This book is the fifth book in a series called The Night Watch.
Purely by chance, Anton discovers a young boy who is a prophet, and what the boy has to say could destroy the world as Anton knows it, but only if it is heard. Simple then, wouldn’t you think? If no one hears it, then things will be ok, won’t they? The only problem is that the twilight has plans of it’s own to keep the boy from making his prophecy.
A being has been sent to kill the boy, and there is only one person alive who can stop it, and it’s not Anton. Anton struggles to keep the boy safe, and figure out how to stop what they have dubbed The Tiger, from killing everyone who hears the prophecy before it’s too late.
It’s a richly told story, and the author weaves such an intricate story that you really have to pay attention just to keep up, let alone try and figure things out for yourself like I like to do.
I don’t know if there will be any more books in this series, but I really hope there will be. Mr. Lukyanenko, if you ever read this please write more.
