4.0 out of 5 stars Katherine "Kitty" Katt book 7 4 May 2013
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm going to start this review by telling you that this is a series that needs to be read in order, it is one of my all time favourite series though and it is well worth picking up a copy of Touched by an Alien if you haven't come across it yet. While this review won't contain spoilers for Alien in the House it will contain information about previous books so I wouldn't recommend reading further unless you have read up to Alien vs. Alien.

Just when Kitty and Jeff are settling into their roles as Diplomats things are all set to change again when Jeff takes on a completely new job. Becoming the Representative for New Mexico wasn't exactly his life goal though, especially when the last 2 candidates were murdered and it looks like he is next on the hit list. Jeff isn't the only target though and there have been multiple deaths in Washington over the last few months, each has been made to look like natural causes but the sheer number of bodies is too high to be a coincidence. It is up to Kitty to figure out why each of them were targeted and who is behind their deaths. Is it an anti A-C plot or is something deeper going on?

I'm a huge fan of this series, it's one of my favourites and I Kitty and Jeff are one of my most loved fictional couples. I love the humour that Gini Koch infuses throughout these books and there hasn't been an instalment yet that hasn't had me laughing out loud as I was reading it. The series has changed somewhat over the last couple of books with the focus more on politics than on the gang fighting superbeings like they did in the earlier stories but that doesn't mean that there isn't plenty of action.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really love these books! 25 May 2013
By StumpyB
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I stumbled across Gini Koch's books and would recommend them - aliens, romance, humour and excellent music references make them stand out from the crowd. Alien in the House continues Kitty Katt-Martini's story at a fast, action packed pace - if you enjoyed the previous books, you'll love this one!

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much clutter, did we jump the shark 15 May 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
These books are very much a guilty pleasure series with remind me of the CW series on TV.

That being said at this point in the series Ms Koch needs to pair down her books somehow. The cast of characters has grown to something like 35 and they all need some kind of introduction in the book at various times even for people who have followed the series. This meant that to me it felt that 25% of the time we were just in a recap. In addition to this the book tries to introduce and complete so many different threads of a story (in addition to the pages on just how hot everyone is 9_9) that it felt we had very little time for character development of anyone.

In the last few books we keep seeing larger and larger conspiracies and grander plots I realize its a book for entertainment but I have to suspend so much disbelief when I'm reading that just as regular humans listening to an AC at full speed I get queasy. Gini needs to take an ax to the universe she has created and pare it down somehow. The over complicated plot can be fun but when it seems we spend 3/4 of the book explaining who everyone is that is involved in the super-conspiracy and just what it is that we lose that ability of the reader to connect to the characters.

Simply put while the book was everything this series has been built upon the structure is so massive that hitting all the points the author feel is essential for one of her Kitty books leaves little time to actually tell us a story. I will most likely only follow this series through a library I find that my desire to read any new books can stand a wait until I'm thrown back into the maelstrom.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites in the series 7 May 2013
By Colette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Cover Thoughts: At first I thought this was a pretty boring cover compared to the rest of the series covers. However, after reading the book it's perfect! As usual Daniel Dos Santos tells the story perfectly without giving anything anyway. I'm not gonna say how long it took me to figure out how the title fit in with the story. (I'm a bit slow sometimes!)

It's no secret by now how much I love this series. I'll try to be objective, but it's going to be hard, because honestly this book is one of my favorites in the series. The last few have been good, but I felt like something was missing from them. After reading this book I realized it's because Kitty was so busy adjusting to Washington that I missed her old crew from Dulce. In this book, airborne, Reader, the Gowers and pretty much everyone is back in full force along with a few new faces, whom I adored.

Gini Koch has an amazing voice when it comes to storytelling. She has the ability to make you stay glued to the story and laugh so hard that you get the "you so crazy" look from the people around you. (That is my favorite Kittyism from this book!) Kitty is back and better then ever. What I love most about this series is that no character is ever left behind. I love how every character makes an appearance when you least expect it and new ones are added that make you welcome them into the A-C family. In this book my new favorites were Raj and Vance. Raj is an A-C who helps Kitty and the gang figure out why so many members of congress are dying and Vance we know from previous books is the one that comes to Kitty with this crazy theory of why so many of them are dying. Kitty isn't sure she believes them, but through a lot of events that could only happen to Kitty she begins to realize that maybe Vance isn't so crazy after all and works to help find out the truth behind his conspiracy. I loved how both of these characters brought new life into this series, and while I had a hard time in previous books keeping the DC Crew together, now they are like old friends, and I love watching Kitty get herself out of trouble while saving the world from the bad guys.

Alien In The House is one of my favorites of the series. The humor and togetherness that made the first few books so special is back, and I enjoy seeing how much the characters have all grown since Touched By An Alien. This series just continues to get better and better!

**This is not a series that can be read out of order. I highly recommend starting with Book one of the series.**
**The book was given to me by the author for a fair & honest review.**

4.0 out of 5 stars Kick-ass 9 May 2013
By Blodeuedd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
How does she do it? The craziness that must be Koch's brain, I just never know with this series. Who is the bad guy? How will it end, how will anything happen? But then that is why it's a fun ride.

So what did happen? Well Kitty is trying to find out why people are dying left and right. With her she has poofs, birds and the usual gang, and of course she makes new friends.

There is drama, shootings, death, smexy times, politics, wedding plans and a birthday party for Jamie to plan. Just another normal day in the life of Kitty Katt.

So this review was much better before I accidentally deleted it. Now I do not know what to say. Koch is just insane, all the plot threads here and there. I always wonder how she keeps track of things so that we in the end can find a murderer

The series has changed somewhat over the last couple of books with the focus more on politics than on the gang fighting superbeings like they did in the earlier stories but that doesn't mean that there isn't plenty of action. Kitty always manages to get herself right in the middle of things and Alien in the House isn't an exception to that, the stakes are higher than ever before and she isn't going to make it through without losing some friends and allies along the way. Nobody is safe and Kitty makes some surprising discoveries along the way, what with the appearance of both old friends and enemies previously presumed dead it is hard to know who she can trust.

I have to admit that I was a bit worried when Kitty and Jeff first took the jobs as Diplomats, I was worried that the series would become boring to read and I'll confess that there are times when I miss seeing Kitty out kicking butt with airborne and the rest of her team but there is always way too much going on for me to be bored for even a single second. Kitty and Jeff may not be leading the fight against superbeings but we still see plenty of the faces that we know and love and it is great to see how they are all getting on. I love spending time with Kitty and Jeff but it's also nice to see so many other characters developing their own relationships as the series continues. The series now has so many familiar faces that I do sometimes end up having trouble keeping all the names straight in my head but it doesn't take long to be pulled back into this world each time I pick up a new book. I might have to start writing myself a character list though just to help me remember how everyone is linked together, particularly as we now have more characters hooking up and joining to become one huge family.

Alien in the House has a few heartbreaking moments, ones where I was close to tears seeing what Kitty has to deal with, but it is also chocked full of humour and I chuckled all the time as I was reading it. The story has even more twists and shocking revelations than I've come to expect from the series and although some of our questions have been answered things have been very nicely set up to carry on into the next book. I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on Alien Research to see Kitty and Jeff both settling into their new roles hopefully uncover who is behind the latest plots against the A-Cs. I just can't get enough of these books and I hope this is a series that will continue for a long time to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars exciting science fiction 22 May 2013
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Alien In The House
Gini Koch
Daw, May 2013, $7.99
ISBN: 9780756407575

Two Congressmen died in a car crash and a third is expected to pass way from pneumonia. New Mexico's 2nd Congressional District representative dies while attending a gala at the Centaurion Embassy. The odds of Congressional deaths due to accident or natural causes in a few months are extremely doubtful.

A-C married couple Ambassadors Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini become concerned as she held the Representative's hands just before he died. Kitty's fears multiply when her spouse is named to fill the vacant seat as she wonders if someone targets Congress. As Kitty leads the investigation, she vows that her husband will not join the count.

The latest Alien science fiction (see Alien vs. Alien and Alien Diplomacy) is an exciting A-C thriller that deftly merges humor (due to misunderstandings between the cultures) and peril (from an unknown predator(s). Although the size of the cast has expanded over the course of the fun series to a point of needing a Cecil De Mille scorecard, readers will enjoy Alien in the House of Representatives (Jeff will feel at home with some of the members).
