Editorial Reviews

Review

"Aliens, danger, and romance make this a fast-paced, wittily written sf romantic comedy." —Library Journal

"As charming and quirky as ever.... Equal parts tongue-in-cheek humor, romance, sci-fi and action adventure, this rare treat is filled with quick wit, although make no mistake, it is the wedding with all the trimmings that takes center stage in this wild ride." —Monsters and Critics

"Even though Alien in the Family may seem like a straight up comedy, there’s more here than meets the eye. Gini Koch makes sure to get a message across about acceptance in all forms, whether it’s someone religion, gender or sexual preference." —Book Fetish

"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.

I have been eagerly anticipating ALIEN IN THE FAMILY and catch up with Kitty Katt, Jeff Martini, and their band of merry Aliens from Alpha Centauri. I was so reluctant to start this series but have since loved just about every minute. This series is filled with an awesome heroine, and studly hero, wacky aliens, pop culture references, action, adventure, and twisting and intersecting plotlines.

Months have passed since "Operation Drug Addict" and Kitty has been busy planning her wedding. Both Kitty and Jeff want everything to be perfect and are feeling the pressure of being the "poster children" for inter-species marriage and haven't really gotten far in the actually planning. Oh, and they still have had to save the world from superbeings, too. Now that the wedding is six weeks away, it looks like a few more people are coming to the wedding than expected: like Amazonian assassins, spies, alien beasties, shape-shifters, and representatives from the Planetary Council, including members from the ruling family from Martini's home world. Why would so many be concerned about this wedding? Martini's royalty and the reigning King has his own idea about how this wedding should proceed.

Although I was eager to get my hands on this book, I had a hard time getting into it initially. I kept pushing forward and was SO glad I did because I absolutely loved it. This one was a bit different than I expected because the wedding really does take a life of its own and dominates the storyline and page time. If you don't like reading about all the wedding details and mushy wedding day romance, this might be a miss for you.

1. Kitty--Still love the girl! She's still so much the same, but is growing.

I have to respectfully disagree with all the 5 and 4 stars review for this book. Before I get flogged for it, let me say that I enjoyed the first book, and liked the second book very much. I just can't enjoy this third book because I have 2 big problems with it:

1)Kitty - everyone love her, and she can do no wrong. All the men are in love with her, and I mean, all the men. They go on and on and on how sexy she is, her breasts, her body, her hair, etc, etc, and gag. She solved inter-galactic problems in 2 chapters, and the rest of the book is all about how great Kitty is. All the women adore her, and I mean, every single one.
2)Jeff - he was a jealous type starting in book one. Ok, understandable since they're just beginning the relationship. But his jealousy has gotten to the point where everyone must bend over backwards to assure him that they have no intention taking Kitty away from him. It gotten to the point where I thought he's really not all that stable and really need a good therapist to smack him in the head.

So, if you like the first and second book like I did and want to read this one, borrow from the library. It'll save you the aggravation.

Alien in the Family is the third book in the Alien series by Gini Koch. While you do not have to read the books in order, I highly recommend that you do.
Ms. Koch has created a complex world of characters deep with history and backgrounds, and not reading the two previous books will diminish your overall experience of Alien in the Family. You will not appreciate the little things the characters bring to this story without knowing their history and motivation behind them. With that being said, this book can still be read as a standalone and enjoyed immensely.

Consider yourself warned: In order to review this book some spoilers will occur in regards to the previous two books.

Commanders Katherine "Kitty" Katt and Jeff Martini spent the last six months happy and content. Well, as content and happy as one can be while saving the world from fugly parasitic monsters bent on destroying mankind. You see, Kitty and Jeff are on the Alpha team for the Centaurion Division, a super-secret organization that stands between the earth and the evil nasties the universe keeps throwing at them. Killing fuglies and saving the world - it is just routine.

You might wonder what Kitty's qualifications are? She wields her purse and contents with the precision of a neurosurgeon. She seems to be a homing beacon for all things evil, and she can do no wrong for a super-consciousness inhabiting the body of a friend, not to mention her irresistible appeal to all things male - this one does boggle her mind a bit. She claims Chuckie, her child hood best friend, is a conspiracy theorist; but Kitty has him beat. Now for Jeff's qualifications, well he is an alien, super sexy, super strong, super manly, super sensitive (he is an empath after all), super jealous and super in love with Kitty.

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and was eager to read this one. I just knew I was going to love it so I kind of let it sit on the shelf longer than I normally would just so I would have something great to read when I hit a slump. And yes, I did really like "Alien in The Family" but I didn't like it as much as the first two books, and I am not sure that it got me out of my reading slump.

In this book, Kitty and Martini are gearing up for their wedding. Both of their families are going to Vegas for all the pre-wedding meeting and fun times. Of course things aren't going to work out smoothly. The couple learns early on in the book that a team of aliens is coming from Alpha Four (Martini's home planet) and various other planets in the Alpha Four solar system. The Centurion team believes that they are coming to visit to test Kitty's worthiness as Martini's mate. After all he is in line for the throne on his home planet.

The book had a lot of really great things about it. I love James Reader, Kitty's dear best friend. The love between the two of them is breathtaking and I love their (so non sexual) chemistry. Plus there is always a nice dose of humor to be had when Reader is in a scene. I adored meeting both Kitty and Martini's insane families and seeing them mingle was a hoot. I also love the fact that this was a wedding story. So often in series, readers never see any progression in relationships. I like that Kitty's romance has moved along at a nice, brisk pace in the course of three books. The book had an addition of some creatures called Poofs that absolutely stole every page they were on. In fact I ended up completely enchanted by everything that had anything to do with the wedding or wedding preparations.
