Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini and the rest of the American Centaurion Diplomatic Corps are still recovering from their introduction to Washington D.C. politics, parties, and conspiracies. New worries in the form of evil androids running amok, birds of all kinds and from all places creating havoc, a Senator trapped in an ever-tightening web of intrigue, and escalating international tensions all seem tough but manageable. But the disappearance of Jeff Martini and Charles Reynolds during the International One World Festival signals more than the usual nastiness--and it looks like even ACE can't help them. Then more trouble arrives, and even with the best hackers in the world, the full might of Earth's military, and the Wonder Twins on their side, Centaurion Division's outmanned . Now Kitty's racing against the clock to find not only Jeff and Chuckie, but to keep the peace between Middle Eastern countries, all while searching for the bases of super-soldier operations--to stop them or die trying. "Alien vs. Alien" is the thrilling sixth installment of the "Alien" novels.

Gini Koch lives in the American Southwest, works her butt off (sadly, not literally) by day, and writes by night with the rest of the beautiful people. "Touched by an Alien, " the first in her Alien/Katherine "Kitty" Katt Series, received a starred review from Booklist and was named one of Booklist's Top Ten adult science fiction and fantasy novels of 2010. "Alien Tango" released December 7, 2010, with" Alien in the Family "releasing April 5, 2011, and "Alien Proliferation" in Winter 2011. Gini started writing as an excuse to stay up late playing on the computer while listening to rock music and mooning over pictures of hunky men. She's thrilled all that drooling has finally paid off.

"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". Meanwhile, readers who like the smart sf silliness of Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galax"y novels, Lois McMaster Bujold's "Vorkosigan Saga", Pat Murphy's "There and Back Again", and A. Lee Martinez's "The Automatic Detective" will find it distinctively different, for Koch's humor is more in the vein of MaryJanice Davidson in her Undead series, but darned amusing, all the same."--"Booklist " "It's one hot, fast-paced, crazy romp, with plenty of humorous banter to go with the blood spatter and discussions of wedding dresses."--"Locus " "If you like your futuristic adventure with heapings of over-the-top fun and absurdity, Koch has the series for you...A rip-roaring and outlandish romp!"--"RT Book Reviews" "Aliens, danger, and romance make this a fast-paced, wittily written sf romantic comedy"--"Library Journal" "A hyperspeed-paced addition to a series that shows no signs of slowing down."--"Publisher's Weekly" "Campy, hyperactive, implausibly entertaining, there's a lot of fun here, and more fun to come in future installments."--"SF Site" "Gini Koch mixes up the sometimes staid niche of science fiction romance by adding nonstop humor, blockbuster action, and moments worthy of a soap opera."--"Dirty Sexy Books "
