As book 8 in the long running series, Gini Koch ran me through the gamut of emotions as she added to the Kitty Katt-Martini story. I laughed, I cried, I got pissed off, and mourned. Putting the story down was not an option. The fast-paced action & snappy humor helped weave a strong story. While I've enjoyed all the books in the series, I have to say this one ranks #1 for me.
And later, when they want to leave the restaurant, they get a visit from the Cabal of Evil, wanting to make deal with Kitty. Of course Kitty is not interested in it at all, her best friend Amy is still trying to get control over her father’s company, and the Board is preventing that from happening.
Back home at the Embassy, there is more bad news waiting for Kitty. The FBI has finally come up with their own version of an Alien Division, just like Chucky is heading for the CIA. And the new director is testing them, wanting to start a congressional inquiry into the happenings at Gaultier Enterprises and Titan Security. Of course the A-C’s don’t want that to happen, too many secrets might come to light, like them killing some of the really evil bad guys. Then Kitty gets a phone call from Walter, who usually runs security at the Embassy, that he and all the other security personnel who went for training to Dulce, are in big trouble. Before Kitty can react to that, the unthinkable happens, and they are hacked. Their complete database is stolen, and all their data is wiped out. Their own resident hackers are powerless to counter that. There is only one hacker in the world who could have done that, and that is Chernobog the Ultimate. Most think he is only a rumor, but one of them knows it for a fact.Read more ›
Now how to review this book? Omg, you can't review a Koch book properly. I can't begin to explain all the things going on, it has to be experienced. You know what, I just realized what an awesome tv-series this would be..ok back to the point now.
Stuff is going down! Evil guys are back. Plans are made. Crazy religious nuts are protesting. ACE is still missing. There will be struggles.
This book felt darker than the rest, I will not tell you why, but it was.
Non-stop action and good things at the end that made me want to read more at once. Oh oh! I almost forgot about a certain revelation, I did not see that coming!
See, the review makes no sense. Just go and read this series!
My only complaint would be the constant playlist of songs throughout the book. I know that Kitty has always been a huge music fan and there has always been music incorporated into the books. However, I just felt like it was kinda overkill in this one.
Other than that, can't wait for the next installment!
The biggest negative of the book was excessive Kitty orations - often to the "preachy" level. This also appeared to be filler, but was a distraction either way. By the 8th book, Gini's soapbox issues - and all of us have some of those - is well established, so the extensive explanations were unnecessary to series readers (a succinct explanation could have been provided once for each issue as a concession to new readers without being a distraction to returning readers). At one point, I actually found myself thinking "yeah, yeah, yeah; here we go again", before skipping that part to continue with the actual story. Most of us read the series for relaxation and entertainment, rather than issues.
There was almost a grim tone to this book. The apparent killing of some 2nd level characters (who have played significant roles in most of the previous 7 books) was a depressing turn, especially since it seemed to be for the primary purpose of added drama. It is also unsetting as it may indicate a significant turn in the storyline for some 1st level characters. A serious, and somewhat depressing, drama approach has not been a characteristic of the series, which is why I read it.Read more ›
