Svetlana is sufficiently reduced in power, so that she and Lukynaenko are now theoretically able to live as equals, as Zabulon promised.

It is so great to read such deep writing, having numerous, seemingly unrelated events come together to form a single tapestry in the end.
The Day Watch : Sergei Lukyanenko :
Once in Moscow and still acting on instinct, he registers his presence as a Dark Other with the Day Watch and proceeds to stumble into a series of seemingly accidental encounters with the Night Watch, often resulting in a Night Watch member dying.

And yet, contrary to what you’d expect, they do not wstch much. Can’t wait to pick up the Twilightwatch! In time, he learns he’s one of the Others and much more. The last part was a mostly dry, russian, introspective, courtroom slog that seriously dinged my enjoyment. Refresh and try again.
