Day Watch, Audio Edition (1999/2006/2010) Sergei Lukyanenko translated by Andrew Bromfield and narrated by Paul Michael

The second book in the watch series. This is, as the title says, about the day watch.

It’s very strange. I don’t enjoy reading the first story, but I quite like listening to it. The other stories I enjoy reading or listening, but the first story I would much rather listen to. It’s very odd.

“Do you take the sin on yourself?” the seer asked insistently.

“What sin is there in that?” Natasha retorted, her irritation suddenly breaking through. “Every woman’s committed that sin at least once! Perhaps there isn’t anything there anyway!”

The seer pondered, as if she were listening to something. She nodded her head. “There is . . . And I think it’s definitely a daughter.”

“I’ll take it,” said Natasha, still in an irritated voice. “I’ll take all the sins on myself, any you like. Do we have a deal?”

The seer looked at her sternly, disapprovingly. “That’s not right, my daughter . . . About all the sins. Who knows what sins I might hang on you? My own, or somebody else’s . . . then afterward you would have to answer to God.

“We’ll sort it out somehow.”

Darya sighed: “Oh, these young people are so foolish. Do you think He wastes his time rummaging about in people’s sins? Every sin leaves its own trace, and the judgment matches the traces . . . All right, don’t be afraid. I won’t put anybody else’s sins down to you.”

You know what they say? A Siberian isn’t someone who doesn’t feel the cold, he’s someone who’s warmly dressed!”

I do love this series.
