Praise for the Alien series:"Gini Koch's Alien books remind us why we read it's fun!" --Kirkus
"A series that shows no signs of slowing down." --Publishers Weekly
"Aliens, danger, and romance make this a fast-paced, wittily written sf romantic comedy." --Library Journal
"For those craving futuristic high-jinks and gripping adventure, Koch is an absolute master!" --RT Reviews
"This delightful romp has many interesting twists and turns as it glances at racism, politics, and religion en route. It will have fanciers of cinematic sf parodies referencing Men in Black, Ghost Busters, and X-Men." --Booklist "Campy, hyperactive, implausibly entertaining, there's a lot of fun here, and more fun to come in future installments."--SF Site
"Gini Koch has created a monster with the Katherine 'Kitty' Katt series that continues to grow." --Gizmo's Reviews "Twelve books into the Katherine 'Kitty' Katt series and Gini Koch is still able to deliver a fast-paced, action-packed thrill ride that stays true to what faithful readers love about the series but still manages to throw in some unexpected twists and turns." --Under the Covers

From the beginning with Touched by an Alien, Gini Koch has drawn me into Kitty Katt’s world and totally enraptured me. Each book in the series is packed full of surprises and a total outside the box realism that keeps me glued to my seat until the last page. Alien Separationis no exception. Where else do you get aliens, comic book heroism, super hot flyboys and clues from super-sentient beings delivered via iPod tunes? Oh, and did I mention the laugh a minute irreverence? Best yet there is that touch of romance, passion, and love I seem to find an absolute necessity in my reading.
In Alien Separation, Kitty Katt-Martini has made it back from the parallel universe she was transported to in Universal Alien. She knows hands down just who the Mastermind is and it’s time to kick some proverbial butt… well, that is until she and a select few of her closest friends and family find themselves slung across the galaxy. Of course, there are plans within plans and it’s up to a very capable Kitty to discover just what’s going on and come to the rescue… not only of her family and friends but the whole Alpha Centauri solar system. Something made a whole lot easier with the assistance of her trusty purse and all the marvels it dishes out in the nick of time. None of this is to discount the help of her companions, their trusty pets or the new alliances she’s made. Oh, I suppose it doesn’t hurt to be a foretold savior and god.
You know I keep checking my purse, but darn it there are no poofies there to come to the rescue and I know for sure that a machine gun won’t fit into it. But darn it would be nice. Then again I’m not trying to save the world or the universe for that matter. What I will find though is a reading device loaded with books that help me take a vacation from reality. I have to admit that Ms. Koch’s books provide some of the best vacations I’ve taken. Things are always dire in Kitty Katt’s world, but there are rewards aplenty. Having the best of friends, a darling daughter and the princely love of the hottest alien out there sure add up on the win side not to mention the devotion of all her alien pets. But I have to admit I hope the challenges keep coming because I’m not sure I want this ride to ever end.
*****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****
If you're reading this review I'm going to assume you're up to date with the series so if you aren't please be aware that there may be spoilers for previous books. For a long time now we have known that there was a Mastermind at play, someone who was orchestrating everything that has gone wrong for Kitty and the rest of her team, but it wasn't until Universal Alien that we finally discovered who that Mastermind was. I have to admit I fully expected Alien Separation to be all about Kitty revealing the news to the rest of her allies and them coming up with a plan to take the Mastermind down so I was a little surprised with the way things turned out. Not because I didn't love the story but because once again Gini Koch managed to drop me down a rabbit hole completely unprepared!
I'm actually going to be deliberately vague when I talk about Alien Separation, I picked it up and started reading without even reading the blurb (this series gets an automatic jump to the top of my to read pile no matter what the description says) and I think I enjoyed it even more because I had no clue what to expect. What I will say is that Kitty and her usual sidekicks are all on top form, they're in the middle of several conspiracies, they make some surprising new allies, kick the butts of some old foes and generally bring peace to the galaxy. It's all in a day's work for these guys! Things are definitely building to a head though, the Mastermind's days are numbered and I can't wait to see how Kitty and co manage to bring them down. I'm completely addicted to this series and I'm just thankful that Gini Koch is such a prolific writer and so I won't have to wait too long for the next instalment.
