But will they be able to stop the killer or killers before the rest of the U.S. House of Representatives become casualties?

- Pre-Order Alien In The House:
Kitty is back! Every “Alien” novel that comes out, is like finally getting a piece of your favorite dessert after too long without it! You are always feeling like you could have eaten much more.
I can’t believe we are already in book 7 of the Katherine “Kitty” Katt series. Gini Koch’s books are always a treat to read and Alien in the House is NO exception!
Kitty is back, along with all the friends, family and enemies she has acquired throughout the series. Alien in the House has a bit of a different pace from the previous books in the series, however. It is still a very fast-paced story and there is plenty of action. But, Alien in the House felt more like an in-between book. It was very dialogue oriented, which I LOVE, made us aware of a far-reaching arch from all the books and sets us up for much more action in the future.
We get a lot of Kitty and Martini time in Alien in the House. We also get to catch up with other couples in the series and even see some more budding romances all around. I love that and I love seeing the characters I have come to love from book one, find love.
One thing I did have an issue with was that there are SO many characters in the series, that the year since Alien Vs. Alien came out, meant that it took me awhile to situate myself. But, once I did, Alien in the House was a great political thriller that I could not put down for a second.
I loved Alien in the House, but in a different way from the previous books in the series. I mean, it still had the signature Gini Koch humor I so adore. However, it felt more like a Thriller/Murder Mystery novel than a Sci-Fi and I honestly was cool with that. It was a very interesting change of pace for the series, but a welcome one.
Alien in the House is another great addition to one of my favorite series EVER! I do caution you that, if you haven’t read the previous books in the series, it might be confusing. However, the Katherine “Kitty” Katt / Alien series is so freaking good, that you need to read them all anyways!
