Lukyanenko, Sergei -- Night Watch

Urban fantasy from Moscow, where the natural evolution of light-vs-dark is the business-as-usual milieu of barely-distinguishable corrupt government and crime mob. Light magicians and sorcerers are bogged down in a permanent standoff-and-treaty with Dark vampires and witches -- with countless deals, alliances, rivalries, and friendships running across the line, at every level from the petty to the top. Charming and tricksy. Also made a great movie.
