Review of Alien vs. Alien by Gini Koch

Author:  Gini Koch.
Title:  Alien vs. Alien.
Publisher:  DAW Books.
Copyright:  December 2012.
Pages:  498.
Price:  $7.99 (US).

Overview & Impressions:
Alien vs. Alien is a lite "chick-lit" sci-fi parody/satire starring Kitty-Kat Martini and her Alpha Centaurian husband, Jeff.

Aliens are already here on Earth.  They look like supermodels, have great sex, and can move hyperfast.  The A-Cs are also empaths.  Earth is being invaded by a reptile race who want to wipe out humanity.  There's also the human mad scientists who want to side with the baddies.  The good guys are able to use wormhole technology to get around and employ an army of androids to fight the invaders.

Jeff's family from Alpha Centauri show up with their fleet and put a stop to the reptiles' plans for Earth.  They are still upset at their genetically engineered dinosaurs being wiped out 65 million years ago in an asteroid strike.  However, Earth being ruled by Alpha Centauri finally comes out into the open.

Ms. Koch has all sorts of movie and comic references in her novel.  It's a geek's paradise.  There's also the baby drama with all the human/Alpha Centaurian children, who the invaders want to capture.  The Alien series is at least a half-dozen books to its credit.  It's a change from all the "serious" sci-fi/fantasy reading I've done recently.  Recommended.
