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! ~ Under the Covers

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!
