Being newlyweds and new parents is challenging enough. But Jeff and Kitty Martini are also giving up their roles as super-being exterminators and Commanders in Centaurion Division while mastering the political landscape as the new heads of Centaurion’s Diplomatic Corps. Enter a shadowy assassination plot and a new set of anti-alien conspirators, and nothing will ever be the same…

Our group of characters went through a lot of change in the brief time between this book and the previous one.  Kitty, Jeff and Christopher are officially the new ambassadors for the AC-s and they stepped down as operation leaders, hanged their fighting gloves up. At least they are supposed to concentrate only the diplomatic and political part of the operation but it’s not easy when they are used to the constant fighting and the adrenaline rushes. They don’t feel ready to retire from the field. This creates a lot of conflicts.

The fact that they are going to retire didn’t take me by surprise since it was hinted in the previous book. But I still was a bit reluctant to start the story since I was afraid the action and excitement is going to take the backseat in preference of politics. In some percentage this one came true but not completely. Thank God.

Kitty is not as natural of a diplomat as she is of a monster fighting master mind. She needs to take classes to adjust to her new responsibilities. But don’t fear my friend she can find mayhem and chaos even in the most serene situations. She even recruits new people for her little ragtag team from the most unlikely people. She has an eye to find talent and useful people everywhere.

The bad guys also try a different approach to reach their goal. The goal is the same but this time they not gunning for Jeff and Christopher, they go for the kids. Everybody wants the kids.

I loved Olga character, she knows everybody and finds out the bad guys plans before anybody else but most of the time lets things play out on their own without interference. She is the mysterious grandmother of the bunch.

My Favorite Quotes From It

“Welcome to My Super Secret Life, where people try to kill us on a regular basis, and we thwart bad-guy schemes for breakfast. We’re almost like a reality show, only without the alcohol and hot tubs.”
