by Stewart, Sean
In Sean Stewart's Resurrection Man (a New York Times notable book), magic began creeping back into the world shortly after World War II, although no one was quite sure why. In The Night Watch, it's the year 2074, and magic holds as much sway as technology. On the Southside of Edmonton the magic has been tamed by a hard ruler named Winter, whose high-tech soldiers often serve as mercenaries for neighboring communities. But in Vancouver, magic is encroaching on what used to be the Chinatown district and the monsters it brings with it are decimating the remaining humans. When Winter sends 100 of his best soldiers to police the streets of Chinatown, the two cities are forced into an uneasy relationship of cooperation. When the Southside's heir apparent, Emily Thompson, flees her grandfather Winter's forceful rule, it puts the two sides at odds, and only the death of a young girl may save the day.
