Codename: Night Witch (The Girls from Alcyone #3)

Sigrid had been trained since childhood for moments exactly like this. She was made to survive. But all her training, all the shouted words of her instructors, abandoned her. She couldn't focus on anything, she couldn't concentrate, and it was going to get her killed. She didn't even see the gully until she tripped and fell into it, ro

I wasn't really happy with The Machines of Bellatrix and that cliffhanger pissed me off so badly, I had doubts I would read Codename: Night Witch (which I was sure was called White Princess when it was announced).

At the same time, I bought it the second I saw it was released. And really hesitant to start with.

Codename: Night Witch continues in much the same vein as its predecessor. It's a never-ending string of ultra-violence (I think that by page 3, the death toll was already above 1500), with

This continues the very enjoyable space opera that started with The Girls From Alcyone and continued with The Machines of Bellatrix. Arguably, Codename: Night Witch, is the conclusion of a trilogy, with many threads wrapped up and only a hint at further episodes to come. If you like kick-ass girls, cybernetic warriors and space opera, blended with lesbian romance, then you should love The Girls From Alcyone.

Book 2 ended on a cruel cliffhanger with Sigrid captured by the enemy. Book 3 picks up se

The third chapter in the feminist action series that is the "Girls from Alcyone" set of books. It's definitely more promising than the others, but in strange ways it fails to deliver completely.

The story remains good and readable, with the exception of some confusing fight/battle scenes. I am unsure I really understood what the author really meant. There are some sequences that are fuzzy, but other than that I think the story is quite good.

About the "feminist" side of things, all I can say is th

Caffrey hits another home run with the third book in his series. He takes us on one hell of a roller coaster ride to a satisfying end, and yet sets us up for another blockbuster story. I eagerly await Book 4!

This book: The latest installment, book 3 of the Girls from Alcyone, needed to do a lot after the cliffhanger ending from book 2. It delivers nicely, moving the main characters forward in a stream of non-stop action. If anything, there was too much action, too fast, and while well done, it needed some 'less is more' consideration, especially for Sigrid. Many story lines were brought to a satisfying end point, yet enough left open for future installments.

Book 3: 4/5

The series: Just finished this

Decent book. The entire series is reasonably good. More research on Military tactics and perspective would have been in order, but still a good hard Sci Fi series.
As a whole I love this series, it's far from perfect but it's consistently fun to read. At first I was a little annoyed with Night Witch because it seemed to shuffle its feet a bit. While I enjoyed getting a glimpse at this world's Earth and how the war is effecting things since the end of Machines of Bellatrix, there was a moment midway through that felt unnecessary to the story as a whole. Yes, it served to move the characters around and get them out of their comfort zone but I found myself ...more

Special, well done

I am so happy that CC has not only written 3,so far, excellent stories but, also kept them at a reasonable price. I'm so tired of being, personal opinion here, ripped off by authors who have a greater opinion of their ability than may be justified. I believe in paying for the author's legitimate intellectual property. However, looking at prices some of the greater authors, ( Niven, McCafrey, etc), some are having delusions of grandeur. This was a very good story and suspense wa

Per Tomanek, corporate military Another action packed journey to find answers and save others along the way. Tumbling the balance of power so change, hope and a better chance at life can rise from the rubble. I read the first two books sometime ago and was excited to find the third one. Guess I should check my list so I can review them, too.

Sigrid awakens and discovers that 6 years of her life have been lost from her memory. She finds herself on Earth and defending a group called the Consortium. In the midst of one of her battles, Suko, who has been searching for her the past 6 years, saves her and together they go on to attack Harry Jones.

I've noticed a lot of independent writers grow way beyond their britches after a couple entries in a series. They start off with a great idea, then around book 3 they try and write their magnum opus.

That's not how Codename: Night Witch felt. Definitely my favorite in the series, it's fast paced with many twists and turns.
Wow what a ride. 2 years after the second book, it's finally out and damn codename: Night Witch was worth the wait ! But nothing is really ended, I guess that we will have number four soon. I can't wait.

This is a awesome series - i hope there will be more books :D

I got the audible audiobook narrated by Kristin James, and she did a awesome job.

Love this series. Can't wait for the next one to see what happens next. Please let there be a next one!

Excellent Read

The only thing I would have changed about this story is more sensual scenes between our Heroines. Great Job Cary Caffrey

About time

I love the girls of alcyone. Is a roller coaster of politics, war, and just that dash of lesbian love that is epic. Epic fighting, epic I tell you!!
Miss Chevious
So it went a bit slower than previous books, but as per usual, pulled through like a champ in the end. I'm seriously hoping that there is more in this series in the future!

Wow, who would have believed that that was how it would have turned out. It had me despairing after Sigrid and Suko.

Read and find out
