Touched by an Alien

Customer Reviews:

Over-the-top and wonderful

By Dee18 "dee" - April 12, 2010

This is the first book in Gini Koch's Katherine "Kitty" Katt series. It is available as both a paperback and e-book.

I really thoroughly and surprisingly loved this book. Seriously, it's awesome.

I found this book because of the cover art. The artist is the incredibly talented Daniel Dos Santos, who draws all of Patricia Briggs's `Mercy Thompson' US covers. I saw this image up on his website as apart of his book covers portfolio - and because I do judge a book by its cover, I went hunting and found it was Gini Koch's `Touched by an Alien'.

The title kind of threw me, and I almost didn't bother. Aliens may be how the science fiction genre got its kick-start, but I wasn't sure about an alien themed book. The closest I've come is Ann Aguirre's `Sirantha Jax' series - which I really love, but is set in another galaxy, not present-day earth. I was under the assumption that any alien invasion scifi book would be along the geeky lines of Star Trek. Boy, was I... read more

Fun, entertaining and different

By Aliza Mansolino - April 8, 2010

While I enjoy urban fantasy/paranormals, I am so very tired of tormented vampires, werewolves, etc. and the tough yet sexy women who love them. I picked this up because, hey, aliens! I really enjoyed it - it was totally entertaining. The heroine is smart, funny, Jewish (how often to do you run across that in UF?), and has a great relationship with her parents. She doesn't wear leather pants and her weapon of choice is hairspray. The hero is too good to be true (he's an empath with amazing, umm, stamina who looks great in Armani) but he's brood-free! It's a fun "girl kills evil alien, meets a bunch of really cute good aliens and falls in love while saving the world" read. Pick this up if you're looking for something a little different.

Campy, sexy fun that's unfortunately heavy on the infodumps

By Pamela "Tea & Fangirling" - October 15, 2010

The cover originally attracted me to this book. Artistically, it's well done. And it features a couple of good-looking people making out while holding guns in front of an explosion.

How could I resist that?

Now that I think about it, "good looking people making out while holding guns in front of explosions" pretty much sums up Touched By An Alien. It's the book version of a B-movie, one that stars Bruce Campbell and that enjoys being campy and silly and as over-the-top as it possibly can be. It was definitely a fun read, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't have issues that made me a little twitchy. I'll start with the good stuff.

Koch's writing is funny and lighthearted, and I found myself laughing out loud pretty often. The major characters, from protagonist Katherine "Kitty" Katt to ridiculously gorgeous alien special agent Jeff Martini to Kitty's parents, were all pretty well-developed, and for the most part, their motivations were understandable... read more
