Reviews for Alien Proliferation


Booklist Reviews 2012 January #1
The fourth book in the Alien series is a humorous, detailed, and action-packed story that stands on its own, apart from the rest of the series. The narrative style is casual, making readers feel as if they are talking with a close friend, listening to the friend's sotto voce commentary. In the not-too-distant future, aliens have come to earth, but they have been kept a secret from the general population. These aliens can make themselves look like humans and are therefore able to blend in with humans most of the time. They are also endowed with superhuman speed and strength and a variety of psychic abilities. This leads to intrigue among various government and pseudogovernment groups that want to control these aliens, who they regard as weapons. With a pregnant main character, Kitty Martini, this book is likely to most appeal to women, who can sympathize with some of the character's trials and tribulations, as she navigates not only pregnancy but near-constant attempts to kidnap or kill her alien husband, her elite fighting team, and her baby.

Just as Katherine "Kitty" Katt-Martini and new husband, Jeff, discover that their first child has extraordinary powers, they find out that someone wants their baby. The fourth title in Koch's "Alien" series (Touched by an Alien; Alien Tango; Alien in the Family) should be popular with series fans.

Koch's fourth Katherine "Kitty" Katt space adventure (after Alien in the Family) takes things up several notches: the characters develop in interesting ways, the continual banter never gets stale, and there are only a few slow moments. The pregnant Kitty and her super-sexy Alpha Centaurian husband, Jeff, are about to do their own proliferating, and their hybrid baby brings its own set of surprises. Meanwhile, a smoke-and-mirrors plot is brewing against the core of Earth's AC society that will draw Kitty toward a horrific discovery practically at their doorstep, a stark and heartbreaking break in the story's otherwise mostly lighthearted atmosphere. Koch still pulls the neat trick of quietly weaving in plot threads that go unrecognized until they start tying together--or snapping. This is a hyperspeed-paced addition to a series that shows no signs of slowing down. Agent: Cherry Weiner. (Dec.)
