Overview

The President and First Lady, aka Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini, don’t get any downtime once the Mastermind has been revealed to the world. Not only do they have myriad high-level government positions to fill, but the scrutiny and pressure on this Administration has gone into overdrive.

The sudden reappearance of a long-forgotten adversary turns out to be the tip of the iceberg. New robots and androids attacking, old enemies making new alliances, and new aliens with interesting abilities almost overshadow the fact that the U.S. still has to host a peace summit at Camp David between Israel and Iraq. It’s clear that while the Mastermind may be down, there are plenty of others ready to take his place—and all that stands between them and success are Kitty and Company.

Kidnappings, rescues, creepy hideouts, a hidden black site, and a domestic dispute that could end Jeff and Kitty’s marriage are nothing compared to finding not one but two hidden labs where dangerous and deadly things are brewing.

But when the President and his entourage finally get to the peace talks, things are no better. Mossad rightly suspects something’s wrong with both their Prime Minister and the President of Iraq. A hidden in-control superbeing, an android replacement, and an army of Fem-Bots turn the peace talks into a Battle Royale that the team might not actually survive. And if they don’t make it, Earth won’t make it, either.

But no pressure.

Kitty Martini’s 13th adventure (after Alien in Chief) opens with her hoping for a much-needed break after helping to stop a villain’s hyper-lethal virus, but the action never pauses in Koch’s fun, energetic series. Alpha Centaurian–American Jeff Martini is now president; fortunately, Kitty’s responsibilities as the first lady don’t interfere with her kicking butt. She’s forced back into action by a series of enemies seeking her help, android doppelgangers, captured pilots, stolen invisible helicarriers, a creepy abandoned mental hospital used as a hideout, and the Roomba of Evil. This high-spirited novel continues the balancing act between banter and action that has helped make the series successful, and Koch fills out newer characters while throwing in the occasional shake-up to keep things a little off-kilter. Fans of Kitty’s snarky, music-driven jaunts into danger will continue finding much to love in a series that shows no signs of losing its kaboom. Agent: Cherry Weiner, Cherry Weiner Literary. (May)

After the resolution of their conflict with the Mastermind in 2015's Alien-in-Chief, Kitty and Jeff are hoping for some downtime, but an old enemy returns, robots attack, and the usual blend of whimsy and exploit are on tap.—MM

Gini for President!” ~ Under the Covers Even with thirteen books in the series, Gini Koch manages to make CAMP ALIEN bigger and better than ever. If you’re new to this series, then I highly suggest reading the series in order. But if the sheer number and size of these books intimidates you, I still think you can pick this book up and find it enjoyable. Koch gives a very brief, but necessary recap of what happened in the last book. Jeff is now President of the United States, which makes Kitty the First Lady. Although they have faced off with the Mastermind, he has also escaped with even of his men, leaving Kitty and the crew cursing their luck. The early parts of this book is Jeff rearranging things in the White House, making necessary changes that he thinks will benefit them all and hopefully prevent any further attacks. What I love about this series is the fact that anything is possible. Who would’ve thought that the Kitty from the first book in the series would end up here? So much has happened in this series and yet every book is as unique and refreshing as the first. With Kitty’s upbeat narration, there’s never a dull moment in this story. And even though the book is heavily convoluted with politics, I still found it easy to follow along. To have this much politics but still maintain that same lightness to the series is hard to do and that’s why Gini Koch deserves some kind of award. Hell, vote Gini for President! What she has done here is truly entertaining. Fans of Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series would enjoy this series. Both these series place a greater emphasis on the world and its politics so if you’re in the mood for something different and that’s not your typical Sci Fi or Urban Fantasy read, then you need to meet Koch’s kickass Kitty!

Too complicated and got lost, and confused many times.

This series has been a favorite of mine since I binge read books 2-7. (Yeah, they were that good.) Since then, I wait with baited breath for the next book to be released, then inhale it as quickly as I can. This time, I got it early and, I ain't gonna lie, jumped the book out of my pre-planned order and read it in one sitting. That's right folks, I stayed up way past my bedtime reading this book. And no shame in my game, I enjoyed every minute of it. So. Things have come along way since the first book and if you haven't read anything else in the series, this is a horrible place to start. Not that you couldn't mind, but why would you? This is an Urban Fantasy Series, not a stand alone, and the events in prior books have shaped both the characters and the over all story line. So do yourself a favor, and start at the beginning.... Or at least closer to the beginning than book 13. This book continues showcasing big, bold, over the top plots and situations, full of action, snappy, witty dialogue and even comes complete with it's own awesome soundtrack. The cherry on top? We have some seriously strong female characters, in this series. And I'm talking besides the titular heroine, Katherine Katt. Can it be cheesy at times? Damn straight. But that's part of it's undeniable charm. This was a 5 star read for me, and I am sure it will stay that way when I re-read it. Because I always find something that I missed that first reading. For me, there's no bigger compliment of a writer when upon a reread I find things I missed on the first go round. Thanks to Netgalley and Berkley Publishing Group for the opportunity to read and review the book.
