Last Watch (/2010) by Sergei Lukyanenko translated by Andrew Bromfield and narrated by Paul Michael

This is the last book I have read in the Night Watch series, although there is a fifth book, New Watch, which I can pre-order. It looks like it had been released once in the US, but it must have been a very limited release, as I never saw it.

This was the same narrator as the previous three books, and as in the first three, the text was spoken in American English, but dialog was in an appropriate accent. For this book, it finally made sense why the different characters would have such different accents–Anton travels to Scotland, and the Scots have an appropriate Scottish accent.


During Anton’s dialog with Thomas and other Scots, the Russian accent becomes muddled, and often sounds as much Scottish as Russian. Which was mildly disconcerting.

But, despite these flaws, I really enjoyed listening to this series.
