What a different and unique take on the world of the night!
I watched this film many years ago and was not too impressed overall, but was still intrigued by the obviously very different way of telling a story and the unique world-building!
And now, I finally got around to reading the book and I was not disappointed! I love how we're dropped straight into the action of the book and learn about Moscow's supernatural world while watching the events unfold instead of being told...
And unlike most fantasy books, it magnificent how Lukyanenko manages to make all his characters appealing despite the obvious morale issues in the way the different Watches act. And not "appealing" in the "I like him"-sense, but as rounded and several-dimensional people who each have a story to tell..
I very much look forward to reading the next stories of the Watch!
