The unthinkable has happened. Sigrid Novak, the most dangerous and wanted person in the history of the Federation of Corporate Enterprises, has been captured. For the women of New Alcyone - women just like her, genetically reengineered and trained since childhood to be the most effective killers in the galaxy - this is a staggering loss. For the Independents, the rebels who captured her, this is a boon beyond measure.
If they can figure out how to control her.
Now, six years have passed since the events of Bellatrix, and for six years Sigrid Novak has been gone, vanished, with no sign, no word, and no trace. But all has not been quiet within the Federation. The Council for Trade and Finance has been murdered, assassinated, and the death toll among the Federation's ruling elite continues to rise.
With every corporate enclave that falls, the legend grows. They call her the Night Witch. A champion to some, a nightmare for others. Wherever she goes, death is soon to follow.
Then, in an abandoned CTF research facility - and after so many years lost - a woman awakens. Her name is Sigrid Novak. And she is very, very angry.

I liked Codename: Night Witch more than the audiobook version of Fahrenheit 451 that I borrowed from my local library.
The things that I liked best about the story were the new characters (Jaffer, Marta, and Colonel Bendari among others), and the great dialogue and action.
My favorite character performed by Kristin James was Lady Hitomi.
The moment in the book that particularly moved me was near the end when Jaffer saved Sigrid's life. This moment said a lot about Jaffer; especially how brave he was.
Kristin James did an excellent job reading the book, including the action, the dialogue (especially the accents of the different characters) and narrating the action scenes. It was easy to visualize what was happening in the book while listening to Kristin James's narration. I highly recommend this! Five stars.
I have MS and LD and make spelling and grammar mistakes, please forgive the handicap.
Part Three of a exciting sci-fi story with a strong lesbian lead. Can't wait until part four comes out.
There was actual promise for real development of the setting and the hero like never before in this series. She begins with no resources but her own wits and skills, needing to rebuild her support base alone in an unfamiliar planet.
Then she gets almost all of her old assets back instantaneously and she's back in a comfortable position to deal with a clever psychological story that has a surprisingly well crafted climax considering how hamfisted and unbelievable the love story is.
I know the hero and her girlfriend are in love because they say it over and over, but they behave like they are in lust instead. They neither trust nor support each other they way lovers do, choosing to ogle and grope each other like people treating sex as an indiscretions instead of a celebration. The most baffling development of the relationship is when Suko claims they aren't partners because they don't work together in the same business...which they do.
