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

Things in the "Win" column:

• Sarcasm & snark level over 1000
• Such action, much kick-ass
• New pet introduced: Extremely intelligent killer peacock like creatures called Peregrines. Who had super cool names!
• Got to see Kitty without her usual crutches.
• A female attention whore African Gray Parrot with attitude & a more than decent intellect.
• Jamie, Kitty & The Wonder Twins showing off some of them powers.

Quick & Dirty: This installment is not quite as crazy with the action, angsty-lust or Jeff and Chuckie. Although the books are funny, this one also had a darker tone.

Opening Sentence: Stephen Hawking warns that when aliens arrive on Earth, it’s be a bad day for all the inhabitants of the third rock from the sun.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Alien vs. Alien is the sixth novel in the Katherine “Kitty” Katt science fiction/urban fantasy series by Gini Koch. This ser
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

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

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,

3.5 - 4 Stars

A convoluted, over-the-top, action-fueled book with a soundtrack. If you like this series then this book is on par for the series. The Kitty Katt series is not your typical science-fiction. It’s heavy on snark and has sexy times. Every books has so many twists and turns that you could get whiplash! All the info-dumping could be irritating but it does become handy when you well into the series and have lost track of previous events. For those in search of something quirky you’ll want

Not much time for Kitty and her guys to relax. Her baby girl is teething - and all teeth are coming in at once. Hence, the baby is in agony and her father, being the biggest empath of the galaxy is too. So Kitty packs up the baby and some of her friends and family and heads to her in-laws so Jamie's agony is no longer affecting Jeff. After a few weeks, senator Armstrong comes for a visit with some compromising pictures. According to him and the pictures, Kitty is having an affair with Chuckie - ...more

This series is just so much fun to read and this book is no exception. It's over the top as usual but I found I really loved Kitty when separated from Jeff & Chuckie. Don't get me wrong, I love the gang all together (and I really loved the rundown of whose everyone's Avengers counterpart was), but sometimes the dudes get too much into the macho posturing so it was fun to just have Kitty working through the disaster with the folks on hand. Plus the peregrines of course. I love the AC animals ...more

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.

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

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.

Well, this one honestly nearly killed the series for me. The two biggest recurring plot threads - Kitty being sidelined, Jeff being a douche - moved into the main plot arc for this book. That coupled with Reader's character being, quite frankly, ruined meant I came pretty close to DNF in the first half.

I hate this transition, with Kitty, Jeff and Christopher being powerless in the Diplomatic Corps and Reader (in particular), Serene and Tim being these egomaniacal douches that order ever

Empiezo a tener mayores espectativas con esta serie de lo que luego me encuentro.

Kitty sigue siendo la caña, y los personajes, todos, siguen siendo muy interesantes, pero ya no es como al principio, donde había acción sin parar. Ahora Kitty ha entrado en política. Quizás solo como diplomática, pero sin duda esto irá a más, y aunque los malvados megalómanos siguen considerándola un enemigo a abatir, ahora lo hacen de una manera más sutil o, al menos, no tan directa. Y eso hace que la acción sea m
Mmmmm, this was all over the place. I love the characters, and those adorable Poofs!, but all this political maneuvering is just getting me down. I like the premise, but it shoehorned so much into the book that I felt like I never got the chance to just take a breath, slow down, and relax with the characters. There was always something happening that required Kitty. But for all the problems I had, I did love the latest Royal gifts, and how Kitty is da boss.

Wieder viel besser als der Vorgängerband. Kittys Witz, Charme und Spekulationstalent sind hier wieder auf dem absoluten Höhepunkt und sie ist in mehr Action verwickelt, auch wenn dahingehend das Finale noch ein kleinwenig ausbaufähig gewesen wäre.

This is my favorite one so far and it's because Koch's leading lady and her hubbies were rarely together. Generally, I find the mutually obsessive relationship tedious. In fact, not sure why I keep reading the series...

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
