Twilight Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko

I never thought that I would enjoy books with werewolves, magicians, and witches. Nonetheless, this is the third book in a series by the gifted author Sergei Lukyaneko. Twilight Watch follows the Russian magical reality books Night Watch and Day Watch. Again we return to Anton's mind and Anton's relationships with those around him. Focusing on interactions with the mysterious Inquisitors, this book takes Anton further along the path to understanding that there is only a little difference between Light and Dark. Twilight Watch is divided into three sections. In the final section, we find that a powerful vampire and member of the Inquisition has been murdered. We also find that a book thought to be the stuff of legends, that allows Others to turn humans into Others themselves, has been stolen from the house of the witch Arina. Anton, with the help of the vampire Kostya and the Inquisitor Edgar, has to try to find the culprit and the book. I will say no more other than this is a really great series that I highly recommend.
