ALIEN COLLECTIVE, book nine in the Katherine “Kitty” Katt has the same hijinks and action as the rest of the series, but I also think Gini Koch kicks it up a notch. There is so much going on that I definitely recommend reading the series in order. Much of the politics and the world involve a long-standing thread that Koch has been building and building over several books.

Jeff Martini and Kitty are up against a lot this time, with an anti-alien ticket threatening to take over and also a gossip columnist called the Tastemaker. As you can tell, a lot of the book revolves around the political side of the series. This is what Koch really focuses on, creating trouble in all aspects of Jeff and Kitty’s life. While this can bog down the story at times, Koch still manages to breathe life into Kitty’s character with her one of a kind POV.

Kitty has always been such a fabulous heorine. But sometimes I would like to see more of a focus on her character. Outside forces are always influencing her actions. It would be nice to see something more personal occur to Kitty that will display more of her layers, apart from how she is when dealing with the political side of the series.

As the lighter side of science fiction, the Katherine “Kitty” Katt series has a lot to offer to readers. With a highly detailed and unique world and stunning character depictions, Gini Koch rises as one of my favorites in the genre. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself enjoying yourself all the way through this book!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
