“Gini Koch has done such a fabulous job of making this series fun and exciting while taking readers on an adventure that is just as unique and original as the first book.” ~ Under the Covers

If you’ve ever seen curious about science fiction but are daunted by the sheer sizes of the average book, Gini Koch’s Katherine “Kitty” Katt series is one that readers need to try. I find this especially true if you’re a fan of Urban Fantasy and those action-packed scenes and snarky heroines.

Kitty has had a lot of things going on with her life both personally and professionally but one thing that is constant is her upbeat personality and narrative. I find that no matter the situation, Kitty remains unfazed by it all and it really makes me admire her as a heroine. Who else can say they have dealt with a clone of themselves or have shifted to some alternate reality and now must find a way to merge their group back together before facing another bad guy? For Kitty, this is just a day in the life.

Here’s just a little glimpse of what you can expect and love about Kitty:

“A battle will be coming, though, one day or the other. Because it’s time to take the bull by the horns and ram those horns right into the Mastermind’s personal tenders. So to speak.

But at least I won’t be fighting this battle with only a small commando force. For this battle, I’m going to ensure I have an army. And, to quote one of my favourite ’80s glam rockers, it’s time to make the Mastermind Stand and Deliver. For I am a Woman of the Multiverse and I will not allow evil to go unchecked.

Yeah, fine, fine. Let’s go with what’s been working all the time. Yo, Mastermind – just thought you should know that Megalomaniac Girl is back and she’s madder and badder than ever. So watch your step, ’cause I’m coming for you.”

I suggest reading the series in order because Koch likes to build upon what she had done in the previous books. However, there’s been a lot of time between books and I read a lot of other ones and still find myself integrating myself back into this world really easily. I think this is the case because Kitty is just so easy to love that it makes you want to find out what’s been going on with her, almost like you would a good friend. I think Gini Koch has done such a fabulous job of making this series fun and exciting while taking readers on an adventure that is just as unique and original as the first book.

With the identity of the Mastermind revealed, all hell has broken loose and now Kitty and her team are against the biggest threat they will ever face. Kicking ass with a smile on her face, Kitty hasn’t stopped making readers rejoice!

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!
