Day Watch (Watch #2) by Sergei LukyanenkoThe second in a blockbuster series of novels from Russias most popular science fiction author, Day Watch brings us back into the hyperimaginative world of Sergei Lukyanenko and continues the dramatic battle between good and evil, light and dark, day and night.
Set in a modern-day Moscow, the epic saga chronicles the eternal war of the Others, an ancient race of humans with supernatural powers who must swear allegiance to either the Dark or the Light. The agents of Dark - The Day Watch - keep an eye during the day, while the agents of Light keep watch over the night. For a thousand years a treaty between the two sides has maintained an uneasy balance, but when a very potent artifact is stolen from the inquisition - an impartial group of Others who keep watch over all - the consequences are dire for both sides.
Day Watch introduces the perspective of the Dark Ones, as it is told in part by a beautiful but troubled young witch. When she falls in love with a handsome young Light One, the balance is threatened and a death must be avenged. Replete with the thrilling action and intricate plotting of the first tale, Day Watch is fuelled by cunning, cruelty, violence, and magic. It is a fast-paced, darkly humorous, haunting world that will take root in the shadows of your mind and live there forever.

The story revolves around a confrontation between two opposing supernatural groups known as "Others" : the Night Watch, an organisation that seeks to improve the world—but is not totally perfect and selfless either—and the Day Watch, which champions a Nietzschean "every man for himself" philosophy and attitude, and fights any Night Watch attempt to limit personal freedom. In the story's worldline there exists a magical realm beneath the surface of all things—referred to as the Twilight or Gloom in other translations. The action in the novel centers around a group of people referred to as the Others—human beings who tapped into the Twilight and gained supernormal abilities.
