Editorial Reviews

Review

"Kitty and Jeff Martini and their ever-expanding gang of humans and aliens return for another highly entertaining dose of dangerous and wildly offbeat adventures. Koch continues to be the go-to author for anyone wanting madcap futuristic adventure heavily laced with deadly danger and laugh-out-loud fun."—RT Book Reviews
 
"The variously dark and cheerful seventh installment of Koch’s Alien series is a crowd-pleaser…. The best hallmarks of the series—frequent banter, head-first dives into action, tangled webs, and Kitty’s snark—are in full force again.”—Publisher’s Weekly
 
"Rollicking, sexy fun—science fiction hasn't been this much of a  blast since ... well, never.  Grab on with both hands and enjoy the wild, lusty ride."—Robert J Sawyer
 
"This delightful romp has many interesting twists and turns as it glances at racism, politics, and religion en route. It will have fanciers of cinematic sf parodies referencing Men in Black, Ghost Busters, and X-Men. Meanwhile, readers who like the smart sf silliness of Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy novels, Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan Saga, Pat Murphy’s There and Back Again, and A. Lee Martinez’s The Automatic Detective will find it distinctively different, for Koch’s humor is more in the vein of MaryJanice Davidson in her Undead series, but darned amusing, all the same."—Booklist
 
"It's one hot, fast-paced, crazy romp, with plenty of humorous banter to go with the blood spatter and discussions of wedding dresses."—Locus

About the Author

Gini Koch lives in the American Southwest, works her butt off (sadly, not literally) by day, and writes by night with the rest of the beautiful people. Touched by an Alien, the first in her Alien/Katherine “Kitty” Katt Series, received a starred review from Booklist and was named one of Booklist’s Top Ten adult science fiction and fantasy novels of 2010. Alien Tango released December 7, 2010, with Alien in the Family releasing April 5, 2011, and Alien Proliferation in Winter 2011. Gini started writing as an excuse to stay up late playing on the computer while listening to rock music and mooning over pictures of hunky men. She's thrilled all that drooling has finally paid off. She can be found at ginikoch.com.

Customer Reviews

I can't wait to see what happens in the next book!
Deanna Haddrill
I love that just as soon as you think you what direction the story will take, you are thrown loop after loop and nothing ever turns out the way you think it will.
Colette
The plots, the suspense, the relationships between the characters, and the world-building - all are imaginative and fun.
Elizabeth Chamberlin

**I received this book for free from Penguin/DAW in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.**

*My Thoughts*

Gini Koch has created a monster with the Katherine "Kitty" Katt series that continues to grow and we are only on book # 9! There are literally hundreds of characters involved in this story, with our intrepid heroine Kitty Katt-Martini leading the way for the good guys against the evil villains led by the mysterious Mastermind who has his Apprentices, some horrible politicians, Death Dealers, lobbyists, Anti-Alien groups like Club-51 and the Church of Intolerance, and those who are just scared of the unknown, trying hard to prevent her husband Jeff from becoming the next Vice-President of the United States.

Over the past 4 and a half years, Kitty has gone from being a marketing director, to a thorn in the sides of those who terrorize innocent people. She's gone from not knowing that aliens really exist, to marrying a drop-dead gorgeous Alien in Jeff Martini, and having a daughter with him.

She's killed several MEGA-Aliens with hair spray, and an assortment of useful weapons, including a flamethrower, and has become the Bad Guys Number One target to be eliminated at all costs! As Alien Collective opens, it has been 6 months since the events of Alien Research and Kitty is still the Ambassador for the American Centaurions who have given their lives in order to protect the world from evil both on and off this planet. Kitty and her crew are still searching for the Hacker known as Chernobog who nearly brought the group to their knees, while at the same time, trying to local Ronald Yates illegitimate offspring.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Aurian on May 6, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
As usual, I stayed up way too late on a Sunday night to finish this book. There is always a moment in these books, that you are pulled into the story and just have to know what happens next, how they will figure it all out and how they will all survive. Of course, that is not always the case; sometimes they do lose close friends and allies.

It is still very hard to write a coherent review about these books. So many things happen, so many characters, so many plots and I still do not want to spoil anything important for other readers.

I love Kitty as a heroine, she is truly kick ass, she takes charge, she will do whatever it takes to keep her friends and loved ones safe. She has an amazing taste in music, and I love how she uses it to pump herself up for action. Kitty is very smart, even surrounded by exceptionally smart and brainy people, she is the one who figures all the plots out and knows how to thwart them. To all their enemies, she is the main target to take out.
Her husband Jeff is amazingly good looking and extremely good in bed (or the shower, or the elevator) and they are very much in love. He wants to keep her safe and protected but of course Kitty will not hold back when she is needed.

I so felt for Charles, after what happened in the last book. His role in this one is minor, and I hope to see more of him in the next one. Like the Pontifax and Reader, they need more page time as I love those characters.

Again, as usual, this book is chock full of action and confusion, multiple plots are running through. New friends are made, traitors are found but Kitty really stars in this book. She is very busy, and whenever Jeff is doing his political stuff, Mister White is her trusted sidekick. And so are Mister Joel Oliver, Buchanan and her two uncles.

Kitty and the girls have gone "Washington Wild"...and get arrested. Quite an opener, that. Yeah, I mean handcuffs and the paddy wagon. Nobody tell Jeff and the rest of the significant others, okay?

"Representative Martini, Bruce Jenkins, Washington Post here with CNN. Do you have any comment on the fact that your wife just admitted that Centaurion Division was responsible for all the bombings yesterday?" - Reporter
* * * * * * * * * * *

Welcome to an extreme Ronaldo Yates family reunion, and Kitty didn't know she was the guest of honor. Dogging her heels are her favorite assassins and Prince, because - Who else to keep on tap when bio-weapons become "routine," and Jeff, a member of the A-C alien race, accepts the vice-presidential nomination?

To thoroughly complicate the political situation in this ninth installment of the Katherine "Kitty" Katt books, there's a new super-consciousness in town, and "he" has a bone to pick with ACE, the physical and psychological burier protecting Earth from most of what's out there in the big bad universe. You might even label Sandy "judgmental." The truth is, if ACE is found guilty of failing certain galactic standards of penguin-keeping, he'll be removed from Earth. And, because Sandy is a big deal on the alien scale of powerful, he can sense the A-C Elves too. Not good. So not good. Because, you see, nobody threatens Kitty's friends.

* * * * * * * * * * *
"You're lying. With ACE gone you'll lose superconsciousness scrutiny of this planet. At least, so you think. But I think they'll just send someone else, someone who won't actually care about us like ACE does."
"Immortality is a lot of dullness interspersed with extreme excitement. This is an extreme excitement moment.
