Book Description

A fast-paced and funny entry in the "Kitty" Katt series from the author of Touched by an Alien, one of Booklist's top ten science fiction/fantasy novels of the year...

Being newlyweds and new parents is challenging enough. But Jeff and Kitty Martini are also giving up their roles as super-being exterminators and Commanders in Centaurion Division while mastering the political landscape as the new heads of Centaurion's Diplomatic Corps. Enter a shadowy assassination plot and a new set of anti-alien conspirators, and nothing will ever be the same...




Editorial Reviews

Review

"Another awesome installment in an incredible series." —ALPHA Reader

"Ms. Koch kept the action and humor levels high in this book. It was one of those that the reader doesn't want to put down. I love this series and can't wait for the next installment." —Fresh Fiction

"Alien Diplomacy has everything I love about this series—the jokes, pop culture references, the hot aliens and a clever but still real heroine. I love how Koch gives her characters strength but never makes them seem untouchable. Kitty is definitely a gal I would love to call my friend." —Book Lovers Inc.

"Without a doubt this is one of my favourite series and one that I can't recommend highly enough." —Feeling Fictional

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby on Board! April 3, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Katherine `Kitty' Katt isn't fitting too comfortably into her new role as Mrs. Martini. Ever since Jeff became an ambassador, Kitty has had to swap her favourite band t-shirts for frocks, and learn how to host dignified soirees instead of her much preferred rock-fests. But Kitty is trying - she is attending a `Washington Wife' class and learning the proper way to meet and greet Russian dignitaries without embarrassing Jeff or her fellow countrymen.

As hard as being a perfect little wifey is for Kitty, she and Jeff have both found their feet as parents to little Jamie (affectionately known as Jamie-Kat). Baby Jamie is doted on by the whole of the Centaurion Division, not to mention her friends in the C.I.A. and her powerful royal (and deadly) grandparents.

But all is not well in Washington. The President's Ball looms, and on top of learning how to dance, avoid enraging the Koreans and needing to pick out a killer (but classy) dress, Kitty and Martini are hearing rumours that there's going to be violence at the Ball, against an unknown target.

Assassins are swarming Washington, and already Kitty and Jamie have been caught in the crosshairs . . . but are they the targets?

`Alien Diplomacy' is the fifth book in Gini Koch's explosive space opera `Katherine "Kitty" Katt' series.

Gini Koch's beloved sci-fi series has hit so many high-notes in recent books that fans could be forgiven for thinking that things might calm down in this fifth instalment . . . after all, how could Ms Koch possibly compete with some of the jaw-dropping, pedal-to-the-metal helter-skletering plots of yesteryear? `Alien in the Family' included a wild wedding, while `Alien Proliferation' welcomed the birth of a much-anticipated alien-human bubs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great series but least favorite so far April 5, 2012
By Nikki B
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After everything she's been through, Kitty would love nothing more then a bit of down time. Sadly that just ins't in the cards. She's a new parent, she has a new job and with that job comes a responsibility that she become the face of a nation. No one is who they seem and if Kitty and Jeff have any chance of being successful at their new jobs, they will need to find out who is behind the attacks, what they want, and look fabulous and laid back while doing it. After all, important government figures don't kick ass....much.

Alien Diplomacy is Gini Koch's 5th forray into the world of Kitty Katt's (AKA Kitty Martini) world. Up to this point we have had many steamy scenes, hilarious one liners, tons of shady government conspiracies and way to many hot aliens dressed in Armani. I have rode this train since the beginning and wow what a ride it has been! This is definitely one of my favorite series and I have shouted to anyone that would listen that they needed to check this series out. Simply put, I love this series. Which is why is pains me to type the next paragraph.

I didn't like this one nearly as much as the past books. Kitty has a distinct personality. She's direct. She's an acquired taste. While I appreciated her awesome one liners again in A.D, her constant stream of questions seemed to grate on my nerves quite quickly. It appears that once again Kitty always seems to be the one that pulls that string that has all the ideas neatly falling into place. I wish Martini or Christopher got to unravel something on their own. Even Chuckie seems to always count on Kitty to get the ball rolling. After four books of this I was hoping Koch would change it up a bit and let someone else shine. A.D. is also slower then past books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good to see Kitty Again July 31, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kitty and Jeff have new roles in Alien Diplomacy. They are the ambassadors for Centurion American and while they accept their their new roles neither is very happy. After being the center of all the action they are now in a much more passive job. Someone else is doing his or her old jobs. Kitty is regulated to taking classes like Washington Wife's. A class that is suppose to school her in proper behavior for a Ambassador's wife. Of course she ranks at the bottom of the class. Just when she thinks she will die of boredom a new threat arrives. Word is that there will be an assassination during the Presidents Ball and the AC's are trying to find out who the target is so they can stop it from happening.

It is fun to see Kitty in a support role. I know I liked her much better in this book than I did in the last. While she is always fun her I know it all and I am the only one who comes up with any good ideas attitude in the last book kind of got on my nerves. She still has good ideas but is not rubbing everyone's nose it. For most of the book she is as clueless as everyone else.

I also like Jeff's change of attitude. His jealousy was also stepping on a few of my nerves. That was toned down a lot. What made the jealousy so bad was the fact that there was never any reason for him to be jealous. He is Kitty's one and only.

There are a great group of new characters and some of the side characters for previous books have an expanded role in Alien Diplomacy. I especially liked seeing how Mister Joel Oliver, the little snoop, has a more important part in the story.

The plot is very exciting but does not have as much over the top action as previous books. The pacing was much calmer with everything building to the big climax.
