Alien Separation Kindle Edition
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

So go back to the author page and buy book 1. Or head over to your local library. Or some combination thereof. Then come back.
I thought I was going to pee myself I was laughing so hard. I very much enjoyed the hell out of this book, even though it begins with a logical extension of the previous volume and then - because the author can - takes a leap down the "Alice-In-Wonderland" waterslide to the left, depositing us on an almost-unrelated tangent which makes up the bulk of this book's story. That said, I really enjoyed this book, even if the danged thing was over too quickly (which is not a reflection of the plot length nor its pacing - both of those are dead-on - but rather of my penchant to read in marathon sessions until I close the book). It was perhaps especially enjoyable for me as I cut my teeth on the Barsoom, Pellicidar, and Venus stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs - this had the same flavor if a far different execution.
Adventure with humor is a difficult act, even if the author makes it look easy. Clever dialogue, rich detail and characterization in an elaborate mileau, small, easily digestible chunks of romance, and above all an enduring faith in the human spirit makes this (and all the other books in the series) well worth the cost of admission.
I would have liked a bit more re the aftermath of the last book. So much went on in the last book, that perhaps Ms. Koch didn't know where to go with it. She wrapped up the parallel world visit with a few sentences here and there, but no real treatment. She played it out like the excuse her Kitty used for the personality change - nothing to worry about it was the concussion talking. That's that. Then (a bit unbelievable even for Kitty) they're right on in to what to do about the 'Mastermind' but whoops they're transported to another world with sensient animals from big bugs to wolverines. What? OK Koch is on her usual twisty plot path, but really, Kitty not discussing her absence or truly catching up with the people she missed (Mother, Jeff, Chuckie, etc.) is out of character. Again, maybe once she saves yet another planet and gets back to the embassy she'll have her confabs and verbally gush in Kittyisms. Or not. I am definitely no longer interested, at the halfway point in the book, in Kitty or the newly introduced inhabitants or the impending civil war or where Jamie is or if the Horrors will be attacking or anything else that can be piled on to this mess. Sorry, but I am seriously feeling the aptly titled "Separation" and am not inclined to continue.
In Alien Separation Kitty, family, and friends are separated rather quickly right after she gets home from her adventures from the previous book in the series. Of course, that means Jeff and Jamie are separated from her, too. They had just shared with each other the knowledge of who the Mastermind is (revealed in the last book) and were worried about telling Charlie (Chuck).
Not knowing where they are and why, their adventures in a colorful, very inventive world with beings which are both friend and foe kept me immersed in the book. The amount of detail is just right. One can visualize it just like it was happening, yet it didn't overshadow the action and plot of the book. Kitty witticisms are constant, and she and friends/family are in great form, kicking butt and making both allies and enemies like usual. Again, they save the galaxy by the skin of their teeth.
Coming later this year and early next year are the next two books in the series. After identifying the Mastermind, they try to keep it secret so he won't know they know. And Aliens can't lie. Oh, boy... this is going to be good. I can't wait to read the next books.
