Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Guest Reviewer - Rowan E: Let me start by saying that I love Gini Koch's Alien series and the latest book, Alien in the House, is no exception.  Koch writes with a frenetic energy that is filled with action romance and a large dose of humor, but this book was slight departure from the norm.  There was still action aplenty but the premise was more about politics and intrigue than fighting the latest in a long line of evil bad guys and creatures. What I enjoyed the most about the book was the closure of many lingering story lines and a renewed focus on some long term evil doer strategies. I don't want to give away any spoilers so I will say that several threads are closed and some of the personal ones move to the  next level. Ms. Koch is brilliant about advancing her characters and making sure there is a significant amount of personal evolution.  I care about these characters because they make huge mistakes and then actually learn from them to avoid repeating and sometimes the lesson hurts.  This is rare and precious to me and makes this series a favorite. I also enjoyed the changes in titles, focus and positions that Jeff, Kitty and the gang had to endure that was started in the last book and continued to advance in this one as the A-C's take on Washington. We also get a visit from some interplanetary envoys who bring their own set of complications as they choose to attend Jeff and Kitty's daughter Jamie's 1st birthday party.  One of the downsides for me is the huge cast of characters and locations.  In this book, the seventh in the series, the cast list is huge and very difficult to remember, especially since I read the first few several years ago.  I almost wish I had gone back to the beginning and read them straight through all over again so I could remember all the little details that I felt I was missing this time.  There are endless "Kitty-isms" that I didn't remember as well as I would have liked and it confused me a time or two.  Also the rapid fire events can be hard to follow because there is very little breathing room between huge revelations and bouts of action. Overall I give this book 4 skulls and the strong recommendation to read them in order and close together.  I am looking forward to the next installment coming in December.

Plenty of Alien hyper-action, but also a foray into mystery genre.

Koch travels between mystery and romance. Frankly, I find her mystery plots to be unsimple and they take precedence over "romance novel" constant "gush". I am going to purchase another of her ALIEN series. --------LME
