I have to start by saying this is a series best read in order as it keeps building and I'm not really sure this worked very well as a standalone. These characters have been on quite a journey one way or another and a lot has happened and indeed, there are a lot of creatures that have already been introduced. Well stand by, because Ms Koch hasn't run out of ideas yet and her imagination just got cranked up yet again! Oh yes, incredible creatures are just the tip of the iceberg as Alien Separation begins and then it's wham, back to Kitty's usual chaotic life as she discovers just why they have been snatched (beam me up Scotty) and tries to make sense of it.
I think it fair to say Ms Koch is literary Marmite; you love her or hate her. Her heroine, Kitty Katt, is mouthy, full of snarky comments, and quite incapable of tact. Constantly throwing witticisms around and uncaring that many might be offended, but for some strange reason everyone just loves her! She has a gorgeous alien husband but I missed the chemistry they shared in earlier books, if honest. Alien Separation almost felt like two separate stories as the first half felt completely different to the latter chapters. Still, those who enjoy Kitty's unique dialogue will find lots to smile at and the artwork is fabulous.
I do think this book mentions so much that has previously happened that it really needs to be read in order, but if you are a fan, then you will no doubt be delighted with this offering.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
