FICTION for ADULTS: Alien Vs. Alien by Gini Koch

Alien vs. Alien

Kitty's back! This is a great action-packed story. Kitty is on the outside looking in this time as she doesn't have the security clearances to know what's going on and everyone is too busy to get them updated. But Kitty's mind is as sharp as ever and she's had lots of practice puzzling out the schemes of madmen (and mad-women). Soon enough, she's put all the pieces together and is running to the rescue of her family, friends, and the world. Enemies turn out to be friends, friends start looking like enemies, and the Poofs get some interesting company of the guard-critter variety. Great story, great characters!

This story felt more like the earlier books than Alien Diplomacy did for me (as I said in that review, it felt like a transitional book to me). There are various schemes working at once and plenty of puzzles for Kitty to sort out. As a change of pace, a lot of the major players in the series (Jeff, Chuckie, Reader) are off stage for most of the story, and I liked it (although, I'm ready to have everyone back for Alien in the House), although I missed some of the usual dynamics and the banter.

Alien in the House comes out May 7th, and I am already counting down the days to Kitty's next adventure! You can go here to read my reviews of the rest of the books in the series.

4 out of 5 stars

Recommended for: Fans of the series, readers who enjoy science fiction/romance/mystery stories (although, it helps to read these in order)

Cautions: As always, the romantic scenes are described in detail. If that's not your style, you can skip right on to the next disaster or explosion and pick the story back up there.
