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 b...more

Kitty and Jeff have started to settle into their new roles as the Alpha Centaurion Diplomats, a career in Washington politics may not have been something Kitty has always dreamed of but she can fake it with the best of them and she's becoming an expert at dealing with both politicians and reporters. If they were normal diplomats then photos showing Kitty in a compromising position with her best friend Chuckie might spell out disaster but they're actually the least of Kitty & Jeff's worries....more

I'm sad that the body count in this book went so high up, but I absolutely loved Peregrines! Bruno, my man, you rocked! :D

Kitty Katt-Martini und ihre Alpha Centauri bekommen wirklich nicht viel Zeit zum Durchatmen. Kaum hat sie zusammen mit ihrem Mann Jeff eine Verschwörung in Washington aufgedeckt und Bösewichte ausgeschaltet, die die Welt mit Hilfe von riesigen Androiden beherrschen wollten, geht es auch schon ins nächste Abenteuer.

Da ihre kleine Tochter zahnt und ihr empathischer Mann Jeff auch mit den stärksten Blocks nicht geschützt werden kann, zieht sie mit Kind und einem kleinen Tross nach Florida zu ihren...more

Some series start getting repetitive or lose focus after several books, but Gini Koch is still rocking the humor, action, wit and alien loving with Alien vs. Alien, #6 in her Katherine "Kitty" Katt series. I love these books for so many reasons, but mainly because they make me smile, laugh and still manage to keep me in suspense. I don't want to give away spoilers because the surprises are what makes these books so much fun, but the excitement is nonstop. Yes, they are over the top at times, but...more

GIVE ME THIS BOOK! I CANNOT WAIT! *cry cry cry*

Edit: Okay, now that I have it, I don't want to read it. *sigh* I want to read it, but I don't. Washington has not done any favors to the overall story arc and I'm kinda worried this book is just going to be too much thrown at Kitty & Co at once without Jeff and Chucky being there to keep her sane.

Who am I kidding? I'm totes reading this next weekend.

Another edit: Every Monday, I kick myself for not having taken the time to read this over the we...more

Yet another amazing adventure.

This series is addictive and super fun.

I'm amazed how Koch keeps coming up with new, wacky and exciting adventures for Kitty and her friends. Alien vs. Alien is full of intrigue, suspense and has some of the most intense action of the entire series so far.

If I'm completely honest and at my most critical I have to confess that Kitty is maybe a bit too fantastic, a bit too powerful. But if I'm being completely honest anyway I will also have to add that I actually am q...more

Sixth in the Katherine "Kitty" Katt romantic science-fiction series starring Kitty Katt Martini and her troupe of hunky, gorgeous, delicious-looking aliens.

My Take
On the whole, while it was another fun read from Koch---I did enjoy Kitty's rapport with the Peregrines---can I get an amen!---I can do without Bellie and the too many paths with even more cartoonish effects. It simply left me very confused as to who is doing what and to whom when it comes to the intelligence being thrown about. Heck,...more

This was a terrific book! Kitty went through a lot in this book. For the most part she was on her own because no one could tell her anything. For whatever reason, the bad guys wanted Kitty cut off from Jeff, Christopher, Chuckie, Alpha Team, and everyone else important to her. So her think tank became Richard, Malcolm, Len, Kyle, MJO, Olga, Adriana, and the very unlikely Senator Armstrong. Of course, Kitty collected a few more very helpful allies. It took Kitty a little longer than normal to pie...more

Alien vs. Aliens is the sixth book in Gini Koch's Alien series. The series is an action-packed mix of science fiction and romance with a warp factor pace. There's usually little to no time to breathe when you read.

This book begins with, of course, hints that the bad guys are up to something. It starts with the appearance of some faked but potentially still scandalous pictures of Kitty herself, followed by an assassination attempt on Kitty when she's trying to pass a test that will let her in on...more
Kenton Schassberger
Like to begin to laugh within minutes? This book brings up memories of all that led Kitty Katt to the point she is at now, though one may be driven to reread the first books to fill in gaps. This adds new laughs of a feathery touch. To say more would be spoiler so read and feathers are all over.

LOVED IT! I can't say enough good things about these books. Every time I open a Kitty book I can't put it down. This one was no exception! Following her adventures are pure escapism for me; funny, laugh-out-loud, hot, action-packed. Can't wait for the next one.

Love and Kitty.

Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke. But this is no joke just another day in the life of Kitty Katt-Martini saving the world.

I think if I could be one heroine I would choose to be Kitty. Not only is her husband smoking, her daughter beyond cute and she gets to hang out with my love Christopher, Kitty is a total kick ass person. And as always Ms. Koch gives us an amazing fun...more

As I have reviewed many Kitty books before I will try not to go into details I just feel I have said it all already. But I will try.

The book is crazy, but if you have read Koch's books before you already know this. If you haven't then what are you waiting for? Crazy stuff is happening all over the place, Kitty is as smart (in her weird way) as ever. She has a new talent that you will get to see in action. Non stop action.

I do not know what to say, I enjoyed it. There was quite a mystery about wh...more

“Alien vs Alien” by Gini Koch continues the ‘Alien’ series that features those remarkable Alpha Centaurions who are living on Earth. Kitty Katt-Martini is anxious to rejoin her husband after their separation of a month while baby Jamie went through the pain of teething but she never imagined that her companionship would be replaced by that of a bird. Added to this is Kitty’s nebulous security clearance, the existence of compromising photographs, unrest in various hotspots around the world and, b...more

This is already the sixth book of the series, and I've pretty much raved whatever could have been raved about for the past 5 books already.

The Story:

Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini and the rest of the American Centaurion Diplomatic Corps are still recovering from their introduction to Washington D.C. politics, parties, and conspiracies. So when compromising pictures arrive, no one’s too surprised. They’re also the least of anyone’s worries.

“Kitty” Kat is still in the middle of the action. There is a new threat from some new enemies, a new talent for Kitty and no surprise some old enemies show up again. Look of new and surprising friends, great action from some old friends, and more of those wonderful AC’s. Once again Kitty helps save the day.

Alien vs Alien is action filled but the pace seemed a little slower than previous books. I like that as I got to savor more of the characters. There is less of Jeff and Chuck in this book and...more

This was another wonderful action-packed non-stop adventure for Kitty Katt-Martini, her husband Jeff and the rest of the American Centaurion division. This time there are attempts to discredit Kitty with nasty pictures, gifts of guard birds arriving from Alpha Centauri, evil androids attacking, threats of war in the Middle East, and an alien invasion plan, all while the International One World Festival is bringing hordes of people into Washington D.C. When Jeff and Chuckie disappear, it’s up to...more

More like a 3.5 for me, but I rounded up because I do like this series. There were aspects that I loved- Kitty has some growth- always important, all the favorite characters were present, but something was missing. I didn't love the interaction with Reader, it felt contrived. I don't know, maybe one too many "girlfriends" for me but he feels more like a stereo-type than a person to me now. I used to love that relationship- the real friendship there. I just didn't feel it in this book. The Chuck...more

*** This review contains spoilers of all other books in the 'Katherine "Kitty" Katt' series ***

Kitty Katt-Martini is finally settling into her new life as Ambassador’s wife and member of the American Centaurion Diplomatic Corps. Yes, Kitty’s settling right into politics – she’s dodging calls from nosy senators, sweet-talking paparazzi and soon finds herself embroiled in a sex scandal with her best friend, Chuckie. It’s just another day in Washington, really, and the helter-skelter life of Kath...more

This series is like reading an action movie: you never know who is friend or foe, what one liner Kitty will come up next or what new hot guys will appear. In this book Kitty is once again in the middle of everything, despite having her security clearance taken away and being kept out of the loop of important things that concern the A-C's. What I love most about Kitty is that nothing keeps her down or out of the action. She always finds a way to be in the thick of things despite being a new mom o...more

This series is always weird for me to think about reviewing or recommending to others because it isn't easy to describe why I enjoy it. Kitty is not my favorite character, but she is so wacky and then brave and then brilliant on occasion, that all of the things that annoy me about her at times just don't matter anymore. The action and originality of the world that is created in these books are the reason I keep pre-ordering and then read non-stop until I finish even if I have to miss out on some...more

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I have no idea why I'm reading this series. It's cheesy. And it's corny. With extra cheese. And I don't like corn with cheese on it. The dish makes no sense. I like both corn and cheese, but when you put them together you can barely taste the cheese. Which is a net neutral for the corn and a net negative for the cheese. This series is a lot like that. I suppose I'll have to call it my guilty pleasure and get on with the review. :)

The book begins with an...more

Kitty is back in book six to the wildly popular sci-fi Kitty Katt series! It has had its ups and downs certainly, with the last book being my least favorite, but through it all I have stuck around because of the infectious energy Gini Koch brings to the page. Alien Vs. Alien brings the readers back into the fold as yet another conspiracy intent on taking over the aliens and the world immanently threatens.

The last book found Kitty inheriting some powers of her own that seemed to be left over from...more

Wow... just wow...

Once again Ms. Koch dazzles and boggles the mind with her twisty, loopy, ingenious stories. Just when you think that Kitty and company couldn't get into any more hijink adventures, think again. What amazes me is how the convoluted and complex story actually *works*. That as we race along with Kitty and the gang trying to literally save the world and each other, the Matryoshka doll stories get more and more complex as each one is revealed. How Ms. Koch can keep it all straight a...more

More new characters and critters and lots more danger and suspense. Kitty has to deal with an evil android (I liked the way she did that!) and assorted villains, Jeff's new object of affection, blackmail, packages at the doors that have even the poofs upset, more androids, an outer space armada, and little Jamie's talents. Yes, it's non-stop action and vicious adversaries, along with fun relationships and dialogue. Highly recommended, but for adults only.

This series is like so addicting and not because it's amazingly well written. Each installment is more outlandish and over the top but I can't help but get sucked into it. Kitty and her cohorts are larger than life but they don't take themselves seriously so you don't mind. In a world with supersoldiers, superbeings, and a crap load of aliens how can you not have a good time reading.
