Alien in the House - Early Book Review

Alien in the House (Katherine "Kitty" Katt #7)
by Gini Koch

What is it about:
Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini have learned the ins and outs of Washington politics, not to mention how to prevail in intergalactic war and foil dangerous plots. But, in the aftermath of Operation Destruction, the Gower girls’ powers are burned out, the entire A-C population has been “outed” as the aliens living on Earth that they are, and, worst of all, ACE is nowhere to be found.

Then murder and mayhem are served up at an important dinner party at the American Centaurion Embassy, and when the dust settles Alpha Team and the Diplomatic Corps have more problems than just a dead Congressman.

Is there a single criminal mastermind—or multiple enemies—behind all the conspiracies that want Kitty dead and the A-Cs gone or co-opted to become the War Division?

The return of the best assassins in the business, the reappearance of two individuals long-presumed dead, Agent Malcolm Buchanan felled by something no one can identify or cure, and new technology that can block even the most powerful empath on Earth … all of this means the game’s officially afoot.

Then Vance Beaumont comes to Kitty with a wild theory that someone is systematically killing off the House of Representatives…

It’s up to Kitty and the rest of the gang to find out what’s really going on and why. But will they be able to stop the killer or killers before the rest of the U.S. House of Representatives become casualties? And will the replacement Representative for New Mexico’s 2nd District, who happens to be Jeff Martini, be the next to die?

What did Voodoo Bride and I think of it:
This is a cool and funny read.

You might know by now that we've been fans of this series from the start and we're glad to be able to tell you Alien in the House is certainly worth its salt compared to the other books in this series.

There's a lot going on this time: conspiracies, murder, surprise visits, birthday parties and lots more. This book is packed with action, humor and wit and we were hooked from the start.

We had to keep paying close attention to the story, because so many things are happening and at times we got a little confused about what was going on. But we weren't the only ones: Kitty and her friends were just as confused occasionally. Luckily we could always count on Kitty to clear up confusion and set us on the right track again.

Long time favorite characters made their appearance as well as new characters and we enjoyed seeing some characters get more screen time. There were some hints of what still might come in future books as well.

All in all we got another book to add to our shelf of reread favorites and we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for the next installment in this fun, enjoyable series.

Why should you read it:
It's a fun and cool SciFi read.

Great review Sullivan and Voodoo Bride! I have been struggling with my own review, and it will be posted next week. I have to admit, I am not so fond of the politics as story line. Still, the books is filled with lots of good stuff as well. I liked the two Princesses and of course more Reader-Kitty time.
