Editorial Reviews

Review

"Campy, hyperactive, implausibly entertaining, there's a lot of fun here, and more fun to come in future installments."—SF Site
 
"Gini Koch mixes up the sometimes staid niche of science fiction romance by adding nonstop humor, blockbuster action, and moments worthy of a soap opera."—Dirty Sexy Books

"When it comes to futuristic fun, Koch has literally written the book(s), as Kitty Katt-Martini’s outlandish adventures are completely giggle-inducing. A wonderful element of this series is how Kitty’s adversaries constantly underestimate her and find themselves in for some very rude awakenings." —RT Book Reviews

"Gini Koch's Kitty Katt series is a great example of the lighter side of science fiction. Told with clever wit and non-stop pacing, this series follows the exploits to the country's top alien exterminators in the American Centaurion Diplomatic Corps. It blends diplomacy, action and sense of humor into a memorable reading experience." —Kirkus Reviews

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 love the zany, crazy things going on.

Gini Koch's latest "Alien" book has me punching sofa cushions in frustration that it will be several months until the next book!!!!
Elizabeth Vrabel
Overall, very few new characters were added to this story and where they were added, it was near the middle to the end of the book.

And we're BACK!!! YAHOO! Yes, folks, Kitty is back in all her glory and Ms. Koch has come back from what I thought was a "meh" book number five and delivered a solid sequel with Alien vs. Alien. Last time around, I got lost in all the extra characters so I didn't quite enjoy the awesome-ness that is Kitty and the gang. This time character additions are reined in, plot twists don't go where you think they will, and carnage is off the hook. All through it, Kitty is forever running her mouth off to most everyone's chagrin, except maybe Martini...

Characters

As most good books in a series do, we start off with a nice little recapping of events from the previous book in the form of a nice "establishing shot" of life for Kitty and Jeff Martini. I'm going to totally cheat here and say that if you want to READ the opening and first chapter of Alien vs. Alien, you can head over to Ms. Koch's website to get a peek. Since I hate spoilers, I don't do much recapping in my reviews. So I leave it to you to decide for yourself. But it IS a great way to test out Ms. Koch's writing (*wink, wink, nudge, nudge*).

As I started reading, I got a little nervous because we started getting into all the characters that lost me in Alien Diplomacy. Honestly, I just kind of let a lot of the bad guy's names wash over me for a bit and it all worked out fine. I mean, it had been like half a year since I read the last book - how can I remember all these big nasties? No worries, it really worked out fine. It was like all the characters were rounded up rodeo-style and everything was tightened up beautifully.

Overall, very few new characters were added to this story and where they were added, it was near the middle to the end of the book.

I wish I could quote my favorite lines, but I think I would end up quoting the entire book instead. ~ Under the Covers

If there is one thing I have taken away from this book it's that I WANT TO BE KITTY!

Gini Koch delivers a stellar installment to the Katherine "Kitty" Katt series. Filled to the brim with action, politics and humor, you've got a story that is ready and waiting for your consumption!

Just as Jeff and Kitty are settling into their position as Alpha Centurion Diplomats, pictures are surfacing of Kitty in a compromising position. Kitty knows that these pictures have been doctored, but that doesn't ease the wariness in her chest. Jeff, on the other hand, doesn't seem too fazed by the photos of his wife having an illicit affair. It seems a little funny since Jeff is known as the jealous type. After being separated for a month, Kitty is dying to have some alone time with her husband, but it seems that that will have to wait until more pressing matters can be addressed. One thing about this book is the strong romance, yet there is sooo much more to this book as well.

Androids and what seems to be like all the birds in the universe are just the least of Kitty's problems. Especially when Jeff and Chuckie vanish without a trace. It's up to Kitty to get them back all while keeping her baby safe and being badass while doing it!

Koch infuses this book with so much humor that it had my laughing out loud in hysterics. I wish I could quote my favorite lines, but I think I would end up quoting the entire book instead. Kitty's POV is so entertaining and delightful, making her so relatable. Reading about Kitty either makes you want to be her new BFF or actually BE HER. She's simply too badass and I love her for it! Gimme gimme more Kitty!

Alien vs. Alien by Gini Koch is Quasar~tastic! Koch catapults readers back into Kitty's world with stupefaction at every turn. Alien vs. Alien emits non stop galactic mediation in all forms. Kitty has the Ambassador's wife "get up" down to a science and the paparazzi can't get enough of her. Sweet lil' Jamie-Kat's teething has thrown a wrench into family life, and Jeff has had to find new digs. Avian chaos reigns supreme and android madness stirs nostalgia for blinkenlights. Jeff and Chuckie go MIA and Kitty will have to use all her superlicious ass-kicking skills to save them. Just when you thought things couldn't get stranger, Koch kicks it up a notch, again. My favorite book in the series, I want more. Kudos, Gini!

As usual Gini Opens wth mental teases, in this case photos of Kitty and Chucky that were photoshopped and it grabs your mind asking questions. Keep reading and the mind begins to become very absorbed, and laughing a bit faster.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jeff and Kitty Martini resigned their positions as Centaurion Division exterminators-commanders to raise their hybrid infant Jamie, who while in the womb sent fluids to his mom that led to her obtaining superpowers. The family moved to Washington DC as head diplomats at the recently established Centaurion Embassy.

Currently Kitty and Jamie are near the Kennedy Space Center visiting her in-laws at Martini Manor. Florida senior Senator Vincent Armstrong arrives from Miami after Kitty kept giving him excuses of being too busy to see him. He shows her naked pictures of Kitty with Chuckie Reynolds though both know they are fakes. Kitty wonders what the originators want to gain from these. Soon afterward, an android claiming Chuckie directed him, assaults Kitty leaving her to also wonder who wants to separate her from her strong support system of earthlings and Cantaurions and why.

The latest Kitty Katt Martini amusing satirical science fiction thriller (see Alien Proliferation, Touched by an Alien, Alien Tango and Alien Diplomacy) is a superb jocular entry that is filled with twists, spins and humor as the heroine seems to constantly step in it. Fast-paced, readers will believe the two species are real (as are other feral ETs); while the Jamie effect continues to nuke the lifestyle of the parents. Fans will appreciate Kitty's nine lives as once again sh*t happens but the tongue in cheek manner hopefully rolls down someone else's hill.
