade of Green/The Locked Room - The Awful Apple Orchard of life you are nothing but a pawn to be sacrificed when the strategy demands it The game is eternalnly the time the figures spend L'Oracle de votre subconscient : I-Ching, Le Livre des transformations on the checkered board is finite It really doesn t matter which side in the war you belong to because each will sacrifice its expendable pawns in the pursuitf victory And no pawn is ever safe because regardless Weirdos of the Universe, Unite! of your rank among the minions you are still nothing than a piece to be moved and manipulated And really allur aspirations and speeches are meaningless We are marionettes Nothing than marionettes Trying to become a puppet master is a hopeless feat since you need special abilities like Geser s Les Naufrags d'Ythaq T03 : Le soupir des toiles or Zavulon s and those abilities are exceedingly rare And all the seats at the chessboards are already taken No chessmaster will allow his place to be taken by a chess piece even if it s a chess kingr a ueen From the semi drunk in the Russian fashion conversation between the enemies Edgar the Dark One and Anton the Light One Both are The Royal Joust of course pawnsn the chessboard American Maharajah of life Ultimately for the pawns the little people with little power involved in the big kids games led by those select few who hold the reinsf power the side that they take in the war really does not make that much f a difference The goals and strategies are set by the leaders and the rest are just trying to live their lives to survive to do well in life they work and love and have friends This is what Lukyanenko focuses n in The Day Watch the seuel to Night Watch now showing us f the happenings n the Squeamish About Sushi: And other Food Adventures in Japan other sidef the virtual barricades in the neverending war between the non ironically named the Light Ones and the Dark Ones But for the Others people are a source f existence Their roots and food For the Light Ones and the Dark Ones alike regardless f what the "Light Ones blab about n every corner They also take their energy from people s "Ones blab about n every corner They also

Cthulhu open to seeing that to reconsidering their ingrained deeply prejudiced viewsf traditional enemies But sometimes they cannot help but see how pointless the distinctions between them can be and the failure to do so can lead to tragedy And Anton thought yet another time that the Dark Ones in their seeming simplicity are sometimes humane than the fighters for the grand ideals the Light Ones The leaders Infamy of both sides in this eternal standstillf the Dark Zavulon and the Light Geser would very much love to upset the tenuous balance and bring the long awaited victory to their side Little will stop them and the methods they choose are eerily similar despite the presumed differences in etiology the age tested political strategies rooted in intrigues and manipulations and deceit and the willingness to move the pawns General P.T.G.
