Alien Super-Being Exterminator Kitty Katt is expecting her first baby. But the alien attacks are getting more dangerous, and now Kitty and her Alpha Centaurion husband, Jeff, have to find out who’s behind the conspiracy to kill Kitty’s secret agent mom and what caused Kitty’s transformation into a superhuman-and they’ve got to do it all before the baby shower…

My Thoughts

After reading the first couple of books in the series it became one of my favorites even if it’s full of excessive action and it’s pushing the boundaries of credibility even in the paranormal genre. Which let’s be honest not an easy thing to do. Despite this I adore the series with its stupendous humor. It helps overlook the excessiveness of the plot.

Alien in the family ended with the revelation that Kitty is pregnant. This one starts off when she is only weeks away from her due date. But don’t worry there is a detailed recounting of the event from that couple of month we miss. Unfortunately it confirmed my previous suspicion that Kitty and Jeff relationship is going to progress in light speed. I mean after 1,5 year of meeting each other they are married with a kid. It worries me because what else can happen in this part of their relationship. I’m afraid that the romance and the family dynamics are going to take a back seat. There is still more than 10 books in the series and I don’t see where can the romance develop from here. But maybe, hopefully it’s going to be like with the character development which is practically nonexistence since our characters are pretty detailed and finished from the very beginning.

With the first two books it is the humor that sucked me in whereas the third was a really action packed and exciting story. After this I had quite high expectations toward the book and since it’s a really long one the author had time to meet them. She more or less accomplished this but there are a couple of things I couldn’t agree with.

One of my biggest problems with this book was Kitty transformation. Not with it happening, I kinda expected it since she needs it to keep up with her team, but with how it happened. There is also too much explaining going on about it. I think the author could have found a more believable or at least rational solution for this particular event. Oh then there is Baby Martini who is really scary and creepy to be honest.

Overall this book is not as fast paced than the previous ones. A bit more sedate and it gave a chance for the reader to really get to know the characters everyday lives and not just the badass commandoes. There is no lack of humor and Kitty’s sarcasm gets more edge if possible.
I noticed that some of the words or phrases are repeated more and more, and maybe it’s funny at first but after a dozen of times not o much.
