Codename: Night Witch (The Girls From Alcyone)

Cary Caffrey’s Codename: Night Witch, published 2015, 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 several years later, years during which Sigrid has had her memories suppressed and manipulated, and she has been used by the Independents to wreak havoc, bringing both freedom and chaos to humanity’s system of corporate slavery. And then one day her original memories return, and she must escape and piece together her fractured past.

This is an addictive and satisfying read, and literally Earth-bound in contrast to the previous books. My complaints this time round are few and inconsequential. Mainly I’m baffled by the things that Sigrid can’t do, given the things that she can do.
