The Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko

The Night Watch Sergei Lukyanenko. Arrow Books Ltd Besides ordinary citizens, there are “others” living in this world. They have the outward appearance of ordinary people but they are gifted with supernatural powers. The “others” are divided into “dark” (bad) and “white” (good). The main character in the series, Anton Gorodetsky, is a white magician working in the the "night watch", a white special service charged with ensuring the dark forces do not work their mischief at night. A former psychiatrist, Sergei Lukyanenko (born 1968) is the most popular and best-selling author among contemporary Russian science fiction writers; he is also one of the most popular bloggers in the Russianlanguage internet.
