Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Night Watch (Ночной Дозор, Nochnoi Dozor) is a book series by Sergey Lukyanenko, a speculative fiction writer internationally acclaimed, especially in the Eastern Bloc. It had two movie adaptations (both movies mixed elements of this book and its sequel) starring Konstantin Khabensky, both of which became the top-grossing Russian movie of all time (Night Watch broke all previous records, was briefly beaten by 9th Company, then Day Watch broke 9th Company's new record). Because of this, the series received much attention internationally and spread Lukyanenko's name and work to the West.Night Watch is set in Moscow in 1998-2007 (book timeline) / circa 2004 (movie timeline). The world is pretty much the gritty ex-Communist concrete-a-thon we know and love, with a major difference. There are Others. Others are non-humans born from humans and have special abilities. Vampires, shapeshifters, wizards, prophets, warlocks... and all others. What distinguishes Others from humans is their innate ability to manipulate "The Twilight", a "mirror world" of magical energy. Others come in two flavors, Light and Dark, and the Light and Dark have been conflicting since the beginning of time. In the 12th century or so, the Others from both sides realized that conflicts between them, due to their vast power and influence over humans, could destroy the world. So they wrote and signed the Treaty, which basically states that each side is allowed to form a Watch to monitor the activities of the other side from becoming overly excessive, in turn monitored by a joint Inquisition. The Treaty has held up well, and all fighting between Light and Dark has since moved into the shadows.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Not to be confused with the 1994 Danish horror film Nightwatch or its 1997 American remake, or the Discworld book titled Night Watch.

The Last Watch written by Sergey Lukyanenko because he wanted to prove that the fame hasn't gone to his head and he could write a book within a year without distractions getting in the way. Wraps up some loose trends from the previous books, (lampshades and homages the movie adaptation a few times and wraps up the events in the closest thing the series can have to the Grand Finale.
